Kristen Clarke ☎️ 866-OUR-VOTE [KristenClarkeJD] Aretha Franklin was a force behind the scenes during the civil rights movement— donating concert proceeds, posting bail for activists, hosting fundraisers and using her platform to promote voting rights. And she empowered generations of women with her music. #rip#ArethaFranklin[twitter.com]

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] I would like like to know myself. Ironically, it is the Chinese not the West who can make a compelling case that their focus in Africa has been not on spreading ideology but on the practical business of securing natural resources and creating future customers and trading partners [twitter.com]

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 What China will do with African “elites” will be exploitation but it will be secular exploitation: the Chinese will not demand that we worship them as “gods” which is exactly what the European does to this day.

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] There is nothing glorious in Africa that has not been reassigned to “White or non black” ownership.
Ethiopia – Not African Origin
Egypt – Not African origin
Sudan – Not African origin
Mali – Not African origin
The Moorish Empire – Not African
Ancient Zimbabwe – Not African

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 It seems “normal” that ancient Rome was somehow British in the same manner that all these African achievements are somehow not of African origin. Senegalese physicist Cheikh Anta Diop dedicated his life to eradicate this “normalcy.”

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 It may help to mention that, for English speakers to this day, ancient Rome is British because every widely distributed presentation of Rome is filled with folks with posh English accents. This was done to perpetuate the British Empire at the expense of modern Italians.

George Mutambuka 🇰🇪🇺🇬🇱🇸🇿🇦 [TheGiwi] @KinteSpace @Ajairah1 I was surprised when I first discovered Alexander the great was really Macedonian because he is represented as a western European today.
