    Today I just want to PRAISE some NEWSWORTHY AFRICAN (CONTINENTAL) ACHIEVEMENT. Then I will break back to the HARD BIASED OPINIONATED NEWS.

    Like EATING RICE in the US...

    Like AFRICAN HISTORY in the US...

    Like to know where some ANCESTORS who helped GET THE NATION hooked on RICE come from...

    Alot of HISTORIANS trace it back to the RICE COASTS of AFRICA especiallly the PEOPLES and COUNTRY of SIERRA LEONE (which SOME of US are DESCENDANTS from)....

    Why is that SIGNIFICANT...

    Because another socalled RICE REVOLUTION from AFRICA is coming from a SIERRE LEONEAN.

    If you come from AFRICA or the AFRICAN DIASPORA you would understand alot of our DISHES have RICE as a PART of the DINING TABLE. Today RICE is under GREAT ASSAULT from GENETIC ENGINEERING and LOW YIELDS due to ENVIRONMENT and MARKET ECONOMIES especially. To have a MAN of AFRICAN DESCENT to help increase or MAINTAIN the HIGH TALK at the DINNERTABLE should be given a SEAT. Just want to say THANKS and he shows the REMARKABLE ABILITIES of a PEOPLE.
