Let’s stand up against injustice—Ama K Abebrese urges Africans
Actress, Ama Konadu Abebrese has disagreed with the multi-award winning singer, Becca for the false comparison she made between tribalism and racism.
According to her, she understands Becca’s grievances and where she was coming from but disagree with her.
“This is a discourse and I get where sis is coming from and it is valid; though I may not agree with the comparison,” she added.
Responding to Becca’s post, the renowned actress who is also a presenter said that it was time for the blacks to stay united and condemn injustice whenever they see one.
She stated that love is what the blacks need to join forces together and fight against racism and injustice.
Although Ama K Abebrese indicated that Becca’s point was valid but people should frown on injustice and respond accordingly when the act is initiated against anyone, irrespective of the land the act is initiated.
“Let us be united in love and stand up to injustice wherever we see it, home and abroad,” she said.
She urged people not to see her response as a beef but as an opinion, saying, “if anyone thinks this is a beef with Becca, they are sadly wrong.”
However, Becca explained that her comment about the fight against the racism was not to dissuade people to condone injustice.
She observed that racism affects everyone irrespective of the skin colour, stressing that the biggest history in Africa was “racism,” thus all Africans had to fight to put an end to it.
“However, as Africans back home, what are we doing to combat xenophobia, tribalism, nepotism and common difference? So my earlier tweet should not be taken out of context,” Becca added.
The “Yes I do” hitmaker bemoaned that racial killings, police brutality, rape, bullying and all forms of violence still going on around the world was very disgraceful.
“We all as humans being not just as black and white must empathize because it concerns us all,” she said.
