GUIDED AND PROTECTED BY HIS MAJESTY
"We live in a golden age of African identities. Barack Obama presents one model of modern Black/African leadership to the world, while writers like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie present another. The perils of Boko Haram reinforce certain stigmas of African military rule, while LGBTQ activist and author Binyavanga Wainaina challenges our narrow conception of African sexuality. It’s my hope that wherever you are, reading this post and future entries, you will lift your voice and be more than just a murmur in the discussion about what it means to be African in the modern age."
"White people are a very recent invention, and I do say invention. In America it is very clear that many people came here for many complex reasons, but they were not white before they got here. They were Irish or Polish or English or German, they didn’t become white until they got here. And they had to become white in self-defense because I was here. And I was here for them, to work for them to keep them white."
