If there was ever a time for Pan-Africanism to take effect, it would be now- and yet Africa has taken about five steps in the wrong direction. Black lives matter we say, then South Africans go ahead and get #ZimbabweansMustFall trending as if the country is not down enough.

The level of xenophobia and Afrophobia is astronomical! There is no good reason to treat other human beings this way whilst chanting Black Lives Matter and No Justice No Peace.
This twitter user wasn’t impressed and neither was I.
You can't go one week without a crumb of xenophobia, just one. So now that you have "othered" yourselves did you get a treat from those that othered us in the first place?Let me know what you got because it must be SO worth it to hate on your own skin from within African boarders

In 2019, Russian President Putin allegedly said:
Africa will never be independent… Africans believe in Europeans, Americans, and Chinese more than themselves.
The statement was proven to be false, but whoever did say it was spittin fax. Our continent has everything the white man wants, in terms of natural resources. Africa has more riches than the temporary monetary wealth offered in exchange for our resources.
If a conversation about looting and violent crimes must be had, then let’s discuss what colonialism did to us, it’s long-lasting negative impact and how it’s still in effect to this day.
But instead of discussing emancipation, ways to better ourselves collectively…this what y’all would rather do:
1. Burn ’em all you said
2. Throwing bricks?
3. Casually dehumanizing people?
4. Taking being inhumane to another, unfathomable level:
The sad part is, some images are quite old and yet speak volumes to the treatment of foreign nationals in South Africa.
We're busy wasting time and energy targeting black foreigners while keeping a blind eye on a WHITE ONLY town of Orania
Scared of white man to the point that you can't even start a hashtag of #OraniaMustFall

On that note, I’ll see myself out.
