Obama has some advice for Africa. Don’t blindly trust the United States because we are out to exploit their labor and resources. What is this? Colonialism all over again?
President Obama brought a BOLO message to South Africans Sunday. But it had nothing to do with the IRS: it was a warning to to be on the lookout for foreign powers who’d exploit their continent. And yes, that includes the US.
"When we look at what other countries are doing in Africa, I think our only advice is make sure it’s a good deal for Africa," he told a crowd gathered at the University of Cape Town, assuring them that a skeptical attitude is likewise warranted when it’s the United States involved. "If somebody says that they want to help you develop your natural resources, how much of the money is staying in Africa?"
The President told those assembled that the movement to bring an end to South African apartheid was near and dear to his heart as a student in California. "I know now that something inside me was stirring at that time, something important," he stated. "That’s why I got involved in what was known as the divestment movement in the United States."
