The African who is revolutionizing USA, YES AFRICAN!
Africa is poor, Africa is sick, Africans need to listen to the west Africans and Africa this and that it’s pretty much all we hear from Monday to Monday. Well don’t get me started on how America is nothing more than a country that used daddy’s influence cough cough The UK to get a head start, and furthered it’s ambitions by using African brains through it’s so called visa lotto the “ Diversity Visa” that is designed as an African brain drain to take all our educated people and use them to further their interests.
You can’t accomplish this without using Hollywood to romanticize the notion of the American dream and making it seem like they don’t have 580,466 homeless people. Let’s donate some of our mud huts to them. Sorry if I’m being harsh but the 300 year old country in diapers telling the 3,000 year old elder Ethiopia what to do has gotten me in a certain kind of way this week.
Elon Musk is a name I’m sure 100% of you are familiar with, but 90% of you don’t know he is from my homeland South Africa. Elon Musk is literally the African that went over to America and showed them how it’s done from their space program to their transportation sector. And most of what he is doing are things previously dubbed “impossible” by Americans in the field. Let’s see some of the things he has done.
Credit and Debit cards are antiquated technology relics from the early 70s and no where near where they should be security wise to work in conjunction with the internet where most saw an impossible task Elon saw PayPal, and most Ethiopians know PayPal but don’t understand what it is or why you need it so here is a brief summary. PayPal is a loose change wallet for the internet. Putting your credit card details into sites is a risk as hackers and carders can use your browser cookies to gain access, PayPal allows you to connect your credit card to it and put the money in Paypal and let it handle the transaction rather than your card.
Tesla cars are cool, sexy and good for Earth as they are fully electric and can travel way further than any other electric car that came out at the time of their first appearance into mainstream knowledge. And Elon just had to show us how nerdy he is by naming it Tesla after Nikola Tesla who invented the DC motor. Tesla is worth more than Toyota and makes 1/3 the amount of cars annually.
Now NASA is famous for wasting money and hoaxes but Elon swooped in to save the day with this one, NASA was sending rockets up once and then that was it you needed another one to relaunch. Elon has made it possible that one rocket can be used multiple times saving money and resources. And it’s the first private sector company to surpass NASA with such technology.

Facts About Elon Musk
Elon Reeve Musk was born on June 28, 1971, in Pretoria, South Africa.
At the age of 12, Elon Musk created and sold a video game to a magazine. The space fighting game called ‘Blastar’ was sold to PC and Office Technology magazine for $500. Musk also worked at a gaming start-up called ‘Rocket Science’.
Musk’s earliest venture was the founding of Zip2, a company that provided maps and business directories to newspapers and was later sold to Compaq for $307 million.
Paypal, erstwhile X.com, was what eventually made Musk his fortune. Founded in 1999 , Paypal was then acquired by Ebay for $1.5 billion, of which $165 million was given to Musk in stocks.
In 2002, Musk founded Space Exploration Technologies, better known as SpaceX. Musk was convinced that humanity’s survival depended on its ability to become a multi-planetary species, but current rocket launching technologies were too expensive. This he accomplished with the launch of the Falcon 1 in 2006, the Falcon 9 in 2010 and the Falcon Heavy in 2018.
Because of the lack of funding, Musk had to invest his own money into the development of SpaceX rockets. Currently, the company has a $1.6 billion contract with NASA for resupply missions and eventually ferrying people to and from the International Space Station.
Musk then became a major funder in Tesla Motors, now called Tesla. Largely uninterested in the electric vehicles then, Tesla introduced the Roadster, a car with futuristic looks and a battery with a range of 394 km on a single charge.
