iamthenublack: Aminchi of Uncultured Persons
I am Aminchi but my online avatar is the Uncultured One. I see you. (corny Avatar reference). I am a teacher (Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus), wannabe blogger, wannabe entrepreneur, just a general wannabe who is trying everything in his power to attain the American dream. I am a hybrid, a Nigerian-American who at times is caught between two diametrically opposed cultures. My heart though is in Africa and I started Uncultured Persons to radiate that love for the fatherland.
fav song lyric
What you know about hard,
Can’t be the weak link in the squad
gotta look way deep in your heart
anything in the way gotta go straight through , take charge
Can’t hide from your flaws when you ride for the cause or a nigga will pull your card
Dead Prez, Walk Like a Warrior
who and what inspires you?
I am inspired by a wide range of things, from the market women in Nigeria who despite circumstances are making it happen, to those passionate about their art, their music or their desires. I am drawn to people who have been brave enough to make their situations better than it previously was.
who are your icons, past and present?
I am not really into the “icon” tag. I admire so many people who despite their faults and humanity have risen to make a change in/inspire others lives. Some famous, many will never be known.
the nublack philosophy/mantra according to Aminchi:
If everybody loves and praises what you are doing, you have compromised yourself. Lead a life that will honor God and the gifts He has given you.
–Musa Asake (my pa)
