I saw an iguana in person once. A lady I worked with brought it in to show us as it was her pet. It felt scaly.

Neutral, because I'm not educated on anything about it and don't want to come off as ignorant and insensitive.

I feel like when it comes to Ireland in the 90s, it has to do with music.

Nowadays, it's Jacksepticeye.

Well, I know for a fact that I have Gaelic ancestors. My family can't seem to agree if we're Irish or Scottish, though. It's always possible we're both, I suppose.

Rhodesia was run by a white minority government. In 1965, that government declared itself independent through a Unilateral Declaration of Independence ('UDI') under Prime Minister Ian Smith. It's basically one of the textbook examples of settler colonialism.

The White community kept itself largely separate from the Black community and The 1903 Immorality Suppression Ordinance made sex between Black men and White women illegal.

Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, has figured highly among white supremacists since. Situated in present-day Zimbabwe, Rhodesia broke from the United Kingdom, its colonial patron, in 1965 after Britain refused to recognize white minority rule. Almost immediately, Rhodesia descended into a war fought between the regime and several black resistance movements which often fought each other. Black political leaders were arrested and jailed en masse. The regime routinely employed torture methods including electric shocks and ďskull bashingĒ to obtain information from real or suspected political activists.

I know. The music they made was cool tho.

I wish that didn't happen, that the white settlers and blacks could live in peace and harmony as a torch bearer of unity and African prosperity, but it was not to be. sad

How did you get into Irish culture, Keiorn? I've thought about that.

Studying colonialism in Africa, ironically.

I have this depressive periodic thing where I go back to studying Africana post-colonial philosophy and end up crying over the colonial violence wrested upon the country by the Spainards, Portuguese, French or English / Anglo-Saxons and end up moving on to another colonized people and end up crying about them (Andeans, Ainu, Aboriginal Australians etc.).

This time, it was the Celts (ancient Celtiberian, Pictish, Gaulish, modern Scottish, Manx, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Irish). I actually was more enamoured with the Welsh and their history of colonialism (i.e. shit like the Welsh Not and the Brad y Llyfrau Gleision). Until I learned about the preoccupation white supremacists had with the Irish.

Then began a journey of understanding the pre-Christian pagan origins of Ireland, The Irish Question, Irish literature, Ogham and Insular Gaelic scripts, the Irish not being considered white for a long time, the Irish Potato Famine, their colonization by the British, Irish indentured servitude, the Irish slaves myth, Irish American racism (ironically) against minorities, Irish Travellers and discrimination against them, their identification with the Black struggle, Saint Patrick's Battalion fighting for the Mexicans in the Mexican-American war after turning on America and their folklore, myths, language and music, that led me to being quite knowledgeable about them despite never setting foot on the island.

Also, it helps that I have a friend (who is Irish and was born and raised there) who lives there and a teacher from there.
