Soweto! Soweto! Soweto!
As I walked the paved streets of Vilakazi, once walked by a champion of AFRICA!
The justice I should feel, and embrace seem arbitrary
I paced through a structure that once…
Stimulated the passion for innovation
Omitted the need for violence
Woke up the unconscious
Embraced the pain of injustice
At the end I feel no liberation, no justice, instead I am pondering what's next for AFRICA?
I wonder, as BLACKS are we FREE? Will we ever be free?
From my experiences and that of many I have come in touch with, the unfortunate answer is no. The successful black blue collard still has limited access to resources to expand. The successful black white collard still cannot walk in a boardroom without eyes protruding through him, awaiting the white face to sit and chair the meeting. Internally we value the opinion of others, rather than that of our own brothers, and sisters. Envious, they have something better to offer. If you believe blacks are free, I await to hear from you…
