BBC News – John Abraham Godson is Poland’s first black MP

Congratulations to MP John Abraham Godson, the first black MP of Poland!

And no, I don’t care that he’s married to a Polish woman. He’s living in Poland. Stands to reason there are more Polish women to choose from.

I find the example he sets empowering.  Warsaw is a looong way from Lagos.  Yet, he has managed to thrive.

It can be done. African Americans might want to look at some of the other Nigerians putting it down around the world. It’s not just telephone scams. They are buying Gatwick airport, leading in technology and fashion design, etc. Athletes and entertainers are not the only role models unless you want them to be.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
