    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    Some of The Africans and African Americans today have the mistaken impression that only a small amount of Freedmen returned to Africa.  Now with the awful tribal wars going on from the Cape to Ciro we see Xenophobic attacks against not just tribal Africans but against children of former enslaved Africans from America. Some one has told them that the are pure blood African and with these Americans coming to Africa now in the 21st century we will pollute their gene pool and take over their country.  One continental African had the nerve to write on Facebook "there is a reason we sold you into slavery". Yes there were several poor excuses that greedy corrupt individuals sold their own race into slavery but I am sure that in the eyes of God Allah none of them will hold water.  The first account of Africans being sold into slavery was the Arab Slave trade. In the 1600's Africans again sold into slavery on the West Coast were sold from the French colonies and began with the Creole of Senegal because they wanted to make sure no children of the White colonizers would rule, another flimsy excuse to steal land and property.  There has never been an account of Slavery being imposed as a way to depose unfit rulers, criminal elements, or cannibalism.

    Light upon Light

    in Religion

    As-Salaam 'alaikum. Welcome to a night of powerful prayer for our dear country Nigeria, the Muslim Ummah, especially Muslim sisters and the entire human race. May we all be protected from all dangers threatening our existence.


    As for the situation in Nig., this is worth reading. The writer is unknown. How did the giant of Africa descend this low in the minds of those who used to respect her so! Never in the history of Nigeria, not even during military rule has our esteem, our pride, as a nation taken such a bashing!: "I have carried out a research about Jonathan's popularity and credibility among world leaders, whose neutrality is unquestionable. Here are some of their views: "Jonathan is running a government that is supervising the syphoning of Nigeria’s resources"-Senator Hilary Clinton "Jonathan’s government is practically not existing and therefore, America should just help Nigerians"-US senator John Maccain. "I do not think the Nigerian president is on the right track. Why would he and his party carry out this massive campaign in Ghana when we all know that their country do not vote online? It is misplaced, if you ask me."-Ghana's President. "I would rather commit suicide than ask the international community to help safeguard my country against militias, our country has a strong army to do the job unlike Nigeria"-Cameroon President “I have never called the United Nations to guard us. Me, Yoweri Museveni to say that I have failed to protect my people and I call on the UN: I would rather hang myself-Uganda president. “It would be a vote of no confidence in our country and citizens if we cannot guarantee our security? What kind of persons would we be?”-Senegal President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe said, "Nigeria was so corrupt that you have to bribe a pilot before he could fly his passenger plane at Nigeria’s airport".

    TRIBUTE TO LEONA BRADY WATSON -- HON. VICTOR O. FRAZER (Extension of Remarks - August 1, 1996) [Page: E1424] --- HON. VICTOR O. FRAZER in the House of Representatives, Wednesday, July 31, 1996


    "Mr. Speaker, Leona Brady Watson was born on the island of St. Croix. At the tender age of 3, she began her education, which involved walking from Estate Two Friends to Frederikdsted where she attended St. Patrick's School. After finishing the third grade, she journeyed to the United States, and completed her formal education there."


    "Upon returning to St. Croix in the late 50's, Mrs. Watson came home with a special yearning for her culture. She spent many years learning about what was a dying art in the Virgin Islands, the art of cariso, from the elders, particularly the ones on the north side of the island and the Frederiksted area. Leona was able to attain and maintain our delicate culture through their stories, soups, and music of days gone by. Leona continues to be honored by various cultural organizations as a tradition bearer for her untiring contribution to the cultural growth of the Virgin Islands, and the knowledge of the history of our beloved homeland."


    "Some of Leona's famed works include: Quoted in 3 published books; actress in the film, The Story of Cariso, nationally acclaimed; performance in numerous stage shows, on island and abroad; participated in the 24th Annual Festival of American Folklife, the Virgin Islands; program sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution and the Virgin Islands."


    "Leona is also a highly respected herbologist who has been asked most recently to participate in cultural exchange between Africa (Senegal), China and Switzerland."
