I know. And...I agree.
National distinctions, IMHO, are political creations illegitimately placed on a land for the purposes of subjugation and repression.---MBM
Right AND wrong. Since you are being such a stickler in this definition.
The national distinctions on the African continent are largely imposed by a conquering European nation. Clearly, not all. But...
Those name-impositions are/were not illegal.
What is legal is determine by who has the power. Unwanted, yes.
Why should I honor that above the natural geographic realities which persist to this day?
Clearly, you don't have to. And if so, you shouldn't.
I was addressing a political truth. Ooops! There's that truth thing again.
I was not addressing right or wrong, rather what is real.
I believe the constant urging of 'hug' the insult IS an insult.
