I don't think so. Where would that be?

We are indeed to blame as well. Not only have we destroyed and plundered Africa for centuries. Even today there are many Western companies doing business in Africa, but not paying taxes there by means of tax evasion schemes. Africa loses more than a billion dollars every day that way. When you consider the much lower costs and income there, you can imagine how much money a billion dollar a day is in Africa, and what could be done with it, like building and running thousands of schools, healthcare centers, etc.

Uh; IF there was money to be made in Africa, I'd lay some real money the Europeans would STILL have their colonies there in 2014.

I'm getting real sick and tired of hearing how the "white man" did this and that. It's to the point that many Black Africans WANT the racist white people back because good things got done. The African countries have been "free" of Europe for about 50 years now.

Tho I do find it "weird" that Botswana's getting its act together pretty well and it was under English control till the 1960's.

Yes, I know many don't want to be reminded of the truth...

Many countries down there have problems we don't have any idea of in the West. For instance many are within arbitrary borders drawn by Europeans, totally ignoring ethnic differences. In Nigeria there are more than a 100 different ethnic groups, three big religious blocks plus lots of minor religions, etc.

Now, just look at the Ukraine, where there are only two or three ethnic groups and only one religion, still they are having a civil war.

The most successful country at the moment is Ethiopia, but it comes at a price, namely an authoritarian government and an oppressed society, after all, they are emulating China...


I am not saying Africans are completely innocent when it comes to their problems, though.
