There are so many red flags in this story its unreal. The truth is that many (here and elsewhere) don't really care one way or another about what's going on in Africa (anywhere on the continent). The primary interest only in things that appear to reinforce a stylized and romanticized view of how Black people should approach liberation. The truth of the situation represents a problem to that romanticized view, so its dismissed and things (like the thread title) are repeated.
