Well I certainly hope the OP wasnt as dumb as to think he/she was exposig something. Africans have been on the planet longer than any other race of human being yet they choose to do no more than dance and sing and fight.



Are you trying to cause arguments or are you just that racist?

By the way you are part African believe it or not, so I guess you must only dance, sing and fight or are you a different species?

It's beyond unfortunate to see anyone suffer from starvation, but the fact remains that many nations are suffering through their hardest economic times and if you don't look at after your own nation first, you could end up in that same situation... It's a VERY hard line to draw, but here in the United States, there are people starving on a daily basis, on the level of East Africa? No, but it's still going on.

I wish the world was in a better situation where we could take care of our neighbors (on a global scale), but that's just not reality. I do hope a solution is found to help the people of East Africa, it's a horrible situation and I do feel for them all.

People in the UK have been donating loads for the cause since it became a permanent and daily fixture on the news broadcasts and other shows (including regular messages in the ad breaks) several weeks ago.

What I wanna know is, the UK has been giving money to stop this in Africa since the mid 80s with Live Aid, Comic Relief, Children In Need with several billion pounds at the very least raised so how come it's still the same story year in and year out? Where is the money going if people are still living like that?

No its not about race, if we were discussing europe we'd be talking about white people if south america hispanic ppl.

The point is we are talking about africa which is black, they aren't all stupid and I've grown to respect some, but 90% are young morons with no hope being lead by fear blindly by "freedom fighters" so it gets frustrating you see?

But in future ill refer to these africans who eff up their own countries for "freedom" then run away to eff up other countries as morons. Is that acceptable and politically correct enough?

That's exactly what I wanna know as well. We give and give, every single year. Yet, there's never any real improvements, only smaller changes.. But as we all know, that won't help. I guess it definetly is someone behind all these big charity and humane organizations taking huge advantage of our countries' stupidity.

Hmmm. I have read a lot of your posts and it seems that you really love to bash the US. It's funny, when the US helps people, they get bashed. When they don't help, they get bashed.

You can give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, you can teach a man how to fish and they can eat for a lifetime..... Too bad they just don't want to learn!

Cute.

I haven't been on-line here for a number of months and the first thing I click on is a thread with bleeding hearts and new-age Social Darwinists. This thread has provided me with a good giggle; so this is to all the contributors to this thread so far.

Then why dont you read my postings on this thread have they been anti US bashing no it has not been.

And this thread is going beyond biased.

It has brought out the hatred so many members have against each others country.

And I do not want a part of that.

Well done this thread is trully derailed.......

The OP raises awareness and talks about their past contributions and how to engage in helping out. Some pointed out their opinions, and I put mine with respect to those as a way to show support to the OP, who, overall, is doing way more than most of our chatter of 'history,' politics, and attitudes ever does, especially about people and their situations over which we can't pretend to understand yet think we know enough that we can administer judgments and take comfort in the 'let them die' attitudes.

We'd all be humbled by how much each of us can learn from one another. As one poster said, Africa doesn't need the world, but the world needs Africa.

So basically you didn't contribute anything. Except that we should help these poor people.

I agree, but sending food or donating money is pointless.

Take out the governments and teach them. That's the only way.

Yes but if you dont TEACH the NEW whats RIGHT the leaders grow with same intents as last if not worst. It takes more sometimes then just BRUTE FORCE. I see your points tho EYE FOR an EYE for their corruption..

It should be closed for ATS Review in my opinion.
