An interesting discourse is going on among Africans and Africa-descent persons. They are asking the very pertinent question of who they are. Friends, this can only be called great. I'm loving it.

"This piece is an attempt to refocus an exciting conversation going around the blogosphere which could benefit from an open-minded discourse on the term “Afropolitan.” I believe this is a conversation we must have as Africans.  How we shape this dialogue will influence the perception of a huge generation existing now, but going forward, will also help shape a variety of identities around the world. While we are all unique, and are free to express ourselves however we feel, I disagree with Marta Tveit’s assertion that “The Afropolitan Must Go,” I believe “Afropolitans can come or go.”
