Personally I have always had issues with culture,
Maybe because I am left handed and the system in Africa has always been rigged against my kind
Maybe because I was born and breed in Lagos (south west ) even though I hail from edo state (south south )
Maybe because I’ve only been to my hometown a few times and I’ve never been forced to learn both cultures,
Maybe because I have always stood outside the circle where culture is concerned,
Maybe that’s why so clearly
I see culture cause more harm than good,
I have seen human rights been taken away from human beings all in the name of culture,
Maybe because of the obvious mental enslavement culture comes with,
The backwardness that has led to the underdevelopment of creative minds and the ignorance of our kind.
I understand there’s a lot of beauty in culture, the diversity of our country dishes, dance steps, outfit, language, the beauty in our history, tales of the journey that has led us to where we are today, BUT Why do we refuse to evolve? Why do we refuse to re evaluate some of the practices and realize that a lot of them were founded on little they understood then not the much we have experienced now?
No insults to my ancestors......but for now I choose to remain outside the circle.
