    Who said "Africans don't want to work"? I don't remember hearing that.

    Now there are African-Americans who don't want to work, thanks to liberal entitlement programs. But they're not really "Africans."

    I've never heard that stereotype.

    I just said the same thing. I've heard that Africa is fucked up with socialists or worse governments, but I've never heard that the people are lazy.

    I agree with you both. Corrupt government seems to be the biggest problem in Africa as it is everywhere.

    Dangote is a Monsanto partner. In fact, the EU declared foods from Nigeria unfit for human consumption due to toxic levels of these chemicals.

    There seems to be a lot of western interference and manipulation going on over there. To the point that terrorists have been popping up and attacking the non western backed farmers and manufacturers and not the farmers and manufacturers backed by western interests. That's interesting, but not unexpected, given the players.

    Some old relevant reading - Nigeria Targeted with Tomato virus Tuta absoluta: Pressured to adopt Monsanto Hybrid Tomatoes…Report

    Maybe not but those in favor of affirmative action would go into a mass---turbation fest over the amount of otherwise unemployable blacks they have working there.

    Dangote grew very rich because Obasanjo and government shut down companies like Ibeto Cement to allow Dangote to monopolize areas of the economy
