I look at the famine in Africa, and honestly, I'm done giving a damn. Why? I think we need to stop helping Africa because they REFUSE to help
themselves. They sit in their mud huts all day and bang out a kid every nine months, and don't make any effort to learn anything that would help
them. They just walk over to the Peace Corps tent 3 times a day and get their free food.
We've been sending them assistance constantly for decades. We send Peace Corps volunteers to teach them how to grow crops, build structures more
advanced than dirt and water, dig wells, domesticate animals, etc. and they STILL cannot take care of themselves. The only conclusion is a complete
unwillingness to learn.

I have absolutely no words to express the bitterness of some people's comments regarding this topic. I am incredibly shock by some of the responses
regarding this issue. I know it's your own opinion so with that I'll say that these are some of the most disgusting and saddening responses I have
yet come across.
People are suffering. Kids are dying. So what if it's Africa? I understand it's happening everywhere. Nobody is saying we should only help Africa!
The OP is simply posting this because for the past year Africa is suffering from its WORST drought in over 60 years!!!!!!!!! which is causing a severe
Famine in Africa
The worst drought in 60 years in the Horn of Africa has sparked a severe food crisis and high malnutrition rates, with parts of Kenya and Somalia
experiencing pre-famine conditions
Grow crops? really? How do you do that when you have NO RAIN let alone with militants harassing the villages day in and day out?
It is sooo easy for you to sit in your comfortable puffy chair sipping on your crystal clear glass of water ignorantly talking about how it's all
their fault that they are suffering and not even knowing the slightest reason behind it.
