Why us?

When I have time I watch Oprah Winfrey show in the evening. It is amazing how she generously give back to Africa. Given the suffering the continent is going through I always as my self why Africa? Why Africans? My wife says she believes that God is a man given all what women go through she is convinced that God would not subject himself willingly to what they go through as women. Is it a taboo to question Gods race? History doesn’t tell us much about what God have done for Black people. What we know is that more slaves come from Africa. The poorest of the poor in the world are Africans. The most colonised are Africans, wars are in Africa, most uneducated are from Africa, the most ridiculed even by their own kind are blacks. If man was build in the image of God can God let his image, which happened to be in minority in the word to go through all this. What I am going through my God must be going trough that, is God going trough what Africans are going through. May be we are sinners, but those kids HIV kids in Kenya are innocent. Those poor in Chicago are innocent. Those kids in Nkosis Heaven are very innocent? Why them? Is God an African?

Muzi you raise tough questions that cannot be answered easily or with any certainty.

What I want to believe is that God intended us to live with dignity and respect.

Wherever there are poor, whatever the identity given, dignity and respect are absent.

Good to read you broer, and to read you from Kimberley too.

I wish you and Beenz a wonderful new year.
