fulani-manAccording to my grandfather, it doesn't make much sense to pray for smooth mountains why because smooth mountains are quite slippery making them almost impossible to climb. Wisdom flattens mountains while stupidity turns mountains into deeper valleys. The goat is one of the most stubborn creatures on earth yet in the land of wisdom, the sheep often dies faster than the goat even though the sheep is quite a peaceful and obedient creature. It is good to be obedient and respectful especially towards elders. However, the sheep often takes it to the extreme in the hope of pleasing all mankind which is quite impossible. So at the end of the day, the sheep dies without even knowing it while the stubborn goat continues to enjoy fresh air. Extreme obedience is nothing but stupidity and there is no such thing as "respect" in the word "extreme".

African kidWhether good or bad, Africa is my home and there is no place like home. I love Africa because there is no place like Africa. Even in my second life if God should give me the opportunity (to choose where to live), I would choose Africa why because I love Africa and there is no doubt Africa loves me. Some people don't understand. Some people think they know but they do not know. Some people think they know all about Africa but the truth is that, none of them knows Africa the way I do. I know Africa and Africa knows me.

I was born in Africa, I grew up in Africa and Africa is my home so you must believe me if I tell you there is no place like Africa. If it is true there is a God up there beyond the clouds then I am very sure that God is an African why because Africa is the rhythm of life.

African-youth-paintingWisdom knows no age and wisdom knows no color. Wisdom knows no gender and wisdom knows no nationality. Wisdom knows no religion and wisdom knows no culture. Wisdom has no beginning and wisdom has no end. No wise man is racist and No wise man is ethnocentric. No wise man fights his mother and no wise man oppresses his brother. No wise man kills his father and no wise man butchers his sister. A wise man prays to his god and his god listens to him. A wise man listens and a wise man learns. There is no wisdom in the word "extreme".

I came across a comment on cnn yesterday and I have been thinking about it all day. According to the comment, black Africans are far more barbaric than other racial groups and that explains why black Africans are always fighting and killing each other.

Uganda-Anti-GayDiscrimination is something I hate with passion maybe because of what I've been through as an African. I hate discrimination and I speak against it whenever the topic comes up. I speak against discrimination because I consider all human beings equal. I have never heard of a human being with 3 hearts before. We all have one heart and we all feel pain. Although I hate discrimination with passion, sometimes I have no other choice than to discriminate against evil. Evil is something I cannot truly embrace and evil is something I speak against whenever I see it coming. In a land where HIV/AIDS continues to tear people into pieces, we have no other choice than to weed out some evil behaviors fueling the spread of HIV and AIDS. One of such evil behaviors we need to weed out is homosexuality.

Ivorian-hunterIn the western world, hunting has become just a hobby and in some cases just a game to entertain the public. The main purpose of hunting in Africa however remains just as it was in the beginning of time. We hunt for food. Hunting without a doubt is one of the oldest professions (if not the oldest of them all) in the history of mankind and it remains just the way it was in the beginning of time in Africa. Long away, all humans used to hunt and gather for food. It was a universal profession and in some cases more than just a profession. Hunting was a survival technique and in the age of 'survival of the fittest', it became very necessary for every man born of woman to learn at least the basic rules and techniques involved in hunting. So we hunted for food in the wild and we hunted for shelter. In some cases, we even had no choice than to hunt our enemies down so we could survive.
