I see a lot of people talking about how Africa is in need of help but I can't do anything about it. Why? 1. I don't have money to travel. 2. I'm not familiar with that part of he world so I don't know where to begin both geologically and politically. 3. I'm not sure how African Americans are viewed over there. Chances are they would see me as an outsider and would not prefer me to meddle in their business. 4. I like things to happen at a certain pace. I know that change cannot happen instantly but I like to do things where I know I would see improvement in a certain amount of time. Helping out at a local level or even a regional level could take a few years but helping out an entire continent could take decades. I'd probably die before anything begins to progress (by die I mean by old age/natural causes). I hope I don't sound selfish saying any of this but it's how I feel. If there was a massive act of rebellion throughout all or most African countries then I would step in because I'd have a majority of those who want things to change on my side. But as long as I keep hearing about how people are laying back and having everything taken from them without a fight, I can't do anything for them.
