Why i love to empower Nigerians –Dee Dawkins-Haigler, American Politician /Entrepreneur
Dee Dawkins-Haigler is a politician from Georgia, USA. She was a member of Georgia House of Representatives, representing the state’s 91st district from 2009 until 2017. She lives in Atlanta Georgia in the United States of America. She is a woman of many parts, a political journalist, entrepreneur, and loves to empower women all over the world. On September 3, she was one of the guests at the unveiling of Design Fashion Africa (DFA) at Eko Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. Dressed in a lemon blouse and black jean pants, her scintillating shoes attracted the reporter to walk up to her. She spoke passionately about Nigeria, her life trying to touch people’s lives and lots more in this interview.

You look very much like a Nigerian, how long have you been in the US?

All of my life; I was born in the United States. I’m always opportune to go to different places to meet wonderful people. I have been to at least 14 African countries but I haven’t been to Cameroon, I recently found out I have a root in Cameroon. I have been to West Africa, East Africa, and South Africa. I just found out my lineage three months ago. When they said Cameroon, I didn’t know all this while but now I have to make sure I travel to Cameroon to see if I could learn more. But I have been to every place: Rwanda, Liberia, and Botswana.

Why are you in Nigeria?

I was in Delta State to see the development there. Then, I came to Lagos to relax a little bit. I may go to Abuja maybe to see some of my other friends. One of the things I have done in the past is honour Nigerians and Africans in the United States. When I come to Nigeria, I want to see some of them and stay a little bit longer.

Having said that, what do you like about Nigerians?

I love the people. The people are very nice. I love the food, I love the culture. I just love the whole experience of Nigeria richness. I love the vegetation. Usually, I have always flown whenever I’m in Nigeria. But this time, I wanted to ride in a car from Delta State to Lagos. I wanted to see some of the topography, I wanted to see the largeness, and I wanted to see the land and farms. I wanted to see the beauty of Nigeria. I refused to take the airplane; I just entered a car to Lagos. It was quite an experience. Well, I did that but I would never do it again. I would never do that again, never (laughs).

What was your experience on the road?

In America we have the speed limits, we have the one-way and the traffic goes in one direction. This fateful Sunday, everyone was going the same direction, in both sides of the highway. It was another experience, I have never witnessed that in my entire life. I would never do that again. Never, I would just go on the airplane.

What Nigeria food do you like?

I love jollof rice, I love pepper soup, I love suya, and I love the different vegetables. I love Nigerian food.

In America, how do you spend your day?

It depends on what the day is. I have four children; three of them in college. One writes music. He’s a hip-hop artiste. I’m in a lot of women organizations, I empower women. I may go up in the morning and do community service. I may go to the television to do my shows. On other days, I give speeches. Every day is a different day for me in the States. Every day is busy and I help the less privileged women a lot. Even when I come to Nigeria, I have always helped women. We have poverty everywhere. We have poverty in America as well not only in Nigeria. In the United States, we have those who are doing very well and those who don’t do well so much. It’s not as much middle class but we have a lot of people who need our help. Even those who may be middle-class, you find out that sometimes, they need encouragement to open a business. They need encouragement to go to school. There are children who are orphans in the orphanages, they need our help. So, I try to make my life a life of service.

Does your background have anything to do with your service to the less privileged?

The Bible says whatever you do to the least you do it unto him. The Bible talks about feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and visit those who are in prison. I make my life one that would be pleasing in God’s sight. I believe if you give unto others God will give it back to you. The Bible tells us that seek ye first the kingdom of God… This means that you don’t treat anyone like they are bad creation. So everything I have belongs to God.

Let’s talk about your NGO, what is the purpose of founding it?

I have two NGOs. One of them is called Organization of World Leaders and TIME 1000. I bring people around the world to come into the country and help to empower those in needs. What I do is, I bring people together around the world to run and to help empower one of the less privileged. I bring in entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers and bank executives. We come together we, raise money and we go back and empower our community. Other organization that are registered in the US is the Orchids. That NGO and my NGO and World Leaders last three months ago gave menstrual cups to all the girls in South Africa. We assist school children, we have tampons for babies, during the hurricane Wilson flooding, we spent money to assist. The NGO is about professional people who want to help change the world in a positive phase; to stop hunger and eradicate poverty. I go to the United Nations a lot to help stop human trafficking and sex trafficking.

I also use the ample chance to talk about domestic violence, illiteracy, police brutality and rape. I talk about all the things that cause black women to die. I invite people from all over the world to come to Johannesburg and talk in that community, a lot of times, we talk about black boys that have been killed, and they never paid attention to the girl that is black.

You talked about your children, are you a single parent?

I’m married and we have been married for 29 years. We met in college. He is in the military. I have 27 years, 20 years and 18 years old children.

