Maybe I’m African more than Arab, Maybe my color/ Nubian root encourages me to focus on African studies, Maybe it was a pragmatic decision to find an advantage in the Egyptian political science school.
Maybe Africa is united, Maybe Africans keep their lifestyle, Maybe Africans seek consumption and capitalism to be developed, Maybe Egyptians consider themselves Africans, Maybe we respect our diversity.
