On the emotional level I agree with you that we must be allowed to live in intigrity, but the reality is is that the white man feels very insecure with his history side by side our (true) African history. He has created that Tarzan-image of Africa and Africans to justify slavery and colonialism, and I don't know if he will be willing to replace that picture.
The white man won't say th-ankh you to us for everything we have given to him (mathematics, chemistry, astronomy, law, navigation, botany, physics, medicine, architecture, and the list goes on!), and the white man still doesn't apologize for all crimes he has committed against the African.
So what do you aspect from a man who is refusing to thank you for what you have given to him and is refusing to say sorry for what he has done to you?
The only thing we can do is making African people psychologically more resistant, because I'm afraid the white man will prefer to live in his lie (that he created advanced civilization and saved us from the jungle) for a very long time to come.
It's gona take bravery to stop (mental) slavery!
