Would you contribute to a central bank account to harness our buying/spending power? - Sis. Iman Uqdah Hameen, NY

As far as our buying/spending power - we, as a people, need to set up a massive campaign

and establish a bank account (somewhere trustworthy, where ever or however that is -

that all "African Americans" MUST contribute to, to aid in the development of Africa.
It can be earmarked for poverty, AIDs, water purification, fighting malaria, setting up a model
community in each region of Africa - or any such project. the $ can be divided equitably among the 6 regions. Like paying tithe to church - we need to pay into an account that we are all committed

to. With accountability - it can be done.
Sis. Iman Uqdah Hameen, NY
Note: The African Union has divided the continent of Africa into 6 regions - north, south, east,
west, central AND the African Diaspora to herald into existence, a United States of Africa
(Union of African States). A central bank is a foundational vehicle that can be instituted and realized
with the advent of a United Africa. Imagine our account in such a bank. Something like this will foster
responsibility, accountability, direction, focus, self-pride and financial independence. Imagine, too,
the posture of our young folks with a legacy like that to lay claim to. If we care to end saggy pants,
low morals and the loss of another generation, we must raise our standards, up our ante and accomplish what we will with sound, viable, tangible, practical programs and initiatives.

"Our resources are pillaged and our creativity is retarded when we become socially amnesic. We forget coping skills that were learned in the past and that yet can still be useful in the present. If we forget everything we’ve learned in the past, what babbling babies we would become. If we forget everything we’ve learned in the past we would not know how to cope with many of the problems and issues that confront us as we move through life. We can’t drop our past; that’s where we learned our coping skills.
Let me give a quick example of what this really means. Let’s look at economics. Afrikan-Americans earn $300 billion per year spending money, which would make us the ninth or tenth richest nation on Earth, yet we perceive ourselves as “poor.” A group that can only spend money, can only support other peoples. Harlem’s 125th Street now contains 68 Korean businesses; 68 and growing fast! But I don’t see Koreans walking up and down those blocks spending any money at all. In fact, I hardly see any other ethnic group on that street; I only see Afrikan people. Even Hispanics are not on it to any great degree. Yet we enrich the Koreans and other ethnic groups, support them, feed their children while ours starve and die, become addicted to crack, rob and steal, and do the kind of things we do not approve of. This is a result of a people who have forgotten their history.
We say, “Well, if we had the money...” It is not money; we are not suffering from a lack of money. No way! Over $50 billion is earned and created [by Blacks] between New York and Newark [New Jersey], so we’re not suffering from any great money problems. We’re suffering from the absence of an economic system. Money is not a system, money is what it is. A system involves the systematic and organized utilization of money; a systematized utilization and distribution of money. Without the pattern, without the system, without the organization, one does not have an economy. An economy exists prior to money. There were economies in the world before money was invented. We don’t even have to have money to have an economic system. So, ultimately, when we study economic systems we recognize that an economic system at its base refers to the nature of the relationship between people. It’s the systematic way people choose to relate one to the other that makes an economic system---not money. When we lack a systematic way of relating to each other then we can have money and still be poor, have money and be robbed---which is what we are.
Why do we suffer from this problem then? Why is the Black personality created? I try to get across the fact that every maladjusted characteristic in the Black personality serves an economic function. Each maladjustive characteristic is not there by accident; it’s not there simply because Europeans hate us. It’s there because it maintains their economic dominance. If I’ve got money I can help you, but if I distrust you, I won’t help you and you may not make it. It’s not the absence of money---it’s the presence of mistrust. If I will not cooperate, if you cannot rely on me, then we cannot have an economic system, even though we may have money. In other words, a people must trust, be reliable, be dependable, have respect for each other if they are to develop a viable economic system. When they have those kinds of relationships they have a social system, and they can build and they grow economically. Suspiciousness and other negatives are implanted in the collective Black personality so that Afrikan people cannot challenge European people, even though we are a majority of the people on this Earth and we live over the riches of this Earth.
A people who do not share history, who do not appreciate the shared experiences that their history represents, are a people who cannot utilize mutual trust, dependability, and so forth, upon which to build an economic system. Afrikan people who forget their history are a people who forget that they had an economy before the European came into existence. They are a people who forget that their economy was developed and maintained prior to the European imperial ascendancy."
