Given the wars, famine and diseases that constantly plague the African continent, the failure of people of African descent to rebuild and build empires, including business conglomerates, the multiple manifestations of self-hate and internecine warfare; denying the existence of a curse on Blacks is a tall order…

 

…To repeat: Africa was never cursed nor the intellectually and culturally dark continent it has historically been portrayed to be. Its only curse, and that of people of African descent, is in our inability to recognise that there is no curse, and act accordingly. Up you mighty race you can!
