In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,
“An answer brings no illumination unless the question has matured to a point where it gives rise to this answer which thus becomes its fruit. Therefore learn how to put a question.” — African Proverb
One question which Africans should retrain themselves to ask is “What if?” I intend to ask and answer several “What if” questions hoping that readers and writers can not only join the conversation but also organize these hypotheticals into realities. The following questions are slated to be written and answered, although when they are answered is still left up in the air.
If the reader wants, answering these questions here in the table of questions would be very motivational and possibly may not even require me to write up my own response.
Here are the questions
(expect more to be added [also order expected to change].):
- What if the Black dollar circulated near exclusively among Black people?
- What if Umar Johnson was a mainstream celebrity?
- What if Africans in and out of Africa identified as African first?
- What if Nigeria was a Super Power?
- What if Mulattos were seen as more white instead of more Black?
- What if Black gender norms were rooted in African Masculinity and Femininity?
- What if Blacks were known internationally for their Math and Science instead of Music and Sports?
