We need something like Amazon.com for Africans. Put all the stuff we like in one place, so we'll know where to buy. There aren't a lot of African businesses where I am. I'm like a fly in buttermilk here; in a Yankee State. Couple of cities where there are many Africans; I'm 50 miles from the nearest one and don't travel much. Where are the websites, and I'll purchase. I think all 43 million of us should open an African in America bank account, to which we all contribute so that the "race" can become affluent and stop getting trounced upon by Skeletor. We need to bind together; so that we can stand tall and our brothers can be brothers with pride and money, from us, by us, for us.
You know, Norland .... for about the past six months, I've really been toying with the idea of starting a Black business directory (both online and possibly a restart of the "Black pages" print directory!)
It's an ENORMOUS project .... the level and magnitude of which I just don't have enough time for right now!! But ... I'm trying to get to where I DO have it. 'Cause projects like the one talked about in this article are just ripe for that kind of thing!!
