I shared this on my facebook status and it received a few shares.

“I talk of blackness not because I despise non-blackness. I speak of Africanness not because I detest non-Africanness. I speak of it because for the past 500 years blackness and Africanness were demonised. And so a few of us are trying to buy back the lost 500 years one status at a time. Shifting mindsets one status at a time.” – me
