Knowledge is the Key, Someday We'll All Be Free

For the mind is the root of life that grows beyond tomorrow. Like a field of sustenance, it must be cultivated to flourish. Flying high aloft the mountain of resistance, transcending the nexus of your current environmental existence. Intertwined within those thoughts resides the Past, existing in the Present as a catalyst to break the mental prism cycle of constrain. Raise your head, that light is not your destiny, look around and we shall see the true reality of that Someday.

  • Most of the time, if there’s no competition, it’s because there is no demand.
  • Don’t rely on research that does not test willingness to buy.

"The statue was made by an anonymous Mexican sculptor, and the image arrived in Manila via galleon from Acapulco, Mexico. Folk tradition attributes the dark colour of the statue to a fire on the ship that charred the originally white skin." -Wikipedia

Considering one of the most famous Presidents of Mexico was of African decent, one must wonder if the status was not designed to represent an African.
"Vicente Guerrero ... born in Tixtla, a town 100 kilometers inland from the port of Acapulco Mexico", ... in 1782. ... "Guerrero was elected the second president of Mexico in 1829. As president, Guerrero went on to champion the cause not only of the racially oppressed but also of the economically oppressed. The most notable achievement of Guerrero's short term as president was ordering an immediate abolition of slavery on September 16th of 1829.[8] and emancipation of all slaves. During Guerrero's presidency the Spanish tried to reconquer Mexico however the Spanish failed and were defeated at the Battle of Tampico." -Wikipedia

So, why all the sudden US interest in Africa, what's the angle? In the nutshell, the Asia resurgent, China and a host of other Asian counties need for natural resources. Asia is highly over populated and it current population growth is current rate of growth unsustainable. US interest is clearly not about the African, as evident in its injustice towards Afro-Americans.
