The nation of Ghana is stepping up to the plate and will be formally apologizing for it’s role in the Atlantic slave trade.
Throughout history, we have always put the entire weight of the atrocities inflected upon us, the African Diaspora, solely on the shoulders of the wicked white colonizers. Can you say ” The Woman King ” starring Viola Davis?
However, some African nations and tribes were intricately involved in and responsible for those atrocities.
Mad respect to the Ghanaian representatives leading this two day historic event in Kansas City.
To think in 2022 that a city in Brazil would allow Black children to dress up as slaves and white kids as royalty to celebrate Brazil’s independence day is absolutely ridiculously. This occurred in Parana state in a nation that is over 50% African descent!
Today’s young baseball players in Cuba are no longer believing in the hype of Cuba’s communist rhetoric. To them it is a relic of the past. The goal is to no longer play for the national team but to work their way right into the Major Leagues. That seems to be their #1 priority.
The nation of South Africa is currently experiencing rolling blackouts due to the strain on the electrical grid. Eskom produces 95% of South Africa’s electricity. They use an old antiquated coal-fire system.

I am excited about the new Wakanda movie and the Woman King. It is interesting to me that we do not have very many large productions featuring Black folks and we have two at the same time involving nationhood and both have Black women leading.
I have nothing against anyone leading in the Black community. I do have a problem with athletes and entertainers being propped up as spokespersons for the Black community buth thats another discussion. If we saw movies with nothing but Black men solely ruling with no influence from powerful women I would say thats problematic as well.
