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.
