Challenging blackness – Criticism

This platform is for community activists to constructively criticize each other, vent out their frustrations about the people and communities they are assisting. The objective is to resolve issues that delay community developments.

No armchair critics allowed, defending your positions, refraining from pure armchair criticism but base your criticism on your frustration you are experiencing while trying to make practical and positive contribution to your community. Political intelligentsia failed to show their commitment to the poor by contributing towards their development. People should earn the right to claim to represent the poor; they should have earned their medals by contribution towards community economic development, only then they should have a right to criticise.

Before approving your submission to the topic, the Africanism team will assess your contribution to the development of Azania and only then approve publication of your contribution.

Celebrating Azania – positive and nation builders

Celebrating our own individuals making a difference in communities.

Instead of all out negativity, Azania needs to create positive information flow and celebrate new working relationships. It should have a community of the week, where Azania celebrates communities that have created sustainable projects.

Azanians developed a culture where they did not get excited to read positive and constructive things about themselves. That’s how deeply Azania was psychologically wounded. Instead of celebrating pockets of excellence (granted, in the midst of failures), they would rather focus on those failures and inflict more pain on the wounds. The continent would not solve its problems as long as they view themselves negatively.

Exposing exploitation - Standing up for Azanians – Investigative journalism

The business environment in Azania was not entrepreneurial but it had always been that of exploitation. Capitalism and free trade enable exploitation and poverty to grow. It was the so called free trade, principally, that increased destitution.

Corporate Azania avoids BBBEE as if it was a shameful syndrome that should have been treated by government. They continue with the propaganda that BBBEE had failed. The conveniently highlight a small component of “ownership” as the sign that BBBEE failed. They conveniently ignore the fact that they have full control to implement other components of BBBEE. Even though the majority of BBBEE scorecards were not a true reflection (ratings were overstated) of the black empowerment position of corporates, they still only get full BBBEE points on the Corporate Social Investments (charity).This is an investigative topic that is focused on exposing corporate SA’s fictitious and misleading information about the development of Azanians.  I.e. fictitious BBBEE that corporate SA, fictitious jobs by DFIs, discouraging charity and encouraging enterprise development in communities.

Unlocking Azania – the thinking that is holding Azania Back

This topic is to dispel misperception caused to keep Azanians poor.

Azanian education systems were based on the legacy of economic colonisation, education systems that brainwashed Azanians to get educated to be a good economic slave, make their masters rich. Azanians have been brainwashed into accepting the crumbs that they were being offered.

Azanians have been brain washed to believe that economic growth as it was measured means good news. However, this was illusion, in reality it means the rich were getting richer and the poor were getting poorer.
