look mr toilet tissue, what fool would exspect a man in political office to help him become financially and economically independent? you are another sub-human afraid you are going to loose the tons of money that blk people blindly provide for you by buying up your inferior services and products.
go to hell. our tidy milk is drying up and you will have to find another host to bleed.
That is the whole purpose of politics: protect our business and economics interests. Socialism takes that to its logical conclusion. That is why Cuba has the best medical system in the entire world, far surpassing anything Obamacare might ever do. The Cuban government cares about the health of the people. So, they set up the world's best healthcare.

In China, we have seen the fatsest growing economy in the entire history of the world these past 20 or 30 years because the Cinese government cares about the economic conditons of the Chinese people. Japan also has had similar success. The same is true of Korea and now Vietnam and just about every country in Asia. And now we have idiots like you complaining because Asians have more businesses than we do.

They interviewed a Korean mercant in LA and asked him how they became so sucessful while Africans were not making any progress at all. He told them honestly that the Korean government helps Korean businesspeople. But when we ask our politicians to pay attention to our economic conditions we get a nitwit like you coming here making stupid excuses for them.

Like 1 Korean American, you are doing black people like what he does to Asian people, a disservice. The Asian-American community has had a far more positive impact on this country than the African-American, no matter how small. Are most black people online trolls?

Me either. The whole idea of touching something that anothjer man touches in that manner is repulsive to me. Touching another man's wife seems homosexual and it is homosexual because when you make love to a woman, you also make love to whomever she has made love to. If she is not "gay", then you are gay if you touch her.

Race and economics?
Who gives a shyt?
Buy, sell or STFU. The money is green and that's all that matters. If you are so concerned about race then send me a check and again STFU. The fact of the matter is that it's RARE for black people in America to appreciate the concept of long term investing. Here you come talking about what we need and what we don't have, but when I suggest WHY we don't have it, you come babbling some crap about all the black people who DO invest, and own businesses. Then you ramble on about your superiority and that you're part of some great organization that provides the economic growth for the black community. You sound more to me like some defensive ghetto buster on food stamps. Knowledgeable people don't ramble on like that. They care more about the facts and the ideas. They understand the importance of the bottom line. You don't seem to get it.
look at this retarded person, LOL!! go back to the original post of mine that you responded too because you are now on some mess that don't even make sense. if you think you know that as a whole, blk americans do not long term invest, why aren't your azz out in the community teaching and encouraging blk americans to do so?

i wasn't even talking about investing; i was talking about economics, employment, business ownership that our own dollars circulating in our community would create and somehow your supposed to be blk azz has a problem with this!?

shut up fool.

Economics IS about investing!!
Employment is about investing too. What the hell do you think a pension is?
Business ownership is not possible without some INVESTING.

I have no problem talking about anything, but if you are going to look at business, economics, and employment, then you BETTER start with who is going to invest in what. You BETTER start thinking about the returns as well. That should make perfect sense to anyone. How come it makes you angry? You sound as stupid as hell wishing for something in one hand, but shytting in the other. Then you think you can come here and talk about money in the community.

Because we live in a global economy. If we isolate ourselves the white man will take advantage and we will have no other outlet for our goods and services. Look at Zimbabwe. Our problem is Zimbabwe is we tried to sell everything to Europe. When the white man got mad, he cut us off from his markets. And blacks ended up suffering. And when all was said and done, I proposed doing business with China. Obama gave Zimbabwe less than one hundred million dollars, with strings attached. China gave over $1 billion, no strings attached. A couple weeks, China invested another $10 billion in Zimbabwe. That is over 100 times what the USA offered. Plus, we are receiving help from Indonesia, Malaysia and other Asian countries. India is particular is very close to my political party, the Convention People's Party.( http://conventionpeoplesparty.org/ ) These are ties that go all the way back to slavery times.

But the principle of Africans pooling our resources for collective efforts in economicsis what Pan-Africanism is all about. I am not opposed to that aspect. At the same time, I recognize that we must do business in Asia if we want progress in Africa. For example, over 90% of the African economy is agriculture (not counting mining and oil, etc.) Who eats the most food in the world? Asians do. That means that in order to develop our agricultural sector, we need to look at selling food in Asia. Of course the enemy does not want us doing that because they want the Asian markets all to themselves. But we are determined to compete.

But we will not stop with food production. The demand on world markets for oil is very great. Therefore, we must find alternatives to fossil fuels. One alternative is biofuels. Alongside food production, we in Africa must produce the raw materials for biofuels. This includes such high starch plants as soybeans, corn, rice and many other crops that can be grown in harsh desert like environments. This biofuel raw materials will be sold in ASIA and Latin America. So, we would be fools to make enemies of the very same people who must buy our products and who at the same time invest their money in Africa.

China has well over $100 billioninvested in Africa. Theyhave over $10 billion in Zimbbawe alone. This amount is growing daily. Plus, there is japan, Indonesia. India, Pakistan, etc. Ideally Africa will focus on doing business with Asia and to heck with Europe. This is why the white man keeps sending his Uncle Tom and Aunt Jemima traitors in here trying to stir up trouble between Asia and Africa. We loose he wins. Only fools fall for that.

Before 1492, the white man though the world was flat. At that time, Africans were doing business all over the world especially in Asia and vice versa. Now that we are starting to wake up, we will again dominate the entire world trading system. And the white man will be left on the margins again. This is why they spend so much efforts trying to brainwash us.

No one is upset and no one is confused.

It's just the WAY in which some of us go about doing things. It's childlike. We talk about building business and economics, but when I mention investing I'm called a fool and inferior. It's the THINKING that black people have that prevents us from much of what is being talked about.

You are absolutely correct on this one.

I have proposed a Convention People's Party Pan-Africanist Credit Union. The rreason a credit union is better than a bank is because the community owns the credit union and no one or two people can sell it to get rich at the person level. Plus, we must have DONATED labor to get it started. There is no way around DONATIONS to start a credit union. We are not a for profit business like a bank.

The reason we need a credit union is it will enable us to invest in black owned businesses. If we set aside only 1/10th percent of every dollar that passes throug a credit union, we will have a huge amount to make loans and investments. Also, we can hold a minimum amount in reserve which the law requires anyhow. That is money that can be invested. But, I have walked from door to door trying to get people to understand this. But instead of sitting down to talk to me man tro man, they pass an oridnance saying it is against the law to walk door to door and sic the cops on me. When that does not work, they sic the Nation of Islam on me.

It ain't that simple. First of all, the KKK will not allow us to own business in this country. To have Economic Development in this community, we must first have at least a viable poltical party such as the Convention People's Party ( http://conventionpeoplesparty.org/ ) to give political direction. The political direction must be to develop and PROTECT black owned businesses. The Dummycrats will never do this. The CPP will do it. In fact, that is what we are all about.

With the proper political direction, we will do such things as deposit city funds in black owned banks and credit unions. That is taxpayer money. But we have so-called black mayors and governors and presidents. But all that money is ALWAYS deposited in white man's bank. Something is seriously wrong with that picture.

But CPP led political direction will not stop there. The CPP is a worldwide political party. That means that we have active ties all over Africa and reach into the halls of power all over Africa. So when a government in Africa sits down and decides where to buy this or that from, the CPP's role is to direct them to black owned business in the USA and vice versa.

These are just a couple examples. But once we get started thinking in this direction, more and more ideas and projects along this line will emerge.

One more thing, the CPP is also actively enaged with our friends in Asia and Arabia and Latin America and even in Europe.
