The Danger Of The Single Story

This is a long video but worth every minute, click on the purple button below.

Never judge someone because of their race or where they come from. Don’t narrow them down to suit your narrow perception, and don’t narrow yourself down because you have been influenced by others.

Our lives, our cultures, our likes and dislikes are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice — and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.

Now, more than ever in our country, black and white, Indian and colored people need to stand together – to rise up with one voice and with one motive only TO SEE OUR COUNTRY FLOURISH, TO CREATE JOBS, TO STOP POVERTY BY STOPPING CORRUPTION, TO STOP THE CULTURE OF SHAME, TO BECOME WHAT WE KNOW WE CAN AND SHOULD BECOME AND TO LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER – UNITED AS A NATION.

Faithfully your friend,

Thandi
