Africa and we are more than every other day up to date the daily hot pregnant problem Africa keeps us busy this week. Black and white or Black versus White is today the question that requires a reply from each.
These London protesters have opted for Switzerland and white. You condemn racial segregation in South Africa. They protest against the killing of 90 Negroes during clashes with the South African police.
Members of the white race - and mostly younger vintages - shed blood for the freedom of their black brethren.
A large part of South Africa is currently under the State of emergency. The bloody clashes began as many Negroes in protest against the passport requirements apply only to black burned their identification documents.
What was previously the Prime Minister Verwoerd's assassination, were weeks of turmoil. Police terror and counter-terror. Often, there are students who represented the new policy in Africa as the leader of the whites. Call off the strike, and the call will be followed almost everywhere.
Africa belongs to US! Freedom of our lifetime! We are ready to die for our Africa! These are the slogans.
90 black, bloody seriously made this slogan. They suffered violent deaths in clashes with military and police.
"As a Christian nation we will do what is just and right", the Government says it can be 1500 to detain people as suspected agitators.
The Bantus will respond with the March on Cape Town. 30 thousand blacks marching before the police stations and call for the release of their leaders. You want freedom, equality and national independence.
The imagination of many Europeans of Africa is also today still pretty superficial. One thinks of more or less developed country where people with dark skin and exotic customs live a primitive life. Actually, the African peoples have long assumed the way to a future of national independence, which is perhaps still in the jungles at home, will have to go given the new realities of a new vision.
High-rise buildings in addition to mud huts, these are the signs of rapid development in the black continent. For this development, the black Africa in the future expected help from the white world. A common way in a common future is located in the black and the white interest.
With safe instinct for political realities, the English have long since moved their consequences. Here, a Southern Rhodesian politician is introduced as the first black Minister in his offices.
Reluctantly followed the French. In the French Congo, a coloured priest was first President of the new Republic.
Also the Holy See takes into account the development in forward-looking manner. Pope Johannes XXIII. made the Bishop of Rutabo in Tanganyika Territory to the cardinal. Cardinal Laurian Rugambwa is the first Negro in the Sacred College.
Christianity is an important bulwark against the growing communist influence in the colored world, which it is not easy to find the unity between Western civilization and African tradition. The young arms of African republics authority over powerful tribal chiefs often presents serious problems.
But little care the natives, they dance and sing on the anniversary of their Declaration of independence, although many might not know what means this independence and someday may even mean.
Some of the black republics suffer from a degree of uncertainty in foreign policy. Economic problems cause of a rocking policy, which soon is coming to the West, the East soon. Because the East also makes tempting offers.
Thousands of young Africans come year after year in the Federal Republic. -Here are the participants in the Congress of Catholic students in Berlin. They come with great expectations and much open-mindedness, and it is up to us to make sure that out of sympathy not indifference or even rejection is.
If here and there complained about the incidence of colored students, we should not forget what influences he is exposed in our major cities, influences, which can be for unspoiled minds even doomed.
About the experiences of African students, we asked us at the University of Berlin.
(O - tone)
The efforts of professors are beyond doubt. But how it looks in this case with the setting of the patients. Some of them have an unfounded suspicion and some push back even the helping hand, just because she is black.
We have heard hardly a complaint about the relationship to the German fellow students. In many years of joint work, you've learned respect and appreciate. But unfortunately seems to know that the fellow student of today of the partners of tomorrow is just at the University. African students can expect little understanding from wide circles of the population and prejudices and cool distance are what encountered them again and again.
Many complain that they are considered on the basis of the colour of their skin as circus attractions. Scornful remarks from passers-by and prejudice against coloured lodger make life harder than it should be and every official insurance of the equality of all human beings sounds so almost implausible.
A few, very few want to convince themselves that our African guests are as well educated as the German students. Their habits no longer differ from ours, as the habits of Bremer's of which a Wieners and they are only too willing to adapt to our ways of life. Today over 8000 coloured studying at German universities and we are forced to assume that it not only what they are studying, but also where they do matter.
Here dance Catholic students from Africa on the occasion of its Congress in Berlin. You come from a country whose Vergangenheit was identical with the idea of the jungle for us. But the future of this country is the same as with economic and political importance.
These students strive to win, our understanding of a continent, whose drumming call - to leave of an expectant nation to leave our understanding of their homeland.
