HOW TO MAKE A NEGRO christian www.lulu.com/kamau301
On April 15th of 2016, I was invited on the trs blogtalk radio show...ironically entitled Talk Real Solutions. I was to speak on my hot-selling book HOW TO MAKE A NEGRO christian. While the 1st 2 hours went as planned, when the callers came on, the entire talk switched to the stupidity of Afrikan Traditional Spirituality as a whole, the Untruth of Afrikan Spirits and the overemphasis on Science & Technology ONLY for Afrika's future uplift.
While I did as well as I could in a hostile environment, at the end of the day, I personally 1-wasn't given efficient time to explain certain points &/or was just talk over on & 2-feel I didn't fully represent Real Afrikan Spirituality as well as I could. THIS SHOW CORRECTS THAT RECORD, DEFINITIVELY!
I will play some EXCEPTIONALLY DISTURBING clips-PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED. The same energy that was given to me, I shall give most of it back in this proper response on the PROPER actions to ensure a positive & long lasting Afrikan global future

We are pleased to welcome to The Know Show, Wednesday, May 4, 2016, Michael Smith, Diane Wilson Onwuchekwa, and Hizkyas Dufera, from 7-8pm, C.S.T., to discuss, the importance of portable energy sources during challenging times Internationally, locally, and “What the challenge of Energy Poverty MEANS to our World!” You may call in on 347.838.9142, and press 1 to join the conversation or use the attached link.
Energy poverty is lack of access to modern energy services. It refers to the situation of large numbers of people in developing countries whose well-being is negatively affected by very low consumption of energy, use of dirty or polluting fuels, and excessive time spent collecting fuel to meet basic needs. We invite you to Click on the link below to experience how international figures are now bringing attention to energy poverty.
The inventor of small self contained units that bring energy self sufficiency to foreign lands, and to us here at home as well, is, Hizkyas Dufera, founder and CEO of Dufsar Energy LLC. Mr. Dufera hails from Ethiopia originally and is widely recognized in the field of Energy Poverty, as a S.M.E., or Subject Matter Expert in this particular field.
Here at home we remember the devastation from Hurricane Katrina upon New Orleans and the world where lives were lost, people were displaced, and families fractured because of the inability of the local government in conjunction with the Federal Government to move quickly enough to bring light literally and energy sources ultimately to the lower ninth ward. As a result thousands of children were lost and local governments handicapped. Please join us.
Money should stay in your community. Identify busineses that supply goods and services in our every day lives. If we put our money in these businesses it will allow them to grow. Create new businesses through Joint Investments. The Federal Government and Private Banks will only receive money from the African American Communities and give back just less than nothing. We the business owners and consumers have to become vested with each other and create new businesses jointly.
