The-cost-of-africas-inferiority-complex

Take Nigeria for example, it is estimated that Nigeria has a population of about 155million with about 56% between the ages of 16-54 years old. Out of these age group women are more than 40million. The details are as follows: Male = 44,296,228 Female = 42,534,542.

Therefore with over 40 million women in Nigeria, if each one of them spends at least $ 1 a week on any of the above items, how much will that be? At least that is $ 40million dollars per week; making it about $150 per month. Mind you this figure just applies to Nigeria only. What about the women across all the 54 African countries combined?

Every day, Korean and Brazilian families thank black women for giving their countries $ 16.4 million dollars each. The low self-esteem of African women is making them very rich and they’re happy about that....

Janko, this is all truth.In fact, very young girls are loaded with nonsence artificial dangerous hairs. A terrible practice.

Its not just African women who feel pressured to conform to a stereotype that is considered attractive. All women, have the same pressure, we as woman are bombarded with airbrushed photos of women, size "0" models....they don't call anorexia the "the white female disease" for nothing.
My sister suffers from bulmea (eats and makes herself sick afterwards).
I use fake tan on my skin because I think I am too pale, and looks unattractive....and I am not alone. Girls using "sunbeds" to make themselves look tanned and risking skin cancer.
Cosmetic surgery, because once you reach that thin size, your scurves dissapear, so the only option for someis to have silicone breasts, now its backside enlargement.
Asian women who do not like the shape of their eyes..the biggest cosmetic opperation in places like korea and japan is "eyelid surgery".

The sexualisation of girls.begins early ..padded bras for very young girl were sold in major stores, and cause uproar at the time.
Music videos where women wear little to nothing, and are seen as sexually available...Rhiana springs to mind.

Then we have the other end of the spectrum, women covering themselves from head to toe so all you can see is a pair of eyes.

Then in history we see the binding of chinese children's feet to make them more attractive.
Women who worse whale bone corsets to make their waists tiny, so much so that it actually did a lot of damage to their spines and internal organs. What about the kayan women who elongate their necks by wearing brass coils around their necks, the first ring placed on the neck when the child is five. Female mutilation.........

kisley thanks. Also your comments are awesome insight of our subconscious self instincts and different social norms of society. However it is interesting to note that these articles if they keep following around Africa would soon stand on its own feet, keeping Pan-African dream alive and realising super power; politically and economically

A URINE POWERED GENERATOR -

created by four girls....Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).


The system works like this:
Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen. The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder. The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas. This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.Along the whole way there are one-way valves for security, but let’s be honest that this is something of an explosive device…

Sam Kodo ... 19, continues with his passion: building robots.

After SAM.10 the humanoid robot created in 2009, Sam Kodo, 19, continues with his passion: building robots. Indeed, he has developed a new robot called Robert I whose characteristic is to move independently along the lines (i.e a path) thanks to sensors that he manufactured himself. The avowed ambition of this young inventor is to create a fully autonomous robot capable, for example, of serving coffee, running up and down the stairs, etc.

Sam uses mostly recycled items to achieve his ends. Robert I, for example, is equipped, among others, with a microcontroller he removed from a toy car and that he had to reprogram.

"they don't call anorexia the "the white female disease" for nothing." Who are "they" ?

"They" are very rude indeed to use such sexist and racial terms.

Africa: Where black is not really beautiful
By Pumza Fihlani
BBC News, Johannesburg


...South Africa is marketed to the world as Mandela's rainbow nation, where everyone is proud of their race and heritage. But for some black South Africans there is such a thing as being too black.

A recent study by the University of Cape Town suggests that one woman in three in South Africa bleaches her skin. The reasons for this are as varied as the cultures in this country but most people say they use skin-lighteners because they want "white skin".

Local musician Nomasonto "Mshoza" Mnisi, now several shades lighter, says her new skin makes her feel more beautiful and confident.

She has been widely criticised in the local media and social networking sites for her appearance but the 30-year-old says skin-bleaching is a personal choice, no different from breast implants or a having nose job....

Thanks KOBO, nice and interesting pictures.

“Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

The “feeling of inferiority” is a process that begins with a conscious choice that is gradually internalized and then falls into the realm of unconsciousness and then becomes an impulse, the obvious. At the stage of undoubtedness our will is not controlled by reason but by external factors and values beyond the individual “free will”. So, a person at this stage of "being" has no “consent”.

Ugandan Scientists Ready to Launch Its First Probe Into Orbit

KAMPALA — The African Space Research Program, based in Uganda, has announced that it is ready to launch its first probe into space.
The small probe, or “observer”, was developed by Chris Nsamba and a team of student volunteers working in Nsamba’s back yard. His organization, the African Space Research Program, is funded entirely by private donations.
Yet Nsamba says that despite the lack of government support, the observer is fully tested and ready to go.
“It’s done. We have already controlled it via GPS (global positioning system). We have already tested it, and it’s working fine. We are just waiting on the Ugandan president to give us clearance to have it launched into space,” Nsamba said.....

BUT


"Nsamba and his team demonstrated their creation for the Ugandan vice president this week, and they are hoping the necessary clearance and funding will follow soon."


Janko,who do you think is giving Nsamba an inferiority complex ?
