    Welcome to DESTEE.... Oba


    Reparations in a nut shell. Some people have no problem righting a wrong. Everybody benefits in any solution of this sort. The people get farmers willing to produce and grow goods, they need. And the famers are given the land they claim was taken unjustly. I like a happy ending.

    Now during the thirty's and long before that blacks had frams and land. In the U.S.A. A controversial land redistribution programme.
    Took place here. It would be nice if the world righted all the wrongs. NOW!


    NOW WHEN WILL A SUPER POWER SEE THE TRUTH, AND BENEFIT? OF DOING THE RIGHT THING. WE ALL BENEFIT. WE ALL GROW. THEY ARE TIED TO THE CHAINS THEY GAVE US AT BIRTH. YOU CAN'T GROW WE CAN'T GROW. KISS ME MOTHER NATURE.

    The farmers happen to be white. They also happen to be rich and well educated in large-scale farming and probably have connections to markets that small-scale local farmers do not.

    Because of the on-going legacy of colonialism in Africa done by the Europeans, the large-scale business people are disproportionately white.

    In addition to inviting these folks to set up their enterprises in Nigeria, they should also be required to accept native farmers as interns who could observe and learn about the ins and outs of managing a large-scale farm.

    Of course, this is a short-term solution. Small-scale farming should be encouraged world-wide. Its beneficial effects on health and the environment are well known and could lead to full employment, full stomachs and more local control of water supplies, pesticide use, etc.

    yes but I seriously question if they will live up to the hopes of their purpose. Before mugabe kicked them out, the country wasnt doing much better, but we'll see how it turns out here and in angola.
