The top two-thirds of my post, right above yours, addressed Africa's dubious "leadership."

Gambia's president has recently caused a similar mess as DR Congo.


Quote:
Fifteen hundred young people converged outside the Gambia’s parliament on Tuesday in the first demonstration since the country became a democracy, following the inauguration of president Adama Barrow.

The protesters called for all members of the national assembly to resign for supporting the decision by the disgraced ex-president, Yahya Jammeh, to declare a state of emergency two days before his mandate expired. The move increased the exodus of Gambians fleeing potential conflict, forced tourists to abandon holidays, and brought the country to the brink of civil war...

I don't like the sweeping nature of the post. But enough such African cultures are based on subservience, which is how they were so easily enslaved. Just try that kind of domination on modern Jews, i.e. don't try that one at home.

Unfortunately sub-Saharan African countries (Black) are plagued with an over abundance of selfish, arrogant, prideful men who all want to be the big chief. They obtain power to not make life better for their fellow humans but to enrich themselves and continually feed their lust. Only a few of those countries are not plagued by this. For the majority of these countries, the arrogance and self-interest of their leaders is always a downfall for the whole country. It's like they're pawns of Satan. They always block any real progress from occuring in those countries.

Dude, you're barking up the wrong tree.

The online world mirrors the offline world & this forum attracts those of the globalist plantation collective who are crabs in a bucket & are determined to pull as down with them.

The plantation generations, massah & his slaves & his dependents.

Are you saying the pocket-lining dictators of Africa are a good example of the way of opposing oppression?
