A young girl learns how to cook in the family compound in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
Not long in the past, the nuclear family was heralded as the beacon of stability and harmony all around the world. People were once strongly encouraged to maintain two-parent, husband/wife families with children—even in the neoliberal, globalist west.

The Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors, the METHA, fears the past. With this fear, which he wields, he also fears the present. It is as if he wishes to run away from the past, evade the present and somehow—and this is what he hopes—to land somewhere between Heaven and his own dreams. At least this is the Metha’s fantasy. The Metha’s...

The debate over identity rages on in Africa, and also in the African Diaspora and outside of them. The Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors, the Metha, has taken a keen interest in the issue and desires to lay his claim to African Identity. But, can he?

How the African Man Became The METHA. My great grandfather was an ocean fisherman. He trained his sons to become fishermen. One became a freshwater fishing expert.

After examining how Ukraine tells African Leaders (some of them the Metha, no doubt) that it is not interested in Peace with Russia, it has become obvious that the Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors, the Metha, has one more debilitating characteristic. Let’s just say that even as the Metha believes in his own intelligence, he remains unaware that the rest...
It has become even obvious among the Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors (the Metha) in Ghana, that the Ewes, in particular, bear the brunt of their stereotypical diatribes against Traditional African Religions, specifically against Vodun, which stereotypes African peoples around the world have become very familiar with.

You Deserve More. Really? I have often heard and read the Mis-Educated Than His Ancestors (the Metha) brag about what it is they deserve - this here, and that over there! And it seems that what they wish to say is that our country is not enough to grant them...
Women & Romance. Women don't value Romance. Women require more than romance from a man, and perhaps even never. However, men value romance. Some men even over-value it.
