We Don’t Care About Trump Calling Africa A Shithole Country – Chimamanda Adichie

Nigerian novelist, writer of short stories, and nonfiction, Chimamanda Adichie, has finally addressed a comment made by US President Donald Trump describing Africa as a shithole country.

Addressing the shithole comment in an interview moderated by Maryline Baumard at the Opéra Bastille, Chimamanda Adichie said, “There are things that are said by people and we do not care! Because we know that it comes from a sidereal vacuum.”

“Yes I am Nigerian, yes I am a woman, I am a feminist, yes I am black. But why do we stick a label of identity to those who are not white? I recognize myself as a person. I want to be what I am!”, the novelist added.
