Why Do You White Men Have So Much Cargo?
By: Prince Sefa-Boakye, Founder of What Are Black People Like.
“Why you White Men have so much cargo, and we New Guineans have so little?”
–Jared Diamond, quoting a New Guinean named Yali,
Sociologist and Author of Guns, Germs, and Steel
This question explains everything. It explains why I created this start-up company; why it is the premise to “What are Black People Like,” and why Race does matter. At first, I didn’t believe Race did Matter. But when I traveled and finally opened my eyes to the realities of this world, I changed my thought process.
