Those were beautiful insightful expressions from Ms. Adichie.
Thanks for sharing, superego - perhaps you noticed your own words:
She carefully, thoughtfully explains
Oooh, she was good. It's not that we disagree with these truths that are self-evident around us; it is the manner it is presented by the likes of superego that some of us find irksome - that presentation that is full of hateful exergerrations that barely touch on the part that WE play in our own misfortunes as Africans.
Hopefully, I will find time to comment further on Ms. Adichie's talk.
Gosh, I love that young lady. I WANT HER!
