In case many of you don't know Africa is a CONTINENT not a country, with 53 countries or so, subtract the Arabian countries to the north. you're left with "sub-Saharan African" the one region that gets all the negative attention and what not. and out of those sub countries there are cities such as this Nairobi, Kenya, Africa. It may not seem much but it's more than most of you are accustom to see in the media. i'm not going to lie and say there isn't disease and poverty. But look at Latin America and South East Asia, the people out there aren't exactly doing fine either.

You say this as if there aren't nice places in every other run down nation. Of course the bigger cities (which in most cases are run by high official and big businesses) will look like that. That doesn't mean there isn't a cause of concern for the greater areas that make up the poorest places. And you're absolutely right about all the other poverty-stricken places, they shouldn't be excluded. But the bottom line is that this topic is about Africa. We could just as easily set up topics about poor regions of the world as an entirety, or regionally.

It's amazing how everyone thinks Africa is just filled with poor hungry disease ridden black people. You do realize parts of Africa used to be a british colon and there are TONS of white people living in south africa.

And to whoever said to ask Africa's government to do something...You're joking right? Their government is one of the most corrupt in the world and has been for the better part of 30 years.


But besides that....I don't live in Africa so I don't care what happens to them.


Trevor (OP)

true most people are clouded by these sterotipical situations. cept the last part. we should care about all things in the world.

i think they should just leave them to die(i mean the little tribal ones and the starving ones) and continue to use the ones that have aids for aids research so we can get the cure and charge them for the cure

Ummm .. America is one of the richest nations in the world? It wouldn't hurt much to have some compassion for the less fortunate.

And Wolzen that is just disgusting. I'm really surprised by the lack of compassion and common sense. We should be caring about the wrongs of the world. Not setting them aside. And I'm really disappointed by my fellow American posters .. we have such an ethnocentric nation, one that could give two shits about anyone else. Step up your game, people.

Hey Wolzen, I'm black too, so I'd watch my mouth if I were you. And if that's the approach that you want to take, why not have respective ethnicities exclusively help their nations? We are one world, race is not a real thing. Only a concept used to separate. We're all people, and should help everyone else as good human beings.
