Renouncing the rhino

1652964228Much like Fogel, I too used to like the rhino. Now, increasingly, I believe that #whiteness has made them #DangerousForBlacks.

“I used to like Rhinos, I never loved them, but I thought they were pretty cool. I once even saw a couple in the wild with my parents in Kruger National Park. Sadly, like so many other things, rhinos have been ruined for me. I can’t like them anymore. I don’t dislike them personally, but I hate what they have come to represent. Don’t get me wrong — rhinos are blameless in this scenario. Rhinos can’t help that their horns are a valuable commodity with a high demand in parts of Asia and they live near lots of desperate people or that some rich Americans like to travel to the dark continent to kill things.” – Benjamin Fogel inĀ Renouncing the rhino
