Yes, people get killed in Africa and everywhere else in the world. That's just the savage tendencies of men, worldwide. Someone needs to inform Akon, most of us don't have the provisions to move to Africa and none of us has learned to tread water. By the time most of us pay our bills, lots of us can't afford to pay attention, let alone return "back" to Africa, plus most of us know nothing about African languages or the people. Most of us are Caucasianfied, and that's the truth!!
