Oh Africa!

We wept and bid adieus to the slave ships that left our shores, sweeping most of its resources; our labor, gold and wisdom etc. Today, we enslave our own selves to colonization by conservatives of society. We continue to involve in relations of domination and exploitation many  years after being free. And again tying ourselves down to all forms of rigid culture and backward thinking that does not bring us real independence. Oh Africa, what have we done to our own selves!?
