This is part of the colonial mentality we have, the mindset that we need to change. We think of crops like fonio or sorghum or millet as substandard crops or country people crops because we think we want to consume those things that the French are consuming. So, we spend so much money bringing wheat flour into the country to bake bread and baguettes because people in Dakar need to have a fresh baguette every day.
