I really appreciate you reading and your insightful comments! I agree, this is what our immigration system does. They did it with Asian Americans, South Asians, Arab Americans etc. Before that they even did it with white people. The immigration system is designed to keep minoritized peoples at each other’s throats.
I wanted to talk about why I said Brittany decolonized Nigeria instead of Nigeria fought for their freedom. I am of the opinion that everyone is born free and no one has the right to colonize. So I wanted to express that Nigerians didn’t win their freedom — because they were already free an entitled to self-governance.
at the same time, I feel like the way I worded it maybe strips agency from Nigeria and makes it seem like it was a choice made by Great Britain. I don’t know the right language to express this, but I’m open to suggestions.
- Nigeria gave Great Britain the boot?
- Nigeria evicted their colonizers?
Language matters! Thank you so much for pointing this out. As far as the haters go... Haters gonna hate!
Thanks again for reading,
