We “civilized" nations have ROBBED Africa for CENTURIES. Now when they cannot survive in their own land, we refuse to share the RICHES we STOLE. I understand that many think of the USA and Europe as CHRISTIAN countries.

Africa can never escape it's destiny,to many tribal differences ,no birth control, to much corruption.Why should Europe have to shoulder the burden.We have enough problems of our own. The African countries have had enough time to get their house in order.Live in Africa and you will see that their concept of living is the opposite of ours. Infact just look at Europe haven't we taken in enough immigrants? Has it resolved anything in Africa No?
