REDUCTIONIST AFROPESSIMISM


My sister, it's not that dramatic. I don't believe that the effect of slavery, neocolonialism etc on development in Africa, is analogous to someone cutting off your legs and engaging you in a race. The latter is too extreme.

The analogy I would propose is when someone pushes you down in a race, when you have the ability to get-up and catch-up, because you are naturally a faster runner.

We have it all and we can do it, if we just put our minds to it. We need leaders who would build for us the PROMISED LAND -- we already have the SITE.

(Off to work).
