The United Nations Requests Belgium to apologize for colonial ****
Posted By: Joel Savage on September 18, 2021

Belgium is one of the smallest countries in Europe, however, its colonial rule in Africa defines how such a small country had an enormous appetite to decimate millions of Africans in Congo with impunity. Frankly speaking, Belgium’s colonial crime in Congo is shocking

Who hasn’t heard of King Leopold II of Belgium? He **** over 10 million Congolese and he was honored with statues and many streets named after him in Belgium, yet there is no statue of **** for **** six million Jews.

Racial discrimination against Africans is endemic in Belgium’s institutions and the nation needs to apologize for the crimes committed during its colonization of Congo and make reparations, U.N. experts said Monday.

Belgium’s actions in Congo have long been criticized as one of the worst examples of colonial ****. The Writer, Adam Hochschild alleged in his 1998 book ‘King Leopold’s Ghost’ that Leopold reigned over the mass deaths of millions of Congolese.

“The root causes of present-day human rights violations lie in the lack of recognition of the true scope of the **** and injustice of colonization,” the U.N. Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent said in an interim report on Belgium.

King Leopold’s reign over Congo from 1885 to 1908 was notorious for its ****. After Leopold handed over Congo to the Belgian state, the tiny nation continued to hold sway over an area 80 times its size half a world away until Congo became independent in 1960.

The UN group says racism in Belgium continues today.



This is not an exaggeration because if a country doesn’t support crimes against humanity, why should they keep a statue of Leopold, someone that committed such heinous crimes against humanity?

“We are concerned about the human rights situation of people of African descent in Belgium who experience racism and racial discrimination,” it said. “There is clear evidence that racial discrimination is endemic in institutions in Belgium.”

“The U.N. group said Belgium should consider reparations to the Congolese “with a view to closing the dark chapter in history and as a means of reconciliation and healing.”

“It added that the Belgian government needs “to issue an apology for the atrocities committed during colonization.”

The U.N. group, which will present its final conclusions in September, lauded the Belgian government for its willingness to combat racism.

The Belgian prime minister’s office said the government would read and assess the report before making any comments.

If there is no statue of **** for **** 6 million Jews, why should there be a statue of a king that **** millions of people in Africa?
After the death of George Floyd in the United States of America, the Black Live Matters movement ignited demonstrations across the world, including Belgium. One of Leopold’s statues which were reachable was defaced and removed.

However, the giant one which is not easy to be demolished still stands strong in Brussels, a European city thousands of world politicians meet daily to discuss affairs of the European Union.

Yet, the Belgium government till today pretends they are working hard to give up the stolen and defaced identity of the black man. God only knows best, therefore, time will tell.
