Throwback to Things Fall Apart
Last weekend I went to a Model UN conference, where I represented Nigera in the African Union. We were discussing possible Solutions to the Islamic terrorism problem in Africa. One proposed solution was a program to fight terrorism funded by a new farming regime. The delegate from Tanzania suggested growing sweet potatoes because they are a native crop to Africa. In the next caucus the delegate from Rwanda stood up and corrected the previous delegate as there are multiple species of sweet potatoes and that the YAM is species indigenous to Africa. I immediately sent him a note asking if he read things fall apart at which he replied "OKONKWO's RAGE CANNOT BE CONTAINED!" We then had a nice conversation during the next unmod.
