What Black America Can Learn from Communist China

What Can Black America Learn from Communist China?

Build Businesses and Prosper

By Robert N. Taylor

When it comes to China, the numbers are truly astounding. The Asian giant has the fastest growing economy in the world - averaging roughly 10 percent growth per year for the past 25 years. By way of contrast, if we in the United States grow by just three percent, our economists consider that good news.

In fact, China is growing so rapidly that it expects to build a… Continue

Get A Functional Unity Calendar for Your City

A Functional Unity Calendar for Your City?

What would it mean if all or most progressive African

(Black) organizations and institutions in your city all used a

single online calendar to post their events and to check the

events of other organizations and institutions?

And what if the calendar allowed for great detail;

including contact phone, web and email information?

And what if the calendar was dynamic: letting you post

Economic Armageddon

From the Ramparts

Junious Ricardo Stanton

Economic Armageddon

“It is often reported in the headlines of newspapers that a certain gentleman or woman had been brutally beaten up for failing to pay the debts due to a money-lender. In Malaysia, money-lenders are often referred to as “Ah-Longs”. This is even the case when the debt is paltry. If the money-lender adopts the “soft method” in recovering a loan, it may encourage defaults and non-payments. Brutality… Continue

The sincerity of our words are soothing and healing to others

Family, I'm in tears as I type these few lines. My co-worker recently lost her mother who was only 54 years old. She died of cancer in October 2008. My co-worker and friend is currently reading Somebody Prayed for Me, and she just called me in tears after reading the story "One Moment With You" and the poem "Always In My Heart." These are pieces dedicated to the memory of my maternal grandmother who raised me, nurtured me, loved me, and taught me about being a strong woman. She died at the age… Continue

Crystal Ball Gazing

“In the real estate realm, the proverbial ‘other shoe’ hasn’t dropped yet, but certainly is dangling - and that’s commercial real estate. As homeowners writhe in agony and stop spending, retailers will go out of business, businesses of all stripes will suffer and commercial real estate will implode. The leverage left over from just the private equity foray into commercial real estate in the… Continue

Nigeria's Constitution: Immunity Clause - To Remove or Not to Remove

It is perhaps expedient for me to begin this article by acknowledging that I am also contributing to a debate which has been raging for a long time, and to which thousands of Nigerians all over the world have contributed their own opinions. While I do not want to appear repetitive, it is instructive to note that I will definitely not have the last word on this matter, for as long as the debate continues to rage. Hence I am not daunted to contribute to it, because my little voice will add more… Continue

Dear Reader, before you think or say “Oh my God, not another essay about Nigerian corruption from this guy”, please bear with me. First, the issue of corruption in my country has been a passion with me since childhood. Secondly, this is not another article about the consequences of corruption in Nigeria, but to narrate some personal political experiences. So please forgive me.

When I consented to coordinate the plans for the… Continue

An African Slave-Eye View of the Bloodsucking Meltdown

How Americans Were Duped and Sold a Pack of Lies

(At left: Stacks like these have evaporated from circulation due to hoarding and concentration of cash by deep pocket financiers.)

The assessment of the so-called Financial Meltdown and the gov’t “bail out” appears to be a constantly shifting premise. So we must continually strive to accurately sum… Continue

Some Thoughts On Affordable and Social Housing in Nigeria

One of the continuing challenges posed by unprecedented urbanization in developing countries, including Nigeria, is the provision of adequate and affordable housing. Over the last three decades, Nigeria, like several developing countries, has emphasised public housing schemes, but with little success (Ogu and Ogbuozobe, 2001)

According to the 2006 Census, (please note that this particular population census efforts are very challenging due to several social cultural problems) Nigeria… Continue

Perspectives On Nigeria’s Anti-Corruption War

"What is truth?" Pilate asked. As for Pilate, he sought no answer from Jesus for his question. Instead, he washed the responsibility from his hands (Matt. 27:24) and walked away from the truth. In Mel Gibson's film, The Passion of the Christ, Pilate's wife answers her husband: "If you will not hear the truth, no one can tell you."

Truth, when trying to define it, extends from honesty, reality, good faith, and sincerity in general, to… Continue

I have just returned from Nigeria, which in itself is not news to anybody, and I also visited our capital city, Abuja. Abuja is arguably one of the most beautiful cities in sub-Saharan Africa. If we don’t want to go that far, then it is the only beautiful city in Nigeria. It has got much about everything that a modern city should have – imposing beautiful public and government buildings; private abodes with exquisite out-of-this-world architecture (most of these are actually castles or villas,… Continue

Novakane is currently #75 on the R & B/ Hip Hop Charts & Shawty Said has received over 10,000 bds spins

Real and ruthless is the tune of STP Music Group’s newest remedy Novakane. While most newcomers attempt to pull off their "one big hit" by matching it with a dance move, Novakane represents for the true hip-hop fans who still respect raw expression without the games and gimmicks. Ferocious as a Chicago wind, Nokavane’s approach is numbing to the senses. And he intends to keep it that way.

Since You're Giving Away All That Money ...

Since You’re Giving Away All That Money . . .

“The financial meltdown has been and will continue to plunge the working class into levels of destitution worse than those seen in the “Great Depression.” As a prelude to this banking, Wall Street and our government squanders taxpayer money on idiotic schemes to prop up bankrupt Illuminist banks, Wall Street, insurance companies and select Illuminist corporations.
