Someone starts a fire and it up to us to put it out...else it will continue to burn and no one will be saved.This kind of trouble started way back during the conquest and colonization of Africa. Settler’s colonialism is the root of many problem Africa face IMO. Algeria, and Tunisia are good examples of how Europeans formed a colony, and shipped it’s surplus population their due to the social problems Europe was facing.
It is easier to say that than for black folks to begin doing something for themselves.the white man is the problem, the black man is the solution........
You are correct sista, but what we are seeing is how that practice has morphed, and manifested into what we are seeing today. When these false borders were carved out, they over wrote natural boarders that these tribes had established ages ago. Then you have the imperatives of capitalist industrialization which was, and is the primary motivation for European intrusion into Africa. It's all a matter of economics. And lets not forget the asserted effort of the Europeans, along with the help of some blacks to keep Africa in a dependent state.Someone starts a fire and it up to us to put it out...else it will continue to burn and no one will be saved.
Enki I understand what you are saying. But should it continue. Africans are not robots. This is time to move on...blaming someone consistently for our problems cannot continue. Africans emigrate to the US and do something positive with their lives. This slaughtering and destruction MUST STOP.
On another note, who supplies the African groups with their military hardware, guns, etc. the white folks...money is made from the destruction of black folks. Blacks must come to grips with reality. What legacy is being left for our children and grandchildren. This to me seems like a cop out. It is like saying that ALL the problems of African American can be blamed on white supremacy.
so it is your belief that ONLY immigrants excel? really?It is easier to say that than for black folks to begin doing something for themselves.
Why is it that Immigrants to the USA can achieve. I would think that they would face more racism. Something just aint clicking.
Nigerian Prof. makes history in US, heads Ivy League school
Eric Holder the Attorney General of the USA..his parents were born here in Barbados and emigrated to the USA. He grasped a golden opportunity for a good education.
One of our natives from here is a Professor at MIT.
James it is time to do and not just talk.
I never said they all excelled. My point is to show that if immigrants can achieve so can born and bred African Americans. It is time to quit blaming and start doing. I realise that AA have it real hard. Here in Barbados the population of blacks is the highest ethnic group whilst in America whites outnumber blacks. That is a real obstacle.Also, when they come over here they quickly assimilate the white culture. And for what? They Don't all excel, just as brutha James is alluding to.
