Jim Carroll BS: Colonial Sins (32) RE: BS: Colonial Sins 24 Jun 20

THese countries were pulundered for profit for may centuries and the legacy they left behind was one of greed - it is little wonder that tsome of worst elements of the indigenous population took their cue and continued their "good work", especially as those forced to leave made sure that the country ws left "in a safe pair of hands"
inconveniently principled leaders like Nkrumah were removed, with the help of the West - Lumumba was murdered
International leaders in the position, and prepared to make a difference, like Dag Hammarskj÷ld were 'got out of the way' so that changing countries could "remain the same"
I went though my schooldays being told hat "these countries are not ready to rule themselves" - racism on a global scale
Terms like 'primitive' were used as an excuse to enslave and profit from countries with perfectly workable systems which suited their own conditions far more than those which were forced on them
Countries like Egypt and Ethiopia had civilizations while today's 'modern nations' were swinging in trees - humanity began in Africa
