Simply put, you are ignorant and probably racist. Why would white people scam other white people into helping black people? Black countries are poor because they live in places that are hotter and drier, so the average person spends half their day walking to the nearest location of water. So how much time does that leave you to build your society?
White people, since they lived in more hospitable climates, were able to advance their society first. They took advantage of that and decided to take over the rest of the world. Since then, we've been trying as hard as we can to keep the poor countries poor because that increases the power that we have and the ability we have to exploit those countries.
Sending aid in the form of food drops to poor countries does not work, and we know this. If is treating the symptom rather than the problem, basic logic. The only thing we can do over there is to teach them sustainable ways to live in their climates.
So i agree with you that sending aid to other countries as we do now only takes money from us and gives it to dictators, but we do it so that we can stay on top as a country. It is a clever way of making people believe that we're helping others in need, when we are really destroying them.
Read a Noam Chomsky book.
BTW, has anyone noticed that there are more and more threads on this website recently that are completely counterintuitive and generally against the attitude and purpose of this site (to deny ignorance)? This is what makes me think that there's some infiltration and disinfo going on on this site. The number of articles that just make some illogical statement wihtout backing it up at all seems to grow every day.
