• Negative Connotations of Being Black

      My guess is that as Africans we have become intellectually subdued and dominated by the white man who gave the concept of meaning to all things and in accrod with their own definitions - Black is Black because the white man thought it appropriate to tag it as such - it could as well have been any other colour - even white if they thought that was the right description for it.

      Regardless of the ascribed meaning, the association of negativity and negative connotations to all things black is another imperialistic impressions created by the whites to help demean and subdue all things Black and of African descent, yet our people fail to realise and instead helps to perpetuate such myths and malapropisms.

      I feel so sentimentally challenged when I hear such vile and negative definitions attached to Black people, I live, work and eat with white people all day and every day, they hate the colour of their skin and want to be as dark as possible, yet those of us who have been so blessed with such dark skins wish we were some thing else - isn't life a parody?."

      Sincerely,

      Philip Orumwense
