(America): When Slots For Illegals Are Eliminated, America Will Have More Slots For the World's Best, Brightest, and Exceptionally Talented To Immigrate and Renew America.

How should America treat it's illegal immigrants? The Biden pick for Health and Human Services nominee wants illegals to be given Medicaid.

And this is what we think is wrong with American immigration, and one that should be overhauled. Australia for instance, processes Illegals, assylum seekers and refugees in the far off island of Papua New Guinea.

In America meanwhile, illegals are being processed at the border patrol, and it gets even worse, in the Biden administration, assylum seekers will be allowed to travel to the United States as they await the results of their assylum application.

This Biden administration move in championing for illegals, assylum seekers, and refugees has made immigrant caravans all the way from Africa, Honduras, and Haiti begin to travel by foot to the United States border.

When there are so many illegals in America, the burden will be on the American taxpayer to provide them with food stamps and unemployment benefits. Besides, illegal immigrants decrease the slots for the legal immigrants that the United States truly needs. It's why we think that immigration should be overhauled, to increase slots for the best and brightest, and those with exceptional talents that will prepare America for the next phase of growth in the industrial internet of things (IIoT), smart hardware, Fintech, carbon materials, and such fancied fields, which America is struggling to hold on to the global lead.

China and India alone produce two Thirds of the world's PhDs, China has two million engineers. That's what's at stake for America. When the illegals are eliminated, the slots for H1-B Visas, how the most talented foreign workers will be increased ten fold, of course with safeguards so that large businesses cannot use the H1-B Visa as an excuse for paying poor American workers low salaries.

To be black and be a capitalist, and a Republican, is not an anomaly. An incompatibility sort of.

We wish golfing legend Tiger Woods quick recovery in the Los Angeles accident. But here is our proposition regarding the incident.

The next chapter in the American Civil rights movement is the availing of business capital and entrepreneurship to blacks and Latinos. African Americans don't have have to make wealth in their " traditional strong fields" like sports and entertainment".

They can make wealth solving the toughest challenges that plague America and the world. They can wildly be successful creative genius entrepreneurs. The job of diversity and inclusion is supposed to make blacks be included in the former white spaces in powerful jobs, but blacks shouldn't be a tick in the box. An affirmative action hire or elite college admittee. A racial justice issue.

Moreover, the smartest blacks now don't attend historically black Colleges like Howard or Morehouse but now attend the Ivy League and Uber Private colleges like Harvard, Duke, and Yale, then go on to work in Wall Street, representing a brain drain on the African American community when a struggling black business would have needed their talents.

And since small businesses are the primary employers, it means all this black talent that is being lost to Wall Street and Silicon Valley as a diversity and inclusion issue, an affirmative action hire is going to waste in that the kith and kin these bright black youngsters left behind have no businesses to hire them.

And I know Booker T Washington, a Republican by ideology, the first African American to visit the White House, was shamed for acting white when he said that rather than confronting white supremacists directly, blacks should aim for great careers and entrepreneurship. But nothing could be further from the truth.

And another African American leader, Marcus Garvey, said blacks fail because they don't have a capitalistic system that support them. He was wealth shamed for having a publishing company, media house, real estate and a ship which he hoped would transport all black people back to Africa.

But essentially, to be black and to be capitalist shouldn't be an opposite dichotomy. Likewise, to be black and be Republican should also likewise not be an incompatibility. Because where has the freebies of the Democrats taken blacks? They are at the exact same place where the slave emancipation proclamation left them. Someone said the biggest threat of a black is a white liberal, because they act so sweet without really meaning it, and it couldn't be further from the truth.

Social Byte: Is Colorism deep among people of colour?

The simple definition of colorism is that it's where members with a lighter skin among people of color are treated better than their darker skin colleagues of the same race.

Although it's most prevalent in the black race, it's not confined to it alone. An advert in a French billboard paints a successful French parent as one where a successful black male is married to a biracial or light skinned black.

In India, you wouldn't know that half their population is darker skinned from watching Indian Bollywood movies as all the acting gigs go to the light skinned Indians and not the untouchable dark skinned dalites. 

This has of course spawned a lucrative bleaching creams as blacks, especially females want to be light skinned and upgrade their social status. 

Does Writing Really Pay That Much. Can it Be a Full Time Career, Especially in Africa.

