I think the point is that the Africans need to make much better use of their resources. They could feed the world, provide the majority of commodities, etc. They better get together soon or they will be torn apart by the rest of the developed world.

But African culture isn't very good is it? Do you know what exactly African culture is?
Who are you or who am I for that matter to say that about another culture.

I suggest you research quite a lot of civilised west was invented by blacks, take for example shoes, knife and forks, open heart surgery, the computer and its advancement, and so on. If I were a black doctor I'd save tons and go back to Africa and start a school for doctors. They don't do this however. What I mean is Africa is in a grid lock. And lies spun and so forth. I don't think charities that claim to help Africa actually do. Cos they should be getting a lot of money. But instead they are still suffering. People are not being told the truth as usual. So Africa could easily produce the same level of academics, scientists etc as the west but the power structure doesn't want them to. My great grandad was a normal medical doctor and also a witch doctor , not a voodoo one, but a herbalist . He lived in Africa . It is possible for Africans to keep their tradition and adopt a western one too.
I especially liked your example of the black doctor going back to Africa and starting up a school of doctors. Certainly some do. But it is a very good - because, if you look at many African countries, they have the potential to be regions of big boom, much like the US in the height of railways and building of great cities and whatnot. It would be very empowering.
However, the reality of it is that security is a great issue. Why would I, being born in Europe with such advanced technology and society, desire to go to unstable regions? The truth of the matter is that self-interest does come into play. But of course, if there was some sort of great African consciousness and motivation, where every Black African across the planet thought "strive for the cause", "make Africa great", "ensure the supremacy of the Black African" - then we would see such schools being set up by Western-educated people, much like it occurs in China.
I guess I am being impatient and have impatient ambition. Maybe such things are occurring like China, but on a much slower schedule?
If I could, I would go to Africa and make it great - but there is only so much one man can do. And I prefer to live in a European society... :sigh:
