Why Gandhi Must Fall Powerpoint

$15.00

Many people have seen the movie and perhaps read the autobiography (Briley, 1982; Mohandas K Gandhi, 1927). So, why have Afrikan=Black people in Ghana called for the statue of Gandhi at the University of Ghana to fall? In this paper, we hope to present the other side of Gandhi beyond the myth and propaganda (which we call impropagandhi) – the staunch pro-Indo-Aryan anti-Afrikan/anti-Black side of a man fighting for his caste and for casteism. To do so, we hope to shed light on his remarkably consistent anti-Afrikan/anti-Black words and deeds throughout his lifetime – in Umzantsi and India – to make the first part of the rationale for #GandhiMustFall clear. To show Gandhi in relation to Afrikan=Black people, we will provide a thorough examination of Gandhi’s own writings from the CWMG and the writings of some of his contemporaries such as Dr. B.R. Amdedkar’s What Gandhi and Congress have done to the Untouchables (Ambedkar, 1945; Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, 1999). Further, we will look at the research of other scholars, primarily those of Indian descent, who have uncovered mounds of information on the problematic way Gandhi related to Black people throughout his lifetime (Desai & Vahed, 2015; Roy, 2014; Singh & Watson, 2008). In our examination of these and other works, we find that Gandhi’s pro-Indo-Aryan, anti-Afrikan/anti-Black agenda was displayed throughout his lifetime – first against the indigenous Afrikan=Black people of Umzantsi (South Afrika) and second against the Dalits: The Black Untouchables of India. Secondly, there is still the need to remove the statue so that, hopefully, it can be replaced with one of our Afrikan/Black heroes/sheroes (none of whose statues can currently be found on campus at UG) in the ancient and rich tradition of memorial statues invented by Afrikan=Black people over 5,000 years ago, in the Nile Valley. In conclusion, #GandhiMustFall is necessary so that future generations can be inspired by someone in their own image to be emulated and so that the collective psyche of conscious Afrikan=Black people is not assaulted daily by the insult of seeing this implacable foe of Afrikan=Black people throughout his Indo-Aryan lifetime.
