Moss-Side adventurers

The Lovelocks, Jacobs, Henryís, Larea and McGarahans all failed to make an impact in Jamaica yet they are true Jamaicans...the Henryís migrated to the US and everyone one of them ended up shot dead (Texas)just trying to figure out someone elseís way of life.

We all grew up together..I still feel guilty for singing the praises of the US to the Henry's..they migrated to the US a few years after I came back..I feel guilt every time I see their kids..I avoid their kids now..how sad is that.

I migrated to Missouri and I had no idea what Texas was like..I thought the US was the same from State to State..those Texans are crazier than maddogs..they can just turn on you.

I'm posh now..I donít need all this riff raff around me. I may not have fought for it all my life ( a short stint in the US) but Iím still here. Truth be told though..Iím only here becuase my kiddo chooses to be here...she doesnít even need me anymore..her Mother broke away when she was sixteen and so did I...my daughters closest friend is a Jamaican lad (boring) but thats her choice.
I brought her up to be cold..when she defies me I can see in her eyes that she is genuine.. I pretend to be pissed but secretly Iím proud.
We are going to the Darby match Monday..Man U v Man City..east stand player entry Old Trafford.....the theatre of losers..Man City 2 Man U 0

You have quoted a comment that you probably believe otherwise you wouldnít have quoted it...you just shot yourself in the foot...you have gone full circle now...we are back to square on..now what? You lack the pull to change anything so just get on with your life and maybe focus on your immediate community wherever that maybe.
WOW, freddie47.
anyway, if you were to put one and one together you would so easily figure out a lot about DeeQueen.
will visit your pub/club one day., i think you described it very well somewhere on this thread. But first let me finish 'pretending' I am trying to solve Africa's (our) problems :-)

Dee, please don't pay that miserable fool any mind. He isn't African, and has nothing substantive to contribute to any conversion pertaining to Africans.

In other words, he's a troll.

Bakari..people like you need to be brought down to earth. I aint no troll..I do know if you canít bring about change in Oakland you wonít stand a chance in Lagos..you have nothing to bring to the table. Your essays and dissertations will just end up gathering dust.

Get yourself a rucksack/knapsack and go to Africa..that is what I did when I migrated to the US. IMO I think youíll find Lagos is for more notorious than Oakland CA...so What are you saying.?

Here were go from CNN < http://edition.cnn.com/2013/07/25/world/afric... ;

"HOW AFRICA'S RESOURCES FUEL THE WORLD
From laptops to cell phones, cars to airplanes, all kinds of everyday products are made using minerals that come from Africa. It's no exaggeration to say that the world depends on Africa's natural resources.
Those resources are crucial exports for many African countries, and while resource wealth doesn't always benefit ordinary people, there is no doubt that the global commodities boom is helping to power the economies of Africa's resource-rich nations.
Click on the categories to the left, or use the arrows on the side to see just a few of the countless products that use Africa's natural resources, and how those raw materials fuel African economies."

@Dee Queen..,

I agree wholeheartedly but now what?..what does that have to with us..surely the problem is based in Africa.

I think you have lost the plot sweetie..you really are barking up the wrong tree..if you fail to see that then there is no hope for us..what is it that you expect us to do?..spit it out.

Do you expect us to boycott mobile/cell phones becuase cobalt is mined in Africa..I donít get it.

Your best bet is to let sleeping dogs lie before you get us all shot up..go deal with your own problems..sorry.

Dee..we have problems of our own just in case you havenít noticed...this is basic Dee.

And we wonder why we look to Black Americans for inspiration. And Iím not placing a heavy load on their shoulders becuase they just make headway naturally without any fuss.

@Dee

Africaís lot in life is to create unity amongst Black people..that is what we are looking for from Africa in my opinion..what are you doing to bring about unity in Africa?.

Stop focusing on the Diaspora..leave us alone...we havenít got a clue what is going on in Africa in my opinion.

Seriously, The Economist has just described it as the "hopeful continent". McKinsey report referred to African economies as "Lions on the move." The World bank wants to unleash Africa's potential: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =eA-Ene4nJscXX. The Wall Street Journal believes USA needs to tap into Africa's potential: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405311... .
With all this momentum, do you think Africa is on its way to beat USA and become the most dominant economy in the world?
Africa is the most abused economy in the world. Any great leaps and wealth that Africa may produce does her no good as long as she has unfair trade & labor practises. Africa has always been a source of world intrest, even in antiquity. The fact that foreign nations turn their eyes to Africa, only suggest that they are starving economically and wish to be feed. Keep in mind that they labeled this current down turn as a "World ressesion". My only concern is for the Africans, and what will be their benefit of such trade ? All I can suggest is for Africans to learn from history, and never trust a smiling fool who call himself/herself your friend.

The reason why china can sell stuff cheaper than the rest of us is becuase of access to cheap labour and raw materials...the key ingredients to profitable manufacturing...China will do whatever it takes to ensure they maintain the upper hand.

The US and the EU are snapping at Chinas heels..you have Eastern Europe (cheap labour) on my side, and Mexico (cheap labour) on the US side.

Africa doesnít even come into it...they are just a source of raw materials..Africa is an afterthought...the race now is to gain a foothold in Africa and, we all know Africans are known for selling themselves short.

I gave up on Africa, Jamaica and India a long time ago..I know the leaders are out to enrich themselves and their predecessors are groomed to follow suit.

You heart is in the right place..I donate to Africa via British Red Cross...I can at least go online a view their annual accounts to see where my money is spent...I refuse to waste my time with the rest of that BS.
