An Apologetic African

If you had read a blog which I had written in 2015, July you would have known that I would have eulogised Dr Umar Johnson to some degree, thankfully my blogs on people dont get read but I am learning since the UK left the European Union how well supported black people are in the UK. 

The piece had as follows:

“So I discuss Dr Umar Johnson, he for me is a genius, maverick and leader, a leader in my opinion and reading is the following:

Honesty

reliability

Communication

Confidence

Commitment

Positivitiy

Intuition

Ability to inspire”

The person in question has some of the qualities of a leader but is not a leader rather a good orator. Lets start with the qualities he doesn’t have, which I have realised over the last year or so. Reliability, honesty, commitment and positivity, starting with reliability, it has been 2/3 years since the crowdfunding campaign started and as yet he hasn’t provided plans or updates, which is well documented. Commitment, this was deemed null and void in his claims to be a pan African after the Brexit vote since he like other black Americans did not care for black people in the UK, just a one way relationship – taking. The other is positivity, which broke the camels back (with me) since he responded to silly argument, which wasn’t that bad and exposed his bad personality.

He has communication as a great orator, ability to inspire as he can motivate or at least energise people with his speeches and is over confident – I.e conceited. I would say that he will build a school but it wont be on the grand scale and questions should be asked as to why he has asked for more money. I have some private thoughts on what might be happening with the money but I will comment further on this at a later point.

The intuition part i suppose is not valid after revisiting this aspect 18 months later Though since brexit I have decided that most Black Americans over 75 have no advice or information for black people around the world and its a lost cause so I’ll look toward Africa and other place where blacks live. He is a genius alright the scam artist type, maverick in regards to his talking rubbish and leader of people who he wins over with his Leo (but no substance) charm.

But being a Capriquarious (Capricorn leaning Aquarious) I apologise for the blog I wrote and will update further on this matter, for those interested.

Black Radio Plays

I find that listening to radio plays has allowed me to hear more historical and everyday content, whilst I am travelling working or just taking it easy.

Many radios I listen to are UK based, and they range from historical events being recreated to things that happen in society everyday.

There are many people who post information have websites and information about black history and black peoples, way of life. I have at times listened to some plays which are based on black lives in the UK and I have learned alot from these as well, as I am able to relate to them. There is a difficulty in the UK in getting these radio plays produced and released as they are through the BBC, who broadcast them on the radio.

If these black people were to make radio plays it could be released through blog talk as many black people who make shows know how to utilise blog talk. It is also cheaper to produce a radio play than a film as you can be inventive in the way in which you make sound effects since all the actors can be in one room despite the different settings which may exist and you can create an atmosphere which can expand the imagination.

Its only a suggestion for those who might know how to use media and have ambitions to make programmes. If you have a lot of knowledge, put it to the test with some friends and create a pilot with that infromation you have.

Our people dont listen to the radio but you wouldnt be looking at everyone just a large proportion of people, who do, I suppose.

Black Reading and Listening Shows

Its been a while since I last blogged on a regular basis, but since the last two blogs on the Brexit and looking at black peoples history, I am asking a question about reading and writing.

So I will ask, rhetorically, do many of you watch Vlogs online more than reading of blogs. I often listen to podcasts but I also where possible read articles and blogs to keep upto date with news.

I find there are many black talking heads who post videos or podcasts, but vary rarley have a article in a publication or write a blog on what they do or topics they are talking about.

The reason, I believe is because black people do not like to read we like to watch at video, though I believe we should also have a literary element as video streaming is beginning to replace TV but this should not be the case as there are some people on these channels who talk for the sake of talking but no one is willing to write down what they are finding out, and some people are less willing to read.

One other thing is people are less willing to listen to podcasts, as they may not identify with listening to some intelligent speech but they should try it as you can listen whilst you are in the car, (in some cases) working and at home. Not everything should be watched, there is also reading and listening too. I hope there are some people who can begin to use these forms too.