You don’t look it. How do you keep up your figure?

I just walk. I try not to eat too much. I eat Nigerian food all the time.

You seem to be adventurous?

I do like adventure. People tell me that I’m not afraid coming all alone to Nigeria. I came in last Monday. I stayed in Lagos one night, I went to Delta State and stayed in Delta for five days. I traveled to Warri by myself. I’m not afraid. I usually come to Nigeria with at least one Senator or House of Representatives member from the U.S. I bring them so that they can see. Some of them have never been to Africa. But on this trip because I didn’t know how long I’m going to stay I decided to come alone. In 2017, I came in from the US to attend “The Experience”, by Pastor Paul Adefarasin church. I came with another Representative from South Carolina. This is the first time I’m coming to relax, sit down and go to the pool for relaxation.

What is fashion for you?

I like all types of fashion. When I’m with lots of people; businessmen and women , politicians, I have to wear a lot of dresses. I love dresses. I love bright colours.

How do you spend your pastime?

I love music. I love all kinds of music. I love to dance. I love things that make one feel good. I love the beach, I love the water, I like ski diving and I like to read. These are the things that make me feel good. I like to be in the water. I like beach, I like to visit the zoo. I’m very adventurous.

MALCOLM X Speaks–Separation oooo!

October 12, 2019

Face2Face Africa

Read Malcolm X’s 1963 speech he delivered on this day advocating racial separation for African Americans
October 11, 2019 at 11:00 am | HISTORY


Malcolm X — Photo credit: Tullio Saba
On this day in 1963, Malcolm X, who was then a member of the Nation of Islam, addressed an audience at the University of California in Berkeley.

In his speech, he touched on black nationalism, which is a Nation of Islam ideology, as well as racial separatism, explaining why the latter was necessary and crucial in solving the plight of African Americans.

Read a part of the speech below:

How Malcolm X became a serious threat to the U.S. after his Africa visit
Our people in the Negro community are trapped in a vicious cycle of ignorance, poverty, disease, sickness, and death. There seems to be no way out. No way of escape. The wealthy, educated Black bourgeoisie, those uppity Negroes who do escape, never reach back and pull the rest of our people out with them. The Black masses remain trapped in the slums.

And because there seems to be no hope or no other escape, we turn to wine, we turn to whiskey, and we turn to reefers, marijuana, and even to the dreadful needle – heroin, morphine, cocaine, opium – seeking an escape.

Many of us turn to crime, stealing, gambling, prostitution. And some of us are used by the white overlords downtown to push dope in the Negro community among our own people. Unemployment and poverty have forced many of our people into a life of crime. But the real criminal is in the City Hall downtown, in the State House, and in the White House in Washington, D.C. The real criminal is the white liberal, the political hypocrite. And it is these legal crooks who pose as our friends, force us into a life of crime, and then use us to spread the white man’s evil vices in our community among our own people.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that our people are scientifically maneuvered by the white man into a life of poverty. Because we are forced to live in the poorest sections of the city, we attend inferior schools. We have inferior teachers and we get an inferior education. The white power structure downtown makes certain that by the time our people do graduate, we won’t be equipped or qualified for anything but the dirtiest, heaviest, poorest-paying jobs. Jobs that no one else wants.

We are trapped in a vicious cycle of economic, intellectual, social, and political death. Inferior jobs, inferior housing, inferior education which in turn again leads to inferior jobs. We spend a lifetime in this vicious circle. Or in this vicious cycle going in circles. Giving birth to children who see no hope or future but to follow in our miserable footsteps.

So we thank God for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. We who are Muslims saw no way out until we accepted the religion of Islam and the spiritual guidance of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. We saw no solution to our problems. We saw no real leader among our people.

But today the whole world is talking about the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the divine solution he received from the God of our forefathers. Not your God but from the God of our forefathers. Not a temporary solution which will benefit only the hand-picked upper-class Negroes, but a solution divinely designed to solve the plight of the Black masses in this country permanently and forever.

The government does not want our people to listen and understand the solution that God has given the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. The government is against Mr. Muhammad because the government is against our God. In order to trick our people away from God’s true solutions, the government is trying to deceive our people with a false solution, a phony solution, a deceitful solution called token integration. I may add, whenever you get on the bus or the subway or the streetcar and you have to use a token, that token is not the real thing but it is a substitute for the real thing. And wherever you have a token, you have a substitute. And wherever you have token integration, you don’t have anything but a substitute for integration and there’s no real integration anywhere in North America — North, South, East, or West, not even in San Francisco, Oakland, or Berkeley.

