Amanda Black Starting To Sound Like A Broken Record?:
Ever since Amanda Black dropped her album Mnyama, sis has dropping some pearls of wisdom that she has also started feeling like she may be sounding like a broken record but sis does not care to be honest.
She took to Twitter to express her frustration. She said, “Things are definitely changing, but certainly not any better for black humans. Its getting worse. Getting more and more ripped away from ourselves. Who are we? The revolution starts inside, If any one tells you any different they are misleading you. It begins inside of you.
“The seat at the table IS a seat in the system, to uphold it, to protect it even against yourself and those like you. A seat at the table is a muzzle to keep the rest of “you” at bay to be disillusioned to thinking things are changing.
“There’s too many things to deal with. So start with yourself. Anything outside yourself will reveal its plan only when you’ve worked on yourself. Take time for your wellbeing. You need you. Your people need you. Your family needs you. Heal You. Be Aware of You”
“We need to go back to ourselves. Ubuntu is who We are and have always been. A desensitised people, who don’t remember who they are, their value, their power, and intellect are easy to control, using fear, hunger, poverty, division. Vuka“
Amanda is not just vocal about this that matter to her, a few days ago she showed us just the type of person she is when she became one of the celebrities who have called for #justiceForNosicelo.
