    I would like to point out that everyone here in America should be proud of what we can do to help the rest of the world.

    I have read a number of post on here that constantly ask "what has the US done for Africa or the rest of the the World."

    Well here is just one example of how generous we are. The money is given by Black, White, Yellow, Purple or what ever color you are. The generosity of the US is much greater than the rest of the world..

    The US destroys as much as it supposedly helps. And even when it does 'help' you better believe that America is still benefiting in some way.

    You have read a number of post on this website about how the US has done little for Africa, and you will continue to do so! Europe & America take more than they will ever give to Africa and black communities. This website is dedicated to talking about stories which are ignored by mainstream media. It is dedicated to building and strengthening black communities. If this doesn't sit well with you...you don't have to come here. Certainly don't tell us who or what to criticize!

    I don't know about anyone else, but I would love to know exactly who's hands those billions of dollars went into. Is it anything like Africa, where the U.S. sent all that money to "help" Africa, but forgot to include the part where they knowingly handed it over to corrupt people that lined their pockets with it in order to support their own agendas? The U.S., Britian and a host of other European countries are the cause of a lot of the problems that they are sending so called "relief" for. No one(especially black people and minorites) should be proud to be an American, because an American is a murderer or a supporter of murderers. America doesn't do anything out of the goodness of it's so-called heart. It awlays has a motive. Look throughout history and name one instance where America was actually helping without exploiting or taking something for themselves?

    This G-8 crap is nothing more than leverage. I wonder what conditions those countries will have to agree with before they get that debt relief.

    The US takes billions of dollars in resources from Africa: Oil, Diamonds, Gold, etc. Most of the money they "donate" goes to support oppressive & genocidal regimes. Virtually none of it goes to help people that need it. If you want to have a "rah rah-go USA" party, take it somewhere it would be appreciated!

    If you hate and despise th US soooo vary much WHY DO YOU STAY HERE?????

    The Money sent is to the government of the countries if you want to make a change go and fight for that change, fight the corrupt governments over there than you can say the money is going to the proper people but dont sit around and whine about the US not doing anything. What more would yo have them do the US that is..

    We are sending aid that if not used properly is a "LOCAL" issue Take it up with those vaunted African Leaders....

    Here we go with the "don't just sit here and whine" crap. If you don't have anything else to say, request that this thread be closed. People here have given you reason to why people hate the U.S., but now you want to get all dramatic about it.

    Believe it or not I do enjoy a number of post on here and seeing other peoples oppinions.

    There are many corrupt gov. who waste the money sent to them on themselves. This is true in Africa and the Carribean, yet when the US gov. refuses to send aid it's because the us is stingy and when the gov. does send aid its' What is their agenda??? It seems to be a case of damned if they do and damned if they don't. What would you have the US and other European coutries do?? End aid to Africa all together?? Many would starve if that was done and there would probably be many more Mugabes in charge
