On another thread, there was discussion of a woman trying to send dog food to starving people in Kenya. In my opinion, this is not an offer of true charity, but an act of racism, whether intentioned or not. Regardless, I do know that middle & upper-class blacks either here or abroad have access to an abundance of food. I especially know how things are for middle-class African Americans. So, if Black Americans and other established blacks around the world were to pool together resources, how could a food drive be implemented to send food to blacks less fortunate? Do you know of any black-owned charities right now that are sending food? What costs need to be considered? How can individuals start these types of things? Are there cultural considerations that need to be thought about, especially since some African nations are Muslim? Note to mods: the post has shown up 3 times, and I can't delete the other two.
