Afrikmall? For more than two years, the good people of Aurora, Colorado have been told this mall is opening, but now it gets christened with the "enterprise zone" tag to ensure it's finished.
So what exactly is this Afrikmall?:
Why in the world does anyone from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, Uganda or Zambia live in Colorado (or for that matter, America)? What type of asset could they be to America, when Americans of African descent represent the greatest liability in this nation?What is Afrikmall?Afrikmall is a place that Africans living in Colorado can call home, providing a range of business services, as well as cultural, community and social opportunities and events. There are many thousands of Africans living in Colorado, from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia, and other African countries.What will Afrikmall offer?Afrikmall will provide the best of African business, entertainment, products, services and cultural experience to the general public. This may include African restaurants and cuisine, a grocery store, a coffee shop, a beauty salon, art shops, clothing retailers and business office space, along with an event center and a cultural center. It is also envisioned that Afrikmall will also house a credit union or bank.
We used to have a country.
Now, we have the promise of Afrikmall, a shopping experience exclusively targeted at the black consumer receiving nearly $200,000 in tax incentives to finish. One needn't be reminded that the same Aurora City Council voting unanimously (with a zeal border-lining on the sexual, normally reserved for a high school sophomore getting to third base for the first time) to provide these tax incentives for an exclusively black enterprise would immediately pass statutes to keep the city from doing business with any consortium daring to do a venture for white people-only...
Euromall wouldn't need tax-incentives to be built, and would generate massive tax revenue for whatever city allowed it to be built, especially if it were for white shoppers only.
But in 2016, we must all clap our hands in unison and cheer on the Afrikmall's progress, even it if is a project exclusively catering to black people and being built solely for improving the black community.
By the way, the mall still isn't open.
What if, instead of being told to celebrate the imaginary achievements of non-whites in America, white people in America were once again free to put all our energy into building a world where our accomplishments become the envy of the world (simultaneously allowing the modern world to take shape and allowing non-whites to enjoy a vastly superior standard of living than the one their own people could provide in the absence of whites)?
What if indeed.