Has the government effort to bribe our people with token integration made our plight better; or has it made it worse? When you tried to integrate the white community in search of better housing, the whites there fled to the suburbs. And the community that you thought would be integrated soon deteriorated into another all-Black slum. What happened to the liberal whites? Why did they flee? We thought that they were supposed to be our friends. And why did the neighborhood deteriorate only after our people moved in?

It is the tricky real estate agents posing as white liberal friends who encourage our people to force their way into white communities, and then they themselves sell these integrated houses at such high prices that our people again are forced to take in roomers to offset the high house notes. This creates in the new area the same overcrowded conditions, and the new community soon deteriorates into the same slum conditions from which we thought we had escaped. The only one who has benefited is the white real estate agent who poses as our friend, as a liberal, and who sells us the house in a community destined by his own greedy schemes to become nothing but a high-priced slum area.

Today our people can see that integrated housing has not solved our problems. At best it was only a temporary solution. One in which only the wealthy, hand-picked Negroes found temporary benefit.

After the 1954 Supreme Court desegregation decision, the same thing happened when our people tried to integrate the schools. All the white students disappeared into the suburbs. Now the caliber of what our people thought was to be an integrated school has fallen to the same level of the slum school from which we thought we had escaped. Just as efforts to integrate housing failed miserably, efforts to integrate schools have been an even more miserable failure.

Having failed to get integrated housing and failed to get integrated schools’ now the Negro leaders are demanding integrated jobs. That is they are demanding a certain quota, or percentage, of white people’s jobs.

First the Negro leadership demanded the white man’s house, and the whites vacated their run-down houses for us and built new homes for themselves out in the suburbs. Then the Negro leaders demanded seats for our children in the white man’s schools. The whites evacuated the schools as our children moved in and they built modern schools for themselves in the suburbs. But now the Negro leadership is demanding the white man’s job. Can the whites vacate their jobs like they did their homes and their schools and move to the suburbs and create more jobs ? No. Not without violence and bloodshed. The same white liberals who used to praise our people for their patient nonviolent approach have now become openly impatient and violent themselves in defense of their own jobs. Not only in the South but also in the North. Even here in the Bay Area.

For thirty-three years the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has been warning us that the time would come when the white man would not have enough jobs for himself much less enough jobs for our people. So the present demand of our people for more of the white man’s jobs must lead to violence and bloodshed. It may even lead to a race war – a bloody race war. And it is the government itself that is now pressing the people of this country into a racial blood bath.

But the white man is misjudging the times and he is underestimating the American so-called Negro because we’re living in a new day. Our people are now a new people. That old Uncle Tom-type Negro is dead. Our people have no more fear of anyone, no more fear of anything. We are not afraid to go to jail We are not afraid to give our very life itself. And we’re not afraid to take the lives of those who try to take our lives. We believe in a fair exchange.

We believe in a fair exchange. An eye for an eye. A tooth for a tooth. A head for a head and life for a life. If this is the price of freedom, we won’t hesitate to pay the price.

By trying to oppose the divine solution that God has given to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the American government will actually provoke another Civil War. That is, this government – and especially that present administration in Washington, D.C. — will provoke a civil war among whites by trying to force them to give up their jobs and homes and schools to our people. And our people will provoke a race war by trying to take the white man’s jobs and his schools and his home away from him.

This racial dilemma poses a serious problem for white America. Civil war between whites on the one hand, a race war between the whites and their 20 million ex-slaves on the other hand. And the entire dark world is watching, waiting to see what the American government will do to solve this problem once and for all.

We must have a permanent solution. A temporary solution won’t do. Tokenism will no longer suffice. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has the only permanent solution. Twenty million ex-slaves must be permanently separated from our former slavemaster and placed on some land that we can call our own. Then we can create our own jobs. Control our own economy. Solve our own problems instead of waiting on the American white man to solve our problems for us.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that on our own land we can set up farms, factories, businesses. We can establish our own government and become an independent nation. And once we become separated from the jurisdiction of this white nation, we can then enter into trade and commerce for ourselves with other independent nations. This is the only solution.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad says that in our own land we can establish our own agricultural system. We can grow food to feed our own people. We can raise cattle and use the hides, the leather, and the wool to clothe our people. We can dig the clay from the earth and make bricks to build homes for our people. We can turn the trees into lumber and furnish the homes for our own people.

He says that we can dig the natural resources from the earth once we are in our own land. Land is the basis of all economic security. Land is essential to freedom, justice, and equality. Land is essential to true independence. And the Honorable Elijah Muhammad says we must be separated from the American white man’ returned to our own land where we can live among our own people. This is the only true solution.

For just as the biblical government of Egypt under Pharaoh was against Moses because Moses had been directed by God to separate the Hebrew slaves from Pharaoh and lead them out of the house of bondage to a land of their own, today this modern house of bondage under the authority of the American government opposes this modern Moses. Opposes the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s efforts to separate our people, who have been made slaves here in this country, and lead us to a land of our own.

