How does the world allow this cross dressing, heroin addicted, AK-47 Toting chiid soldiering, cannibalistic shithole to exist? If there is a hell on earth, this has to be it.

 

Discuss or maybe just disgust? Explain this to me

Now, if Liberia were the exact same Hell hole BUT with a tiny white monority in charge, THEN you would hear NPR stories about it every day. 

But you don't hear about it for basically the same reason you don't hear much about South Africa anymore.SA has really kinda gone to hell, but blacks are in charge so the media doesn't want to be critical.

The popular mythology in the media is that if people of color are put in power, then everything will be perfect because all evil is descend --in one way or another- from white people /colonialism, etc.  There are a LOT of people in the media who think like that and they don't want to report things that contradict their pollyannish world view.

OP is a neocolonialist asshole.

Liberia is a nation that is rich in culture,language and tradition.

Its only the history of white supremacist oppression that has held Liberia back from its destiny to become a beacon of Afrocentric hope.

OP fails to understand...because he is a white supremacist...that its traditional for a local chief, selected by meritocracy to rule.

If that Chief, like "General Buck Naked" happens to appear to be an insane sexual deviant by western standards..those standards are racist and colonialist.

Shame on the OP.

Shame

I'm not great on my US history - so forgive me if i am wrong - but is this not a country founded by ex American slaves who were freed? Was this territory given to them?

 

Was this white people acting good on "sending them back to Africa?"

Yep. The colonization movement began in the 1820's, officially became a country in the 1840's. Fun fact: The American immigrants (black Americans) had zero common cultural or language elements with the natives of Liberia, so they did the most natural thing, which turned out to be immediate enslavement of natives.

LMAO

Lol GM you didn't compare Liberia to SA did you?

Theres massive media coverage of the democratic efforts to get the ANC out in South Africa - the Democratic Alliance have won control of most of the major metropolitan governments from the ANC and they are weaker than ever.

I know a banker from Liberia. I am soooo tempted to ask him for stories about the place, but I don't want to be rude and who knows what horrors that dude might have seen over there.
