No. Actually because the white/western imperialists were throwing money at Africa and supporting corrupt political leaders, THAT is why Africa was not able to develop. Contrast that with what China is attempting to do in WORKING WITH Africa and trying to treat them as PARTNERS, despite how some Chinese are racist.
Well, I hate colonialism myself, but you can't deny what he said wasn't true: under colonialism, many countries such as Burma, Philippines, and many of the African countries were prosperous under White rule; after the Whites left, things all but went to hell in those countries. How do you explain that Burma and Philippines were the richest country in Asia just after colonialism? That Nigeria had higher economic development than South Korea and that Hong Kong became the economic miracle it is today? I don't like White imperialism, but Obama's brother had a point!
Before all this, you said you wanted to be a marine. So it's interesting that you could have the perspective of knowing what it's like to want to defend America and now you've come to this. I'm basically someone who respects warrior culture, but that requires honor codes like the samurai. So I see on the American Right dishonorable warriors and on the Left a bunch of sickening pansies. That's why I'm shifting focus to Asia.
