Africa
Posted 12/24/07
As you all know, Africa has the poorest people in the world. It's rich when it comes to natural resources (Africa has the most in the world), but most of that money never reaches the people. Many African countries are governed by greedy politicians. Also, the continent is being ravaged by diseases such as AIDS and malaria. Why do you think Africa is in such a poor state? Some argue that it's because of politicians. Others argue that it's because unfair trade, and others say that it's because of the "white man." Also, do you think Africa will ever be a continent that holds more-developed countries? If so, how will that happen and how long will it take? I think one of the main steps is education. There are plenty of bright kids born in Africa, but most don't get the opportunity to build their knowledge. Many of the ones that do get that chance migrate to Europe or North America. They start families there, and Africa loses some of its most important resource (I can say this from experience). Volunteer organizations won't save Africa. Africa has to save Africa.

Lol nice thread lets see if the CR community can stay on topic and not get racists *grabs popcorn*. I cant really comment on the subject because I dont know much about Africa but the stereotypes.

Ok people, we all know Africa's poor. Let's make this thoughtful discussion about why it's so poor and how African countries will get out of poverty, if they ever will.

@ n_n303, that's not real, its a fake picture.

Africa will be poor forever unless their leaders stop blaming/hating the white men for their problems and actually start doing something.

Africa's future lies in the hands of China.


hahha yeah

Not all of Africa is like that. Africa is made up of many, many countries with multitude of climate conditions.

You really need to analyze the situation in each country independently. You will come up with completely different reasons and solutions for each.

i don't think so. if the chinese gave a shit about africa they would have put pressure on the sudanese gov.to stop the genocide there. all china does is protect those criminals at the U.N.
