I agree. Cuz it's not just an African problem....it's EVERYBODY'S problem. And unfortunatley the propaganda that has spreaded about Africa since the onset of slavery has INTERNATIONALLY caused folks to think that Africans are much like welfare receipents[sp]. Or that they are trying to run games on African Americans when they enter America. Those are just some who were able to get away from the war torn continent...and you really don't know what their story is. And not everyone from Africa...

Unfortunately they have been doing this for a long long time. Now China is on board. I'm not surprised. But this is what having to survive does to those under the hammer of racism and colonialism. Folks are tooooo focused to obtain the basics of living...where they are willing and have been willing to destroy their environment in order to achieve a meal. They have no loyalty to the animals when they cannot find dinner or lunch or even breakfast. They see the investment of their survival...

It was a 30-minute documentary I saw on ...

In it, they interviewed both Chinese and African people ... and basically, the Africans felt slighted - although I found that strange because most admitted that they had not come because they had been offered jobs or a good livelihood ... but just because they...

This is what usually catches my attention. I understand it, and agree but not often for the reasons people may think. We (understandably) look at white supremacy from the perspective of how it manifest against us (i.e. Dr. Fransis's if you're Black get back etc). However, the same thing exist among "people of color" (which is a term typically meant to exclude that people lacking color).

Because the Chinese are not European they get a pass?? They have resource needs as well as economic needs. They as other outsiders see the chance to exploit the people and resources of a politically, economically weak Africa. I just don't understand how African descended people continue to lie in bed with Asians. Especially since we understand how they treat us in the U.S. Time to grow up politically.
