“I’ve come to believe that the true splendor of roses shine through their reflection in the eyes of our loved ones. That is why we give roses to people we love; to show them the reflection of beauty and splendor of love in our own eyes, as we see it in their eyes”

“Maybe men who still have the cave-man expectations of women should be sent back into caves. A lot of women will readily volunteer to build such caves free of charge.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“One would expect Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, who is said to have studied history, to know better and act better, but he too rejects all advice and criticism and runs around obliviously in a coach plastered with pictures of his grandmother abusing her captives, including women and children. You might imagine the bigoted Donald Trump to be riding a coach like that in a mock presidential parade in his dreams, but certainly not a twenty first century Dutch royal. I wonder if he ever considered how their Calvinist pomposity affected the psyche of black and white children.”

“Everyone’s got a little devil inside them, I’ve just learned to control mine that’s why you’ve not seen it yet; I advise you to keep yours under control before it ruins you.”

“The press can’t do shit about corruption in Africa without the masses. Everybody knows the offices that ask for bribes and everybody continues to pay. So reporting an incident of corruption in the media is like announcing that the sun rises in the morning.”

“MOUNT PLAASMOORDE
If ever you visit South Africa
And do
Leave the brilliant beaches of Cape Town for a moment
Climb Mount Plaasmoorde Witkruis monument
And you’ll see the victims of apartheid
White crosses marking a thousand white victims
Planted in the earth of a million black victims
They lie dissolved in the humus of the soils
They were too many to have their own marked graves
Too many to build black crosses for
And just too hard to forget about
Because they make the soil under your feet black”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“I DREAM OF A CHARCOAL CHALKY AFRICA
I am as black as charcoal
But that is only my skin color
I don’t need to see hacked white bodies
To know that we are the same on the inside
I feel the same anguish and disgust for the innocent
Murdered black South Africans during apartheid
Murdered white South Africans post-apartheid
We might not be there to fight apartheid era atrocities
But we are here now and must prevent post-apartheid atrocities
Murdering innocent whites will not bring back murdered blacks

I challenge you to search online now
Google ‘South African farm murders’
And see if you can look at the gruesome pictures
Of innocent children, women and men
Do we need more people to be horribly hacked to death?
Before we stop the divisive rhetoric of the extreme left?
We made a mistake letting apartheid drag on so long
But must we repeat that mistake with post-apartheid massacres?
Some of these murdered whites fought against apartheid
These murdered children didn’t even know about apartheid

Don’t take away your eyes now!
No, don’t you dare take your eyes off those pictures!
The real apartheid criminals are rich and well protected
Killing these innocent people is not justice
It is inhuman; it is cowardice
Don’t look away and don’t hold back the tears
It is not only a cry for white victims
It is not only a cry for black victims
It is a cry for a better South Africa
A cry for a richer, charcoal, chalky Africa”

“Life is like the wind on the ocean; if it is against you, it doesn’t really matter what direction it comes from or what direction it blows. It also doesn’t matter what you do or fail to do. So you are better off doing whatever you want.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“Human hearts are made to bleed at the sight a precious item destroyed, irrespective of who owns the item.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“The Dutch Reformed Church was the state church of the apartheid regime and a fervent supporter of apartheid; it inspired and condoned rape, abduction and murder.”

“There is no pain in losing what you never had.”

“There is hardly any other country that got as filthy rich through human trafficking and slave trade as the Netherlands.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“The Dutch West India Company and the Dutch East India Company, which were the biggest slave trading companies in history, enjoyed monopolies over the shipment and sale of African slaves.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“Did you know that even 50 years after all other countries had abolished slavery, the Netherlands refused to?”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“Just as the Netherlands was the last country to abolish slavery, they are still the last one opulently celebrating racism; the English had to force the Dutch to abolish slavery in the late 19th century and now the US and the UN are forcing them to stop celebrating bigotry in the 21st century”

“I’m saving my free time for when I am dead; I figured I will need a lot of time in the next life to reflect on what the fuck is wrong with this life.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“Some say your whole life appears before you like a TV when someone is about to shoot you, but the reality is you barely have any brain control beyond thinking about the muzzle and the finger on the trigger.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“Pointing a gun at a strong-minded person is just as inconvenient as wearing a bifocal. There are two realities side-by-side; one would end shortly and the other had long-term potential.”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“POVERTY CRIME
When you push people
Into the throes of poverty
They tend to think their value low
And so do they yours
They will not think it grave
To lose their low valued lives
And so will they not yours”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“GHOSTS IN THE MIND
There are no ghosts among the living
The only real ghosts exist in our minds
So fear not the dead but the living
Because the living can harm but not their ghost

Have you ever seen a dead man risen?
Don’t you see that nobody comes from the grave?
It’s because the dead are nice to each other
Even the vilest repent, and are kind to their neighbors
Each one content with the land of their lying”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“MY DEAREST MY EVER CRUSH
I couldn’t have wished anything more
Than that the spaces between my fingers
Were filled with yours
As I strolled and sample the best of NYC today
I wish that every wish become real, and all dreams true
Because in my dreams I am always with you
Our friends both envy us and rejoice for us
We are ever madly in love and think less of who cares
I can’t wait to see you again
True Love”
Mawuena Addo, Roses in the Rainbow
“1. If there is a God, I believe he is color-blind because those who believe in God see him as the source of light. And light is nothing but a well-blended rainbow; but as it turns out, in our rainbow world, we have almost always opted for the less enlightening choices that have kept the racial colors rather well separated.”

“There is no point in dissecting the notes of a boring tune for beauty; if religion is fake, why go about asking people how they fake it?”
