8 Global Problems The Richest Black People Could Easily Solve

 

After featuring 16 black celebrities whose collective net worth is $10 billion, we thought it would be helpful to highlight several global problems that the money of the richest black people in the world could solve.

 

To make our experiment more exciting, to the initial $10 billion we added the net worth of Aliko Dangote, Mohammed Al-Amoudi, Mike Adenuga, Patrice Motsepe, Isabel dos Santos, Mo Ibrahim and Michael Lee-Chin – all black billionaires and citizens of countries ranging from Nigeria to Jamaica, according to Forbes 2013 list.

 

These 23 super-rich black men and women together have a grand total net worth of $50.1 billion.

 

 

 

Below are eight major problems that their money could solve.

Provide Black College Students in the United States With Full Scholarships

The cost of tuition for every African-American college student would be approximately $19 billion . That means the 23 wealthy black people could provide full scholarships for every black student two times over.

 

[SO THAT IS $19 BILLION DOLLARS THAT COULD BE GOING TO HBCUs]

 Rebuild Haiti

 

After it was completely devastated by a massive earthquake in 2010, analysts estimated that it would cost $14 billion to fully rebuild Haiti’s infrastructure. The 23 richest black people in the world could do this with a little over 25 percent of their collective net worth.

 

Check out the video below on what our money could do for our people.

Solve The Water Crisis In Africa

According to the United Nations, it would cost roughly $9 billion to provide clean and sanitize water for the sub-Saharan African nations, where nearly a billion people lack access to clean water.

The cost to achieve this goal is less than Americans spend on pet food, reports givingwhatwecan.org.

 

 

 

 

richest-black-people-health-care

Provide Basic Nutrition and Medicine to Underprivileged African People

With 450 million people living on less than $1.25 per day, it would cost only $13 billion to provide basic nutrition and health care for the millions of Africans in need, according to the United Nations.

 

 

 

 

richest-black-people-africa

Pay Off A Quarter of All African Debt

It would cost $200 billion to pay off the external debt of every African nation once and for all. The 23 richest black people could pay off 25 percent of that debt. Without huge debts to stagnate them, these countries could use their money to reinvest in building roads, schools, hospitals, factories, farms and other infrastructure.

 

 

 

 

richest-black-people-education

Basic Education For All

Most people living in poverty do not have access to food and water, much less education. But with a cost of just $6 billion according to the United Nations, the richest black people could pay for the world’s poorest people to have basic education more than eight times over. 

 

 

 

 

richest-black-people-african-electricity

Provide Electricity to 15 Percent of Sub-Saharan Africa 

Electricity is a major need in sub-Saharan Africa, and it is estimated that the region will need investments of $300 billion to provide power, according to cnn.com. U.S. President Obama recently pledged $7 billion dollars to the cause, but the richest black people could instantly bring light to 15 percent of Africa.

 

richest-black-people-health-care-america

Eliminate the Health Care Disparity for African-Americans

According to a report from the National Urban League, African-Americans paid an additional $45 billion in health care spending costs last year, more than any other ethnicity in the United States. This disparity is due to the large numbers of African-Americans who don’t have access to affordable healthcare.

The richest black people in the world could pay the money to close that gap and still have $5 billion left over. Closing that gap would not only be a huge relief to the black people who currently foot that bill, but would also help to make the health care system more efficient for our people.

Are scholarships the answer or is that just paying White people to dribble out information?  Why is studying Shakespeare a "well rounded education"?

 

Why not a Black Transnational Reading List?

 

I just ran across this.

But she talks about history, not science and technology.

 

The history of the last 500 years has been a record of who had the technology and who did not.

 

Oprah Winfrey spent $40 million on a school that turn out fewer than 100 students per year.  In 100 years that would be less than 10,000.  $40,000,000 would buy 200,000 computers at $200 per device.  If only 10% of those computers were put to good use that would still be twice as many as that school would produce in a century.

 

The issue would be what to load on the computers.

I'm still trying to figure out how it cost $40Million dollars to educate no more than 100 students per year. 

 

But, as this information shows, there is clearly enough money within African America to ensure the proper and relevant education of all African American children in America, and there is clearly enough money throughout the Black race globally to properly educate all Black people, and pull Black nations out of poverty.

 

I am with you 100% regarding the need for there to be a national recommended reading list as well as a 'transnational' recommended reading list.  I'm wondering if MGM should be approached to at least create a thread on this site where such a list could be started.

Yeah, suggesting mandatory accounting is nothing.  Curious how the rich never suggested it when that would cost them nothing directly.  But everyone knowing how to play would affect the game.  But we have this constant talk about EDUCATION but hardly any mention of exactly what that means beside Black History.

I don't even know if my high school had an accounting course when I was there.  No teachers mentioned it.

“No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them."

 

This quote is EXACTLY why extremists shot all those students in Nigeria just recently,  Education.  They don't want what they call western education to so-call poison the puppet-mentality of the people.  As why there is a HUGE difference between the western and eastern civilizations in terms of what they will allow their populations to know.  It's been like that on the eastern side for THOUSANDS of years.

 

As for Oprah, I agree but also understand why she did it that way. Although America's education system is below the curb, in Africa many countries do not TEACH their "girls."  This savage approach brought by way of Arab slavery.  Yes, Oprah could have put the same amount of money in schools here....but!  If she did or not, the children still have an option to learn where in Africa there is not.  Plus with America's teaching system, it's not really about the money....cuz we have the money.  It is about the quality of teaching...the administration and the method of teaching that is crippling our nation.  And there are more people in this country in poverty or well off that CAN READ compared to those in Africa. And those here in America who are poor but can READ already have the potential to pull themselves up from their boot strings and make a personal success of their life.  In Africa, that's nearly impossible.  She is giving back to her ORIGIN to enable WOMEN there to have the ability to help their own people-since the men are focused on FGM and keeping women down and in control while children are dying in droves.  She is giving the female descendents of mother Africa their POWER back.  That is her gift to her homeland.

 

Having said that, there are still many rich black folks  here who can give and help black children in this country.  But chose to look the other way as always.  They are sooooooo busy running after a fake sense of image [by way of massa] that it has become literatelly impossible for them to see their responsibility to their people-as black people before them SAW and knew their obligations to continue uplifting their culture generation after generation.  Today, we don't have this loyalty anymore.  It's every man...or rapper....or black celebrity...or rich black folk...for HIMSELF/HERSELF.  It is what it is.  Pitiful.  But!. .
