how do republicans explain the new health care system?
Remarkable. So you think race/skin color has something to do with advancement ?
Lets start with the Atlantic slave trade shall we? The largest forced mass exodus in recorded history. 9-11 million Africans forcibly removed to work as slaves in the New World. Some historians have argued that this destroyed successive generations of Africans, destroying their overall capacity to grow.
Why wasn't Africa developed at all before this?
[/quote]Go look at the world map. European borders are intricate, often very hard to draw. African countries are geometrically easy to draw. That's because the great white man arbitrarily barged onto their land, drew a line in the sand without consideration for local, religious or cultural values. When the great white master was done exploiting publicly he left a largely ill equipped crop of leaders and a multitude who don't recognize the nation state as the white man does. Any sane leader leader they got, the great white man decided to kill. Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara and Steve Biko come to mind.[/quote]Europe has had arbitrary borders, so has Asia. Yugoslavia, China includes a large number of minority ethnic groups, India is divided into dozens too. None of them are shit holes on the scale of Africa. Plus, even relatively homogenous nations (Lesotho, Swaziland, arguably Liberia since it was founded with few initial ethnic divisions) are still broken.[/quote]
Thirdly how you define progress, values and growth matters. For all intents and purposes India is more democratic in terms of civil liberties than Singapore. Yet economically, Singapore is proportionately far wealthier. Similarly, Africa's threshold should take into account the overall situation, education, healthcare and system of rule as well as intervention.
They have no education, no healthcare, no system of rule. By every conceivable benchmark except AK-47's per capita, they are terrible. They are also way behind where they were when ruled by whites.
By the same logic, I can ask why Eastern Europe is severely less wealthy than say UK or Switzerland. Nothing to do with their skin color or racial origin. Everything to do with historic circumstance.
>nothing has to do with...racial origin
Is propaganda so ingrained in you that you cannot fathom groups evolving differently and having different attributes? Eastern Europe, your example, is infinitely superior to most of Africa, despite "imperialist" Russian interference, and ethnic divisions in Ukraine, Romania, and ex-Yugoslavia.
