Capitalist Nigger - Dr. Chika Onyeani (Review)

Updated on April 7, 2011

Capitalist Nigger - by - Dr. Chika Onyeani

This is the Road to Success. Though based on black people, there are very important life lessons for everyone like the Spider Web Doctrine that is quite key in the Road to Success!

If I may quote one of many powerful lines that set this book apart from any other:

"A Capitalist Nigger does not dwell on the accomplishments of others.

He does not dwell on self-pity. He has no time for blaming the system of having denied him this or that.

The greatest thing about this age we live in is that whatever information you need, it is available to you."

Capitalist Nigger

Chika Onyeani, author of Capitalist Nigger: The Road to Success: A Spider-Web Doctrine

An extract of Chika Onyeani's interview with Mail & Guardin during his visit to South Africa in 2005

...What about the possibility that the Pakistani(sic), like the Chinese, have access to cheaper raw materials and commodities because of the lower cost of doing business in their countries?

People in Africa should not demand such high wages. The Indians don't mind working for peanuts as long as it is for the good of their communities.

But there are wealth-gap issues in both India and China.

Why must we concentrate on the negative? In India, the larger part of the population is still poor. So what? India is leading in a lot of ways. If you make a call to [a] credit card company, chances are it would be answered in India. Just because of the way they have been able to do the (sic) things. The reasons we have so many people going to Europe looking for work is because we have not been able to provide jobs for our people.

What would you say to comments that you are playing into the hands of racists by depicting black people as lazy and inefficient?

I don't care about what white people are thinking. It is what we think about ourselves. If we talk about it, perhaps we will stop doing it.

Fearless writer, the book is a big mirror for the black community all over the world.

      Reading this book changed my views in life.. I now see the world for what it really is. I'm ashamed to even talk about our independence in Namibia cos everything is owed by whites, mines, real estate the list goes on.. I wish every African could purchase a copy of this book. the government needs to buy copies for government schools.

      Honestly the book is very much enlightening and agitating. Such books should be some sort of guidance books at schools if our gorvenment was serious enough about its people's future. So I myself believe that apartheid, racism or what ever you may call is because we failed to create jobs or better life for our people and now if you can take a look you will realize that the better life that our people are fleeing their countries for is preserved for their(white people) own community s0 there is no way that you wont get discriminated and hated by that particular group of people and we black people will of course call it racism. We should learn to do things on our own and stop depending on others. Chinese don't complain about racism, Indiands don't and many other races do not complain, it's only we dark skinned Africans with such complains just because we want to live on others backs.

      Amazing book, one of the best I've ever read, a must read for ALL African people:

      "A Capitalist Nigger is endowed with the highest level of intelligence. It is within his power to change the course of Black economic slavery to that of Black economic independence."

      This book is super amazing (forget the 'controversial' title, etc), Dr Chika Onyeani just cuts to the chase. He is quite clear at the fact that he wants to steer the readers emotions.

      He highlights a lot of negative attitudes and behavior of the African people that have to be changed. How we consume everything and produce nothing, in this age. Here are just some of my favorite lines from Capitalist Nigger:

      "A Capitalist Nigger loves money. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the love of money. He loves to live a better life. He loves money to change the poverty and economic slavery of the Black race."

      "It is better to die in the sustained efforts to reach your goals, than to die from fear of not even venturing."

      "A Capitalist Nigger must demand his riches from himself and nobody else. He must have the discipline, the persistence, perseverance and unwavering belief in himself. A Capitalist Nigger is not a whiner, he is not a beggar, he doesnât wait for the manna to fall from heaven for him because he understands that the manna never falls from heaven. His desire to accumulate money and wealth is carved in stone. Whatever barrier is standing in his way, he will break it."

      "A Capitalist Nigger knows that information and knowledge are power. A Capitalist Nigger knows that unless you know your destination, there is no way you will be able to chart a course to reach it. He loves money and the accumulation of wealth. He is an economic warrior. Like a general before he sends his men into battle, he must have knowledge of the strength of the enemy if his men are to defeat him. He does not throw his men into battle, hoping that a miracle will happen. The battle for the accumulation of money and wealth is the battle that needs the greatest amount of preparation and the possession of enough knowledge to ensure victory.

