United Nations: Send money to Africa immediately

Bet they need ventilators.
We should send Cuomo and his bitch brother over there to oversee things

I would give money if it were a reputable charity that I trusted. But, I've been burned by charities in the past that purport to help people in Africa, so I likely won't.

Also, there are charities in my area that are really hurting right now that I'm focusing on.



Aid in Africa is an unfathomable rabbithole.

Apparently a LOT of differnt things haopen to "Aid". The thing that doesn't happen very often is that it goes where it's supposed to go and helps the people it's supposed to help.

Often it is:

Intercepted by warlords

SOLD by the government

Hoarded to maintain political power.

Sometimes it is left to rot because they want to starve a particular population or to get them to cross the border into another country.

IT causes people to give up farming because it's arrival often destroys the value of their crops.

It attracts people to areas where aid is --where they have no family or means of survival-- and they get stuck 100% dependent on aid deliveries, which often dry up for one reason or another.

Beyond a clusterf@ck.

Nope. I donate to/raise money for charity every year. Any charity that gets my money has to be putting that money to use IN this country.

The only exception being, an OGer in need. Then it doesn't matter to me. Outside of that, gotta be a US charity. And I'd exect anyone else to look after their own nation above mine too.

Can't Wakanda help the rest of the continent?

Even if Wakanda was real, their governing mentality was that their people came first and always. They rarely and I stress rarely would help other Africans out. They would let them die at their gates before letting them in.


They even have the cure for cancer. And when asked if they would share it with the rest of the world one counsel member said "if they care about their peoples health they wouldnt sell cigarettes."

LOL cold hearted.

NO

Thanks for the info. I've never seen the movie.

What's funny is that most people who dont read the comics (blacks and whites included) didnt know that Wakanda largely was a very conservative nation.


Only the best people got jobs in the fields they wanted. Only the best people were elected leaders. They believed in having a strong military. They value business and education highly. Didnt care to help their neighboring nations because 1. They views other nations as people who would rarely try to fix their own problems and 2. They simply believed the Wakanada population was better and that allowing outside influences would not change them for the better.


 


So I always laugh when black people think Wakanada was very pro-africa when they were anything but that.

I'm sur the money will get to the proper recipients as it always does.


They'll be lucky if 20c on the dollar goes to "direct services" 

20? If more than a cent went to actual aid I'd be surprised.


I'm a glass 20% full kind of guy! Sue me for believing in people! 

Your blind optimism is inspiration

We got our own problems. FUCK the UN!

People really don't care. It isn't about facts. It's about feelings and selling race porn through the news since Hollywood is pretty much closed. 


How many BLM protesters know who Alex Haley is? Marcus Garvey? Malcolm Little? Shit, start with easy ones, Jessie Owens, Jack Johnson, Jackie Robinson.

Oh they would hate Jack Johnson. He had a liking of white women and that's a no go to many BLM members.

Hell No. We've been sending them Billions for nearly half a century and they're still shit.

Time to turn off the tap and let them adapt or perish.

Ahahahaha...

As an evil slaver-by-proxy whitey, I believe I will just buy more slaves with my time machine.


Make sure pay double to express your guilt. The slaves you bring back to the present will appreciate it. I mean why free twice as many slaves? Am I right or am I right?

Good call, on it.

How about no
