Africa, my Africa
Africa of proud warriors in ancestral savannahs
Africa of whom my grandmother sings
On the banks of the distant river
I have never known you
But your blood flows in my veins
Your beautiful black blood that irrigates the fields
The blood of your sweat
The sweat of your work
The work of your slavery
Africa, tell me Africa
Is this you, this back that is bent
This back that breaks
Under the weight of humiliation
This back trembling with red scars
And saying yes to the whip under the midday sun
But a grave voice answers me
Impetuous child that tree, young and strong
That tree over there
Splendidly alone amidst white and faded flowers
That is your Africa springing up anew
Springing up patiently, obstinately
Whose fruit bit by bit acquires
The bitter taste of liberty.

By David Diop

Africa is such a great place, even foreigners desire to have a feel of Africa. How i wish we would rise above our greed and black mentality, Africa will be able to stand any other continent in the world, though it might take several hundreds of years to achieve such feat with this current mindset of the leaders and their love for just power.......

You should not lump all the African countries together though. I know that foreigners desire to have a feel of South Africa, Egypt, Mauritius and maybe Rwanda. But not Nigeria. And I would not describe Nigeria as such a great place unless we want to be insincere and hypocritical. The average Nigerian wants to escape from Nigeria. Even the President does not think Nigeria is such a great place. Let's be sincere with ourselves.
