  1. Time for us black people to wake up and realise the plans of our enemies. AIDS, ebola, chikungunya etc were all created deliberately in labs and planted in Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America to eradicate the world's black population so that our enemies can gain full access to our resources in our motherland Africa to continue to selfishly enrich their "first world" civilizations.
