Western fast-food companies trying to expand in Africa are finding that shortages of basic foods like chicken pose big challenges. KFC has been forced to import chicken for its restaurants in Ghana, driving menu prices higher.
Although I am against fast food especially food that has been genetically modified Africa needs more jobs. The article states that KFC doesn’t approve of the way Africans in Ghana Farm Chicken but which may involve sanitation but the conflict also could be that farmers don’t use hormones and certain antibiotics in their foods which can be just as unhelpful as helpful and even worse dangerous. KFC and many other fast food chicken restaurants purchase over sized chicken that has been pumped with growth hormones which manipulates the hormones in your body when consumed.
Skin complexion has became a huge issue in different countries all over Africa, one trend that is popular is skin bleaching. Now fertility clinics in West Africa are advising the Dark-Skinned couples to breed biracial babies. The mission is to breed “Half-caste” babies for the betterment of the country and Africa as whole. It said that the people with fair skin are viewed more beautiful and more appealing than those with darker skin. The term “half-caste” simply means mixed race for example: half African descendant and half another race out of Africa, in most cases European. They want dark-skinned couples to breed these babies using modern science like artificial insemination and or to be intimate with a person of another race without the need of marriage. There’s a focused effort to to create a new society in Africa called the “Half-Caste Society” Which they “believe” will put Africa in a better position.
I found this to be utterly disgusting! This is a prime example of severe self-hate and neo-colonialism. First it was skin bleaching, now breeding “half-caste” to produce lighter babies is crazy and shameful. What this sounds like is a convert attack on Dark-skinned people. Its an organized way to rid dark-skin from Africa. Africans must understand that dark symbolize our glory and legacy. Producing a society of “half caste” children would only lead to its self-destruction. Attention must be brought to this issue!!
Onile is the Yoruban Goddess of the earth. A special society called the Ogboni serves Onile, and one of their particular roles is in settling disputes that involve spilling of blood onto Onile’s sacred earth. She is said to have existed before the other orishas or Gods. Onile is very similar to the Ibo Goddess Ala, in that she represents both the fertile and the fallow earth, the beginning and the ending, life and death. Her name, which means “owner of the earth,” is also seen as Ile.
“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
