‘Fighting’ ignorance with ignorance does not help resolve the issue. What I mean to say is one cannot claim to confront ignorance by being ignorant themselves. It is really annoying and disappointing when I see people complaining about (for example) racism directed towards them by being racist themselves. I mean if everyone did that how on earth will we reach a reasonable and suitable solution?
Now for the totally unrelated stuff…
…Yesterday I had a discussion about Israel and Palestine in French! It was very difficult. It was easier for me to talk about Chinese democracy in French!
It rained today, the rain reminded me of Nigerian rain. I got soaked walking in the rain even though I had an umbrella. I could not stop smiling and laughing as my shoes, tights and dress got wet.
Hopefully, I start working next month! Till then, I’ll be improving my French.
Just because you have spent years studying a particular field and have become an expert in said field does not mean that The People will listen to what you say.
I went to the African dance class last night…that may be why I am really tired today. I was dressed inappropriately for the dance but thought it was appropriate enough before I got there. I was the only person wearing a skirt. It was not appropriate at all. It was fun dancing to an djembe though. I think I will go there again.
And I’m ending this with a question; when people stare at you, does that mean they are racist? For example if you travel and the locals there stare at you, is this racist behaviour?
