Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] The most objectionable thing is the way Africans resort to the perjorative use of the term paganism to describe and diminish African religions and with it, demean their diverse and vibrant cultures. The fact so few care is the surest sign that colonialist indoctrination succeeded

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] I can only concur that we can be prejudicial towards whites but not racist.
