There is something in Black Africa that does not go round. In all other countries of the world, the best jobs are done by their own citizens, the best houses are inhabited by their own citizens, the best food is reserved for their own citizens, the best health care is reserved for their own citizens, the best education is reserved for their own citizens. These countries have put in place rigorous and ruthless systems that do not allow foreigners to have access to purchasing power allowing them to live at the same level as their own citizens. In these countries, the most critical decisions, those concerning the future of their peoples are taken by their own citizens.
In Black Africa, the opposite is true: the best jobs are done by foreigners (or are exported), foreigners live in the best houses, eat the best food, have access to the best education (if there is one) and best health care. But that is not enough. Foreigners, if they do not directly take the most critical decisions, they dictate them to our leaders in exchange for their retention in power. This is called cooperation. The results are disastrous for our peoples who, moreover, have a very bad appraisal of foreign countries. Those who think that citizens of foreigns countries are friends and venture to leave the African sun are victims of arbitrary police. They are searched, humiliated, interrogated, put in detention centers. They are forbidden to travel freely and in the end they are simply deported to their countries of origin.
What do you think needs to be done to remedy this situation?