The government opposes the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s efforts to wake us up, clean us up, and stand us on our own feet so we can follow him out of this house of bondage to our own land where we can live among our own people. Just as the government of biblical Egypt was against the God of the Hebrew slaves, today the American government is against the God of her Negro slaves, the God of our forefathers. And just as that Pharaoh tried to trick the Hebrew slaves into rejecting the offers of salvation from their God by deceiving them with false promises through hired magicians and carefully staged demonstrations like the recent ridiculous march on Washington [the 1963 civil rights march and rally at the Lincoln Memorial], today this government is paying certain elements of the Negro leadership to deceive our people into thinking that we’re going to get accepted soon into the mainstream of American life.

The government is deceiving our people with false promises so we won’t want to return to our own land and people. The government is saying, “Stay here, don’t listen to this Muhammad, we will desegregate the lunch counters and the theaters and the parks and the toilets” – meaning this public accommodation thing where you can sit on a toilet with a white person or in a toilet with a white person.

“We’ll give you more civil rights bills. We won’t give you civil rights, but we’ll give you civil rights bills.” The government promises our people this only to keep you from listening to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and to stop us from waking up. They know that if we listen to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad long enough, we will begin to do our own thinking. He’ll make us see, hear, think, and able to speak for ourselves.

Whenever you become fed up in this country with the white man’s brutality and you get set to take matters in your own hands in order to defend yourself and your people, the same government – and again I repeat, especially that Catholic administration in Washington, D.C. – tries to pacify our people with deceitful promises of tricky civil rights legislation that is never designed to be a true solution to our problem. Civil rights legislation will never solve our problems. The white liberals are nothing but political hypocrites who use our people as political footballs only to get bills passed that will increase their own power.

The present proposed civil rights legislation will give the present administration dictatorial powers and make America a legal police state, but still won’t solve the race problem. The present administration is only using civil rights as a political football to gain more legislation and power for itself. Our people are being used as pawns in the game of power politics by political hypocrites. They don’t want our people to listen to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad because they know he will make them – make us see them as they really are.

So I say in my conclusion, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s message and solution is simple. He says: “Since we are not wanted in this country, let’s pack our bags and go home to our own people, to our own land.” The propaganda of the American government is skillfully designed to make our people think that our people back home don’t want us. Government propagandists tell us constantly, “Africa is a jungle. Africans are savage and backward. They have no modern conveniences and you’re too much like us white folks. How could you live comfortably back there?”

This propaganda is government strategy against the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, realizing that his mission is to teach our people the truth about our own kind, clean us up, and then return us to our own land and unite us with our own people.

The American government turns us against our own kind in order to keep us from making a mass exodus out of this country where we can live at home among our own people.

Therefore, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad says, American propaganda is designed to make us think that no matter how much hell we catch here, we’re still better off in America than we’d be anywhere else. They want us to think we have no place else to go. And many of our so-called intellectuals who pose as our leaders and spokesmen actually believe that we have no place else to go. So their solution to our problem is that we stay here and continue to catch hell from the American white man.

But the only permanent solution is complete separation or some land of our own in a country of our own. All other courses will lead to violence and bloodshed. It will lead to the destruction of America, and it will also lead to the destruction of our people who fall for it. So his message is flee for your lives and save yourselves. And I thank you.

Rwanda continues its exceptional recent history of innovation and development with news that the country has launched a model of electric motorbikes and bicycles.

The bikes are the business of Safi Limited, a local start-up company committed to raising sustainable and efficient solutions to problems of transportation in the East African country.

Both motorbikes and bicycles will be available to be shared by the general public.

The New Times of Rwanda reports that the bikes will have smart locks installed on the tyres.

Users would then have to download a mobile app which they will use to unlock the bicycles from charging docks across Kigali, Rwanda’s capital.

For commuters without smartphones, smart-cards would be issued by the company to access the bikes.

Customers would use means such as mobile money or bank transfers to pay for using the bikes while card users will rely on agents to load their cards.

On his part, the CEO of Safi, Tony Adesina said, “We are here in Rwanda because of the approach we have seen the government taking in reducing the use of fossil fuel (such as the car-free day) as one of the key aspects toward achieving a cleaner environment.”

This innovation comes on the back of Rwanda making headlines as the first country to completely manufacture their own brand of mobile phones.

Pan-African conglomerate Mara Group launched the manufacturing plant Monday, unveiling its first sets of smartphones concurrently – Mara X and Mara Z.

Manufacturers will use Google’s Android operating system, costing $190 and $130 respectively. Mara Group will compete with Samsung, whose cheapest smartphones are believed to cost $54.
