PROUD TO BE BLACK-WHATS WRONG WITH MY COLOR

Been a colored person can be so frustrating most time that you are forced to ask what is really wrong with my colour, or am I just cursed? Or is there an existing covenant tying me down?
Globally, the state of black people around the World is of paramount concern.
In my own little years of existence on earth, I have come to notice the great divide between the black regions of the World.
From Australia among the Aborigines, to Latin America, to the Caribbean and the chief of them Africa, blacks always seems to be at the bottom of these societies, both socially and economically. Leaving me again with the Questions are blacks cursed? What could have gone wrong? What could have been responsible for these centuries of oppression and backwardness?
Though we blacks have been here for a very long time we are still at the bottom, in the midst of the great abundance the Creator of life as blessed us with, with abundance of large mineral deposit of various kinds in every region where we are found! But still poverty continues to increase in our lands! Which is now seen as a part of life, as some folks are now accepting poverty as destiny, saying to be rich or poor in Life is in the hands of the creator, that who ever he says will be rich will be, but whoever is not will be poor, but to me that’s just the misconception and self pity words of encouragement in coming to terms with accepting poverty.

Among all these many challenges of the black race, we still stand tall keeping our heads high, knowing we can succeed if we are given the chance. Our professionals abroad are a testimony to the fact that we are indeed blessed and not cursed, their achievement is a relieve to us that we can be who ever will want to be, if we have the enabling environment, which unfortunately seems to be far attainable among our regions. But in all these we still keep our hopes alive, waiting for the great revival that will sweep across the lands of the black race.

Solid Foundation they say is key to everything in life, the foundations created by our fore fathers has not been built on common goals and trust, rather of selfish interest. Our freedom from our colonial master was most time built on selfish interest of who controls the power and whose words becomes law, Our fore fathers where busy sharing the regions and choosing who becomes the Lord of the manor, rather than building a society where people are ready to coexist and succeed together. A society that will be build on common principle and collective goals on how to succeed.

The hunger for power has been the undoing of the Leaders of the black race.
The lack of sincere and genuine commitment to the success of society is the reason for the wide spread corruption in every facet of the society.
Like I was telling a friend sometimes ago, In my own opinion, it looks as if greed is now an hereditary thing. From one decade to the other Blacks have had leaders that loot the treasury at will at the expense of the general public. They have over the years become some sort of a mafia Lord that they want to control a larger proportion of the common wealth that is meant for the people. Rather than develop their land, they are comfortable going abroad for treatment, in the name of high standard modern facilities which they have not been able to provide back home.
Corruption keeps striving on a daily basis among the ruling and elite class, which is now fast spreading into other facet of the region with Citizens getting increasingly corrupt with everyday gone by.
·         Blacks are not cursed, is only that there are few committed individuals.
·         Blacks are not cursed if only leaders can be less corrupt and for ones have a united voice against corruption, with a strong drive to move society forward by committing needed resources to growth and development rather than the usual politics of GHANA MUST GO( a popular phrase in my country Nigeria, for politicians whose only interest is stealing from the treasury).
·         Blacks are not cursed only if we are united in views and common positive goals, But In my Opinion we are as diverse in views just like we are in race and tongue, every one is always correct, and nobody is willing to buy the others mans ideas, Even if some buy into an idea, there is always a case of some going against commonly agreed stands. Which as continued to be the great divide that our Governments have over the years continued to use against us.
·         Blacks are not cursed only if we Put a larger percentage of our resources in Educating the MIND, our Government have continue to pay lip service to the Issue of education that there is little resources committed to training and research in our Higher institute of learning. Giving room to little or no advancement in Technological growth and advancement.
·         Blacks are not cursed only if we collectively help each other to succeed-Only among Blacks you see people holding back information that is capable of helping their fellow country men, rather they are always happy giving charities, expecting the people in return to worship them, the idea of teaching a man how to fish, rather than always giving him fish is never in their philosophy!


WE HOPE FOR A REVOLUTION OF CHANGE, BUT WHEN THOSE CHANGE WE COME? WE NEVER CAN TELL, ONLY BUT HOPE!! GOD BLESS THE BLACK RACE.
