It is the Western Nations that "Colonized" Africa claiming it as their own and proceeding to strip it of all of its wealth.
All of those wars and conflicts in Africa have at their roots Corporations from the West trying to gain control of resources on the Continent. They orchestrate Coups and then put in place leaders that the people despise and that are corrupt and that help those Corporations plunder the poor.
Did you know , as example, that African nations pay France millions of dollars a year because after France left, they claimed Monies owed them because of the Infrastructure they had built when they had seized those lands? Did you know that the USA and France forced Haiti to pay the French billions of dollars in compensation when the peoples of Haiti declared independence because france claimed the loss of slaves was a loss of property?
I suggest Europe owes Africa Billions and more for the mass murders they committed there and for the wealth they plundered. King Leopold of Belgian had some 10 million people in the Congo murdered and the Belgian overseers used to chop of the limbs of men they thought shirking at their work.
That which you label "Your dime" is a dime multiplied a billion and more times over that was stolen from the peoples of Africa just as the "Founding Fathers" created "Your dime" by enslaving Africans by the millions. Some of the largest Corporations in Europe and in the USA had their roots in the Slave trade or plunder of Africa for its resources. Whose "dime" is it really?
