Well... The WHITE people certainly were prosperous when they colonized Africa...
2/18/2009 8:30:09 AM
So, uh... Tell me about those republics.

The ancient Egyptians would like to have a word with you.

The Empire of Mali or Great Zimbabwe would disagree.

Africa had empires that rivaled those in Latin America before colonialists came and fucked it all up.

It was prosperous during the period that it was divided up as colonies by the Europeans, and afterward as White ruled republics.
Ah, while it was being raped and gutted it was prosperous, now that there's nothing left to take, yeah poverty has hit.
Oh and that barbaric religion tends to be one of the big 2 (Christianity/Muslim) so don't be blaming them for that bullshit.

If white majority = prosperity, why is the US going down the toilet?

Yama the Space Fish
"They use their fields mostly for pasture. Little is cultivated and even less is sown. The problem here is not the quality of the soil but rather the lack of industry on the part of those who should cultivate it. This laziness means that the different types of minerals with which hidden veins of the earth are full are neither mined nor exploited in any way. They do not devote themselves to the manufacture of flax or wool, nor to the practice of any mechanical or mercantile act. Dedicated only to leisure and laziness, this is a truly barbarous people. They depend on their livelihood for animals and they live like animals."

I don't think Egypt counts as "sub-Saharan"...

The Ancient Malinese and Songhai would like to have a word with you.

It was prosperous...
But thats because white people did not consider black people to be human. So it was prosperous, because there were riches, and slaves to mine the riches.

Don't forget, of course, the postcolonial scumbags who took advantage of the power vacuums left behind by the colonial powers. It's people like Mugabe, Idi Amin, and the religious authorities who are doing this, not the people themselves. They've never had a say to begin with.

Yeah, some fat fuck in a nice first world country with a refrigerator full of food typing into the laptop his mummy bought him. Pointing at poor people with a different skin colour starving and saying "its all your fault". Wasp, I'd like to see you live under the same circumstances for a day. Then come back to me and tell me about savagery and barbarity. Actually you seem to manage it with all the riches in the world, funny that. I'd still like to airdrop you into Somalia and leave you there - scumbag.

Proud member of the "brainwashed White majority."

It's funny. Those europeans brought the Africans to become rich and prosperous. At least that's what they said then.
2/20/2009 5:43:09 PM
Yeah, just like the Europeans made the Native Americans rich and prosperous, right? Moron.

The Congolese people have a word with you there. So do the Senegalese.
