First, I list the words “Black and African” in this commentary with a slash because I view these words to be interchangeable. I believe that all Black people are some type of African people, given the evidence, so I don’t debate it.  Next, I am not a professional writer, nor do I plan to be.  There’s already enough Black scholars, writers, professional speakers, etc. What we need are more doers, more problem solvers, more sound-minded strategic leaders.  I try to be one of the Black folks menti

I am drawing this title from an article that I read that I wish to share with you. However, I want to make a few comments before I share the article with you.
One of the things that I find most interesting about how people talk about Africa is that they tend to think that Africa and its people are homogeneous.  While they may share many similarities, they are not exactly homogeneous.  In fact, there are many cultures and subcultures in Africa.  First off Afric

For what exactly are we praying?

Ah!

Readers will agree that this column has consistently maintain the principled stance that prayers are no substitutes for thinking and planning.

By BENJAMIN LEBRAVE

According to a 2012 Gallup International survey about religiosity and atheism, Ghana is one of the most religious countries in the world. At first glance, there is some evidence for this: when you land in Accra, you’ll notice churches everywhere you go. If you look even closer, you’ll see Mormon missionaries on their bikes throughout the country.

But are Ghanaians very relig

Can the American populace be that blind, deaf and dumb? Did they just crawl out from under a rock when they heard about Omar Mateen's 911 call saying he was an ISIS sympathizer? Did they not want it to be heard that he said he wanted America to stop bombing  his country of Afghanistan? Why was it redacted from the original release of the

But whether globalization has become a moral indicator in a social framework does not change the fact that it is an inevitable reality precipitated by the wave and tides of human civilization, anchored on science and technology.
