The way a lot of you guys talk about Africa is dripping with ignorance.

    Here are some words used to describe various African countries that have adopted anti gay laws.


    Barbaric

    Not Civilized

    Primitive

    How about this lovely quote?

    "When Ethiopia has its next famine, instead of giving aid, how about a blockade, to help them starve faster?"

    Rather than waste breath on people who don't know how to use the internet before they open their mouths, I'll just leave this here.

    This is YOUR country. The country that YOU live in is responsible for sparking policy debates all over Africa about gay people.

    Please discuss Africa with at least as much respect as you give the Russians (whose degree of civilization never gets called into question)

    The way that people discuss Russia is rooted in sympathy for the gay people who actually live there. The primary focus of conversations are how to help those people. So we are acknowledging that Russians are not all the same.

    But when people talk about nuking Africa or letting people there starve, they don't even make the leap of logic that it would take to realize that killing the entire populations of African countries is bad for the gay people there too!

    It only makes sense when you consider that criticisms of Africa are not coming from a sense of sympathy for African LGBT people but from something as simple as the affront posed to someones own ego here in the west.

    With Russia it seems to be about solidarity with Russian LGBT people. There is a belief that Russia is capable of reform because they are "civilized" enough to achieve it.

    Africa is discussed like it's some hopeless primitive place where peoples' brains are smaller and they can't ever become tolerant of gays because it isn't in their savage nature.

    People are ignorant about Africa because their opinions are based solely on what they see on TV. Most likely, they've never been exposed to any type of African culture either.

    I've met several people from Ethiopia and Nigeria and they were one of the most wonderful human beings I've ever met. I tried their food too....my god it was delish!

    Russian people also hate the residents of Brighton Beach... (because they are Jewish)

    Anyway, OP, I know some people who still view Africa as though it is the 1960s...

    But I would call upon Africans to stop listening to the American fundamentalist missionaries. I heard in a documentary some Ugandans not wanting to have the West impose their standards on them, calling it colonialism.
    Does anyone else see the contradiction?

    Jaggal saidIt's because white people are associated with intelligence and power (Majority of scientific breakthroughs made in the west) and colonization, I am talking from maybe the 18th or 19th century till now. Sheer overpowering of others. This is relatively new, with respect to world history. Arabs had their time, and east Asians also had their time.

    East Asians will soon have their time again, bigger and better.

    Jaggal, you do realize the way you are talking is as if those were your original thoughts right? Making people here rightfully feel as if though they should look down on you... right?

    Actually no. I praise him for his honesty. IMHO, he's mostly right. Just because he is Arab doesn't mean he should blindly defend everything his people do.

    Blacks on RJ tend to blindly defend Africa simply for the fact that they are African. It's nonsense.icon_rolleyes.gif

    God knows Latin America is far from perfect, but it's leaps and bounds ahead of Africa and many other parts of the world. It's actually a place people want to live and visit.

    Just because you worship at the alter of white cock doesn't mean that you have to constantly try other people to get to.

    I pointed out a difference in the way that homophobic policy in Africa and Russia get's discussed. Nowhere do I defend any of the leaders of any of the African nations who have chosen to adopt these policies.

    Please troll in a manner that is more considered and informed. Nothing worse than a sloppy troll.

    It's definitely true that the far-right in my country exports a lot of bigotry. The things that they cannot possibly do here, they export to Africa.
