Why famine happens only in Africa? in General Posted April 23, 2006 Azmaya, ur saying Africa's plight stems form laziness? so the starving children who "drink their urine" are lazy? The women who can't feed her babies is lazy? the African man who is dying form AIDS is lazy? All who suffer unimaginably ARE LAZY? i don't think so. the situation is not about laziness but ineptness to govern. It's not about black character of failure its about the history of SLAVERY, COLONIZATION, and continued SUBJUGATION that the blacks can not overcome. If anything the Black race should be credited for surviving all these injustices. But the one important trait we lack is resiliance an ability to bounce back up again to the times of greatness of Mali, Ghana, Songhai!
