Im in juba, south sudan
thought this merits a separate post
interesting enough i met an BlackAmerican here in juba the other day
and a) he's republican :o(
and b) he actually used the line, if those people (i.e poor black people) werent so busy getting pregnant as teenagers
and then when he was talking about people from some village here in south sudan...)
he was like, 'my people' ... (talking about how they are hard working and even with nothing... blablabla)
i kept looking to make sure he really was Black
cause he sounded exactly like those come to save the africans but dont really give a shit about black people in their own country paternalistic white folks that i always run into.
send better representatives.
and now everyone here asks me why they keep shooting the black kids in america
(today; what is going on in america? its like our war here? but only it is legal?)
12690403, What other kinds of Americans are in Juba right now?|

hmm, recently met a texan (houston) ex cop whos done afghanistan, iraq, some west african countries etc. - pretty much anywwhere fucked up
biz card says political affairs, iontkno.
only person i'm really cool with is my pal -also in public health
also from texas (dallas), she and i got a lot in common.
in the 5 years ive been here, unless they've been embassy attached (ie military)
i havent met folks doing the work i do
but this places is flooded with all kinds of white folk :o(
please, send better representatives.
wait did you mean in general/everyone? (cause ^^^ im talking about black folk)
usaid types, (mainly white), ex peace-corp types
the usual randumb humanitarian types
we got many us-based ngos and you know how we do in the aid industry (rather import people than hire from the region).
i've pretty much only worked us-based ngos (looking to do better, tho)
would definitely prefer to see more Blacks (not these tho- except my friend L, she's pretty awesome)
12690438, ex ambassador was a black woman|

now *she* was very very cool
i think the whole of juba was sad that she left
i mean we still are.
she was so downtoearth cool
a few years ago she brought step afrika (d.c group)
to come teach kids at this school to step and then put on a show.
ok, id forgotten about that
probaly the nicest shit anyone has done in juba
12690406, Fuck calling racism, it's white supremacy to me. |

and recently did it again
>send better representatives.
i say take what you can get lol!
go with it
when you come back
so damn many ways to romanticize the unknown though
When you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. Live so that when you die, you rejoice, and the world cries.
You cannot hate people for their own good.
12690414, why dissociate in the u.s when you can dissociate in juba?|
