Julle ma’s se poese. Rich of you to attack the (possible) affluence of someone’s parents in the same breath as mocking the poverty of their currency. Calling a generation who democratically voted Apartheid out of power Weimar-Republicans is ludicrous, as is the assumption a “shitty country” (thank you for that gem, Bayley Tippins) cannot produce anything whatsoever. It’s not even remotely the norm for successful North American acts to write, create or even inform their work, yet someone goes the whole hog in Africa: it must be fake if their white/not destitute/have had other jobs/come from a non-shitty country. If you cannot accept African products unless it conforms to your idea of Africa-as-shit, you are keeping Africa shit.
This kind of discussion board will be in a museum one day reminding the world why everyone was only too happy to embrace China as the sole superpower.
