I have been called a racist and a bigot. By a person or people who hide behind anonymity. So I call them cowards.
I may be racist, a reverse racist, inasmuch as I prefer the company of most Kenyans to the company of most Brits, despite being British myself.
As to being a bigot, a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own, I plead "Not Guilty".
I have my own opinions - I wouldn't write a blog if I didn't - but I respect the right of people to have differing opinions. I respect the right of other people to disagree with me, just as I may disagree with them.
When I am threatened with the blog equivalent of "We know where you live!", things are going too far.
For the love of all that is decent, this is a blog! My thoughts, my feelings, nothing subversive. I am not out to change the world with a blog.
Having said that, I am out to change the world for a few people, a mere drop in the ocean of humanity. But I work hard to improve the lives of a few people.
I don't do it for thanks or praise. I'm not that good. But I do not expect to be despised by those I cannot help because I am a mzungu.
Maybe others will see what my friends and I are doing and emulate us. We shall see when our projects are fully operational.
Maybe then, the anonymous people who insult me and my kind will see that we are not all bad, even if our ancestors may have been.
