On 19 November 2021, Author Sakhile Sibiya officially launches his social commentary book, Black Man! Are You Stupid? in Soshanguve township. Joining Mr. Sibiya as a keynote speaker is global business mogul Vusi Thembekhwayo, the self-made millionaire has understood the mandate of entrepreneurship and is excelling in business as a black man. True to message of black economics this book is a wake-up call to Black people, addressing the following key issues among others:
Black-self-love - we desperately need to restore our love for ourselves, our race, and our communities.
The fallacies of Black inferiority and White supremacy - our obsessive preference for white over black is sickening, to say the least. From the schools we choose for our children, the churches we attend, the brands we celebrate and promote, all these expose that we believe black to be inferior and white is superior.
The hidden truth of the economic power of Black people in South Africa- did you know that we control in excess of 50% of all expenditures within the economy? Meaning that we are responsible for propelling every other race into an economic paradise while we continue to sink deeper and deeper into economic hell. We also propose grassroots interventions that will initiate a mental revolution that will lead to change in how we behave as Black people. In a race among races, the black race has always lagged behind, in political power, innovation in science and technology, education, and other contests especially the economic race. Born in the wealthiest land yet we remain the poorest. Black Man! Are you Stupid? seeks to persuade the black race to run faster or forever remain a modern-day slave.
“We need to consider ourselves as running a relay race against other races. It is not just about the current generation but also about our children, who will either be advantaged or disadvantaged by our performance in this race”, Sakhile Sibiya.
