Centuries stolen from us, time that would’ve made Africa one of the most established continents in the world. Instead, time was used to degrade the authenticity of Africa, while extracting that which wasn’t theirs. It isn’t late for us to revitalize our continent. I’m aware of the obstacles we face but, in time we’ll unite and divert from the colonial ways of doing. For now, I will utilize my upcoming years to unlearn 22 years of misinformation. I am taken back my stolen years, Join me!

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
  Transcend hate
  Oriented AFRICA!
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…

Places I visited in SA that was educational, fun, and interesting:
Freedom Hill
Apartheid Museum
Vilakazi Street
Market Theater
Cacoon
VIP

  1. It's up to us to take our freedom but we tend to cling to become free otherwise.For accept everything that follows.

  2. I concur we have to shoulder the responsibility, but years of psycho socialization with the West has impede our judgment. Until we as blacks/Africans can realize that we have something better to offer the world, rather then also taking hand me downs we will never be free (socially, psychologically, financially, etc).
