I have always been fascinated about the 'Black Star' in the Ghanaian national flag which is translated to represent 'Hope for Africa' because it gave me the opportunity to reprogram my mind and explore the absolutely unique possibility of a star being black. Think about it for a second; how does a black star shine? Is that even possible? (perhaps is a question for a limited or racially-biased conditioned mind). I believe that one day we will wake up to the realization that the colour of darkness is not black and the colour of light is not white, and we will be ashamed of the wide gaps we have created in society because of the needless negativity that has been carefully and systematically curated and associated over time with my #Black and #African race.
