Written by Dr. Oluyemi Olawaiye
I have battled with the idea of writing this article for over 3 years, but only got the needed incentive yesterday in the form of an extremely shallow, misinformed, inaccurate, deceptive and downright misleading documentary I watched on You Tube about how Nigeria was this drastically rising economic super power within the continent of Africa, and was going through this

It is a particular rub for me in this case as this is a subject that I have explored, studied, understood it pros and cons across

NB Commentary:
I am sharing this piece for the information that it contains. All too often we tend to use rhetoric, stereotypes and innuendos when talking about our African brothers and sisters in the Homeland. Many of us have been conditioned to see and believe that African peoples are and have been primitive with no real social order, familial structure, civilization, rules or customs. Those of us who have traveled there come to see a different wo

Why & How Africans Embrace Christianity

Invasion Through Conversion


"A striking example of how Christianity destroys a proud culture, by introducing "doubt". The Christian body is imperfect, we are "sinners". These beautiful people learn for the first time, that their behavior is a "sin". A bigger psychological disastrous impact is the fictitious idea of the Christian afterlife, their current world is a place of sin, they are sinners, the "real life" will start in the afterlife. Makes me think what proud people we could be, if we could

NB Commentary: But they do know how it came about. they know who created it and why. It was bio-warfare, created in the laboratory. It has killed many in its wake and has filled the coffers of the pharmaceutical companies.

It was first experimented on white gay males who had Hepatitis and was believed to cure them of that disease. It did not and instead spread. Once they saw the impact of it spreading they decided to take it to Africa and blame it on

REMEMBER AFRICA?

Here's a interesting collection of Information that was just given to me, thought I'd share it.

REMEMBER AFRICA?

After Africans liberated themselves for Europe, the America's (north, south and central America's) and the Middle East (wanting to rule themselves). They were cut off from aid - trade, food and technology. While the aid that was giving was handed over to puppet leaders rather then the people. With interest on the aid leaving Africa in crushing debt. The poverty fueled gangs in which non

Rebranding Rwanda

May 1, 2012          

Raynard Jackson

When the average American thinks of Rwanda, there are two thoughts that come to mind—genocide and gorillas.

During the early 1990s, Rwanda killed almost 1 million of its own people in a brazen display of ethnic cleansing.  As with the Jewish Holocaust, the world stood idly by and pretended that they saw nothing! 

Rwanda is also known to contain an estimated 1/3 of the world’s mountain gorillas.

This is the extent of the knowledge most Americans have about Rwanda.

EMPRESS VOICESEXCERPT:

Indeed, there is great strategy involved in allowing a select number of Blacks to advance.  Specifically, in positioning a number of Blacks in top positions, it helps to deflect accusations of racism in America.  Thus, people become focused on what America looks like rather than what it does.  Accordingly, the principle of fighting structural discrimination is eclipsed by the desire to showcase difference through symbolic gestures.  Therefore, the presence of Blacks in cert

   It's hard to believe that fifteen years have passed since the First Wall Street Project opened in New York City. It was 1997, at at that time we actually were on Wall Street, with many of the events happening either in board rooms, on the trading room floors, or at the World Trade Center.

I can remember sitting in the top of the World Trade Center at one of the luncheons, in a facility where the ceilings were arched, and so low that you had to bend to be in there, and
