Moreover, in traditional Afrikan thought, suicide is frowned upon. It denies a person fulfillment of his or her destiny. Yorùbá Chief Priest of Osogbo, Araba Ifayemi Osundagbonu Elebuibon, confirmed this when he told the National Mirror earlier this year that the religion "[does] not support suicide. Their belief is that if somebody commits suicide, they will be punished in the hereafter." The article subtly indicts the "religion."
The article mentions that Young was experiencing depression. And usually, that means that he was taking some sort of medication. But the article failed to mention or focused on what drugs his doctor(s) prescribed to him for his depression. Was he on Abilify, Celexa, Cybalta, Effexor, Elavil, Lexapro, Prozac or any host of others prescription medications, all of which are known to cause suicidal thoughts (and actions. Don Cornelius was on such medication when he committed suicide). Why wasn't his use of these drugs, which are known to cause people to commit suicide, the focus of the article and not his faith? White Supremacy's anti-Afrikanism raises it ugly head once again!!!
