Nothing is more amazingly tragic than the current generation of African-Americans completely clueless about the global economic transformations going on in this world. It’s like Afro-Americans are looking at Noah building his Ark and Noah got all the animals lined up and Black folks still walking by and saying whatever. This article is going to try to clue brothas and sistas to what is going on in this world and hopefully, their Black ass can get a clue.
One of the most priceless things I saw recently was, well let me start this off. I was at this Omega Psi Phi party at Atlantic Station a few weeks and it was this cute sista I already knew at the party getting all the attention from the brothas and she was just the life and knew she was all that. Well, very recently at a corporate complex I was waiting at the elevator and these two Brazilian chicks showed up in all tights and had curves more dramatic than a sista – they are here on business. I noticed coming to the elevators a bunch of fine sistas, including the one from that party.
Trust me, I cannot describe the look on these sistas faces at these two Brazilian chicks and one of them was bending over showing her big behind expanded. We were all in that elevators and the sistas were looking at the Brazilian chicks in so much envy and jealously and silence and the chick from the party had her mouth open in a gasp! I was in that elevator wishing I can snap a photo of this ish because this ish was priceless!
The look on those sistas faces is exactly the look all of you clueless African-Americans need to have on your face instead of some artificial smug that is the result of a reinforced ego. As much as you clueless brothas and sistas want to believe so badly you are a privileged racial class in America, you are extremely failing to recognize what is going on globally that has already seriously impacted your lives and will further seriously impact the lives of your children.
The first thing the Black ego wants to do is try to come at me. They want to classify me as some nutjob or an alarmist or whatever. Well, anybody who thinks that way, my response is their momma is a nutjob, an alarmist and after I slept with their mom, whatever. Unfortunately, I’m not some kook and if the data is as real as I see, I really wish I was a kook and all this ish is a lie and just praying at a Black mega church, posting some cute phrases on Facebook like “So blessed” is going to solve all of these problems. But it ain’t and we need to get a clue.
Arab and Euro Spring Cleaning
The Middle East has went through a revolution toppling many dictators and it is apparent that more dictators are going to find themselves on the way out without any mercy. The reason for the overthrow in the Middle East was simply because the people were getting doctorate college degrees but fighting for taxi cab jobs in their country. But now that they are going through transformations, the one thing they got is they are smart and cheap in the Middle East and that doesn’t bold well for African-Americans who feel a sense of entitlement to opportunities.
In Europe, the American news is not even covering how bad it is actually going on over there. Europe have experienced the most serious economic disaster that is not going to hold up, even with austerity cuts. All you Boule and bougie Black folks wanting to run to Europe and ish, go knock yourself out but you ain’t really seeing what’s about to happen to that whole EU in the next 5 years which is why I don’t talk about Europe so much on this blog.
Europe had a lot of social programs where they were paying a lot of social services but not bringing in the kind of money to pay for it. What happened is a majority of the citizens weren’t producing and just enjoying social services to get by and when you spend more than you can bring in because you have a floating settlement date that settlement date will eventually come around. And that is what’s going on in Europe right now.
The danger here to Afro-Americans is we got Black folks in America wearing kinte cloths and talking about they on some Pan-African nonsense but the Europeans are running to Africa like Mexicans were running to America to see better opportunities. In addition, Europeans are also running to other emerging nations such as Brazil and throughout the Pacific Rim. Go take your Black ass to Costa Rica and see how many young Spain cats are now in the area as ex-pats setting up hustles. These ex-pats are running from Europe and taking global hustles away from African-Americans who are just sitting on their ass and think these global hustles are just waiting for Black folks to take over.
Overall, the Middle East and European youth are creating a diaspora and setting up a global hustles. African-Americans strongly risk being shut out of global economic opportunities because we sitting here on some bullsh*t listening to Radio One, reading celebrity gossip blogs and watching reality shows and just wasting away.
Pacific Rim Rising
In the Southeast Asian region, one of the biggest economic disruptions that will seriously impact clueless African-Americans is going on as you sit here. I don’t know what you are going to do tonight, but it damn sure will not be us brothas and sistas collectively dealing with and understanding the ASEAN collective that is forming.
When you check out the overview of ASEAN economic goals in the video below, please freeze the video and 2:10 and tell me what you see. Yeah, you take a long hard look at what you see at 2:10 in that video:
Oh, did you also noticed at 2:32 the traffic sign with the animated walking symbol? Your Black behind still want to believe these cats are lightweight and on some “me love you long time” ish? They don’t need to run from their country to move in your Black community anymore because they building up their own. Better yet, they don’t need to open a store anymore – they going directly after middle class jobs Black folks used to work and offering 60 cents on the dollar.
