"We do not want GM (genetically modified) foods and our hope is that all of us can continue to produce non-GM foods," Zambian Agriculture Minister Mundia Sikatana told Reuters in Lusaka.

I've heard that theory before, EP, and no doubt some Black neocons do fall into that category. However, I do try to give people te benefit of the doubt. It's unlikely that all or even most of them actually believe their are inferior, even subconsciously, I think. Honestly, I see no reason why a Black neocon wouldn't jump on the chance to create a self-sufficient kibbutz in Africa. It gives them the chance to put all of their rhetoric into action, which would serve as the biggest STFU to all...

Re: Uganda Worried About The Number Of Chinese Men Marrying Ugandan Women

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.

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...
