Colourism – The Brown Paper Bag Blows about in Accra

This week, we will explore something of the concept of the brown paper bag in Accra. I do not have to explain the brown paper bag test, do I? It is quite a dangerous topic, but that is why I am so excited about exploring it with you.

    No one should be discriminated against based on some colour test. Please go with what is in the coconut upstairs. We have a serious lack of skills already, not to talk of other self-inflicted problems.
