Symbolic “decolonization”, new instrument of white power

By Andile Mngxitama

Before you celebrate your oppression presented to you as acknowledgement of black beauty and black excellence, ask yourself this: who curated this symbolic act of black embrace and for what?

The white system has decided that symbolic “decolonization” is the new instrument of white power. Decolonization has been colonized!

I refuse to celebrate. I critically analyze. So too, should you.

It’s permitted empty resistance for the recuperation of white power. This is what it‘s about!
