Maafa21: Modern Racism in the 21st Century ( Black Genocide )


Hello Sista - Kenya,

You raise an interesting and very important point. In Africa - Zambia which is my area, we have a horrible horrible problem with women not paying attention to contraceptives and no one, especially husbands,not caring if they cannot feed a child but has another and another. There are so many cultural reasons for this problem. For example, while the social services in Zambia DO try to educate the women, there are other sides to the story that by some miracle have to be addressed and absorbed into the culture. The times does not seem to be now. I am sure you are aware that men like a dry vagina in Zambia. I do not know why. So, the women take a certain tree leaf, crush it, mix it with water, and drink it to dry out the vagina. Then what does this do to other organs of the body? WHy do women do this? ALso, if a woman will not have sex and do what a man whats he can send her back to her family of original in disgrace.

On a subtle note, assertiveness is a far cry away. For example. I have been working with my orphans privately since 2007. Through a lot of hard work on my part they have become more broad in their thinking and actions. It is women first. If there is a shuttle coming to pick us up one of the male street orphans will shout "Women first" meaning the women get on the shuttle first. If we are going to dinner, some male will yell out "Women first". There are single orphans meaning they have opne parent and double orphans meaning they have no parent. Beverly has a mother so is a single orphan and very very very poor. HIs mother became very sick. Sympoms to me indicated HBP and Diabetes. From CHicago I had him take her to a private doctor, then a second opinion, then get the meds, and certain foods each day, and on and on. DO you know in a few days, as sick as she had been was proud to wire me that his vegetables were ready to sell at market to make money and his mother had gone off to the market to do so. His mother got dizzy there. I had written saying "Why didn't you go sell the vegetables instead of her?" You know it is so ingrained in them about women's roles, that even the most loving and well meaning sons do these things. Now she is really sick again and may die so he will not do it again. But it is innate and one of the many hard traditions to overcome.

Do I make sense?

Response to issues in Zambia

Greetings Sister Wendy

Thank you for taking your precious time to respond to my email. Very concerned about the issues that you mentioned especially the dis empowerment of women, the orphans and your dedicated work. Taking into consideration what you have expressed about the role of men, not of providers, sounding very much like sexual exploitation, where here are no options for the women for advice and support. Do you have councils of Elder men and women and Are you recieving any support at all? If not and the organisation is registered maybe we can do something productive to empower people in your locality. Get everyone on board to develop and create and train.

I am based in the UK , we are able to refer organisations to international funders for specific project work, so do send me your details :

Until I hear from you then , do keep up the good work

Love and peace

Sister kenyasue
