PRETORIA, U.K. – (May 22, 2012) –Author MATLOU’S calling is made clear in his new book To Kill an African: it is easiest to kill an African or what is generally called the black man through the smallest joke that immediately demeans and classifies him or her to an order below Homo Sapiens. MATLOU intends to spark an intellectual undercurrent to blast that tower of degradation into the junkheap of false and useless philosophies. This book best serves that purpose.
The passionate treatise was written as a powerful instrument to start debates, put up organisations, foster an enlightened thought process, start informed psychological rebellions, engender a gnawing desire for empowerment and self reliance. In other words, as any civilised person refuses to be caged or compartmentalised and dissected, his or her privacy stolen by the rapaciousness of wrong-minded media outfits and fed to the hungry jaws of world opinion, the African is declaring himself or herself capable of standing equal in any standard of human value or virtue amongst the world’s peoples.
The grassroots has been burning for more than a decade with African artistry, MATLOU has come to serve notice to all and sundry that change in the highest intellectual circles has come, that the African is rousing from his deep sleep and is ready to take charge of his destiny, to influence the world, be his own person and shape world events on his own terms.
To Kill an African is a passionate treatise on the pain and frustrations of being African, a race rarely receiving immediate acceptance as civilised, thinking, creative, and able human beings. The things that Africans go through in the world – the jests, the prejudice, lie mainly on that final bastion of colonialism, namely the African mind, which still stands surreptitiously as a standard by which humans are judged beautiful and clean.
This book is a genuine must read for all people of African descent the world over.
This book will be featured at the 2012 Michigan Reading Association Book Exhibit in Grand Rapids, Mich. on March 9-11, 2012.
