In a lot of Africa that education isnt available. There are areas in Africa where that is available but what education do you think is available in the countries where you are just trying to escape genocide?

We are the 1% in the USA and we should be damn proud of what we and our ancestors have built.

PS I think some of the people in this thread are fighting with each other with about as much intelligence as the Africans they are so hateful of...

3 Out of.......Couple hundred million? .

I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm saying that it doesn't happen nearly as much and the resources aren't even close to as available there as they are here.

White South Africa is a lot different than black South Africa. I've been there twice. The whites dominate and are educated and have good jobs. The blacks are uneducated and have menial jobs at best. The unemployed homeless that are migrating south from central Africa are over running South Africa. As you pull up to an intersection there, you cannot have your windows down. Black people surround your cars trying to sell you things. Anything, like coat hangers and toilet paper. As you drive along the highway there are hundreds and hundreds of little huts with people just sitting there, nowhere to go, no jobs available, nothing. I consider the chances for these people to get out are very slim. On the contrary, a homeless person here in the states only has to go as far as McDonalds to get a job. And like you said with the Injuns, people have given them opportunities that they don't take advantage of. I believe there's a huge difference.

I did not say you as a whole have that much intelligence, I was saying your argument does. If you haven't been to the third world and seen what the people have or lack as far as opportunity then you are basing your assumptions on uneducated, uninformed misconceptions. If that makes me unclassy then I am fine with that.

I agree with you and this doesn't only occur in Africa, it is not uncommon in undeveloped or underdeveloped countries.

I work, live and experience life in a small town a long ways away from Africa. I have not been to Africa and don't care to. I agree that by the world's standards we are the 1%.

I also know a couple of pretty incredible people who were born in poverty in the middle of Africa and found their way here, to the same small town I live in. I can only assume that their are a lot more people like that in the rest of this country, you know the people that wanted something better and got it. The only argument I made was that you can't simply dismiss someone, simply because they are born in Africa.

Did they do it totally on their own or did they have help? From an impoverished village?
