An anthropologist thought he would test these African children
He placed a bowl of fruit underneath a tree and told them that the first one to reach the tree could have the fruit. When he told the children to run, they all took each others’ hands and ran together. They all enjoyed the fruit together.
This is the African concept of Ubuntu.
In my opinion, it is also why Africa is preyed upon by the vultures untamed and let loose by other cultures.
When asked why they didn’t run the course alone, they answered, UBUNTU!
How can we be happy when others are sad?
UBUNTU in Xhosa is roughly translated, “
I am because we are.”
I found this on an African website and wanted to share it with you. Now, if we could just get rid of those vultures.
About Cynthia McKinney
In the fight against bigotry, we stand together, and we must. In the fight against injustice, we stand together, and we must. In the fight against intimidation, we stand together, and we must. After all, a government that launches wars to steal another person’s birthright will do anything to all of us.”
Cynthia McKinney has made a career of speaking her mind and challenging authority. She began on day one of her political life and hasn’t looked back.
With her opinions, actions, and even her sense of style, McKinney has inspired both admiration and controversy.
