“Time is the greatest money-making asset any individual can possess”
What are you doing with your time?
My colleague was so passionate about the fact that the African part of the history of a notable mathematician is really hidden; you have to search well well to find it. He was going on and on about it.
I told him that I don’t feel very angry with whoever tried to hide the African heritage of the mathematician.
First of all, apart from being born by people who are Africans, what has Africa contributed to his story? What about the European country that gave him everything he needed to succeed? Should that be thrown in the bin just because we want to celebrate his African heritage?
Secondly, I told him that most of the major media platforms today are NOT owned by Africans.
Instead of crying about how no one is supporting your brand or your heritage or whatever, step out there and make a difference.
Blow your own trumpet and others will be forced to join you in blowing your trumpet. America will not invest billions in building strong media platforms then use those platforms to celebrate Africa. Sorry, nobody does that honestly.
Welcome to my world!
