R.I.P. Oscar. (1932 ~ 2014)
Anonymous asked: This is frustrating because I understand the impact that colonialism/white privilege gives to the situation. So perhaps white people can never be African? Or that their experience of African culture/Africanism is so totally different?
Their experience as Africans is different. That privilege is really, really beneficial on so many levels. Example: I’ve had white friends who have moved to my country, with only a bachelors, but were able to quickly find jobs way before my friends back home with masters.
So the politicians would be saying how there’s no jobs in the country etc, yet my white friends have never had trouble vs. my black friends who are struggling. They never get to feel the economic back lashes the troubles the countries face…etc. Even my white friends who went to school back home, the same schools as my black friends, they are wayyy better off right now than their black classmates. That white privilege, even if they’re legally African, puts them a step ahead and protects them from a lot. Kind of that old saying “you want to be black, but not be black”; they want to be/are African but show me a white African that wants to live the life of a black African (even a wealthy black African) & I’ll show you a liar.
I follow back
I love this so much
