The Inevitable Hypocrisy of Saying “WE” While Pursuing “I”

In the Afrikan view, we are our brothers and sisters keepers as best we can be. While one should not “meddle” as in, impede the path that others may choose for themselves, they cannot fail in the responsibility as parents, as elders, as community leaders to call out what is wrong, fakery included. They do not FORCE their input, but where it is needed and where it is summoned, they MUST respond. We say collectively we want to advance and change, but we also say in the Eurocentric way of hypocrisy that we want to do what we individually want to do without considering the collective consequences. Both of those objectives cannot be simultaneously achieved and until we come to terms with that, we will suffer on.
