The Leper and The Octopus; Thought for Today.
"They have driven us like oxen in a rice paddy, the West, without conscience. They raped our mothers, daughters and sisters as they sent their worst perverts after us, killing our fathers, sons and brothers. They have starved, abused and humiliated us.
But they do not see that they have unwittingly prepared us for this approaching catastrophe. They do not even realize that it is for them the bell tolls.
We, the so-called third world, especially Africans, have lived under their yoke forever and today have learnt to embrace this calamity they foresee and dread. What an irony, they have prepared us well for that which they cannot survive."~~culled from The Leper and the Octopus by Michael Dibiaezue
