Why do most Afrikans and Speakers regularly quote from white books and authors?
Why do most Afrikans work tirelessly to salvage their economies from
it woes and yet have to believe that their woes can only be solved by
reading and quoting the philosophies of white economists?

A lot of Afrikans think they are smart yet they can’t detect the
influx of 21st Century imperialism.
They organises conferences, summits, events, lectures, symposia,
seminars and what have you to create a society of change makers, yet
they still imbibe_pollutesthe minds of the participants with

as this. They understood their own philosophies, ideals and principles
which are securely embeded in the virtues and values of Afrika and the

I’ve shed tears and still finds it difficulty of not a default as to
why the Afrikan is yet the cause of his own problems. The Afrikan’s
thoughts, ideals, philosophies, and principles needs to change, or
