A Black Prayer From A Non-Christian

A Black Prayer From A Non-Christian

May the spirit of Biko and Sobukhwe fill Azania with a deep discontentment and unbearable moral rage. From the youngest to the eldest, let the quest for the land seize our hearts and consume our minds.

May every class room and every lecture hall turn into mourning, with deep meditative and contemplative episodes.

In every boardroom and every bedroom, let there be consternation, a growing anxiety about the appalling state of Blackness.

Let the unearned advantage of land language and wealth enjoyed by white people in Azania become an unavoidable agenda in every cabinet meeting, every legotla and every caucus.

In the mines, in the factories and in the farms, let the spirit of revolt rise with a new resolve to levels never seen before.

Let domestic workers and petrol attendants find their voice and demand their place in the world.

May our soul never find rest until the preservation of white privilege is ended and blackness has been avenged.

We end this prayer only to take up our responsibility to act in order to bring about justice, knowing, as Biko taught us, that "God is not in the habit of coming down from heaven to solve people's problems"

So We Shall Do What Must Be Done
By Whatever Means Necessary
To Return The Land to the Landless

The lesson is that Blacks must not abdicate their responsibility to narrate their story of oppression as experienced by them. It doesn’t matter how much sympathetic others maybe, it remains our duty to tell the world of its atrocities against us and implicate all those who have taken part in our demise even though they may have become allies in the battle field.

Black People have taken to social media in thousands if not millions, using every possible form of communication, from allegory to poetry, including well researched articles and statistics, graphic images of the many dimensions and multi-layers of Black Pain, to no avail.

The teaching medium is officially English and the default language is unofficially Afrikaans. Almost all the teachers are of an Afrikkkaner background. The more things change in this country the more they stay the same. So much for the much talked about 1976 Soweto uprisings.
