Wrong Subject

Afrikans often discuss stuff only because the slave master says it is important and they get brainwashed into thinking that its important for them because its important to the system. It reminds of me of the debate some negroes had over “white” and “black” Cleopatra. Since the Cleopatras (there was more than one) were the daughters of invaders, why is this a central question for an Africa-centered scholar of Egypt? It isn’t. That whole debate existed because one Cleopatra was esteemed by the West. I could care less about Cleopatra and her sexually seducing some Romans. In the movies I root for the asp.
