Macron Got A Lot Wrong About Africa ... But Made One Good Point

... Despite my criticisms of Macron's comments, I do believe he made a pertinent point when he said: "If we want a coherent response to Africa, then Africans must develop a series of policies that are far more sophisticated than a simple Marshall plan" ...

In a speech in Algeria, Macron called colonization "a crime against humanity".

Whether world leaders condemn their colonial pasts or have something valid to say about the present state of Africa, their sympathies seem superficial.

I agree that it is up to Africans to create effective ways to develop their nations. Sadly, many African countries have been mutilated to such an extent that it has created a chasm that makes collective discipline seem like a pipe dream. But it will have to be achieved one way or another.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
