You compare material wealth. You're way off. The family living in a grass hut is much better off than a ghetto family living in a shack, surrounded by drugs, guns and what not. As I said before, you've never visited Africa, never known what makes them tick, how they live, what their family values are, etc. Of course, things are spoiling for them as more and more Africans gravitate towards the big cities where there is no work for them. And why do they move to the cities? Because their agriculture is kaput. Why is that? Well, explanation would take too long and you would just shrug it off. But it has all to do with markets. Exported foods at low prices, imported foods at high prices. Harks back to colonial days, you wouldn't understand, and taken over by multinationals. Ever seen the Niger delta where they have oil facilities in Nigeria?<quoted text>
How much is the rent of a grass with w/a dirt floor, op-en windows and doorway, etc.?
Now, take the typical welfare home in the U.S., what would it rent for in Central Africa?
You persist somehow on comparing values that are incomparable. But just saying that the African should be grateful for having been "invited" to work parties in the US for more than 150 years and is now much better off when Occidental influence has made sure that things went ever so badly and worst in Africa and the underdeveloped world in general, at the same time that slaves suffered in the U.S., Central and south America and the Carribean, well, how are those for odds?
May appear simplistic, but if the white man had stayed out of Africa and a whole lot of other "third world nations", things would be a whole lot better fort them than the consequences of their forced "immigration" to the U.S., Central and South America.
