Just in case you missed my incredibly sweet, romantic and dreamy entry from yesterday, go back and read it.
Every six hours, a woman is killed by her partner in South Africa. All kidding aside… what the hell is wrong with Africa? We have a country whose main export is poverty and disease, who kill their own women at an alarming rate, and kill each other in tribal battles as if it’s the stone ages.
I hear so many people talking about how evil the white man was for bringing Africans here as slaves. However, in retrospect, it’s hard to imagine things could have turned out better for the descendants of the slaves. Their alternative would be living in Africa being killed by rival groups.
Now please hear what I’m not saying. I’m in no way condoning slavery or minimizing the suffering that many Africans suffered at the hands of Americans. However, I can also say that no one currently living today in America has ever owned a slave, nor been a slave. So face it… it’s better to be here, ugly history and all.
I also love the people that say ignorant things like “Man, I wanna go back to my homeland of Africa, yo.” What? I can see going on a safari with heavily armed guards. But you wanna live there? I don’t believe you for even one second.
You’re going to leave a country where we have stores full of food, liquor stores on every corner, hot women of every race, air conditioning, cable TV, clean water, and the rule of law… so you can live somewhere that there’s not enough food to go around, AIDS is so commonplace there aren’t enough drugs to treat it, there are hundreds of tribal factions, most of which hate each other, and the rule of law is whoever has the biggest guns. Yeah. Right.
Go ahead… go live in Africa. Have fun. Don’t come crying to me when you get dragged out of your bed and beaten in your front yard while your kids watch. You’ll be happy to be beaten to death because you’ll be so tired of being hot and hungry.
It sounds like I’m ranting just about Africa. It’s only because I read the article about the women being killed every six hours. There really isn’t any country you could make much of a case for living if you could live in America. Go ahead and try. I’ll laugh at your silly justifications and blow my nose on you, you silly English ki-nig-hts.
