Nice to meet you and thanks for recognising that i am a sis despite my masculine idenitity name.
yes, you are correct in that some indigenous people, my own an example, have not proffered any interest in the said metal. But they had no metal technolgy. This is despite there being gold in them thar hills found by the europeans who subsequently build their cities and lived a life of comfort and privelige.
But what about the Americas and Eygpt, Sumer, Assyria, China?
Anywhere there were smelting skills there was goldwork.
I am not defending western civilisations by any means but even though they became very skilled metal workers, they learned the processes.
Not without saying lnl know the disasterous consequences of said civilizations to this moment in time....
The written article is confirmation of the west's blantant African agenda and every western organisation in Africa/Congo must be complicate.
Ignorance is no excuse.
e.g. aid workers enjoying "pool Yoga" in a resort whilst murder, rape and starvation are happening...
Deliberate ignorance, turning a blind eye, is a terrifying thing, how can that be fought?
p.s. i admit to being quite opinionated
Bless up, judah
