the kinte space [KinteSpace] @NewBlackMan the reluctance of the lady to admit this objective truth is how we know that, yes, women can support (and sometimes simultaneously hate) patriarchy —capitalist patriarchy is really quite hard to beat which why we BM will always appear as losers

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 [twitter.com]

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. [twitter.com]

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.
