Those conditions are a result of the country being stripped of all of its resources and being torn apart by European forces. Most of the continent has never recovered. It doesn't necessarily benefit some of the superpowers to empower Africa.

Just like the wealthy here don't want to help the poor. <--- I say that statement with no link to race whatsoever.

This is why nobody takes you two seriously..Africa is a continent not a country. The atrocities you note don't happen in every country in Africa..We don't attribute what happended in Bosnia to every country in Europe do we? But ignorant folk will readily do that and pat themselves on the back for it.

So, as far as you are concerned, it is okay to bash someone, anyone, as long you no specific mention of race is made? The items shown that are supposed to represent Obama were not labeled with race, so why are you so upset about it? Negative comments made about him, as long as race is not mentioned (or about anyone else) are just fine by your standards?

How wonderful you must be

But you DO use long past events to support your beliefs...slavery was/is a global thing,still being practiced in some countries(oddly enough African nations...) but it is the past.

If black people would stop looking for a reason to be insulted things would greatly improve here.

so you know it would have turned out? must be nice to be able to predict the future. who's going to win the world series? I could really use you in vegas. if the wealthy don't want to help the poor, why do so many of them give so much money to charity. even after the government extorts so much by force?

Stripped?
Africa is a treasure chest of natural resources,however it is also a horrible place to try and do business due to the people living there and the society they perpetuate.

LOL...I somehow doubt you have vast knowledge of African nations...

Could you name one black African nation that is stable and without tribal violence and hatred???
