Confronting Cognitive Dissonance

by Zvikomborero Kapuya

Cognitive dissonance is a historical amnesia caused by the falsification of history, epistemicides and cultural genocides, manifests in forms of inferiority complex, self-hate, and self-alienation of the black people and the sense of superiority as natural to the white race. It manifests in dichotomy, affects both white race and black people, it can be called coloniality of being. Therefore this situation led to racism, exploitations, political nihilism, exploitation of woman, oppression of the margins therefore the need to confront cognitive dissonance. Confronting is the first step, which explains the realisation of the effects of the subjects and then deconstructs it, hence the need to confront and deconstruct cognitive dissonance. But the journey should not end there, but should create the templates of peaceful post-coloniality.
