Africa reality check

It’s not a country, it’s a continent

And it’s not poor, hopeless or lacking in initiative

The news media – especially in the US – does a very good job of portraying “Africa” as a disaster
area.

So why is it presented that way?

Well, what do clever thieves do when they want to rape and pillage a place?

They present it as a basketcase that needs their “help.”

The reality is that the continent of Africa is a rich place that has been ripped off mercilessly – usually at the end of the barrel of a gun – for centuries by places like London, Paris, Brussels, and New York.

Here comes Act II.
