The depression conversation on today's local daily is abstractive. The author doesn't delve into the dehumanizing dynamic of the impact of Imperial capitalism on black bodies & it's dehumanizing maiden;neoliberalism. Many Kenyans know there's something fundamentally wrong with,
the current predatory neoliberalism, how it destroys local industries, fuels the marketization of public social services and the commercialization of sacred and priceless aspects of life fueling unbelievable greed and soulless accumulation through stealing.
Imperial capitalism is dehumanizing and given that it's the domineering (and dominant) social theory worldwide, it's effects on the human psyche especially for those on the periphery who are economically exploited definitely suffer racism, impoverishment and mental health issues.

But hey @kanyewest slavery is a choice right? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‘
Speaking pure truth to Kanyeโ€™s dangerous fantasy.
South Carolina Governor, General, and white supremacist terrorist James H Hammond owned 300 slaves.

This is what he wrote about slavery in 1845.

Only an utter fool thinks slavery was a choice.

So, let me do a bit of story time on @KanyeWest, since he thinks he's out of The Sunken Place. And I can't thank @JordanPeele enough for his metaphor.
*stirs tea in teacup*.
I have a confession. The only reason why I am not mad at @KanyeWest right now is because I have held a petty grudge against him for many years because he had a mother with a Ph.D. who taught Literature at Chicago State University, yet he named his first album, "College Dropout."
I did not mean to hold the grudge that long; but it just continued because of everything I would feel every single time I saw that album and thought about not only his Mother but everything at Chicago State University, home of the Gwendolyn Brooks Black Writer's Conference.
