Black African Infrastructre Organization- Should Blacks have their own Nation?

This is a very good video by Blogtalk host/Youtuber Mr Holipsism. He gives a great argument for black people having our own nation. He’s also part of the Black African Infrastructure Organization(BAIO).

This is a video by Kalagenesis. He’s also a member of BAIO. He’s a very intelligent brother. This video he’s speaking about black leadership and buying black. Here’s the link to his radio program:http://www.blogtalkradio.com/kalanation

Here’s a little information about the organization.

We started in 2013 by building core business relationships with strategic partners. We continued to build on these relationships and establish trust, seeing each ally as having a piece of a greater puzzle. The KEY STRATEGY we have always operated under is one that is designed and engineered to create the environment as well as the force (both nudges and pushes) required to make our money go around in a circle within our community; making it “bounce” several times before it leaves. We cannot do that by suggestions and financial education alone. We understand that the main driver behind all of this is our relationships and our behavior. The KEY STRATEGY is individuals supporting businesses (pushing them forward), businesses supporting non-profits (pushing them forward), and non-profits supporting individuals (pushing them forward). Whether we give our energy to these in the form of money or time the result is still the same. There is much talk about how much spending power the Black Community has but this is no comfort until we actually harness and control that spending for ourselves and for the next generation. Our BWS2.0 products (Personal, Business, and Non-Profit) are designed to help provide the financial push while the Black Lion Society provides the Community and social infrastructure to take our economics to the next level.

BWS2.0 is a hybrid. We start with a membership-driven foundation which then helps us create a community of informed and educated and conscious black consumers who can then take part in different financial opportunities whether it is savings, investing, or online shopping. It is important that we build a brand that can we can all recognize and mention in our common everyday conversation. The more we do this, the more interest we can create, the more we can educate, and the more behavior can fall in line with the results we desire. In times past we have had little support from our black business community and vice versa. BWS2.0 is working to change this by creating an engine that helps everyone.

As much as we would like to tell you everything we can only tell you about the systems within the Economic Engine that have matured to the point that we can openly discuss them. While we do have a need for credit unions and other financial institutions we do not wish to confuse anyone with long-term goals and objectives that some people may thing are happening today. What should be the source of the greatest amount of pride is the fact that we are not alone and that the parts for this engine represent a number of different organizations, companies, and individuals just like you who want to collectively build a better tomorrow.

  1. Kushite Prince, thank you for posting this. I listened to both videos. In the first video, Mr. Holipsism made a good point about our true intention on why black people should build their own nation. I think that with the braintrashing caused by white supremacy our default mode may be to outperform our white counterparts in order to PROVE our humanity to them, which by the way will never work because they will not provide that validation.

    As for the second video, Kalagenesis (was he the one stating black lawyers are not hired by firms?) He was right how the employment situation puts black males in a situation where they are dependent on white people and keeps black men in their place. I also believe his analysis of a black middle class was accurate where if everyone was laid off from their government jobs they couldn’t go to the private sector. In addition, I’ve observed that prep schools and charter school serve as a pipeline for a brain drain to occur from the black community. Do these graduates develop their own firms and contribute to other black businesses? My guess is that they go and work for white organizations.

    The other participant in the call was inaccurate to say that black people can go to Singapore and China and not experience white supremacy. I’ve lived in both places. Singapore the Chinese have a lot of opportunities and discriminate against the Malays. China discriminates against black people. Chinese for sure prefer white people to black people. They also believe that dark skin is dirty and ugly; that’s why they bleach their skins.

    In Singapore, out of all my time there, I only knew of a classmate who was black that was there. The black population if there is one, is non-existent. As for myself, I was pegged as Asian in Singapore. People thought I was from Singapore and for the most part thought I was Malay. Some people thought I was Cantonese or Hakka and would speak to me in Chinese and I would respond back, so I don’t know particularly how black people would be treated in Singapore, but I think they would be blocked out of a lot of opportunities since I was and no one even thought I was black.

    • Thanks for the comment Kowaba. You are correct. Many Chinese suffer from anti-blackness. No different than other Asian and Hispanics. They all suffer from low self esteem from living under white supremacy. That’s cool that you lived in China and Singapore. I’m sure that was a unique experience. Why did they think you were Cantonese or Hakka? What’s your nationality? I assumed you were black?lol Or maybe you’re biracial? Help me out here.lol

      • I didn’t realize how confusing my post sounded until after I re-read it. Sorry for the confusion.

        I’ve been told because of the way I look (facial structure, skin color). My brother warned me before I headed over there. I didn’t believe him though. So what a strange experience it was to be perceived as something other than black when I traveled to SE Asia. It felt like the twilight zone.

        I’m American, but all these immigrants here in the States think I’m an immigrant. My mother is Chinese American (she was born and raised in the U.S.); her parents came from Guangzhou province where the Cantonese are from. My father is Afro-Trini (he grew up in Trinidad and didn’t come here until his early to mid twenties).

        I’m over here on the east coast and most people can’t tell I’m mixed unless they are latino. To black people here, most think I’m just a light skin black female. 95% of the time I would say I function as a black person in the states. That’s where those first two paragraphs came from. My observations of what is happening.

        I do have those random moments where I go places and people think I’m with this group of Indian people. One time I went to a gas station and the gas attendant started to speak to me in some Indian dialect. I was so confused. lol. Or when I thought that Asians were not racist to black people because in college the Korean students were really nice to me. I come to find out they thought I was half Korean and half Chinese. Ha! It all boils down to how people treat me as I can tell what they usually peg me as.

      • Thanks a lot sis. Thanks for clearing up the confusion.lol But I see your point though. People do judge you by what you look like. And they treat you according to what race they THINK you belong to. I appreciate the comments.
