That is one thing I like about some countries in Africa, tax free all the way, you can buy land and buy a house just like without all the politics

lol. two mud huts. keep up the false views about Africa my dear, we will continue to develop and get richer. I just bought a $350,000 beach house villa near a gorgeous lake back home. sure some of my neighbours are poor and we are putting money together to upgrade the school (we are not going to provide welfare for them, no our poor are not loosers like aas, the actually prefer getting a job to receiving handouts). in the meantime, your clowning rich people are not able to keep up and Africans will keep getting richer. you can keep talking of mud huts and deceiving your self. mugu!
You do realize your location is underneath your name, correct?

Unless Arlington Virginia is suddenly in Africa, you're full of BS.

This why over 46% of the African population lives on a dollar a day.

You do know that most of Africa does not use the dollar, let's talk about how much in their currency! Such arrogance!

Samuel from New Hampshire, you think I got a near perfect SAT score and 95 percentile GRE score and did not realize that everyone's location is listed (except for those who hide their location?). I mentioned in my posts that I am paid enough to afford trips outside the continent. I am currently in the US for two and a half weeks, part business part pleasure. I will be attending the african business conference in Boston - I will post more on that in later posts.

Right now, I am with my female cousin who is doing a medical specialization at Johns Hopkins in the DC Virginia area. She is the one who uses the name Koliko, I think she reads too much nonsense on this website. It is making her think that aas are all bad. I have advised her to remember what we taught her back home - there is good and bad in every home, country and race.

so you see, no BS on my side. I have no reason to front or bull sh** anyone. I paid for my business fare on on Air France - transit through Paris - business class. It cost about $7000, my employer paid 75% because I will be doing some business at the Harvard conference. as mentioned, I am saving for a trip to India next year (cant wait) and also saving for the olympics and World cup in Brazil. what about you? where will you be saving up to go to?

by the way, my cousin (the orignal koliko) said some of the pathetic racist trolls - idi amin dada and auntie bee - were making fun of my earlier posts and falling back on the same old Aids and grass skirts views. Pathetic species who are here because they have nothing else going for them.

she said idi amin dada mentioned on another site that he is not going to donate another dollar to an african charity. Oh yes, that will make all the billion Aricans starve because his money is not coming. He does not know that most of those charities are frauds. the founders and staff spend 90% of your donations on salaries and trips to the continent. dont think you ever fed any African.

And sassy something something said americans give more to charity? maybe. In my case, I do not donate money to people who are not prepared to work, I prefer to pay the school fees of kids who are determined to be successful rather than giving the money to their mothers for example.

Oh, how could I forget, one of the billionnaires in South Africa just joined Warren Buffet and Bill Gates and is donating about a billion dollars to charity. I am sure that his donations cannnto fill the hole left by idi amin dada's refusal to feed us.

A lot of AA are now finding out their DNA connection to Africa and are making trips to these various countries within the contient of Africa to embrace their newly learnt hertiage; of what country in the contient of Africa they originally come from.
DNA- mans ' blue print' that can follow him for MANY thousands of years.

Dear Happy from New York I am not sure about your powers of reading comprehension. If you read the article it tells you that the top billionnaires and millionnaires in Africa get their money from telecommunications, manufacturing, mining and other 'real' investments. The top aa billionnaires and millionnaires are all in entertainment.

Entertainment is more of a temporary and fleeting source of riches... ask Michael Jackson and even Oprah who is slipping in the ranks.

Capiche?

One of my employer's subsidiaries is sponsoring the 15th annual african business conference at the harvard business school. The african students group at harvard has been organizing these annual conferences since the 1998/1997 school year. It has gotten bigger every year and the networking with entrepreneurs gets more amazing every year. this is the front page, I will paste some of the notable speakers later this week before i set out for boston.

the ambition and motivation is just palpable!! also note the large numbe rof europeans and white americans who live and work in Africa because of the business opportunities and entrepreneurial potential (unlike poor idi amin stuck at his low level job and hating everyone else).

http://www.hbsafricaconference.com/

note that all the ivy league business schools have large groups of african students and almost all of them have started the harvard tradition of organizing annual business conferences. they get a lot of speakers too. Vive l'afrique!

Lol mud huts. Africa may have some poor but the rich here are rich and there is a fast growing middel class. But to those Black Amricans who like to insult Africa. A poor kid in SA gets a better level of education than a kid in the getho in Amrica.

based on the article there is a difference(and that is how the article was titled), that is the point. The similarity of both being wealthy is obvious they are talking about the differences in how they got their wealth
