Bringing the new Africa to life with the power of right belief!
If you are like me, and are challenged by the African dilemma, you would probably have noticed that Africans are not inherently different from others and many indeed have excelled in their different pursuits in life. Yet, as a group, we remain virtually at the bottom of the ladder, any ladder, on the world stage. Edwards Deming, the father of the Quality Movement gives us an insight:
‘Any time the majority of people behave a particular way the majority of the time, the problem is not the people, the problem is in the system’. Our race has not changed much because we have not identified the system at fault. God calls the system problem, ‘wrong belief’.
Africans and peoples of African descent have been so battered in the psyche that we have internalized the ‘wrong belief’ of being ‘less than’. Invariably, we have sought to break the ‘less than’ yoke by all means, including trampling over one another and plundering our collective wealth for self gain. Black lives may matter little to some but sadly even less to some of us too! Black on Black violence is higher than White on Black violence; at least the physical kind. It would seem that we have not cared so much about the collective as we have about self. But there is something bigger than self; community!
