I remember talking to a colleague of mine who attended Achimota College and he was recounting how a few parents would just opt to buy new generators for the living quarters of their wards in the school. This ability to offset the constant power shortage plaguing Ghana exacerbates the inequality between the rich and the poor in education.
The main resistance to LGBTQ rights in Ghana comes from two intertwined frames: 1. it is not our culture and 2. the Bible/Qur’an says. These two frames hinges on the same moral plane. I am a very happy student of civil rights history and very much an advocate for progressive social change and inclusivity. So, I am going to tackle this issue from a position of civil rights and social progress frame.
I want to cut through any ancillary commentary and give you why I'm predicting a win for Trump in 2020. Even though the Democrats are my primary frustration, that's not fully why I am making my current assessment. My assessment is based on a number of factors. 1. Trump has no opponents: the Establishment opposition... Continue Reading →
The way graduate school is, most people are loners because we are inundated with work that require us to be hermetic. My friends were basically hi hi friends here and I started to lose my sense of purpose. Coupled with the incessant negative news in the US media (especially the wanton killing of black folk), I literally felt like there was no point in living.
These so-called INCELS call regular people Chads (Tyrone if black man) and Stacys. They think they have the right to get sex from women because they're supposedly nice or gentlemen. The California killer is referred to as "Supreme Gentleman" by the Toronto killer. This is the kind of male entitlement to female bodies that we need to stamp out of male consciousness.
The second reason why I feel sharing these videos are useless as a strategy to stop these murders is because we need not share them among ourselves. We already know the reality of these murderers in uniform. Well, we're trying to reach the white moderate and the empathetic white. I think the evidence shows us this is unproductive either.
Anyone with preliminary knowledge about sexual attraction and intercourse knows that when a woman is sexually attracted to you or 'in the mood' properly, her down there is often likely to become warm and wet.
So what you're looking at here is the Supreme Court saying that because the policeman didn't know the law, he couldn't be expected to obey that law. This is blatantly a violation of the doctrine of 'ignorance of the law isn't excuse for breaking the law' that lawyers and judges always preach to us laymen.
The Wakanda Trope and African Culture: Ubuntu. The idea of an African nation hidden away and purposefully not interested in helping their neighbors is absolutely not African. It is true that African nations and tribes didn't see themselves as one but separate nations in the past, but it is absolutely the case that ever since slavery and colonialism, which apparently happened in the Wakanda world too, African nations have come to each other's aid with the meager resources we had, especially when it came to fighting outside African forces. Take Algeria, take South Africa, take Guinea Bissau etc. African Sensibilities of Ubuntu ie compassion and humanity for fellow humans and neighbors isn't properly represented. The only character who came close to this was Lupita's character Nakia who was out helping kidnapped children in Nigeria.
