the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde Exactly. That’s the story of not being able to share my life with a person that viscerally does not know what sharing is: one who is obsessed with invulnerability over being alive. It is a profound level of metaphysical poverty that I blame on the many toxic forms of modernism.

Rowena M. [RowenaMonde] @KinteSpace Your comment definitely resonates. I’ve been wondering what it is that kills our humanity, now I’m going to be looking at modernism in a different way

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @RowenaMonde the history of WWI is deliberately told to underestimate/minimize the toxic-modernist effect on humanity; i assert that J.R.R. Tolkien, his work exists to dramatize this catastrophic loss through fantasy telling

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] Yes, white people, colonialism did set up administration and transport, but the main purpose was not distribution of wealth, but to allow the export of raw materials from Africa to ruling countries. Call it cynical pragmatism

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 do you have details of what the French did to one or more of their colonial infrastructures on independence? …before they left they blew shit up, destroying that infrastructure

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] Invasion and increasing desertification drove many Egyptians south and westward. The Zulu report they themselves were Kemites who left the north many ages ago, seeking greener lands. Diop was able to identify Egyptian linguistic roots in his own Senegalese dialect of Wolof []

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 We should always remember the priority pre-Islamic/pre-Christian African peoples placed on matrilineal heritage when we speak of these things.

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] Telling African Americans to stop talking about Egypt is like telling them to stop talking about racism, which not-so-coincidentally factors in here. In other words, They should stop talking about Egypt when non-blacks get over themselves and stop trying to take credit for it. []

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 It is also _exactly_ like telling European-trained academics to stop talking about the ancient Greeks (while, BTW, modern Greeks are treated like shit).

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 Yes and Diop left us with a scientific basis for Nilotic Pan Africanism while the European tradition of Greek academic heritage is almost entirely political and colonial revisionist.

Puff the Magic Hater [MsKellyMHayes] I have no interest in competitive conversations about oppression between Natives and Black ppl. I simply won’t engage, so pls don’t ever try to tag me in. I hate that these convos even happen, as they strike me as an incredibly harmful waste of time and energy.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @beautifuldeson1 One of the greatest misjudgments made in my life was assuming that education without assimilation was “easy” for “my” people🙊👿 …I approached higher education with a view that @MrChuckD would call “intellectual Vietnam”🛂 and I was biased for a technical education🔬

Jepchumba [digitalafrican] Why is it easier to get nonprofit grants than straight up investments within Africa ? Let me be great please!

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @digitalafrican I can help to answer your question in small, small part by stating that I have a few shares of NAFAX ( and in that instrument is a Kenyan insurance company that I helplessly hope is not owned entirely by people of European descent🙈🏦😿

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @digitalafrican The name of this company is Kenya Reinsurance Corp. Ltd. (and @digitalafrican is from Kenya, right?) so I have been looking for “conventional” ways to invest in Africa and then there is stuff like that is next on my list but I got U.S. fam too 👶🏦👶

Black Truth Manifesto [ZuluPanther] I talked to a black woman today about the future of African people in America. I love talking to older politically conscious black women. She said to me “if black men and women don’t start talking to each other again, we’re going to die off here”. #BlackLove

vegeta sama [elleira__] Black men love them some black women. Just because a couple date outside the race doesn’t mean the majority of black men don’t love our ass

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @elleira__ Wow it’s getting easier and easier to find young sisters and brothers making sense on social media💪👶I have been an adult for several decades and I have *never* heard or seen a BM reject a BW for a non-BW—now what kind of women on average *directly* approach or respond to BM?

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] “Acceptance by white society”. That has been one of the biggest desires of our people, whether or not we want to admit it. It has also been the root of one of our biggest downfalls. Do you agree?

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] White supremacy is a religion. And the god is white skin. And white skin absolves you almost any sin you commit against non whites. And it affords you prosperity often at the expense and brutal enslavement of non white people

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, my person is a product designed and built by Black women for Black women but the customers return the product as defective because of the learning curve: she has to know how these things are designed and why one would “waste” their life building it in the first place.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @BreeNewsome Let me guess based on years of social media experience: no response for the self-described black women who actually support patriarchy which we can infer by the latest British Imperial marriage ceremony. I can denounce patriarchy all day long and will continue to do so.
