Adventure in the forest

It dawned.The sun was leavingits heavenly bedroom.Mighty hunter Agyareturned to the home.He hunted in vainall night in the forest.He was very tired and disappointed.Near the old cedar-treeAgya noticedsome strange creature of the underworldwho looked like hairless horned apewith bat wings.Horror embraced his heart.His body began to tremble.With big difficultyHe shot with arrowthe creature.It thundered.Strong windbegan to blow.Unearthly laughterwas heard in the air.The dying creaturesaid to the hunter:"You are killing me now.But I will be alive again.I will come into your dreamsand your soul will feelhellish torments"Agya came to his village.Touch of death was seenin his eyes.   Poem inspired by traditional Ghanaian tales

Slave Mentality and Eurocentrism: Here and There and Everywhere

Quentin, I read your article on Eurocentrism. I hope others will read it as well, and will share their thoughts with us. I am sure that many wonder why you are so aggressively fighting Eurocentrism here in the United States. I admit I asked myself this question, and my first reaction was to think your article dealt with it from a racial perspective, although you use the term “non-Europeans” and that confused me.Yet the more I thought of it, the more I came to realize that the picture is bigger than we think and it does not only affect black people. It’s not even limited to the United States. I agree that European white supremacy is a business, but is it, ultimately, about color? And who in Europe is the creator of Eurocentrism?I don’t know how much it is known here about the part of the world where I am from...

Mahogany Keys: The Complex Image of the African American Man.Part 3.The Black Man as a Protector


   The Black Man as a Protector                                                                                    Pretend you are walking towards home or towards a store entrance and you walk past an African American male. How many of you assume that he must be a bad man seeking to harm you rather than someone who could save your life? Sadly, most people (especially women) would think that a black male’s presence means danger never protection. Why? Because as we all know, we are biased, we are shown images that depict the African American male as a thug and potential rapist. This mentality has to go. There are so many African American males who serve in the military and risk...
