Reply to "Where Shoes Are A Luxury....."

  I don't know why my computer won't let me post correctly to show the devastating easy to fix foot condition plaguing a good part of Africa.  In fact, this disease derived from Europe where it was known that peasants/surfs did not wear shoes and developed this condition as a normal part of daily life.  This disease was eliminated in Europe during the onset of African slavery-making it among many other diseases Europeans brought to Africa and North America.  BTW  I say this because Africa did fine and the people had scandals to walk in much like the Native American....however when they were snatched from their land.....most times it was without shoes.....and combs.  And if they had shoes and combs on the ship?  They certainty didn't have them once they arrived to the new world.....whether it was in America or in the Americas.  And this is why the westerners?  You know them cowboys vowed to die with their boots on?  Cuz it had a lot to do with where they came from and what they did not have before coming to the new world.  And shoes is one of things.       But!
