    I’m happy to see the focus of this youth. Continue to walk in the footsteps of your ancestors, my son. Everything under the sun was first done by an African since civilisation started with us first. We just don’t get the credit for it and we just assume that what we have now is just acceptable and we don’t ask any questions. African history will reveal that Africans were the inventors but the Europeans had the patent so they claim to be the originators/inventors. We must continue to research so that we can teach our children the greatness of our race as Africans.
    This little brother looks so confident and happy. I trust that the parents will continue to encourage and counsel him about his dreams and aspirations. Great job family and continue the good work!

      You sound just like the Arabs. Despite being pounded into submission by Israel or the US, they claim they are winning the war.

      Africans invented some things a long time ago. Of late, they have done very little. How can you do much wen your government steals the little that you have, and you are forever mired in some kind of war within your country?

      Stop kidding yourself with this self-delusion.

    Cute, real cute. Very aspirational, too. That’s what our children need – something great to aspire to, beyond the narrow-mindedness of most in our nation. Keep your dreams up, little man. Most important work hard and stay focused. Voted the best pic of the year!
