What are they exracting oil from?


In the village where Komona and Magician briefly live with Butcher, what are they extracting the oil from in the big presses? It seems to be the fruit/nut of some sort of palm tree. (I am probably showing my profound ignorance of African horticulture here).

But-but-but I thought that the white man was the only one who was allowed to wage war for oil. At least that's what the Huffington Post and Matt Damon tell me.

No, you misunderstood. the duality is such:

White man is allowed to wage war for black oil.

Black man is allowed to wage war for white oil.
