Splash du Jour: Friday

“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.”
-- Kenyan leader Jomo Kenyatta --

Have a great Friday!

The anonymous person who responds "and...?" obviously does not know how indigenous people feel about colonialism.
