The Debate, Ongoing

The debate surrounding the issues raised by 'Kony 2012' --the issues raised both intentionally and unintentionally-- continues, and it has evolved into a debate not just about the video/campaign itself, but about activism as a whole, foreign aid, and race. I think, then, that the campaign has been a good thing.

So, I wanted to share two other articles from two opposing African viewpoints, both of which have good things to say: this piece from Nigerian novelist Teju Cole, and this one from former Ugandan presidential candidate Norbert Mao.

Things to think about, whichever side of whichever part of the debate you find yourself on.
