I'm not surprised. China will do anything to gain power....even marrying. This is not new. It is exactly how Egypt got usurped by the Hyksos-they were from Asia too. You know they were the foreigners who came to the land and deliberately married those in the royal family. Plus it's no secret that Asians...particularly China, Japan, North and South Korea...including countries in south Asia do not have RESPECT for their OWN women. This is a patriarchal culture invading a poor country and layin down its roots [i.e. citizenship and children]. As a matter of fact, that's how south east Asia people are so dark-cuz they had relationships with Africans before. You can see it in Buddha. The original one is black. And I think the reason why it is so well received by the women? Cuz they think they are getting something different than what they experience with the men in their tribe....FGM has only been banned since 1992 or so. The memory of that experience is aspiring to women to seek a new way of life. And Asian man fits the bill since it is also around the same time China entered Uganda.
Yes Uganda men are feeling the threat. Can't really feel sorry for them because of how they treated African women before the ban on FGM. If this arrangement give these women are more quality of life than what they were getting before? I say go for it. Uganda can have its pants in a brunch but the real issue is what is China really doing there and how long they will stay. And are they willing to give up this temporary financial advancement just cuz their women are marrying foreigners. I don't why I feel this is more about male ego than anything else. Cuz these Ugandan men are acting the same way a dog will ignore its "bone" until another dog began to sniff on it....then he wants it. And this is exactly how I see it. And Ugandan women see having something someone wants in exchange for something they want? Is a once in lifetime opportunity. They are grabbing it as they should. But!
I agree, and would add that since African men are selling out Africa like she's a $2.00 whore to any and all comers, African women may as well begin to establish a place for themselves for when all of Africa that is not taken over by America and non-Black Arabs, will be re-colonized by the Chinese.
If African men gave a damn about African women, they wouldn't be so quick to sellout their own nations, especially to races of people who either don't respect Africans, or see Africans as inferior, or are racist toward Africans/Black people.
[I often wonder if the problems of the Black race will be solved if/when Black women band together to solve them all on our own; in Africa, in America, throughout the entire Black diaspora].
