Black mother curses out the entire drug store staff behind the counter over someone mocking her son’s African clothing

*Video has surfaced of a Black mother confronting a white drug store employee who allegedly saw one of her children dressed in a traditional African garment and asked him if he was going trick-or-treating.

The irate mother had her son point out the offender behind the counter. The mother then demands that the employee get the store manager on the phone.

“It’s September! When will he be going trick-or-treating?” the mother asked the employee as she was calling the manager on her cell phone. “Exactly when in September would my son in African garment be going trick-or-treating?”

“I didn’t know what it was,” the employee tried explaining before the mother cut her off and started pacing out of frame.

“Whichever one of yall b**ches think he will be going trick-or-treating in the middle of god d*mn September, all you need to do is ask his mama! …But you sitting in the middle of a black neighborhood and you gon’ see three children dressed beautifully…”

Mom cut herself off and asked the employee’s name as she was handed the phone with the manager on the line. The employee said her name was Sandra.

Once on the phone, the mother said to the manager, “So let me tell you about Sandra’s racist ass,” and began to unload.

“Now I don’t know what the hell y’all do to train these people who work up here, but we live in this neighborhood, we spend money in this neighborhood, and as long as y’all in this neighborhood, you will respect the money that makes sure yo’ ass got a check.”

She continued to Sandra, “Lying racist b**ch. …See y’all don’t understand when Black people act culturally-correct. But you understand when I cuss you the f**k out. You understand this language real quick.”

A Tribute to a Legend the Late President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings

Jerry Rawlings (1947 – 2020)

*In 1994, Elizabeth, Sia, Sia, Yaba, of the Yaba TV Show had very rare one-on-one interview with the former President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings.

Her most pressing question was about dual citizenship, “Will African-Americans who return to the Ghana” have the possibility of dual citizenship. His response was “I don’t see why dual citizenship would be denied to African-Americans who want to integrate with their roots.”

JJ Rawlings was born on June 22, 1947 in Accra, Ghana.  He was a highly respected military officer and politician who has contributed largely to the return of Ghana’s national pride which the current President echoes to the family. His first daughter remembers him as a man who live a normal and private life.  She said her father choice for the family to live outside the castle to experience a life filled with love, justice and compassion for others.

The following year, in 1995 JJ Rawlings made a visit to Los Angeles, California. There was a  dinner held for him at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills where the late superstar Michael Jackson, late Isaac Hayes, the legendary Stevie Wonder and many others came to honor him. Four years later in 1999, the former late President returned to the U.S, this time to Washington DC for the passing of the Right of Abode Law.  Seven years stood between the initial thoughts of dual citizenship and the final passing of Law in 2001.

The President who fought for justice, peace and equality also served as the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).  JJ Rawlings laid this foundation upon which others have built upon to provide the very needed human capital, investments potentials and international foreign revenues to Ghana.  During an American Returnee Celebration, President Addo of Ghana stated that “the return of the African Diasporas’ is economically pragmatic for Ghana.”

He is survived by his wife, four children, grandchildren and, especially African-Americans, who share in the Motherland inheritance.  It will continue to be written in gold the legacy he laid and the restoration of the land of Ghana and Africa as a continent. Just as President Addo, stated in his message to the response of his recent death on November 12, 2020, ” A great tree has fallen, and Ghana is poorer for this loss”. Good night JJ Rawlings.

Sia Sia’s cherished interview is just one example of bridging the gap between Africans and African-Americans.  Today, Sia-Sia continues her mission with the Yaba Radio Show on KJLH Radio 102.3 FM every Sunday at 6pm LIVE.

New Google-IFC Report Estimates Africa’s Internet Economy Could be Worth $180 billion by 2025

Published

Google - Africa

e-conomy africa

[LAGOS, NAIROBI, JOHANNESBURG] e-Conomy Africa 2020, a new report released today by Google and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), estimates that Africa’s Internet economy has the potential to reach 5.2% of the continent’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025, contributing nearly $180 billion to its economy. The projected potential contribution could reach $712 billion by 2050.

Driving this growth is a combination of increased access to faster and better quality Internet connectivity, a rapidly expanding urban population, a growing tech talent pool, a vibrant startup ecosystem, and Africa’s commitment to creating the world’s largest single market under the African Continental Free Trade Area.

Currently, Africa is home to 700,000 developers and venture capital funding for startups has increased year-on-year for the past five years, with a record $2.02 billion in equity funding raised in 2019, according to Partech Ventures Africa.

“The digital economy can and should change the course of Africa’s history. This is an opportune moment to tap into the power of the continent’s tech startups for much-needed solutions to increase access to education, healthcare, and finance, and ensure a more resilient recovery, making Africa a world leader in digital innovation and beyond,” said Stephanie von Friedeburg, Interim Managing Director, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of IFC.

Google - Africa

Digital startups in Africa are driving innovation in fast-growing sectors, including fintech, healthtech, media and entertainment, e-commerce, e-mobility, and e-logistics, contributing to Africa’s growing Internet gross domestic product (iGDP) — defined as the Internet’s contribution to the GDP.

“Google and IFC have created this report to highlight the role the digital startup sector is playing and other factors driving the continent’s growth, in order to showcase and support the opportunities the continent presents,” said Google Africa director Nitin Gajria.

An analysis within the report, conducted by Accenture, found that in 2020, the continent’s iGDP may contribute approximately $115 billion to Africa’s $2.554 trillion GDP (4.5% of total GDP). This is up from $99.7 billion (3.9% of total GDP) in 2019, with the potential to grow as the continent’s economies develop.

Investments in infrastructure, consumption of digital services, public and private investment, and new government policies and regulations will play an important role in supporting Africa’s digital growth. The report notes that investment in digital skills will also need to increase in order to help drive technology usage and continue to grow the continent’s talent pool.
