In the eyes of many, even outside of western countries, Africa is the binary opposition to any and everything. Today alone, Pygmies were used to prop up American and Korean cultures in three different classes. They know not a fucking thing about different African cultures and societies so why the hell speak on it? I am so fucking tired of all non-African persons, honestly. I am so fucking tired of constantly being on the defense. I’m so fucking tired of constantly being made to feel unworldly and intangible in people minds. I’m so tired of being an example, of being objectified, commodified and demoralized. I’m revolted by so called ‘scholars’ of this world. I haven’t been able to even focus on anything because of my rage. What other societies and peoples do you know that have to constantly ‘prove’ their humanity and to constantly defend that humanity to every.single.body, even other ‘minorities’? So much shit happened today and I’m trying to learn how to redirect all of my energy into something positive, but I’m so tired y’all… I’m so tired. I’m tired of crying in bathroom stalls and muffling my voice. The way I’m feeling right now is unexplainable. No one should ever be made to feel this way. So many people, I believe, are at a perpetual state of unconsciousness. Anything that the west feeds them, they ingest.
