It is no secret that in Kenya and elsewhere in the world, classism remains a distinct aspect of life. In Kenya this has been defined by guys of town vs rural folks.
Go to anywhere USA where a good number of Kenyans have settled. You will be surprised to find that these cliques of rural folks vs nai people continue hanging out separately. My question is what is it with classism and why is there a need to define ourselves via socially divisive labels?
Is there any time that we will be individuals and look at each other as such not as which group we fit in?
My naive assumption was that in the US because most people live in urban areas and very few if any of the Kenyans are in the elite of US society, Kenyans would relate to each other on the same level.
But oh no, the issue of classism continues…will there ever be an end to this?
