I came across this and thought I'd share - "I still feel unable to call myself African without feeling like a thief, stealing the term from those with more legitimate claim to it". It reminds me of conversations I've heard, people identifying as black but being accused of not being 'really black', 'black enough', etc. Or terms such as 'coconut' being thrown by both 'Asian brethren' and Caucasians as an insult and a compliment. Kind of brings light to the construction of identities again, is someone's identity a mix of choice and nature, up to the person? Or does it have to be legitimised, by nature and society for it to hold? Can an Indian from Kenya identify as being African, or does s/he not have a 'right' to that identity? Anyway was just thinking out loud and decided to post.
