The tragedy of the black man

14 September 2016, 11:22 Olaniyi Odina

Members of the black nationhood are very funny people with specialty in compromising everything they touch or learn.

We learnt democracy and created very strong men and excessively weak institutions. We touched Christianity and created pastors that are higher and bigger than Christ and his father who hath in heaven. Even our culture have suffered more cruel fate from our weak minds.

Today's discus is interested in the misappropriation and misapplication of our cultures with critical concern in paternity ( fathernity). Our men have a very funny way of manipulating the decree of our ancestors that a man is the owner of the child.

The reason our ancestors decreed thus is because in the days of ancestors their men do not father children through sexual pleasure, but it was the duty of man to take care of their children, provide all their basic needs from housing, to clothing, to feeding and also leaving inheritance for their sons. They never envisaged a situation where a mans only contribution to development of the child is sexual misadventure.

Our ancestors never contemplated that a masked man can rape a woman and rape her silly, till she gets pregnant and delivers a child without any contribution from a father figure.

The woman suffers the double shame of rape and single motherhood only for the rapist to come back after 30 years that the child is now a full grown man to rehears the dead line that "the child is his flesh and blood".

Such men that believe that a fathering a child ends and starts with sexual terrorism need their heads reexamined, because how can you explain that a woman who cried during sexual rigmarole out of pleasure or pain, who carried the baby in her womb out of pain or pleasure for nine whole months, who gives birth to the baby out great pain and pleasure is less of the child's flesh and blood.
