    But yah know, libs and Bush, yeah they're... like totally similar to European colonialism in Africa.


    South Africa compared to Sub Sahara Africa.

    Big distinction.

    It's kind of hard not to when you're making that kind of comparison.

    There's plenty of blame to go around but the fact of the matter is and when my original point comes from is its very easy to say behind a computer screen

    "oh well it's just their fault, they had X many years to become an advanced economy with a fully fledged medical system"

    When there is a huge amount of factors at play that prevented them from doing so.

    The Liberian and Sierra Leonian people have suffered tremendously over the last few decades and to sit behind a computer screen, while thousands are dying from a horrible disease and go "Well yah shoulda been rich by now yah idiots" is just ****ing absurd.

    Colonialism lifted Africa out of the darkness and without it Africa is going right back where it started, tribalism.
