The late Jamaican Reggae musician, Peter Tosh had, in one of his songs, called for the legalization of marijuana and promised to advertize it. However, I do not think that Jamaica or any other country heeded his eccentric call. The smoking of marijuana, a common practice among Rastafarians, social wastrels and even supposedly decent men and women, is largely condemned owing to its effects on the behaviour and mental state of its consumers. Many cases of lunacy are traceable to it. On Thursday 5th October 2011, the Nigerian press reported a very unsettling suggestion made by Senator Ike Ekweremadu on…
A Look Back at Apple's Iconic Inventor Steve Jobs shaped the world we live in today and was the rare figure who left an imprint as enormous as his outsized reputation. Steve Jobs' legacy won't be limited to his breakthrough products. More important will be that he changed the way we think -- and how we think about something is often the hardest thing to change. This makes Steve's successes all that much more remarkable. Steve expanded our world with technology, but he also showed us that thinking differently is indeed how we can change the world. And for that,…

The Infamous List

Written by
If you want to see just how corrupt the US system really is, go to the blog http://governmentgonewild.org/thelist and check out the US Congress critters in both parties who have increased their wealth during the years 2004-2008. This list also shows their net worth in 2009. Looking at the names you will probably see your own so called representative. I say so called because over the last few years its been clear the people in Washington have not I repeat have not represented our wishes and interests, or the interests of ordinary working folks. If you doubt what I'm saying…

Dangers of North-South dichotomy

Written by
In as much as every Nigerian citizen who meets the constitutional requirements to contest for any position of choice is free to employ any reasonable means to canvass support from fellow compatriots, there is need to respect both inter and intra-party independence and cooperation to move Nigeria forward. The real burning issue of recent in the Nigerian politics is neither the appointment of the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) nor that of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The thing in the whole political quagmire is the north-south dichotomy which has been smuggled into the system. From the onset,…

Hail to the Navy Seal: Osama is Dead! God is Great

Written by
Why not go public with your sarcasm, I mean send it to US officials? Since you seem to be a Rosa Park wannabe you would seem best served if you picked a fight with the US government! Go ahead and overcome the fear that holds down your African soul and makes you tolerate slavery and second class living in the USA, fight openly and courageously and get your ass shipped back to Cameron and there work to develop your looted country rather than be an armchair revolutionary living in the USA, in the white man's world (while decrying his actions).…

The Generic White Man Has Inferior Spiritual Mind

Written by
This essay says that people from Europe tend to be very good in the sciences and technology; that they are so because they see themselves as separated selves housed in bodies, egos, and tend not to see themselves as spiritual beings. It says that because they denied their spiritual selves they tend to feel inadequate and inferior, deny their inferiority and project it to black folks and thereafter see black folks as inferior to them. It concludes that whereas each of us, individual and groups, must do what he does well that all of us must pay attention to both…

Thoughts on the personality of Malcolm X

Written by
I first read Malcolm X while in college, I believe in a sociology class. The professor, a white man, used him to make the point of how a man's life can be turned around when he finds a purpose for living. He said that Malcolm, like most black Americans, was shut out of the American mainstream and lived life on the margins of society, which included criminal behavior. But when Malcolm found a purpose to live for by joining the Nation of Islam he turned his life around and became a model citizen, a man who fought for his race's…

The White Man Has A Need To Degrade Human Beings

Written by
From observing the present and historic activities of white men the author says that they appear inherently deficient in loving behaviors and appear to enjoy degrading people hence are probably sadistic. The essay wonders how to teach white folks love? It speculates that perhaps being loving persons is the only way to model love for other persons; for white folks to become loving they must see and learn from loving persons in their world.   I did not have business that took me to American courts until I was going through divorce hence did not know much about America's jurisprudence.…
The purpose of this piece is to provide a response to Dr. Ozodi Osuji's recent article entitled 'Thoughts on the Personality of Malcolm X'. It is of course written in the spirit of wholesome and positive debate, and in what I believe to be an overarching quest for a positive exchange if ideas and the acquisition of knowledge. It is not intended to serve as a polemic, or, given the esteem to which Malcolm is held by swathes of black and African opinion, an argumentum ad hominem. The aim is to present a counterpoint wherein facts, where they can be…

Africans are back to Slavery to the Americas

Written by
This article says that Americans giving thousands of Africans the opportunity to migrate to America annually is a continuation of Africa's sorry history of exporting her people to other continents while those in Africa live desperate existence from Africans inability to do what they have to do to be like everyone else. WITH THE VISA LOTTO AFRICANS ARE BACK TO SLAVERY TO NORTH AMERICA   I understand that these days the Americans offer Africans with high school or more education the opportunity to compete to obtain a lottery Visa (20, 000 for all Africa?), and that Africans fall all over…
