Ghanaian award-winning international musician, Fuse ODG, has called for blacks and Ghanaians to boycott American companies and products in solidarity of George Floyd and as a protest against racism and killing of Blacks in America.
The sad death of George Floyd has not only brought about the global protest against racism in the USA against blacks but also solidarity, a call for unity, an end to racism and also an action for a system change.
The advocates believe that another way racism and the killings of blacks can end is blacks supporting black businesses.
Many believe that Africans spend more on American products than on their African products and one way to empower Africans and blacks is to change the financial situation of black businesses.
Africans have over the centuries been depending on foreign goods to the extent of importing foreign used clothes including underwears.
However, Africans have awoken and taken the mantle during the COVID-19 outbreak to step up and start producing and making quality use of their resources.
Africa has economic strength in terms of resources both natural and human yet has over the years been faced with bad leadership, brain drain and corruption.
The positive mindset to strengthen Africa’s economy will strengthen development and impact on Africans who can have a better live everywhere. This will also lessen the burden on foreign donors and debts on Africans.
