"The article on the black race is a nice thought provoking piece. The suggested solutions are welcome idea. Many of us know that these suggestions and many others will revive black nations but the problem really is are we ready to change? Are we ready to implement these beautiful ideas? I don't know, but my thinking is that probably our makings are different from those of the white people. I mean probably, God did not make us very similar to the whites - I may be wrong. We are always thinking and planning for the present, whereas the westerners in addition are thinking and planning for the future. Sincerely speaking, I cannot see black nations rising up for many years to come. Here in Nigeria, many of us have lost hope. Majority of us are just sleeping and waking up everyday to play, eat, dance and display western technology. I hope one day God will deliver us."
