Happy New Year

Happy New Year

as you remember:
whites are explorers.
blacks, nomadic.
If you are white, you are an artist.
black, craft-worker/handwork practitioner
whites are doctors & professors
blacks, ‘organic-intellectuals’, witch-doctors and sorcerers.
whites have language.
blacks, dialects
whites have science
we have magic
The power to name
designates to White, Religion
and to Black, superstition
Literature vs fables
&
by same logic Whites have Poetry
and we have praise-singing
whites are families
blacks are ‘support structures’
whites have ideology
we have a hunch
& myths
Oh especially our myths
whites have estates
we have plots
whites have festive season
(Holidays of bottomless Chenin Blanc & Chardonnay flowing all day
where we come to pick up a piece-job and cap expression to two phrases: “im sorry madam”
“thank you for tipping sir”
...till end of Feb)
Blacks have big days
(16, 24,25,26, 31, & 1st)
Oh, I forget Black Friday
today ends that big-day minstrelsy
whites have theme parks & casinos
we have mzoli & groover lounge
This is the logic of Malls vs shopping-centres
The reason Whites are greeted with “have a wonderful day sir”
(by a cashier) vs 'NEXT!' &
‘PLASTIC?’ when you are next in line
whites have houses& communities
we have cribs,
backyarders
& the ghetto-fabulous hood
It’s no wonder they have Spaghetti Bolognese (a specific dish)
and we have ‘ukutya kwecephe’
(which is in reality anything on a plate, so long as it’s not poison)
we are guilty of prejudice and strong feelings of hate
Whites take it a step further, & turn that hate into a social safety-net: racism
whites are trust-fund babies, and heirs to land they put Apart-Heid (separating fence) around
And this is why #decolonization
Happy New Year

Chronicles of a Christian who Reads

Christianity is a big player in the business of interpretation. In precisely this way, it is generative of hegemonic interpretative schemas. Prayer, for starters, can no longer be imagined outside its lingo. Secondly, any appeal to the world of spirit is now bifurcated into God and demons. Devils are black, Angels are white.

Now, when you pause and think about it. The black agenda - in its 'civilized' or in the hands of educated Blacks, in its expression of propertied Blacks who hold tenure in keeping with white sensibilities - has always been welcomed in white power corridors. It has never been an utter no-no for whites to countenance the Black agenda.

Dear Sis Dolly

Dear Sis Dolly

After 25 years of his Rolls-Royce of lies. And my long base Siyaya patience. Trying to build a home, with him in mind, for our children... I found BooSassa in bed with the help, Agrizzi. I would give up my kidney and Louella pair to turn back the arms of time, to uncry the manifesto of tears that elected to condense me into a soapbox of fools right there in front of our creased bed linen and their damp devil may care birth suits.
