African-style wax-print is making headlines

sunnubian ·
African Lookbook Apr 21, 2013 Borrowed ideas: wax-print by Jumoke Warritay African-style wax-print is making headlines as designer brands, like Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry, explore the textile in their collections, and celebrities add bold African print pieces to their wardrobes.

You're probably right, because I saw a documentary on this African Art form not long ago, and lo' and behold, who was doing all the talking and promoting her business, some White woman with a European accent .

Some of us need some "40 Acres and a Mule" money for a trip back "home." After we pay our cable bills and heating bills we can barely afford to go across the street. Remember that 400 years of 'FREE LABOR' the Europeans obtained through our expense!!!!!!!!!!!! I believe most of the ancestors got raped, swung from trees via their necks and received whelp marks all over their bodies from whips. Our kids are being shot down in the streets like dogs now; via them and each other. It hasn't been a...

White people (Italians are questionable about that "white" shit, since the southern part Africa), do all this vile terrorism to Africans because they have NO FEAR OF REPERCUSSIONS. N.O.N.E. If Africans fight back, it's incarceration or instant death. Whites just walk free whatever they do to Africans world wide. Then there are those Hoko Boko beasts and other African beasts that are just as bad toward their own people. Africans are just destined to die at the hands of ALL the motherfuckers...

It shouldn't even be up to the Italian government, because he should have never made it out of Ghana. But, what I also don't get, is why in the hell would a grown ass man allow another man to put a chain around his neck in the first place? That racist animal should have been found somewhere with that same chain around his neck.

Re: ADOS Shrinks Reparationist Politics to Fit the Cramped Horizon of Tribalism

RadioRaheem ·
The writer is misinformed. ADOS is not about dividing the Africans that were enslaved by other countries. The purpose is to focus on the legitimate claim of Africans in America that have been enslaved here, built this country, and are due reparations. If the descendants of Caribbean slave nations want to file a claim against their former colonizer, they can and should do so on their own. This matter has been brought to the spotlight because the Democratic Party just get free votes from Black...

I must admit that the writer's point was confusing to me, in that it accuses this movement (ADOS) of tribalsim, supposedly, it appears, because ADOS is only advocating for Reparations for descendants of American slaves. However, from the beginning, each Black nation has demanded Reparations from their perspective former enslavers/colonizers, etc. So, . . .
