The BBC is currently soliciting the words of those who have an opinion about Africa in a series they call Why I Love Africa. It is great to read the stories of various men and women on the African Continent speak to why they love the birth place of humanity and civilization.

If you have a deep Love for the home of our Ancestors than you should share it with the world by submitting it through the BBC Web Site.

Why I Love Africa.

There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom. There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with the oppressors. The hammer blows of discrimination, poverty, and segregation must warp and corrupt some. No one can pretend that because a people may be oppressed, every individual member is virtuous and worthy.

My sentiments are similar.

I think this survey is indeed deceptive. I say love your country.

Love Ghana, Love Sierra Leone, Love Kenya, etc.

Have you noticed, Africa is the only continent its nationals are encouraged to 'love'?

Africa is a political entity only to those who see it that way.

Those are the people who carved the continent up into 'North', 'West', 'East', and of course 'South' Africa.

Think of 'East', and 'West' Germany, a conquered nation, 'East' and 'West' Berlin

Get it???

PEACE

Honestly, no.

Our people come from only one place on Earth. It is Africa. National distinctions, IMHO, are political creations illegitimately placed on a land for the purposes of subjugation and repression. Why should I honor that above the natural geographic realities which persist to this day?

I know. And...I agree.

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.

PEACE