The joke is that one of the ways for you to die a poor man or woman for that matter is to take up writing as a full time career. As a weekly columnist for the Star Newspaper in Kenya, the third in the market daily, I got paid $30 per weekly column of 350 words. Granted, one could say that pay is too much for just 350 words. But it is the quality that matters, not the word count. And I knew I had worked on my craft well, and so I felt shortchanged.

Again, I wrote a 12 page educational advertorial pull out for the same Star Newspaper Kenya, I got paid $100, even as they made $50,000 from the same pull out in advertisements.

Coincidentally, one of their former radio girls come come Group Marketing Manager responsible for those advertisements in my pull out is also dabbles up as a motivational speaker and goes around telling young impressionable girls that you have the same 24 hours as me, or as Bill Gates. So, why doesn't she start with paying people their fair dues first?

I had done much research and knew that as a weekly Columnist for the Telegraph, Boris Johnson, the current Prime Minister of Britain, was getting $250,000 a year pay, that is $5,000 a week, just for scribbling a few quality words a week.

I also knew of a weekly technology columnist in The Wall Street Journal that got paid a million dollars a year for a weekly column, that is $20,000. I'm interested in that especially because I did Mechanical Engineering for my Bachelors Degree.

So, why doesn't writing pay in Africa. The reason is simply we haven't professionalised the creative scene, that is writers, singers, actors, et al. It is still a buyers market. They set the price. We follow along. And that needs to change if our kind is going to take up writing as a full time career rather than a side hustle.

Why is the second born child of Jacob always winning against the first born child of Esau? Or perhaps more succinctly, is it true that behind every great fortune is a great crime.

 



Before Beyonce, there was Aaliyah. An actor, a singer, a songwriter all rolled into one. She would have put the Sasha Fierce of Beyonce to shame.

 Before Rihanna there were the two girls she used to perform with. Before Bill Gates, there was George the software designer cum doctor who sold Bill Gates the original operating sofware system for $50,000, and which has now made Bill Gates $200 billion and counting. The one who lazily goes to the audition at the urging of her friend is the one who wins the audition to become the radio and TV presenter.

Before Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, there was the Harvard upperclassmen who asked him to design the a website that could connect Harvard students, Facemash. Or even Harvard itself, the student who gets admitted is the one that is the least invested in the whole Harvard admissions process. Doesn't even show up at the Harvard admission officers talk.


Or, the one rugged soccer player in the estate neighbourhood who doesn't show up at the practice sessions and is in the bad books of the coach is the one who ends up at Arsenal or Manchester United or Barcelona.

Or closer home the child that has the soul of the parents, the child that will most likely help the parents out of their murky situation is the one who gets a life threatening disease, never gets a job ten years post graduation while the other kids less invested in their parents are the ones who get that pricey and cushy PWC job and proceeds to answer to the call of the city, and totally forgets how her parents struggled through hell to put them where they are.

Before Jeff Bezos, there was his wife who helped him code his first Amazon website a book selling platform which now is the largest online retailer, making Jeff Bezos a whooping $210 billion and counting towards multi trillion dollars personal fortune every single second.

 Before America federation, there was Russia Federation. Before white nobility, there was black kemet nobility.

Why is it always that the first in the field loses out to the second late come. The original idea initiator who gives way to the modified copy cat? Or even at the celestial level, the moon a recent entrant into the milky way, is stealing the energy of the sun and getting brighter everyday and perhaps all this displacements in the world we are having, genius poor, billionare fool, good employee, bad boss, good husband bad wife, all these displacements when summed up across everyone on the planet, across every industry adds up to $500 trillions, the reported richest family in the world, the kind of people who arrogantly say, "Bill Gates is a beggar to us", "Give me control of money supply of a country and I care not who it's leaders are". 

And all these $500 trillion dollars both in physical gold as well as in life force energies is shipped back to the moon to give to more power to the moon beings being mapped from the ocean floor and in effect, steal from the children of Ra-royalty. The sun. The battle between good and evil. The battle to breath life into the innanimate. 

To which I would also put it to them, that in terms of the mysteries of the universe, the 33rd degree Freemason, the most enlightened Illuminati, the darkest member of the darkest secret society Skull &Bones, in terms of the mysteries of the universe all these are zygots just forming in the womb, haven't even become a foetus, much less been born or learnt how to talk.
