Give th-ankh-s for tha information rasifree, and one important point is that even the Black Untouchables have given themselves a name: Dalit. Even those people don't accept a designation which has been imposed on them anymore, but we have fallen so in love with designations that our former slavemaster has imposed on us that we will go in extremes to defend them.
Why is it so important to Bantu-Kelani, who is otherwise quite reasonable, to defend a designation which was imposed on us with her last breath?
It's gona take bravery to stop (mental) slavery!