In Asia, they are learning in a collaborative format, not this BS standardized test that is destroying our Black children and all of American children from being globally competitive when they grow up. When your American kids grow up, they are just going to be someone who took tests to guess the right answer competing with a whole multi-national front of children growing up telling each other the answer and they all know the right answer because the schools taught them to use knowledge from one another – something we call cheating here in America.
Our American education system is screwing our kids over super hard by this whole testing nonsense. These kids overseas are learning to share knowledge, collaborate on knowledge and execute against shared knowledge while our kids in America are stuck on some stupid ass outdated test-taking BS! Do you honestly and can you honestly look your kids in the eye and believe they will grow up and compete with these other kids sharing knowledge?!
Right now, African-Americans are being trade consumers with a 100% trade deficit meaning we have next to nothing we are producing to sell to them but we are 100% customers of what they have to offer us. That is economic failure on behalf of African-Americans and clueless cats can run and go read their Black Enterprise magazines trying to stay in denial if they tired of hearing the truth of our current situation.
Now, Back Here in America
I had an incident with my business taxes and when I ran into this incident with the government, that’s when it hit me what’s really going on. Overall, entrepreneurial Americans are being punished in the USA for starting businesses and trying to contribute to this country economic engine and create jobs. It is not the Federal government or the US President, but at the local level at state and county level where businesses are catching the most hell.
I realize something as I was listening to this one government worker sound really nasty to me with an attitude over the phone about the taxes. I was thinking to myself that this kind of red tape stuff would not even occur if I just started an online business or even better yet, I move to another country and start a business. When I looked at business opportunities in other countries including China, I realize it was easier to launch a capitalistic venture in Communist China than free market America! I’m not the only one who realize that as much large CEOs made this same statement.
The truth of the matter is some people with talent are either starting online businesses or moving overseas to launch their operations. Cats are not opening up physical stores or launching physical businesses because the red tape and licensing and other crap is just too much. Remember that food truck park I blogged about a few weeks ago? The City of Atlanta was shutting these food trucks down because they didn’t have permits to be at the location – shutting down micro-entrepreneurs instead of just letting them stay operational and gave them a 7-day waiver to work out the permits. That’s exactly what I’m talking about with doing physical business here in America.
If you cannot open up physical businesses, you cannot create an economic engine that creates jobs. We got a lot of politicians who do not understand this basic concept and quick to attack free enterprise operations and that’s why a lot of new entrepreneurs don’t want to create storefronts. When I was in Nicaragua and in this small village, it was this guy from Louisiana who opened a breakfast café near the jungle serving some damn good food! I actually remember him telling me he was doing what he loved, he hired his people easily and he contributes to the community down there. I didn’t realize what he was expressing until just now.
Black politicians are extremely frustrating and even more frustrating is these fake ass Black leaders like Al Sharpton who don’t even talk one damn word about entrepreneurship and economic development. Cats cannot open businesses without barriers and red tape and some bureaucrat trying to shut them down over some trivial incomplete paperwork. So that means Blacks can’t find jobs, the county is pressuring cops to find any reason to lock up people and make them pay fines or probation fees.
With that said, African-Americans are being extremely targeted for arrest and hopefully incarceration and in most cases, targeted for justifiable homicide. It is still a lot of clueless brothas and sistas do not realize the environment and still running their mouth and showing their ego not realize the entire trap game is setup for them. Blacks do not want to believe a system is in place to marginalize them at the first opportunity and designed to take them down and marginalize them with the goals of having little to no recovery as a result.
African-Americans are scared to move globally and make global moves. Nigerians and other Africans are setting up new communities worldwide while educated African-Americans still working jobs and ish thinking that job and paycheck stuff is going to sustain them like the previous generation. Well, go look at the previous generation – they ain’t doing too well, the last I checked.
Brothas and sistas have to understand before they go to bed tonight the global economic shifts that is happening in Europe and Asia as well as the pullback going on in the US economy. Black media, Black leadership and Black friends are clueless or not wanting to tell brothas and sistas the truth because they want to keep as many Blacks here in America as Black consumers of their products. We got to wake up.
I have not even went into Africa because that is a whole blog about African-Americans running to Nollywood to produce films, how Africa is setting up sustainable construction and food efforts as well as growing a next generation financial payment system which will in turn create a rapid growth in their economy.
The thing I want to leave is this – you young brothas and sistas need to realize the reality of this whole situation. You young brothas and sistas don’t got people around you to tell you how the world global economy is shaping up and you need to be a part of it. You young brothas and sistas need to listen to this right here because I’m doing it on that level and I’m straight telling you the world is already moving ahead. You need to get global, you need to make global moves and you need to position yourself or you will be left out.
