Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Fantastic Olutoyin Ayinde:a walking library, a credit to the black Race

Is being regarded as "a credit to the Black race" not a backhanded "white supremacist" compliment that upholds and promotes "race" as a ("natural") truth instead of "race" as an invidious and insidious fallacy (and thus a most dangerous phenomenon)?

Race is a fallacy, but ironically, invidiously, and insidiously, racism is an overwhelming reality.

Book publisher  should go after him and other  people  like him to harvest  his knowledge and wealth of experience .interview in the newspaper is good  but its not enough.we need  books to thoroughly thrash the issue  of town planning in lagos and nigeria in particular .book for the family library, academic  library, children's  library school library, public library,administrative  library  etc  can the Librarians and publishers please step forward  to salute olutoyin ayinde an illustrious  son of Africa.
