…will she in the future?

Greetings fellow zobopians! Still reading my copy of a Frantz Fanon book. Reading Fanons’ ‘Wretched of the Earth’ will get one to thinking. Especially this golden nugget of thought:

The continent of Africa was supposed to protect its people from the hostile environment of colonialism and slavery. EPIC FAILURE! Instead, Mother Africa gave free rein to its malevolent instincts; the selling of humans to other humans with ships.

Meanwhile, the colonial mother only protected the African from itself, from its ego, its physiology, its biology, and its ontological misfortune. Colonialism only protected its own social group, (the European), and its own profit.

If Mother Africa can not or will not provide and protect its own citizens, then Africa doesn’t deserve them or itself. Continent Africa should read Frantz Fanons’ ‘Wretched of the Earth’. It could use the lesson for its own future. As for the people of the African Diaspora in the Western hemisphere…that’s another story.

Thanks for reading…until neXt time…
