Blackness as an ethical symbol

We live in a world that has been shaped and moulded within the crucibles of a violent, discriminatory and prejudiced history. A world that has seen certain members of the human race decreeing that others were inferior, the proverbial black sheep of the Homo sapiens, who needed civilizing. 2,075 more words

Decolonisation

Recently I’ve been seeing a lot of posts from angry “land thieves” regarding decolonisation and land reform. They seem to believe that, because the Nguni tribes that now make up the majority of Azania’s population “migrated” from Central Africa into the southern parts of the continent thus nearly eradicating the tribes that had settled on this diverse 1.2 million km² piece of beautiful land, decolonisation is a hypocritical concept coming from the mouths of Nguni people angered by the aftermath of colonialism and, effectively, Apartheid. 582 more words
