Ghanaian-woman

This beautiful and powerful woman Theodosia Salome Okoh, has passed away today. She is the designer of Ghana’s current national flag. Because of her, we have symbol of national freedom and justice. A flag that truly represents all Ghanaians, and a symbol of hope to Africans in the diaspora. This is a sad day, one of Ghana’s national stateswoman and heroines has left us with an amazing gift, that we must treasure, unify, love, and respect for generations to come. #Ghanaian #African #woman #natioanlMourn 🙏🏾😔

anonymous asked:

Do you ever think some African moms are real mean sometimes I mean we love them, but sometimes it's just to much. What do you think?

Hell yeah they are too mean. Like African Parents all need a African Parents Anonymous where they all learn how to communicate better and not beat their kids

I have an Ghanaian auntie and this woman is so freaking abusive to her children. She pushed her 5-6 year old son into the wall and he got a big Ole bump in his head. Kid was bawling and everything. Her husband thought it was wrong but he didn’t do nothing about it. Her oldest daughter is practically the mother to all the kids and she treats this poor girl terribly and there’s nothing she can do but obey her mother and count the days she goes off to college.

Too many African shrug shit like this off as discipline but your messing up your children and blaming tv or the out side world. You know something is wrong with your daughter. Something that’s causing her terrible anxiety but you just tell her that her doctor is wrong and she doesn’t need therapy. You tell you kids that they can talk to your about anything but the second they open their mouth to speak, you yell at them, compare them to fake cousins and make them feel absolutely worthless.

In african culture, the adult is always right even when they are completely utterly wrong. An adult will never admit fault and that is stupid as hell. Parents will discipline their kids with pepper and wonder why they have eye problems later on. African mom’s need to stop being so mean and african dad’s need to have a God dang conversation with their kids especially of they live under the same freaking roof as this. There is a fine line between discipline and abuse. And African parents need to find that line and be aware of that line. Make that line your best friend future African parents

Disclaimer: Yes I know not all African parents are like this. Please don’t try to play the Devil’s Advocate. We already have one Devil and he was banished a long time ago for a reason and he doesn’t need nor want your help.
