To be precise, do we have philosophers?

(One friend of mine once put it this way: first thing in the morning I yawns; sh*t or urinate; go to work; come back home and drink beer with friends, eat, do gardening sometimes, or help cooking; talk to wife or kids, or visit friends or family members, etc, and sleep again at night!!!)

When does a black person think?

A person who thinks in such a way that his/her thoughts create a new idea, invents a new machinery that alliviates burdens, discoveres, pioneers an ideology that resolves enigmas; comes up with new splutions for human suffering.....and, and, and!!!

The last last known black Southern Africa's phylospher was Morena Mohlomi, King Moshoeshoe's mentor in 1819!!!

One Philosopher told me this while i was still training. " I dont normally think about anything in life coz to every problem there lies solution. I only deal with ultimate realities of the universe which hv been given much thought by my predeccesors, mine is jst 2 read and compare facts and come out with the solutions." So i m trying to make sense of Philosophers being thinkers as u suppose. Remember martin Luther king. Wasnt he black? Arent there ppl following his trend now? We r not that bad my brother jst recall a few things.

Have you ever wondered why black people in Africa are packers, cleaners, assistants, diggers in white controlled bussinesses? while on the other hand whites are managers of such routine, odd jobs?
