Ed. Alan Cooperman writes:
--Give a starving African a drink, he will thank you and steal whatever else you brought along. --Turn your back and he will take his machete to your neck, white colonialist. --You HAVE and everything he's been told is that's because YOU and YOUR KIND stole it from him and his tribe...
And YES, Mr. Cooperman has been there and seen the over-populated, progressive wasteland which Africa has become, thanks to the self-serving munificence of the global, bleeding-heart left.

Kevin Myers (born 30 March 1947) is an Irish journalist and writer. He writes for the Irish edition of the Sunday Times, having previously been a columnist for the Irish Independent and a former contributor to The Irish Times, where he wrote the "An Irishman's Diary" opinion column several times weekly.

His articles criticize left-wing opinion and the "liberal consensus", sometimes incorporating hyperbole, sarcasm and parody.
This essay appeared in "The Irish Independent:"
AFRICA is giving nothing to anyone outside Africa -- apart from AIDS and new diseases. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilization In Zimbabwe, the Begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us out of Africa, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since the famous Feed The World campaign began in Ethiopia, and in that time Ethiopia's population has grown from 33.5 million to 78+ million today.
So, why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic? There is none. Now they want to move to other countries...

But hey, all that aid makes the donors feel good about themselves, so I suppose it's alright. I just wish they'd limit it to private charities and keep tax dollars out of it.
Not true! Africa gives western liberals great moral certitude and self-righteousness! It gives them the massive narrative of guilt they need to hector and suppress political opponents in their own countries!
and do not forget Africa’s biggest gifts: chattel slavey and Islam ...
Sub-Saharan Africa is the only part of the world that’s still caught in a Malthusian Trap. You improve conditions slightly, you still have the same level of disease and starvation, because the slight improvement leads to a population uptick which takes starvation and disease spread up to the next notch.
Would I be politically incorrect, if I said visiting Africa, is not exactly on my bucket list?
Africa is exporting Africans all over the world, where they bring the African experience to previously non-diversified places.
Would I be politically incorrect if I wished that all the self-righteous rich celebrities who get their feels for callng for the mportation of the violent leeches, had to have every one of them shoved up their rear ends, instead of being able to dump them on the rest of us while they live their lives in splendid isolation from the hoi polloi?
Blame the Eugenic policies of the West.
Global warming is meme used to push population control.
The poverty that exists is either exacerbated by man or directly imposed by man.
By refusing to help to develop the third world and helping them become self-sufficient, we prolong their poverty.
It would be easy to help them develop their own energy sources, food production, and education.
The simple fact is that current policy is eugenic by design to keep the third world from competing for their own natural resources.
After the trillions in “aid” given already, there hasn’t been any improvement. This goes to ask the question of what the aid is supposed to do. Aid is supposed to help someone get over a troubling period, a problem, but it is obvious the problem is the people themselves.
Africa is a continent rich is resources. They need no help.
Tens of thousands of refugees doesn't count?
If you really want to see Africa you need only to go to certain sections of any large US city after sunset and walk around. You'll be introduced to Africa right quick like.
We wus KANGS and $hit.
And NO African won the Boston Marathon today——yaaaaaaayy!!!!!!!!!!
I am sure that is right, but one probably wouldnt make it out alive, so, doing that, is not on my bucket list either.
I think you meant to respond to another post.
