"Imagine, Affimative Action -- with teeth."
(I can just see my brother, Asa, shaking his head in the affirmative right now!)
I think capitalism is a boil on the ass of human-kind, particularly since our Black bodies played such a large part in its birth and growth here in America. However, this, is certainly what I thought we would do with it -- either here, or on The Continent if that's what we wanted to do (because I had, and still have no doubt, that we could!).
It seems these brothers and sisters took what they learned about it and went back home -- giving back, as they continue to prosper. And as much as I hate that boil, I just can't be mad at them for that (okay, I gotta admit, the diamond trader did make me uncomfortable, because I immediately thought about -- conflict/blood diamonds, who owns the mines, who's doing the mining and under what conditions. But, I can't ignore how she's not only ensured that African talent benefits from what she does, but that our African cultural heritage is at the forefront of her work as well).
Watching this documentary tonight, I'm once again reminded of Alex Raventhorne's comment on "...and yet they wonder why POC emigrate" over At the Bar:
"Stay where you are celebrated, reconsider where you are tolerated, and flee where you are persecuted."
Think about it Family...
