No, You Aren’t African!

Keep A Child Alive, you do good work, but…

Please quit with these “I Am African” campaigns!!

Painting yourself with “tribal markings”, and really what the heck does that mean and posing with the illusion of nudity does nothing to make white Hollywood heavy-hitters African, know why? They’re not. They have the ‘privilege’ (remember that word) of washing out those markings, putting on their thousand dollar clothes, and walking off the sets! Know what us Africans get to do, keep being African. Having DNA that can be ”traced back” to Africa doesn’t give you the first idea of what it means to be African.

And we don’t really appreciate the victimization either.

Oh, and the homogenization is getting old.
