Elephant meets Dragon.U.S. companies still think they can compete in Africa without African Americans

The world has seen what the Kalagenesis has been saying for three years.That China is now the dominant economic influence in Africa.A lot of this to be frank, has to do with race.The Chinese are using the bad blood left over from centuries of slavery and the period of European colonialism in Africa.China had a long history with Africa that goes back to the Tang and Yuan Dynasties.Chinese pottery,porcelain,art,sculpture,silk, ect was traded across overland trade routes through the Middle East,to Africa and across the Sahara Desert to West Africa.Also the trade routes across the Indian Ocean to the Swahili States along the East African coast.African gold,pottery,animals,textiles,ect were traded to China.China never took African captives to its shores the way Arabs and Europeans did.In other words most Africans view China as a friend.China has taken a no get involved in the internal affairs of Africa.This token of respect is what the West cannot deal with.Although their are human rights abuses in Africa.It is better than the years right after so called independence.China has to answer the charge that it is doing this for its own self interest.Africans are getting their countries developed.Something Western Nations failed to achieve after a half century of trying.
American companies are sneaking into Africa
Would not it be easier to openly acknowledge you have a large African population and use this to gain an edge in Africa?It seems that not only are African Americans locked out of the milk and honey of America,but the same selfish racist forces don't want us to enjoy the benefit of the Africa century.We have a feminized Black leadership who think begging for crumbs from a White economy is better than making their own way and economy like Marcus Garvey said.We have to create our own dialogue with African leaders and the 800lb Gorilla in the room is an idea for the creation of an African American state.Such a state would serve as a corridor and the gateway to Africa.A place where African Americans can build relations with over a billion people on the continent outside the confines of the US-Africa relationship.African Americans are restricted in their dealings with Africa.The Black community should be able to engage China,Japan,Singapore,Venesuela,Cuba,US,ect.Also the African American community should be able to be part of the African Union.This is the time and it is time to expose media outlets who keep putting a negative image of Africa out there.

2010 U.S. – Africa Infrastructure Conference

The Corporate Council on Africa’s fourth U.S. – Africa Infrastructure Conference will be held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C., from April 27 – 29, 2010.

This year’s conference, which is themed “Building Dynamic Growth in Africa,” focuses on key economic sectors in Africa, including information and communication technology, alternative energy, and human security. The effects of climate change on Africa are also a focus, along with available instruments for project finance.

Immediately following the World Bank spring 2010 meetings, the conference brings together senior U.S. and African private sector and government officials; key decision makers from leading U.S. infrastructure companies; financial institutions; and international organizations with a vested interest in infrastructure investment and growth on the continent.

The conference presents attendees with the latest infrastructure trade and investment opportunities, funding sources, power and ICT projects, financing, and national security in Africa, while providing a space for potential business partner formation through an array of networking opportunities.

The Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) is the leading resource for U.S. companies engaged in doing business on the African continent. CCA programs, including the 2010 U.S.-Africa Infrastructure Conference, help the public quickly understand the African business climate and identify specific trade and investment opportunities.
