However Ugh, why are Africans and African diaspora not doing much business together... According to many stats out there, there is barely any trade among Africans themselves. Why couldn't the already start the process years ago?
curious :-0
The whole infrastructure of Africa was set up to bring slaves out and similar during the colonial era. That is over simplified. But as long as we depend on whites to solve our problems, they will always propose a solution that benefits whites and not Africans. They actively work to prevent Pan-African trade and intercourse. So we have to actively work to make Pan-African trade and intercourse work. Some times we do not grasp just how racist racism is.

Oh! I forgot to mention Congo. Congo also fought against the slave trade. And Cong has more natural riches than even Nigeria. Why not think about Congo?( http://www.friendsofthecongo.org/ ) Because the white man did not tell you to think about Congo? I wonder why.
The Congo and it's resources has been discussed here plenty of times.

I think I understand your point that Africa which is a continent as correctly mentioned below :-), would need to do business with a specific country... which would be a country established by African Americans (assuming from your argument). However, it's still not clear to me, why they can's initiate these trade links now. I also find it puzzling that an African would set up his business and hire an African American to manage it. I don't see any justification or motive for doing so.
:-)
WE do not control our own finances in the Diaspora. For example, I send money to Africa whenever possible. But the government has changed the banking laws in such a manner as to make that nearly impossible. You cannot imagine how difficult it is to send $25/month to Africa. You have to go to Western Union or some similar place. Then you have to pay as much as 15% or 20% of a money order to send money. That is the kind of strangle hold they have on us. But we must fight it. One solution might be to have the African consulate offices collect money headed towards Africa. If they can set up barriers, we can set up ways around the barriers if we try.

Nigeria will become a superpower in Africa just like California is a super power in the USA. But it will not just be Nigeria. It will be Egypt just like New York is a super power in the USA. And there is South Africa h=just like Pennsylvania is a super power in the USA. And there is Angola which is already the fastest growing economy in Africa.
For one thing Nigeria has been too stupid to use its oil money to develop the country. This is not the case in Angola. Angola fought a war against the slave trade. Nigeria was always too happy to sell slaves. I mean, Nigeria has always been very, very stupid. But they may come to their senses in the future. Let's hope so.
I just wonder why don't rich Africans ever try too build up all their people? But Nigerians do seem to be the smartest of all Africans.

No. The whole point is not to rely on leadership. We must have a mass political movement based on ordinary every day people. This is Nkrumahism. It was first proposed at the 5th Pan-African Congress by George Padmore and Kwame Nkruamh. This is the theory that led to Ghana's independence. Prior to that we had Dubois' "Talented tenth" That was insanity because Marcus Garvey and Booker T. Washington had both been concerned with the massses, not the elites.

It works like this. On Sunday mornings time permitting, I go to African churches although I am a Muslim. I try to persuade the church groups to work together to bring poor church members into solving our own problems by working with Muslims. These are the masses. And this means being against "gay rights" and all that insanity because the churches will never accept that. I do not speak against "gay rights" to be mean. I do it because I have no other choice if I am going to help mobilize the masses and not talk down to the people the way Obama does. Jesse Jackson said it right when he said that he wanted to cut Obama's balls off for talking down to poor people. I agree. And that is why Obama is so dangerous to our community. He is an elitist who talks down to us.

Someone here on Topix once mentioned that the progress of Africa will be the progress of Africans World-wide. In other words, Africa's rise is the equivalent of Africans and people of African descent's rise World-wide. The rise of Africa will make Africans very powerful in the same way that China is becoming a superpower.
Do you agree?
No, I do not agree because what you said is total bullsh*t. Africa will never rise because the dictators, politicians, tribal chiefs, warlords, etc. have always been too stupid and too corrupt to protect Africa's resources. They have always been for sale to to highest bidder. In addition to that, AIDS and malaria epidemics, widespread famine, and severe shortages of clean drinking water does not represent a continent on the rise.

Nobody tosses me crumbs because I work for what I get. And WM couldn't loot Africa without the help of African BM. Maybe if African men would take pride in themselves and protected their land from predators then more people would respect them.

All blacks live on crumbs and your livelihood is totally dependent on whitey doing a good hunt around the world(africa) to bring home the kill. You blacks get the part whitey does not like on the kill. Any blacks do any hunting... even with in your boarders.^_^ you are still part of the problem.

Until all Negroes in the world educational level is raised, I'm afraid that things will remain the same, save for a very few Negroes, whose education is already level with the rest of the races.

A truthful problem that you have to deal with.

Our problem is not a lack of education. Our problem is mis-education. We have far too many fools running who have been brainwashed against Africa. And because they have "degrees" they want to ignore our own great African intellectuals and scholars and think they are the equals of Nkrumah, Dubois, Sekou Toure, Georg Padmore, Mugabe, Qaddafi and Abd al-Nassir. They are not. Those founding fathers and leaders of the African Revolution had to build from scratch. And they were opposed every step of the way by the same forces who are mis-educating us now.

For example, how can we study the modern history of Africa without mentioning Kwame Nkrumah who led the Independence Movement? Mugabe also led it. But both Mugabe and Nkrumah are ignored by intelligentsia because the enemy don not like them. The enemy is suppose top not like them. That is why they are the enemy. So do not come to me with a PHD without having read most of what Nkrumah wrote. I will never but that non-sense. No intelligent African will fall for it. But if you do not read it, you are sure to earn all kinds of degrees...like Obama and Condi Rice and Suzie Rice, etc.

Well it is certainly true that the imperialistic plunder of Africa, beginning at least with slavery and the Atlantic trade, created much of the wealth upon which the economic advancement of the West was founded.
Frantz Fanon correctly notes that "Europe is the creation of the Third World." He might have added America as also having be enriched and crated largely by imperialist plunder.

If not for African ingenuity and the Blessings of GOD, we would not have the concept of zero upon which computer technology rests.

Actually, I credit GOD Almighty with that. GOD taught the African Arabs the use of zero. You will also find it all over Africa in various African languages. You will not find is in European Languages. Indians also claim it.
