EDITOR'S PICK:Blaming white for the horrors black invents
NAIROBI, 2 FEB 2003 (DAILY NATION)--Though I condemn the historic white atrocities against black, I cannot condone any black injustice against white. I am more keenly aware that whites still enjoy grotesque privileges – some even crass racists – in our country.

Yet I know that whiteness has nothing to do with it. For I know very many white individuals as committed as I am to the fight.
My task, then, is only to fight the injustice, the historical conditions that cause it and the individuals who perpetrate or apologise for both. My education teaches me that evil and virtue are not black-and-white.
