I would argue that Africans in the Diaspora are taught 24/7, from cradle to grave, to be anti-African. It is done right here on Facebook. We are taught that Africa is primitive, that Europeans named Africa, that we are not African, that Africans sold us, that African features are unattractive, that Africans don’t like us and don’t think of us as Africans, that is it better to be anything other than an African. And many of us believe this. We are programmed to believe this. And all of the while Europeans and Asians gobble up Africa—the very thing that we are taught to reject. Who is being fooled here?
