Meanwhile America can’t even admit that the global climate disaster is a thing… Yet we’re still arrogant enough to think we can boss an entire continent around. Ridiculous.
The desertification of the African continent is directly tied to imperialism and colonialism. There is a long history of community land management— many “forests” were created by human hands in Africa. When the people were in charge of their own communities and land trees were planted and nurtured, which in turn enriched the soil, kept water and moisture, and supported the growth of agriculture.
The white Iowa farm boys argued vehemently with my African-born and raised Professor on this— they thought that desertification in Africa was due to mismanagement, corruption, and overpopulation by the African nations. It’s strange to me how they were so absolutely against the notion that Africans were the best stewards of their land, and had been for millennia.

Last night I found the "Fursona Generator" thanks to some Tumblr friends. I clicked through a few times and was laughing with tears streaming down my face.
My sense of humor is a bit warped.

nam i love you so much
