Dr. Marimba Ani (born Dona Richards) is an anthropologist and African Studies scholar best known for her work Yurugu, a comprehensive critique of European thought and culture, and her coining of the term Maafa for the African holocaust.
According to Dr. Ani, “One of the deepest beliefs of the Europeans is in the related notions of “civilization,” “progress,” and the “evolutionary” superiority of their culture. The concept of “codified law” is a definitive ingredient of that of civilization; for with civilization, according to European ideology, comes order and legality assures “lasting order” – not moral conduct but consistent and predicable conduct. So that the “civilized” way – the European way – is to bring laws, however forcibly, and the structures of European culture (“civilization”) to those whom one treats immorally and for whom one has no respect. Along with “development,” this justifies expansionism – for after all, Europeans bring “law and order” to people who must have previously lived quite “disorderly” lives (or so they believe).”
