    Listen. Im not in Africa, but I dont have to be.

    Nobody will do anything for Africa, because nobody cares.

    This is saddening, seeing how they make the HIV crisis in Africa into a

    circus with Bono and Brad Pitt and every other moron with enough

    cash to travel to Africa frequently.

    Bush and Blair "discuss" funds for Africa blah blah blah. This is all bullshit. I am tired of being hyped up and lied to about what "is being discussed" or "scheduled to be accomplished". Its bullshit, if your not going to help, dont front. And your not helping until things fucking change. And all this shit on the news confirms my thoughts, nothing is happening.

    By the way did Bush ever reflect on Sudan and the amount of genocide? Or the wars going on in the continent period?

    Fuck you Bush, and anyone ignorant enough not to care. Who cares about the Africans? Well, this is America right, it aint Africa, so people dont care. And you wonder why blacks act how they act. Even our own people hate on us so thats double the burden.

    Imagine how things would be if we had a leader such as Malcolm X or Huey Newton in todays world. Someone who really cared for his people. Now we have people like 50 cent and Puff among other numbnuts attempting to convince us to vote and be political. Thats a formula for disaster. Yeah right puff like you really give a fuck about who is in office, your rich.

    It is disturbing actually, the people who kids and adults also look up to are so fucking ignorant, uninformed, and whatever other negative word you would like to use(which makes the admirer the same way, gradually or instantly), that those same people dont know what it is to elevate yourself and be a better person, a model citizen with purpose and solid, rational beliefs. Everyone wants to be a thug, which will benefit you in no way at all..

    fuck the street because the street doesnt love you, there is a whole different side of life that these people dont even choose to realize. A person like Huey or Malcolm would make people understand.

    If you dont understand me, you just dont understand me. My position is rock solid, and not only do I simply not like what I see,I know it is wrong on all aspects of the totem pole. And Im not completely innocent, Ive had my share of regretful situations, but as a person I have matured.


    TRUE STORY.

    Furthermore, many of my people are ignorant to the benefits of education and I realize a thread about it in 12oz aint helping but fuck it nobody else on this site says it so I'll be the nigga to expose niggas. because i learned.

    understand, you are not born to be a rapper. you are not dame dash or puff or jay z. stop fooling yourself, just go to school. be smart. all you have to do is use your brain, i guess that is too hard to ask. you cant smoke weed, drink, hustle, pop cannons and fuck bitches raw ALL your life. thats not what shit is about, nigga.

    wake up, all you hear niggaz saying is, whiteboys got this because hes white. no. a majority of the whiteboys ive encountered went to school like the rest of their friends. its simply how you do it in america, you go to school, unless you are lucky, most are not. dont be outrageous.

    nigga.

    if celebreties wanna get in on causes, so the fuck what?

    at least someone is paying attention, right?!?!
    fuckin A.
    oprah has done quite a bit for the african health crisis
    as has bill gates

    i know some people have a hard time giving any credit to the rich and famous
    but i say good for them, at least people are paying money and attention to the problem.

    if it takes celebrities to bring these crisis to the attention of the world, so be it

    after all, you are not going to africa on some mission.
    one only has to google "volunteer in africa" to get plenty of oppurtunities.

    I am pretty liberal, and I do indeed think we need too do much more to not only assist in life threatening issues such as AIDS and starvation but also in fostering stronger governments. Damn though , they're fucked and I give up.

    The governments there are corrupt or crazy as hell (my favorite is Mugabe), the people are all about civil strife and war over whatever. Wars there is about machettes and raping 10 year olds more than I've read anywhere else. Education is mostly private through out Africa, which we could help with I guess, but it leads to a lot of not so brainy people who live in squalor and react to this very ignorance with either fear or easily manipulated violence.

    Look at Zimbabwe, white owners controled the land which I agree is fucked up over all. Mugabe wins a revolution and takes power promising to hand over the land to the people - sounds great! What instead happens is that his troops get these huge chunks of plush farm land they don't know how to cultevate and the country is always on the verge of starvation. Now he is destroying slum neighbrohoods and other politically targeted property, burning them down and bull dozing them in an attempt to move people back into the country and remove "rubbish" meaning poor people or white people - wtf and ytf?

    And now, lets talk rape. I mean South Africa has ridiculous rapes, especially of children. The above articles speak to that, the number of children under 11 raped is half of ALL rapes in the U.S while the total rapes are 3 times the ammount here. Remember those infants getting raped to cure AIDS? Check those links...

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/artic...4-2004Sep9.html
    ^^^
    Last but not least lets talk Genocide, namely in Sudan. Yeah, we do have enough money to help, yeah we should have done something in Rawanda and Sudan - but WHERE THE FUCK ARE THE OTHER COUNTRIES ON THIS? I mean, you have a county that is bordered by 10 countries, lets step up our game there African Union - hey Egypt and Saudi Arabia (neighbors) get your Muslim brothers in the Janjaweed to stop killing people...

    I don't hear about African revolutions that end with a promise of hope, they all go to shit and the dumb ass population either hacks off a few thousand arms than goes back to working in the market or they get into infinate war such as in the Congo - so I remain sympathetic to the trapped and abused, but really Africa is hopeless...

    Africa is not hopeless..... Very fucked, yes, but not hopeless. There are some progressive movements, like the pan african union and a regional trade bloc being formed. More independence. It will take time but they are on the right track finally.

    It does not help that it was colonized for so many hundreds of years, and suffered many proxy wars during the cold war, and even still suffers from opportunistic corporations and private armies. It has only recently become independent. There is always an initial turmoil.

    seriously if you want to help, do something. get involved in a private organization, and stop saying "fuck america, fuck bush blah blah." it should not be the US governments job to give hand outs. let the private sector do it. its should not be the US;s job to give foreign aid, be the world police, promote welfare states, and create government dependence.
