About the Book

This book is written to contribute to the existing discussions about race, racism and racial inequality, discussions that have polarized many societies. It debunks some arguments in “Why Nations Fail” and explains causes of African poverty and the future demise of white supremacy. Many other people have presented arguments that race-based prejudiced persons often use skin colour as a signifier of identity and superiority of race. This illusion has become so deeply entrenched that races such as the Caucasian race, the ‘White Man’, have demonized the dark skin, to the extent that they feel there has never been and will never be a match between the varying skin hues, in the sense that no matter how poor a light-skinned person is or how inefficient they are, the light-skinned person is still better than a successful dark-skinned person or coloured boss. Added to that, skin colour has become a significant trait in the western world to determine who gets employed, who gets convicted, and who gets elected.

About the Author

Ing Francis Hinga Lahai was born in Moyamba Sierra Leone, the fifth child of Samuel Saidu Lahai and Fatmata Lahai (nee Dumbuya). He studied Civil Engineering at Nanjing’s South Eastern University in the People’s Republic of China and holds a Bachelor of Engineering. He also has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Agitel Formation, Ivory Coast (Cote D’Ivoire) and a Master of Water, Waste and the Environment from WEDC, Loughborough University in the UK. He is an avid reader and has many other diplomas in Leadership, Customer service and Development. He has been an Elder at several Seventh Day Adventist churches in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire; Makeni, Sierra Leone and is presently the First Elder at the Good News SDA Church in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Ing Lahai’s love for humanity and the search for solutions to Africa’s development spurred him to travel and live in many countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the USA. This triggered the need to pen down his observations on race relations and the ensuing recommendations on how blacks, Asians and whites can all live in a new world without the need to seek to destroy each other in the pursuit of wealth and supremacy. He postulates that the era of global white supremacy is coming to an end with Asian and African emergence in the next fifty years. Chinese super-power status will not have the same social impact as that of the Americans and the British, except drastic action is taken in this regard.
