The Stories That Europe Tells Itself About Its Colonial History

by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“She said once she was shocked that her son while being taught Belgian history, was taught nothing about Congo. She said “They teach my son in school that he must help the poor Africans, but they don’t teach him about what Belgium did in Congo.” Of course, all countries are evasive about the past for which they feel ashamed, but I was shocked by what seemed to me not evasiveness but an erasure of history

If her son doesn’t learn that the modern Congo State began a hundred years ago as the personal property of a Belgian king, who was desperate to get wealthy from ivory and rubber, if her son doesn’t learn that the hands of Congolese people were chopped off for not producing enough resources to meet the king’s greed, if her son doesn’t learn that the Belgian government later led Congo with a deliberate emphasis on not producing an educated class, so that Congolese could become clerks and mechanics but couldn’t go to university, if her son doesn’t learn that more recently, even though it was the Americans who installed the Mobutu dictatorship, Belgium was a major force behind the scenes propping him up, if this young Belgian boy, knows nothing about these incidents, then, at some point, they would perhaps no longer have happened because the past after all is the past because we collectively acknowledged that it is so. 

This young Belgian boy would grow up to see Africa only as a place that requires his aid, his help, his charity with no complications for him. A place that can help him show how compassionate he can be, and most of all, a place whose present has no connection to Europe. 

It is not that Europe has denied its colonial history. Instead, Europe has developed a way of telling the story of its colonial history that ultimately seeks to erase that history”

Created a Dailymotion account to upload my recorded Living Single episodes. Only seasons two through five will be posted since the first season is available on DVD. The drawbacks to the videos are that the commercials are included. Also they aren’t the greatest of quality. Sorry about that.

SEASON TWO - PLAYLIST

SEASON THREE - PLAYLIST

SEASON FOUR - PLAYLIST

SEASON FIVE - PLAYLIST

You have to understand that you are a sad woman.
You will never be anything else.
It’s not a bad thing,
It doesn’t mean you can’t ever be happy.
It just means that you feel things so incredibly deeply that they linger even when they’re gone.
It isn’t cool or trendy,
It just is, you are sad.
It exists wherever you are despite the love and the happiness you feel,
despite the weather, despite the sweetness of life, your sadness clings to you.
Don’t be scared of it,
it isn’t a scary thing,
it’s a real thing.
Try to understand it,
Roll it over your tongue,
hold it in your hands,
feel it pressing into your spine.
It is something you inherited from your mother, and she from her mother and so on and so on right back to our mother Eve.
This sadness is a longing,
a signature from God,
reminding you that you don’t belong here, that this isn’t your home.

The new law includes several important provisions for pregnant women’s health in prison. It requires, for example, that inmates have access to mental health assessments and treatment during pregnancy and postpartum, and mandates that correctional facilities offer pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease tests to inmates, along with prenatal, childbirth, and parenting materials. The law also bans the use of restraints and shackles on pregnant women in most circumstances, and allows women access to doulas as long as there is no extra cost to the state.

Minnesota Law Protects Incarcerated Pregnant Women From Shackling, Provides Doulas

only 20 of 50 U.S. states have laws banning the use of shackles on pregnant women who are incarcerated.
