I’ve issued this challenge here on FR for years.....never any takers.
Show me one nation ruled by blacks that is well-run and prosperous. Just......one. I won’t even go into the violence aspect.
Nation, hell name a city.
Bahamas? And the country is 85% Black.
Okay. Now you’re just being racist. LOL! Hard to believe that a tribal society devolved into.......a tribal society. DOH! But, but, what about the anc and nelson mandela the commie. Can’t they all just get along? Guess not.
Bermuda, one of the highest GDPs in the world, not only has had black premiers in the past (a white one now) but has had a black woman premier in the past. It is exceptionally well run and has been for 40 years.
And it is relatively violence free. Dr. Walter Williams frequently contrasts Bermuda with Jamaica.
I would also say Ivory Coast has been a model country for its first 20 years of independence and flourished. It fell into some difficult economic times after 1980, but has recovered some. Relative low level of violence there.
Why you racist, reactionary, bitter clinger, you should be ashamed of yourself.
So. What. if African nations aren’t “well-run and properous?”
It’s THEIR continent. It was stolen by European colonists... And the history of European rule of Africa, gold mines and farms notwithstanding, is shameful.
Of course they threw off their overlords when the opportunity presented itself. Who wouldn’t?
I don’t understand the logic of Americans who defend theft and subjugation of other people and nations on the grounds that other people can run it better.
It’s the same logic that brought us the Kelo decision: “If we think we can make more money by giving your property to others, we’ll just take it — at gunpoint.”
It’s an argument better framed as socialist/communist versus true republic. You can easily group socialist nations together a the bottom of the barrel. Culture plays a more prevalent role than color. The divide in race is a product of that culture. Americas problem is best defined as a rebellion of a socialist sub culture that has now ascended and is actively destroying the country outright.
While I will be the first to criticise Hellholes like Haiti and Zimbabwe, I nevertheless believe that fair is fair. As someone else already pointed out, the Bahamas qualifies, and for my own example, I will cite Botswana.
While Botswana does indeed still have some problems with poverty (especially in the capital of Gaborone), it is nevertheless considered one of Africa’s rising stars, and has steadily increased its standard of living, and its education rate.
It has also been 100% black-run since its independence (although its first leader Sir Sereste Khama caught a lot of flack from his own people for marrying a white British woman).
Like I said, the place isn’t perfect, but they’re actually attracting foreign investment.
“Show me one nation ruled by blacks that is well-run and prosperous”
In any modern vintage, it has never happened...never will. It might be that in the time of the Queen of Sheba (whom I think was Queen of what we now know as Ethopia) black rule was well run and prosperous.
That’s two....gimme a sec.....I’m thinking OK
OK...I give up
I’ve noticed a lot of freepers mentioning the Bahamas, take the tourist money away and see what happens. On the flip side we have Baltimore, Detroit,Philly, the list goes on and on. We all know who runs these cities. I’m not questioning the intellect, morals or values of black people, just there political maturity, which is obviously lacking.
Nation of Islam.
Ethiopia, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, The Bahamas plus just about all the countries on the West African coast (Atlantic).
not just a country I can’t even find one city run by all blacks which is doing great, Detroit is a prime example but of course pointing this out I must be racist [sigh and rolls eyes]
South Africa and Rhodesia now Zimbabwe used to the the best countries and well run in Africa, the media always moaned about white rule but then when blacks took over and blacks were racist towards whites and taking their lands houses, not allowed jobs in Govt then the left have no problem with that.
I could not careless if someone calls me a racist anymore, I;ve had the race card played on me just the other week off a half black guy who married a white woman , moved south to here from NY state, does not work, walk about in his underpants around the house he rents, and then calls the police when people go by the house he;s renting and looks at it or him.
He;s always looking for trouble, standing there staring at neighbors, the people over the road put their Romney sign up and he got an Obama sign the next day and he was the only one of two in this county saw who had an obama sign, he for Christmas got his black santa’s out in the front yard, has signs saying black power. and then some like him wonder why southerners want race bating, welfare layabouts to stay up north.
He told the cops that people are doing racial harassment because he;s black, married white woman and moved south to here.
Even the cop who came to my house told me he;s going round there to tell him to knock it off and stop wasting police time
