Africa is finally free of the yoke of colonialism; and has been for decades; and therefore, are masters of their own destiny.
There is no lack of natural wealth or opportunity! Gold, diamonds, platinum, oil, gas coal, water and vast tracts of arable land, needing only water surety, to create wealth!
They are free to go forward, or return to the very tribalism/elitism; and or, blame-shifting/revenge/reprisals, that held them back, spawned slavery, witchcraft, and women not worth more than cattle!
Ending the white blame game, would be a lot more productive, than a gazillion Zimbabwean dollars!
Why Zimbabwean dollars?
Well, they truly represent, just what is possible, by reverting to type or tribalism; and or, simply deserting all that the white man bought with them, as progressive egalitarian gifts.
The rule of law, fair and equitable elections, non partisan public servants, schools, railways, roads, irrefutable land title, totally independent courts/judiciary, soccer, cricket and hopefully occasionally, impartial umpires!
The drunk can blame the white mans' whiskey for his addiction, all while ignoring the hand that holds the glass, or the elbow than bends and bends, until stupor prevents it from bending any longer!
