I hold Safia Caydiid in very high regard. She's a brilliant scholar.
This desire to campaign for a better Somalia should not be waged on a miskiin unknown German scholar but instead a person with such a desire can write a book from his own narrative and could build free schooling, free health clinics and even can enter Somali politics to fix up things. When a country develops economically then it's only natural that the country would be noticed.
But if you waste your time on debating an unknown cadaan guy then what difference have you made when you have taken such a responsibility to be viewed as a Harvard grad and the new generation of elite Somali scholar and activist
Part of the reason why somalis are trapped is that they have no intellectual capital.If we have time i can tell you Story after Story of trying to create an acedemic journal for the first time an academic journal of somali studies. The difficulty of getting people just to write, we will get the money & everything , just write , the difficulty no intellectual capital. So the educated somalis need to become graduated to be serious intellectuals .Intellectual meaning producing ideas. Ideas that are transformative.
Sensei, say it isn't so. She mentioned when SYL put the flag up in Jijiga before the state was created, I just assumed she was pro Somalis. The Ethiopians cannot afford to pay academics, they're begging for aid because they don't even know how to farm in perfect weather conditions. Someone pro Ethiopia is paying her if that's the case, maybe Italy because she has a grudge against the British but fails to mention the brutality of the Italians in the South against the Bantu settlers.
Shadeism? Just because we say 'cadday' and 'madobe'?...when did it create a social hierarchy or affect us in the same way that other countries have adopted shadeism?
i know this will disappoint these pro black clowns like the girls in the video who want to be african american so bad. somalis were never slaves, we were colonized after some somalis signed treaties with the british/italians. but still we fought back, search up the omar samatar rebllion. and also what the mad mullah(sayyidka) did to the british. please stop making somalis look weak like these afro americans.
As Simon Cowell would say, "You two are probably the most disillusioned girls we've ever had in this competition. And that's the truth. I think the two of you are horrendous, you have absolutely zero edge, no originality, I think individually you're weak, I think as a duet you're even worse, absolutely zero chance you guys will ever, ever, ever have a successful career in this, in FGM or in any other means of trying to make Somali culture and Islam in general look bad."
This is cringe worthy and disgusting. These misguided girls are lying on Somali culture and trying to pass off African American and African Bantu issues and complexes as Somali problems. Somalis are a proud people and we haven't been mind effed by whites like the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa. And did these girls actually mention slavery? Acuudubillaahi minashaydaani rajiim. For African Americans, Bantus and some Asian communities (eg. Indian subcontinent)the lighter you are the higher ur social status within their respective communities. For Somalis no such thing exists, as status is completely independent of skin colour and is primarily determined, amongst other things, by the clan one belongs to. You can be as dark as coal and no one would blink twice as long as you hail from a respected clan. Yes, being lightskinned is considered to be a desirable feature for women (not men) by many Somalis, but so is having nice teeth and a nice smile, big eyes, slender nose, being tall, small waist etc. Why single out light-skinnedness as an issue, when for us it's not a status marker used to discriminate amongst ourselves. It's just one of many traits that can enhance, not define, the beauty of a girl. Also, it's important to note that all of these beauty ideals predated colonialism and any contact with whites. Show me one Somali man who would reject an otherwise beautiful Somali girl if she is darker or has tougher hair....trust me u won't find one. I myself, along with many other Somali men I know actually prefer our darker coloured Somali sisters.
These Afrocentric, feminist, social justice warrior Somali girls are trying to erode Somali culture from within. We must remain vigilant and expose their lies and sabotage their nefarious aims at every turn. They're nothing but degenerates.
