the uncritical acceptance of English

“The ‘uncritical acceptance’ of English or French as the medium of educated African writing is ‘misdirected’, says [Obiajunwa] Wali, and ‘has no chance of advancing African literature and culture’.”

from Stylistic Criticism and the African Novel by Emmanuel Ngara (1982). Quoting Wali, ‘The Dead End of Afican Literature?’, Transition, Vol. 3, No. 10.
