You are incapable, you can never make it, you are inferior, just look at you, don’t know who you are talking to, I am not your class in many ways and all sort….
Then the denial; then the rewriting of the history; then the abuse, then someone claiming he discovered Africa or your father’s village, describing you as barbarian, sleeping on the trees and all sorts.
Came back to colonize you, teach you how to eat, how to wear clothes and perhaps talk like him, then and then and then…….
This is the story of African child. This is what he/she was exposed to. This is what he/she was told. This is the situation up till today those there is more accommodation going on. Even at that, look at any social structure and economic one, you will be amazed at who are at the bottom.
Yet, people with this particular colour once colonized the world but because of the relegation, subjugation they are pushed to the bottom where they are not begging to survive.
It is time for the Black colour to regain their identities, dig into the past for onward movement into the future. Africa is not a cursed continent people just have to run their own race and stop the rat race.
Our education should be tailored towards our own needs. We just have to start all over again.
