No, Ghana first

Kennedy's call to Americans to be patriotic was not a call to bigotry, hatred and political shenanigans but to individual sacrifice for country. You, K. Badu, would not know a darn thing about that kind of self sacrifice Kennedy spoke of because you preach and sow tribal and political party animus borne out of your assembled hypocritical and biased analysis and derived conclusions. JFK became president running on a documented trail of achievements including service in the US military and nowhere was the Kennedy family known to have supported anyone who advocated or pleaded with the British to stay on rather than let America's founding fathers use property owning as basis for voting rights. Yes the British lost America in battles and so did the British loose in Ghana once Ghana became ungovernable.
Why not take on a task to write about the imagined and presumed differences between Nana Akufo-Addo's one district one factory government funded white elephant and Nkrumah era government owned factories and institutions that were intentionally left to fail to prove a point by your preferred political party machine and others without foresight. Better yet why not write a piece or two on why Ghana would have been better off if only the educated and property owners had been allowed/granted rights by the British to vote as suggested by your demigod J. B. Danquah as opposed to the one man one vote advocated by Nkrumah and let us see which of the two ideological slants jive with Kennedy's clarion call.
