As far as our buying/spending power - we, as a people, need to set up a massive campaign
and establish a bank account (somewhere trustworthy, where ever or however that is -
that all "African Americans" MUST contribute to, to aid in the development of Africa.
It can be earmarked for poverty, AIDs, water purification, fighting malaria, setting up a model
community in each region of Africa - or any such project. the $ can be divided equitably among the 6 regions. Like paying tithe to church - we need to pay into an account that we are all committed
to. With accountability - it can be done.

Note: The African Union has divided the continent of Africa into 6 regions - north, south, east,
west, central AND the African Diaspora to herald into existence, a United States of Africa
(Union of African States). A central bank is a foundational vehicle that can be instituted and realized
with the advent of a United Africa. Imagine our account in such a bank. Something like this will foster
responsibility, accountability, direction, focus, self-pride and financial independence. Imagine, too,
the posture of our young folks with a legacy like that to lay claim to. If we care to end saggy pants,
low morals and the loss of another generation, we must raise our standards, up our ante and accomplish what we will with sound, viable, tangible, practical programs and initiatives.
