If it is building bigger churches, no other race surpasses ‘Black/African’ folks in Africa...

Despite many years of separation from the continent, the way Blacks and Africans do things are alarmingly similar. They will build a bigger church but when it comes to doing something to help advance their community, they will have their hands out to others.

Without a doubt, the marketing zing of Pre can only go so far; where the Pre rubber meets the road, the superior capacities and interface preeminence and overwhelming assortments of software options make the iPhone a much better choice.
