The first parrot to sing in English.
The first monkey to learn the alphabet
The first cat to dance flamenco
The first black to behave like a white award.
I’m always sad when I see posts like ‘first black to…’ behave or did something white had been doing, but never heard about ‘the first white’ to eat Jollof, to write in Yoruba awards, etc.
Most Africans are awarded prizes for acting like whites, and they are happy.
The French went further to have award for ‘monkeys writing in French language’ and next to it an award for ‘black people writing in French’.
I heard the British had monkeys literature prizes for Africans writing well in English.
