Lets Try This Black Agenda Plan

A car is a device that transports persons from Point/A to Point/B. If point B is Self Determination and Freedom, then an appropriate device should be used.

like a good car, which has many parts, all parts must work together as a unit.  A good Black Agenda should be that Car.

 

When there is a Black AGENDA, it will look like this ....

1) There are about 1,200 majority Black Zip codes in America. (meaning African/Americans are make up over 50% of the population)

2) There should be a community owned and operated factory in each of those majority Black zip codes.

3) There should be a community owned and operated Credit Union in each of those Majority Black Zip Codes. (adoption of a chosen crypto-currency should be initiated to end monetary dependency on others)

4) Land acquisition and development for housing, agriculture, and commercial development should be spearheaded from those majority Black Zip codes.

5) Black Education and Training Agenda should be integrated with the development agenda. Demand will dictate skills needed. With emphasis on Building and Construction Trades, Agriculture, Health, and "STEM". (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)

6) Black community residents in Majority Black Zip Codes should be encouraged to devise ideas and action plans on how to improve their communities and what goods and services can and should be provided.

7) There should be community owned and operated Supermarkets in each of the Majority Black Zip Codes. Trading with each other and with the continent of Africa which will translate into REAL PAN-AFRICANISM.

8) Investment in this Black Agenda should be designed to be INCLUSIVE. A system should be designed so that persons with just $1.00 and a good idea can participate.

9) ** Health and Wellness, and Security should never be ignored when engaging in responsible community 
development strategies. A network of Community Clinics in a minimum of 1000 zip codes offers tremendous potential as it relates providing information to network participants on the latest trends in healthcare and improving health and wellness. The potential also exists to create and independent health insurance cooperative if enough people can be inspired to participate.

Good Evening BAIO family,

This Is your brother Jonathan Hill from Tallahassee, Florida. I just want to get an initial gauge for interest in having a meet and greet in Atlanta. I am thinking that this would suffice for the family that is in North and Central Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee as well as anyone wanting to make the trip.  

It is a pleasure to have so many sisters and brothers on the ning site and to finally find solace in knowing that there are actually other Afrikans in the diaspora that think like you in terms of comprehensive Nation building on the continent.

Land, Infrastructure, Nationhood is our mantra and ideology and this will be a great first initial step in developing that Nationhood.

Let me know in the reply if you would like to meet and greet. I can find a hotel/venue or whatever the family wants to do and I think August is a good month, but am open for whatever.

Check out this article which gives approach recommendations for Chinese officials who have been engaged in doing business in such economic zones. I suggest looking into the ‘China-Africa Production Capacity Cooperation Fund’, which the article says was newly created.

Basic Economic Model for a new State

When people ask me about economics,or say that African nations currently cant feed themselves as an excuse to not engage in nationhood,I can only shake my head.Current African nations were built on the colonial model of extraction of raw materials and cash crops to the colonial buyer.Now the crop lets say cocoa used in chocolate is monetized by the host nation and the growers and country get a line of credit set in exchange rates favorable to the industrial buyer nations.This model is because most African nations lack the capital to finance their own projects or their own domestic market to sell to.Nor does the African nations until recently have the branding of finished goods,marketing and promition of value addition on their side.So they tend to sell raw materials and cash crops instead of finished goods.Rwanda and Uganda now are players in the coffee and tea market.Not just selling tea leafs and coffee beans,they are selling roasted coffee packaged around the world.Also creating their own branding by opening their domestic market by invnenting coffee and tea shops in trendy districts in their homeland.This gives them maximun value for their products as they create demand overseas and ship and market products abroad.The old model of foreign companies buying cash crops and taking it to their home mills to process is a thing of the past.As African cities and its middle class grows there will be less need to sell to outsiders first.But instead Building domestic markets as priority.

An Afrikstan will focus on domestic consumption first.Part of building an infrastructure of a new nation is building its domestic distribution channels.Its imports bulk breaking,wholesaling retailing and manufacturing.Domestic consumption as the basis for economic forecast and growth.The model of"Consume what you produce and Produce what you consume",is the model for substainable growth and well being.There is no sense growing something that is not being consumed locally just to sell to a foreign buyer.Being able to produce locally without relying on imports is what keeps the exchange rate and inflation under control.The excess should be exported by local trading companies for the purchase of capital and consumer good the nation needs.These are just some of the things our new nation will focus on to make sure we have a sound industrial economy and growth.

Last week I was honored to be a guest on Search for Uhuru radio show.LIN Land Infrastructure and Nationhood as a concept is finally taking off.No other ideology will work.Infrastructure is about power.Who controls what we see, where we go,the quality of life,our protection,comfort and vitality.Infrastructure and the perfection of infrastructure is 90% of what all governments and policy makers do.The Black race has little or poor infrastructure.In order for you to have infrastructure you need land.A base of operations that you control.On that land building infrastructure and maintaining and expanding and controlling that infrastructure allows for a people to become a community locally and a nation nationally.Poor infrastructure leads to the disfunction of the state.It creates breeches and vulnerabilities.Because we do not live under a common land and infrastructure there is no community.There is no we,there is no us.I stress that we should have a Afrikstan or Afrikan homeland to build this infrastructure so we can have a global pipeline linking Black America to Africa and beyond.This in one generation will solve 80% of the problems we face.So we at the BAIO need people with skills who are ready to build.It wont be easy.As I said in the broadcast there will be challenges,trials and tribulations.Out of which a new nation and civilization will emerge.
