"… My point is that the only authentic identity for the African is the tribe. I am Nigerian because a white man created Nigeria and gave me that identity. I am black because the white man constructed black to be as different as possible from his white. But I was Igbo before the white man came."
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Half of a Yellow Sun (via tooroughfingersoftheworld)
One of my all-time favourite quotes from one of my all-time favourite books from one of my all-time favourite authors.
