"Barack Obama’S Dual Triple Heritage,", Amadu Jacky Kaba Jan 2008

"Barack Obama’S Dual Triple Heritage,", Amadu Jacky Kaba

Amadu Jacky Kaba

Contributing to Ali A. Mazrui’s (1986) Africa’s triple heritage concept, this paper argues that United States Senator Barack Obama from Illinois has a dual triple heritage: (1) race or ethnicity (ethnic origin) and (2) religion. The paper argues that the new positive friendship or partnership between the people of Africa and the people of the United States in the first decade of the 21st century is a contributing factor to the Barack Obama phenomenon. Finally, the paper claims that Barack Obama has the potential to help in uniting: (1) the United States; (2) Africa and the United States ...


"Religion, Immigration And Assimilation: The Hispanic/Latino Population In The United States And The North African/Muslim Population In Europe,", Amadu Jacky Kaba Jan 2008

"Religion, Immigration And Assimilation: The Hispanic/Latino Population In The United States And The North African/Muslim Population In Europe,", Amadu Jacky Kaba

Amadu Jacky Kaba

This paper argues that there are geographic and human (racial makeup) similarities in the emigration of Hispanics/Latinos to the U.S. and that of North Africans/Muslims to Europe. The paper argues, however, that compared to their counterparts in Europe, the Hispanic/Latino population in the U.S. tends to be more assimilated, with shared religious history (Christianity) being a big part of the reason for such assimilation.

"Culture, Economic Progress And Immigration: The Hispanic/Latino Population In The U.S. And The North African/Muslim Population In European Countries,", Amadu Jacky Kaba Jan 2008

"Culture, Economic Progress And Immigration: The Hispanic/Latino Population In The U.S. And The North African/Muslim Population In European Countries,", Amadu Jacky Kaba

Amadu Jacky Kaba

This paper explores the rising populations of Hispanics/Latinos in the United States and of North Africans/Muslims in European countries. It examines the “push” and “pull” factors contributing to the increase in emigration of Hispanics to the U.S. and North Africans/Muslims to Europe. Examining social and economic data for both immigrant groups, the paper argues that due largely to cultural similarities, the Hispanic population in the U.S. tends to be more easily integrated into the mainstream population than the North African/Muslim population in Europe.


"Sex Ratio At Birth And Racial Differences: Why Do Black Women Give Birth To More Females Than Non-Black Women?,", Amadu Jacky Kaba Jan 2008

"Sex Ratio At Birth And Racial Differences: Why Do Black Women Give Birth To More Females Than Non-Black Women?,", Amadu Jacky Kaba

Amadu Jacky Kaba

The two important questions that this paper will attempt to answer are: (1) why is it that regardless of race/ethnicity or geographic location, the sex ratio data at birth show more males than females?; and (2) Why is it that regardless of geographic location compared to other racial/ethnic groups, Black women or Women of sub-Saharan Black African descent tend to give birth to more females? Or to put this question the other way around, compared to Black women, why do non-Black women give birth to more males? (
