    The 10 Poorest Countries in the World | Fox Business

    9 out of 10 are in non-Arab Africa (meaning Black Africa)! The leader is Haiti. Haiti is a country founded by France in which they imported slaves from Africa. More slaves then slave owners equates to a bad situation. The slaves revolted and massacred every white man, women and children in the island. Hence the country is of African descendents. They were the 2nd country to gain independence in the western world, yet they remain the poorest country in the world.

    But I digress, why are all of the top 10 the poorest and worst off? Why are they plagued with genocide, war, famine, AIDS, rape and misery indexes off the charts! Yet most of these countries are lush in resources and have plush farm land.

    I will get the racist card tossed at me, so the question will never be answered, but is it about time this question gets answered?

    Why has non-Arab Africa NEVER had a civilized, rich and successful society or country?

    Look at the test scores in my sig. This might start to answer your question.

    Same reason that every city with a large population of blacks=high crime, low standards and a total cess pool.

    I wish it wasn't so, but it's the way it is.

    You aren't really a student of history..are ya?

    There have been pretty advanced Arab and African civilizations a plenty. Egypt and Mesopotamia are just two quick examples.

    What happened was they weren't as keen on war as those in Europe were..and many of those civilization fell under Greco/Roman rule. The modern age didn't get much better for them as they were parsed into "countries" by the west and subject to colonialism and slavery.

    Guess that's what really happens when you go for high culture while ignoring your military.

    Does Oil have anything to do with it?

    I don't think it's genetics! I have had too many highly intelligent well put together Black friends, co-workers and bosses!

    I can't understand the history of this, yet no one wants to touch it, for fear of being called a racists or Uncle Tom!

    Wow, I don't know where to begin. You didn't read a word, but have a lot to say.

    First, Mesopotamia was in the Middle East and weren't of "Black" African origins!
    Second, I stated non-Arab (meaning not North Africa). Arabs had there time in the sun. Third, ancient Egyptians being black is a source of controversy. We don't know (although it probable), since the Arabs invaders wiped out and displaced all the anicent Egyptians and replaced them with Arabs.
    Fourth, Egyptians weren't war-like people? What are you smoking?

    Lastly, with all the rich history of Africa you stretched on finding rich civilizations.

    The one closest might be ancient Carthage, during Hanibal's time. But it's a stretch calling them a rich, civilized (for the time) and advanced civilization and again the controversy calling them black origins!

    Oil is the only resource out there ya know! Most European countries don't have oil. Most of the countries of African have many other resources. Like Madacasgar has the largest reserves of bourbon vanilla in the world. In fact most of the vanilla in the world comes from Madacasgar. The Congo is LUSH in diamonds, other precious metals and a ton of materials required for medicines.

    Some countries have oil, such as Nigeria (OPEC nation) and Southern Sudan!

    Sounds like there is not much "Trickle Down" in those countries and the available wealth is being monopolized by the wealthy few
