    Thats interesting right there bro
    For real I think thats a good move
    I dont know if all of venezuela would agree with this
    One my ex's is from venezuela we never really
    Talked about africans at all she never really mentioned it
    I wonder why???
    She was a really quiet person from the start
    Her family was ok with my but not all the way
    It was like they would let me in-But puh away at the same time
    I might just have to give her a call and ask her what does she think

    I knew a white skinned venezuelan. I actually got in a fist fight, well more like wooped his *** in grade school for making a racial insult. I never see black people in these cuban or s. american governments, just an enemie of another name. although I am impressed by chavez's stance against whiteness a.k.a amerikka and europe. Africa beware, these Other races have learned (some cases taught) the white man and womans success of exploitring africa as well as working in collusion with these currupt african leaders.

    Venesuela just wants Oil, they could care less about Africa's condition, atleast they're not making up a "War on Terror" like Amerikkka.

    What Oil producing African nations should do is unite and control their oil with an iron fist, they should be getting rich from it.

    I think Africa needs to get off the white nipple first of all. It seems to have options out there aside from America. Of course Venezuela is going to make moves in order to improve it's own country, that doesn't mean it's wrong if it's giving Africa an opportunity to make moves to improve itself. No one is going to just walk over and hand out stuff to Africa. This has been proven time and time again. It's not in their interest to grab Africa by the hand and lift it out of the mud. Africa needs to stand on it's own two feet and use other countries and stop being dependant on America and European countries. It's the same as blaming Asians for opening shop in black communities in America. Why wouldn't they? They're trying to get money too, since black people don't want to do it for themselves. So of course Chavez and Venezuela, China and India are going into Africa to further their own economy, but that doesn't make what they're offering a bad thing. I thnk this is a big reason why black people continue to fail. We want people to come over and lift us to their level out of the goodness of their heart and it's just not happening. That goes for blacks in America as well as Africa.
