After winning a free trip to France, Senegalese consultant Bousso Drame is saying "No, thank you." Drame recently penned an open letter to the French consulate in Senegal claiming she was subjected to humiliating remarks and treated with suspicion when she applied for a visa.

 

Her trip was sponsored by the French Institute of Senegal, a government-operated cultural center, as the top prize for a French language competition. In her letter, Drame claims that her experience at the consulate is representative of the treatment received by many Senegalese people when dealing with French authorities.

 

Here are some excerpts from the letter:

It is high time for Africans to respect themselves and to demand they be respected by others.

An all-expenses-paid trip, even the world’s most beautiful and enchanting one, is not worth the suffering that my fellow citizens and myself endure from the French Consulate.
As a matter of coherence with my own value system, I have, therefore, decided to renounce that offer, despite being granted a visa.
Renounce symbolically. Renounce in the name of those thousands of Senegalese who deserve respect, a respect they are being denied within the walls of these French representations, and on Senegalese soil moreover.

That is what I am talking about. I call on all Nigerians to also boycott the UK Embassy in Nigeria. If what I am hearing is true, Nigerians may start depositing bonds as a mark they will leave the UK after visa expires. It is an insult to us as a people. To demand we keep our money in an interest yielding bond with the UK for purpose of visa calls to question what their Embassy are doing to ensure only credible people get visas. If you cant take it on your VOs then certainly not on us. Africa now is the time to boycott foreign Visa's to this Antholes called civilization. What do they really take us for? Nonsense.

...NONSENSE!..... We Africans should not be expecting such a RESPECT which we did not give to ourselves ''first'' before non Africans to follow!. As our leaders left US Africans in such a SHAMEFUL image that refers US as HUNGRY, DISEASEFUL, TREACHEROUS, NONENTITY, DIRTY, UNCIVILIZED, etc kind of human beings, from which IMAGE  comes Your RESPECT O' Africans........Huh?Huh??. You are complaining on what you saw in (the western world) French embassy, then what can you say now that Africans are being subdued into a 2'nd recolonization by the ''selfish Chinees'' people ...Huh?.  Hence WE left ourselves to be USED then WHY do WE have to complain.....Huh?. We Africans are now being USED by Dirty Indians, Chinees people, Paquistanias, Siri Lankans, Afghanistans Lebanees people, Malaysians, the Philipinoes etc just bcos we made ourselves INFERIOR among them!. Stop complaining my fellow Africans, Revolution against our Unpatroitic and Uncivilized leaders, that is the ONLY answer!.
