Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] Such sensationalist statement is not only analytically unhelpful – it is also irresponsibly dangerous. Violence is not black thing, nor is it the metaphor for irrational, barbaric, ‘primordial’ African violence that the Western psyche seems to have an insatiable need for. []

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 Humanity (African wisdom-based cultures) is based on _biological altruism_; humanity would not exist without this profound love beyond love. Imperialism is based on the fascist “liberty and freedom” to fuck a mufukka up. One is divine womanhood the other is about being a bitch.
