What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Did y’all know about this?

I was always the type to read the history book cover to cover, and this section was almost always skipped or covered in 20 minutes.

If Jamaica could fix a few things this place could be a paradise. The rest of the world as I see it now is shit.  We have a beautiful country all we need is to make sure all who want to improve their lives are able to do so  (opportunity,education etc.)  Then no one would have to migrate and we could make this island great (er).  We are not just  weed, dancehall, and violence this country has so much potential its almost scary.  Lets pray that Jamaica can find its chill in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
