THE AFRICAN NEW SCHOOL OF THOUGHT -- ANST –

 

For centuries, the African continent, which some have labeled the cradle of mankind, has suffered from slavery and colonization. For decades, the continent has been ravaged by totalitarianism, dictatorship and post-colonial exploitation, tribal and ethnic wars and cleansing, humiliating poverty, devastating diseases, bad governance, lawlessness and lack of basic infrastructure. It comes as no surprise that the African continent and its people, the Africans, are percieved as the least relevant, the least competent, the least competitive and the least respected people, of all the continents and virtually on all counts. This stereotypically unfair perception of our people is unfortunate. But it’s what we have to put up with on a daily basis on the streets, at work or even at home watching TV.
