    As nation starves, Senagal president builds $28 million tribute to Negro race. Paid for with money from US taxpayers.

    This $28 million tribute to "African Renaissance"Â￾ overlooks shanty towns and piles of garbage. It's unveiling corresponds with Senegal getting a $540 million bonus from US taxpayers for "good governance."Â￾ Senegal already gets about $85 million a year from US taxpayers. Foreign aids constitutes over 1/4th of the budget of the government of Senegal.

    Senegal president Abdoulaye Wade compared the statue to Jesus Christ last December. He also say he has exclusive "intellectual property rights."Â￾ Anyone using the image will have to pay royalties to him personally, not the government. Wade also plans to charge a fee to see the statue with 35% of the money going into his own pocket. This must be what Hillary Clinton calls "good governance!"Â￾

    Jesse Jackson and Senegal born US rap star "Akon"Â￾ will be attending the unveiling.

    From BlackPlanet"¦

    President Abdoulaye Wade has invited about 30 heads of state to the inauguration, a day before the 50th anniversary of Senegal's independence. U.S.-Senegalese rapper Akon and U.S. civil rights activist Jesse Jackson will also attend.

    Opponents of the statue â€" which is billed as representing Africa's rise from "centuries of ignorance, intolerance and racism"Â￾ â€" are due to protest in central Dakar on Saturday despite a ban on all marches by town authorities.

    In the latest blow to Wade's project, a leading imam on Friday issued a fatwa condemning it.

    The $28-million statue has been criticized as a waste of money in a country with crumbling infrastructure and welfare provision, while Muslims have branded it "un-Islamic"Â￾ for presenting the human form as an object of worship.

    Much like Haiti and other all black nations, Senegal survives on massive handouts from white nations and white charities. Recently Hillary Clinton organized the transfer of $540 million in US taxpayer dollars to Senegal as a reward for "good governance."Â￾ Specifically, Senegal isn't as violent as the rest of Africa, so Hillary thought they deserved a huge reward.

    Though many don't think Senegal has such "good governance."Â￾

    From Business Insider"¦

    U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Calif.) told Business Insider that "Given the brazen corruption, the aid should be stopped."Â￾ "Unfortunately,"Â￾ he added, "I don't have much confidence that the funding is safe,"Â￾ cautioning that Karim Wade, the president's son, "plays too large a role in the process."Â￾

    That and other opinions expressed in the article have attracted high-level attention in Senegal. Southerland, speaking at the same "civil forum"Â￾ as Dia, said there was no "change"Â￾ or "retreat"Â￾ for the $540 million anti-poverty award destined for the country's rural interior (the infrastructure projects are expected to benefit more than one million Senegalese within five years.)

    C Darwin congrats on hitting 1000 posts.

    The article you posted is par for the course. Negros must be given something to maintain some form of civility or "good governance."

    However, 540 million is beyond the pale. And dummy whites and the co-conspirators that is the press will not object in the least. Another Haiti but on a much smaller scale.

    These negros would not exist except for whites.

    The name African Renaissance makes me laugh. Obviously everyone involved doesn't realize that to have a renaissance you actually had to have some notable level of civilization before that. Compare Senegal to the real Renaissance. Culturally Senegal has never reached the level of the Roman culture that was lost, the Dark Age culture that came after, or the European Renaissance of the 16th century. And how much of a "re-birth" can it really be if you can't even pay for the statue that signifies it with your own money? No doubt the starving primitives will be praying to this thing in no time.

    There NEVER was a great civilization in Sub-Sahara Africa. Ethiopia had one since it was close in proximity to Egypt, but NOT very well known and documented. Go deeper south, and it's very clear why Africa was called the DARK CONTINENT. South Africa would never be South Africa if not for the Dutch (Boer) and British colonists.

    There were no great kingdoms like Greece or Rome in Sub-Saharan Africa, but Mali, Songhay, Nubia, Ghana, Axum, Medieval Ethiopia, the Swahili trading cities and even the Kongo were more advanced than most contemporary Western and Northern European civilizations in terms of government, trade, the economy, the military and for some of the kingdoms literacy.

    If you're really interested in that issue a place like wikepedia won't be completely accurate of course, but it will give you a general idea. The history is not hidden away in some dusty books in a library like when I first started researching it to see if Africa was as backwards as I was taught in school (all hunters and gatherers like Bushmen and Pygmies). Ancient and medieval Europeans, Arabs and N. Africans often commented on how advanced and powerful some of these kingdoms were.

    This link about African militaries before 1800 is a pretty easy and entertaining read. Of course some of the info will likely be false, but most reflects what I already know. It's a good starting point if you're interested in the issue.

    There was no Greece or Rome in black Africa, but a kingdom like Mali/Songhay, for instance had 30-40 million people, was larger than Western Europe, had governors, mayors, currency, cavalry units with armor and some of the more famous universities of the Middle Ages. Just like what we're fed about white athletes is usually not what it seems, what we're fed about African history is usually not what it seems either.
