Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”

Many Continental Africans think the “corruption” in Africa is just because there are “greedy African people” who only care about themselves. Not realizing that the situation in many African countries has been manipulated but European powers.
Europeans left Africa and Africans celebrate their “independence” but did Africans really think they would leave Africa alone after it built their Nations and made it what it is today? They secured “insurance”. The corruption in Africa is rooted from outside influences. This is what Neo-Colonialism is, controlling Africa’s resources from a distance.

"For Those Who Have Eyes to Hear"

one125:

From Roy DeCarava’s The Sound I Saw:

why the present is a crutch of

empty

bottles drowning a derelict past

in surrealistic

confusions that ride the future on

platinum hair

and plywood boxes with cast iron wheels

imperiously

impersonal and impervious to everything

hot and cold

"Black man, you are on your own" - Steve Biko (18 December 1946 – 12 September 1977).

September 12th, marks the day South Africa anti-Apartheid activist and Black Consciousness leader Steve Biko was killed in police custody in Pretoria. Biko had been arrested a month earlier in Port Elizabeth where he had been detained and tortured, resulting in him falling into a coma.

Nearly dead and suffering a serious and untreated head injury, Biko was transported to Pretoria by car and died shortly after his arrival at the prison there. Police at the time would claim and broadcast to the world that Biko died due to a hunger strike but an autopsy and photographs taken of Biko postmortem, exposed with the help of journalists Donald Woods and Helen Zille, revealed that he had died as a result of the injuries he sustained whilst in police custody.

Today, nearly 40 years after his death at age 30, we remember a man that fought for an end to the brutality he and countless others suffered and still do today. The fight is far from over.

A luta continua!
