These are a few pages from the Cuba Solidarity Campaign Magazine dated Winter 2022-2023.
White (Eurocentric) racism is not a ‘clever’ ideology at the best of times – but the sheer stupidity of US anti-intellectualism is the gift that just keeps on giving! The Catholic (Jesuit) Priests – via the agency of French imperialism and colonialism – systematically destroyed the use of Chinese ideograms during their 400-year (ruthless) occupation of Vietnam! Chinese ideograms were eventually replaced with the French version of the Roman-derived alphabet and this is why Vietnamese people today cannot read or write the Chinese script and communicate using only Western words and letters when writing! The transliteration of Vietnamese terms into the Western alphabet was decided by (White) Jesuit Priests who approximated ‘sounds’ and where it took their fancy – completely altered meaning and nuance, etc. Indeed, the destruction of the Chinese traditional script in Vietnam is an example of one of the most effective imperialist offensives in history! The (White) French imperialists destroyed a complete writing system as part of the process of psychologically and physically making it easier to subjugate an entire (non-White) ethnicity!
