"When an African from Africa tells an African in the Diaspora as the result of enslavement that he or she is not an African it is like your mother saying that you are not her child. It is the worst thing that you could ever say."

Runoko Rashidi (via rasdivine)

I experienced this first hand from my cousin. (My entire family minus myself and two cousins were born in Africa) It is the most hurtful thing to hear. Especially when you go to Africa on a regular basis to stay in touch with your family and to stay true to your roots. My mother is African and my father is American. Nevertheless, I am African.

NEW MUSIC: Omawumi ft Remy Kayz - Somori.

Yoruba slang for a highly respected person in society, Omawumi owns the ‘Somori’ title and delivers a visually heavy music video featuring Yoruba talking drum drummers, traditional dancers, prints and graphics that reflect her vibrant personality, and of course, herself on a throne.

Loooove

Why is it that almost every time you see Africa, it’s always portrayed in a poor and negative way. Example; the infamous “Feed the Children” image. The reason why the media pushes this propaganda of Africa is because it makes it seems as though Africa needs Aid from Big Brother “Europe” to thrive or be successful. Which is COMPLETELY false. Also what this does is create a DISCONNECT from Blacks in America and Africa. Meaning many Blacks that fall for this illusion won’t accept Africa as their Homeland because they have associated these images with Africa. Remember at one point when we were young being African was something to make fun or crack jokes. When we were young we didn’t know any better, now that we are older and wiser we see the ignorance of our past!