    Sorry, not my cup of tea.

      Capitalist Nigger
      Capitalist Nigger

      CAPITALIST NIGGER excels as an explosive and jarring indictment of the Black Race. Capitalist Nigger: The Road to Success (Timbuktu Publishers, September 17, 2000) asserts that the Black Race, is a consumer race and not a productive race. Says the author, Chika Onyeani, "We are a conquered race and it is utterly foolish for us to believe that we are independent. The Black Race depends on other communities for its culture, its language, its feeding, and its clothing." "Despite enormous natural resources," according to the author, "Blacks are economic slaves because they lack the "killer-instinct" and "devil-may-care" attitude of the Caucausian, as well as the "spider web economic mentality" of the Asian." The author is not afriad to use the most hated word, the 'N' word as a title of his book. He says, "It is not what you call me, but what I answer to, that matters most." The further asserts that "Blacks are economic slaves. We are owned lock stock and barrel by people of European-origin ... I am tired of hearing Blacks always blaming others for their lack of progress in this world; I am tired of the whining and victim-mentality. I am tired of listening to the same complaint, day in day out - racism this, racism that. It's getting us nowhere." "Africans have a stance, 'live for today, let tomorrow take care of itself and be damned' attitude," the author says. "We've become a sheep-like consumer race that depends on other communities for our culture, language, feeding, and clothing. We've become economic slaves in Western society." CAPITALIST NIGGER reserves its harshest criticism for African leaders, who according to Onyeani, have allowed Europeans and others to pillage and plunder Africa's wealth, without anything to show for it, other than more starvation, disease, and dictatorships. "We have as little today than when most of the African countries received independence from their colonial masters," Onyeani says. CAPITALIST NIGGER is an anguished cry to the Black race to wake up, stand up and move on." "We must abandon the victim mentality baggage that we've carried for so long: the notion that somebody owes us something," the author says. "We've got to stop whining and stop begging. The Black race needs to wake up and stand on it's own feet." Says Onyeani, "We need to recognize and learn from others what it takes to succeed. We need to adopt the "devil-may-care" attitude and the "killer-instinct and whatever-it-takes attitude" of the white Caucasian, and the "spider web economic mentality" of the Asian."

      The Broederbond Conspiracy

      The Black James Bond is Born in The Broederbond Conspiracy, Penned by Internationally Acclaimed Author Chika Onyeani From the vivid imagination of Chika Onyeani, Editor of the African Sun Times, comes an intriguing book in which the black James Bond is unleashed on the world and South African conspirators portrayed in his spy thriller, "The Broederbond Conspiracy." Following in the footsteps of his hero Ian Fleming, author of the Bond novels, Chika takes the reader on a wild ride through Africaâs power politics as Africaâs top agent, Chima Amadi, is sent to battle an evil group of apartheid plotters seeking to assassinate a visiting African president to Nigeria, and thereby create disunity in Africaâs resolve to bring apartheid to an end. Chika Onyeani shoots from the hip with his hard hitting portrayal of raw power grabbing and greed as one man tries to out think and out fight a well-financed plan to take over a whole country for the enrichment of a privileged few. Known for being brutally honest and strikingly clear in his thinking, Onyeani received a lot of praise and some derision for his first book, Capitalist Nigger: The Road to Success. This well crafted spy novel, couched on historical saga, will spark immediate controversy in some areas. Despite the intricacies noticed in the writing of the book, "The Broederbond Conspiracy" is a suspenseful and penetrating investigation of inter-African cum international conspiracies of white dominance over the black race. The book also unveils a disturbing image of nascent contemporary African countries, where people are disgruntled and feverishly look forward for solutions. Sure to be a great movie, The Broederbond Conspiracy follows in the footsteps of spy novels by such greats as John Le Carre, Frederick Forsyth, Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum. Intense and hard hitting, The Broederbond Conspiracy will launch Onyeani into that elite fraternity of accomplished writers as he creates a new hero in the lexicon of the super-secret life of intelligence agents.
