Though ‘The Economists’ reports patchy precautions following Presidency declared state of emergency in these countries, personal testimonies are disclosing their satisfaction at their government’s serious efforts in protecting their citizens.

    Observing the Roles of African Men in Community Building and Developing Healthy

    in Dads and Family

    There is an overarching stereotype about the absence of African men in family and community development. Some claim that African "Black" males have failed to protect their communities while some say African leaders are the ones failing to protect their societies.  Is there some validity is this stereotype?


    However, history portrays Africa as an organized society where males prided themselves in protecting their communities. This character trait dates as far back as pre-colonial days were men were more socio-politically visible than women and in some societies; even though they deferred some of the sociopolitical roles to women. In those societies, women were allowed to make decisions pertaining to women affairs, but in general, men played various roles as councilmen, elders, and as a matter of fact, as those responsible for guarding the living from the forces of evil.


    How do character traits of today's men differ from those of our ancestors? What have we forgotten to remember? Is it good to remember and continue to observe the cultural legacy and behavioral commitments of the ancestors? Is it possible to combine the Afrocentric governance with those of our ancestors? From the look of things, corrupt governments, killings, etc., it appears black leaders have moved too far from the good traditional practices of their ancestors. If this is the case, then who protects black communities? Should those good traditional protective roles be abandoned? Will electoral processes work in black communities, particularly, in Africa? Where do we go from here?

    PEACE TALKS: African Amer­i­cans and Black Immi­grants

    in Radio

    The diversity of African people is defined by their uniqueness, which is one of their most important characteristics as a people. In the US, Black or African American is one category. Together they comprise approximately 14% of the population in the United States. One would expect synergy from the various groups that constitute the Black society in America. This includes Black immigrants from Africa, South America, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and African Americans. Current reality as revealed by pundits and mere public observation show that relating to one another in their respective communities is a common challenge.


    The existing conflicts are both recent and antiquity based myths such as claims that African Americans don't like Black immigrants because they are reaping the benefit of their struggles for freedom with disregard for the experience of slavery while Black immigrants are said to think that African Americans are aloof of the opportunity of their circumstances. Other myths include the Willie Lynch’s effect and conspiracy theory of who might have been responsible for slave trade.
