African Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka Tore Green Card When Trump Emerged President, Now He Needs To Visit – See Reason

Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka is flying out back to America a year after he tore his Green Card, following the triumph of Donald Trump at the Presidential race.

“I‘ll go in as an outsider, an outsider from space. I cherish that assignment,” Soyinka said in a meeting

“My life has been included with the diaspora on an extremely individual and instinctive level,” he said of his communication with conspicuous African-Americans.

Soyinka had promised to tear his Green Card and leave America if Donald Trump emerges as President. Now he needs to deliver a lecture in the United States. The lectures will be in three parts, under the theme: BEYOND AESTHETICS: Use, Abuse and Dissonance in African Art Traditions.

He said in 2016, ”I was in New York during the run-up to elections. I watched this face, its body language, listened to his uncouth, racist language, his imbecilic harangues, the insults to other peoples, other races, especially the Hispanics, Africans and Afro-Americans, even citing once – I was told.

Nigeria as an instance of the burdensome occupation of global space. I watched and listened, disbelievingly, since this was America, supposedly now freed to a large extent – as we like to believe and have a right to expect – from its lamentable history of racism.”
