Many Black people in America do not have a clue about why they feel oppressed or still subjugated by a system of White domination in America and the globe.The answer to this is one word...INFRASTRUCTURE.The Chinese,Japanese,Europeans,and most people have it and the Black race does not.Before I continue I will let you in on a secret.Africa is lacking infrastructure.This means it does not have the capacity to solve basic problems and challenges that should be easy in the modern world.Infrastructure requires still in the age of globalism states with competent governments and bureaucracies that maintain these systems.The more a country advances the more efficient its infrastructure develops.
In Ancient times...Infrastructure meant the difference between being an empire and a power or being conquered and enslaved.All of the great civilizations had well developed trading post,roads,security,storage,communications,laws and treaties.The annexation of territory also meant the control over the infrastructure of the annexed land.Such control meant the people were dependent on the imperial force for the basic things of life.Infrastructure suffered when wars happened or people were forced to uproot.
The Modern Republic...Sought to end the problems of infrastructure by defining a nation to a specific territorial boundary called a state.Inside that state a government of the people would solve the problems of water,sewage,roads,postal,taxes,communications,laws,police,schools ect.The republic also protected its overseas holdings through treaties and diplomacy with other governments.Modern navies were created to protect the maritime infrastructure of Western Nations during the mercantile era.Ships sailed in synchronized order with a manifest backed up by laws of the high seas and prospective governments.Infrastructure also allows for banking and transfer of payments without hassle through a systematic process.This led to the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century and early 19th century.Through infrastructure modern nation states were built.
:the underlying foundation or basic framework (as of a system or organization)
:the permanent installations required for military purposes
:the system of public works of a country, state, or region
:the resources (as personnel, buildings, or equipment) required for an activity
When I opened with the statement that there is no real Black infrastructure on Earth this is what I am saying.Infrastructure allows a state to be totally self sustaining without the help of another country.A state should be able to enforce its own laws and meet out justice in its own courts.A state should be able to feed its own population or trade in equal value food for goods produced in that state.Japan does not grow all of its food but it has a highly developed industrial capacity.It does not produce raw materials but its economy is structured around trade and export.It processes raw materials into finished capital goods to trade for things it needs such as oil,wood,wheat,cotton.Without a government and a system in place its economy would collapse.Nigeria has oil,it has forest,it has gold,it has the richest fishing grounds off its coast but it does not refine oil to gasoline.Nor does it produce enough fish or rice for its huge domestic market.Why is this?For one the railways,roads and electrical grid is in poor condition.Corrupt governments spend the money meant on infrastructure lavishly and projects get abandoned half way.This is the case throughout Africa.Part of having infrastructure is to maintain it.Poor infrastructure cost Africa 200 billion a year in lost productivity.Poor infrastructure is the reason that so many young Africans are risking the high seas to get to Europe and Asia.
The Black Afrikan Infrastructure Organization is a geopolitical advocacy group.Our priority is capacity building by developing the African continent using the best minds of the African diaspora in partnership with host African states.We see a solution to our chronic problems in America by developing Africa.Our focus is on STEM.Along with modern business,industry.IT and cooperation across the Atlantic.
