However, and I hate to say it, but ....

My heart CRIES for all of Africa. The most intelligent continent on earth has been reduced to enhumane conditions as a direct result of COLONIALISM and the Islam and Christian crusades. I don't think Africa will be able to pull outta this spiral despair in my lifetime. It is sooooooooooo much. Ethiopia is just one country upon many that is reaping the woes of this tragic historic trail...which is all to common. I pray EVERY DAY....for Mother Africa.

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...

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.
