I agree, but in order to have functional networks, you first need to establish the proper institutions; namely, institutions dealing in economic endevours, such as business, finance, etc; policy making and execution, for establishing what protocals to follow, and what consquences will be enacted for not following them; and governance/management/administ ration, for communicating instructions, making sure they are followed, maintaining order, reporting intell, keeping track of finances, and essentially making sure everything goes smoothly.

AA's, and Blacks in general, do not have these institutions in place, certainly none or few that are owned and operated wholly by Black hands, and because of this, have no way of establishing such potentially beneficial networks.

But not social or cultural mixing.
In Jamaican culture if a man was filmed whipping his 12 year old daughter with a cable, he would have to immediately go into hiding. He would know the girls maternal uncles, grandfather and his neighbours would be out for his blood.
Jamaican men will tell you "resentfully" how when they were children and they and their sister were naughty, the boy got beat by the father while the girl merely got a telling off.
Also, we don't have many instances of female pedophiles in Caribbean culture, where as it is a common occurrence among African Americans. And not just babysitters from outside the family, but AA MOTHERS sexually abusing their kids.

<quoted text>Interesting
*listening now..had to pause to ask you a question*
What do you think of the point being made that our problems may be linked to genetics..an internal disposition to accept an inferiority position..and I'll add; if you think it's from slave breeding "brawn over brains producing mental challenges?
Genetics has nothing to do with anything, and we are not inherently predisposed to being inferior to anyone.

The problem with Blacks, and it's a problem that is pervasive around the world, is that we don't have many viable institutions.

I've heard people say that our problems are the Black family. Some people say it's the schools. Some people say it's because we don't own enough businesses.

These are all problems but what they really are are **symptoms** of the real problem.

Black people (nationalists really) are trying to operate as though they are a nation of people and don't understand the concept of nation-building.

The first thing you need in a nation are the institutions that are going to prop up your society. And an institution is any structure or mechanism of social order and cooperation governing the behavior of certain factions within a particular group.

Right now, we are a lawless group because there is no order. No governance. No restrictions. There isn't even a moral code anymore. It used to be the church, but now even that is largely ineffective, although, I wouldn't go as far as to say that it is useless.

What I will say is that the problems you see, and the problems everyone likes to complain about, are born out of a lack of proper governance and influence in our society.

Where are the institutions designed to teach Black people entrepreneurship?

Where are the institutions designed to cultivate and enforce respectable behavior in Black neighborhoods?

Where are the institutions designed to teach Black people about power, finance, ownership, self sufficiency, respect, a sense of community?

Where are the institutions designed to teach Black people about their history, viable culture, universal intelligence?

Where are these institutions?

Until Black people develop them, and learn how to maintain them, the problems occurring now are only going to get worse.

I think you might have misunderstood my question, Shalimarr.
I'm not defending AA debauchery. I criticize such behavior all the time, and I personally find it disgusting and wretched.
That being said, I would like to know from you Jamaicans, or whatever other Black group, what is it that you would do if you had the same type of media platforms and audience to improve the economic condition of your people?
I'm not saying this as some type of subliminal jab or insult, I genuinely would like to know.
I don't think the economic condition can be improved as long as black MEN rule black countries.
I was talking to some Nigerian guys and they told me that Nigeria is the 4th richest country in the World, because of it's natural resources.
They explained that because of ruling corruption the country remains undeveloped and in their world conditions.
These Nigerian men are also FULLY aware of the Chinese "invasion" and Nigerian women making babies with Chinese men.
I don't think any media platform can heal the black world, as long as black men control the money in these countries.
There's not a lot AAs can do about who governs Jamaica, Ghana or Nigeria...
But it would be good if another less self hating, white worshipping, mentally depraved, violent group had the platform of representing blacks in film and music.

How do you persuade black men when they are trusted to lead, to invest the $5000 million in schools, colleges and institutions and not just put it in their own personal Swiss bank account?
That's the problem.
On a small scale, you can watch Judge Judy and see black fathers who haven't paid child support in years, yet these men drive expensive cars and are wearing solid gold watches.

On a large scale, Nigerians not having electricty, schools or inside toilets, while the leaders have foreign bank accounts filled with billions of dollars.

White men can lead a country and accept his earnings will be $150,000 a year and not a dime more.
Black men cannot do this.

I believe it has to do with the concept of "Countries" is a European one. Iraq, Iran, India, Pakistan and Egypt were non existent. Those were creations of Europeans and then they expect those leaders to follow suit.

Yes they have. But just because 100-200 year ago you decide something. Doesn't erase thousands of years of history.

You can tell the Shiite and Suni Muslims they belong to one country all you want. But they have no borders and don't feel the need to care about the other tribe.

Africa leaders are educated at some of the best schools in the world. They of all people should know better. But they still hold onto these old world beliefs.

False!

All Caribbean men and women will tell you that scolding was and is still acceptable in the Caribbean...and many will even state that they are successful today of getting whipped....because they would know this is the consequences of their anti-social behaviours....

My aunts who are Caribbean women, do tell me how they were scolded and looking back now, they don't regret it, because this has shaped their lives in a positive way....

In the Caribbean, IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD...IT STILL EXIST IN SOME PARTS OF THE WEST INDIES UNTIL THIS DAY.

Nonsense, the British have no bearing on anything...if you look carefully, whenever any other country is on the Global streams of things, the British quickly wants to align and be seen in the "Corners", with said countries...because in reality the British system has failed...the UK has a non existent economy..it is supported by the Rich Nigerians, who are the fourth largest spender in British shops....

The British education system has failed so much so, that the British needs Indian expertise to help them with their rail-ray and tube systems when its "Broken"... This is what happens when one becomes extremely complacent and believes their "Foolish Glory" will always shine through...those days are over and sad to say, the UK is DEAD.

Very well said , everything she said was bullsh**.
My family is from Caribbean and many of my friends parents are. West Indian parents don't play they even give teacher permission to hit their kids.
Mosy my AA were never beat and their parents were least strict. Jamaicans are the most strict they beat their kids with whatever is near them. Especially of they're In jamaica and not the states.

She stay on here making false claims especially about AA. Nothing wrong with beatings to me it molds the person. Look at the people who weren't disciplined . Compare their behavior to a person who was disciplined.
