Various reasons have been given by diverse people to explain why the black race is below the other races at the different levels of development. Despite a lot of literature proffering many different reasons for this phenomenon, the development gap keeps widening to the disadvantage of the black race. It is either our leaders are not addressing the reasons well enough to provide workable solutions, or the reasons widely accepted by many, are not what we should be concentrating on.This book attempts to look at, and discuss other reasons which are not so widely accepted as the causes of our underdevelopment, and goes on to offer possible solutions for addressing them.The book advocates for a dispassionate and objective mind in discussing these reasons, since some of them are really contentious and highly debatable.Reviews by readers would be very much appreciated, to help us reach some consensus in order to finally effectively address this phenomenon.Long live the Black race, and long live Africa.
