Spread E.G.P.A

Questions anyone?   The student behind the vision...   Lectures   

E.G.P.A stands for Economic Growth of Pan-Africans. After spending 4 months in Europe in the latter part of 2011, I began to truly submerge myself in all aspects of African studies. In a little over a year and a half, I am done researching and I am ready to take action...In the fall of 2013 I will begin the last year of my "education" at college. With a Bachelor's degree in Health & Human Services in hand, I will be forced into yet another job that has been created to have me work for an organization/company that is most likely run by a non-African. I don’t know about you, but I cannot see myself working a 9-5 until I turn 65 (or 75, the way the economy is looking these days). E.G.P.A is not just the name of this blog; it’s what I would to think of as the evolution of a revolution. I want to do so much work surrounding this living and breathing entity that I believe is still alive in the minds of Africans today. So join in the brainstorming of the movement!

There is a Myth, a False Perception in Popular Media that Black People Have No Money →

rebelbaes:

This is a myth, this is a misconception, a purposefully, intentionally designed false paradigm regarding Black economics.

It is a myth, it could NOT be true, because if it were, fugazi Arabs, Koreans, Chinese, Indians, Mexicans could not come into Black communities, fresh, Fresh, FRESH off the…

"…these Black Elitists are used as puppets to create a false illusion of progress. Whether it be in entertainment, fashion, sports, politics, etc. All of these portrayals and situations are designed to make us feel comfortable and that there isn’t a problem…..when really there is."

WARNING: If you can’t accept criticism, don’t bother viewing.

I hear some black people talking about, “we need our ow money .” How do you print your own money when you’re not even financially responsible handling the money you earn now?

Many don’t take the time to study Economics, the GNP, exchange rates, etc.

"Hidden Colors 3 is currently the #1 documentary on Amazon. I want to send out love, thanks and respect to everyone who went out to the theaters and supported the film this week. We must continue to shatter the lie that the only films Black people will support are hood,ratchet,coon,or slave movies. Also, another reason why Hidden Colors 3 is number one right now is because people can only make pre sale orders. So there are no copies available for bootleggers right now. So people are making legitimate purchases of the film. This is very important. Please do not support any bootleg copies of the film when it comes out. Because we can’t track bootleg sales. And when we try to prove to the industry that there is an audience for intellectual and educational Black films, we don’t have the hard numbers to prove this. And the industry uses the lack of hard numbers and legitimate sales to justify not funding intelligent Black films. #HC3Movie #HiddenColors3" - Tariq Nasheed

Haiti

After being back from my trip to Haiti, I’ve made some profound epiphanies. Mainly those dealing with how I’ve spent my money (in regards to traveling/vacationing). Thousands of dollars have been spent on  the last couple of years and the fact that Haiti had nothing to do with it truly, bothers me. The improvements that are being made on the island are efforts made on behalf of the president and those in government who believe in the spirit and pride of the Haitian people. If your own believe in you, you know that there is no limit to what you can achieve. 

I sincerely believe that Haiti is a full extension of the mother land, Alkebulan. We have adopted so many cultural values and have taken pride in integrating them in our culture. It is a shame that because of our sincerest efforts on preserving an independent & predominantly African way of life, we have been constantly stigmatized and insulted for it.  

As a Haitian American, I see the work that must be done by my peers and I. Yes, there are places around the world that need more assistance than Haiti. However, this post isn’t about waging which place needs more help than others. Haiti needs help, period. There are so many talented, well-off Haitians living abroad that have turned their backs on Haiti…..both financially and culturally. 

We need to start spending our vacations in their resorts, purchasing their clothes, buying their liquor, help developing their schools (mainly so their students stop studying abroad)…the list goes on.  

I basically said all of this to say, don’t abandon where you come from. Support your roots, it made you into the person you are today.
