Dear young African, we are born, brought up, socialized, educated in colonial constructs called countries. Most of our education refuses to carry us out of these constructs. But you are privileged To be on this app, use it before those ‘intellectual’ gimmicks on #BlackLivesMatter
Seek experiences even in your own country. Understand colonialism was white supremacy and violence, this didn’t go away when white people parked at independence only to return next day (neocolonialism). Many Black people have laboured to sort this knowledge #BlackLivesMatter
To be deeply ignorant about the experiences of your own people when there’s so much to connect you is inexcusable. You can get things wrong but without commitment to learn and unlearn you will continue to embarrass and make the journey to freedom harder! #BlackLivesMatter
While you are it also concern yourself with ways in which you are complicit in Misogynoir! How you play into internalized racism and patriarchy to silence Black/African women. Not only on #BlackLivesMatter but everyday!
Patriarchy so insidious, watch the defensiveness, the tendency to thrown ones self at deep end of an issue the way an average young Ugandan man on this app does. It’s rooted in entitlement to space and time to jump in without introspection. From not all men to all lives matter!
