The Economic interest of Africa lies with China not the west. By aligning herself to China ,Africa has grown more than the time the West were calling the shorts here.

It's very sensible to have a cooperative exchange between China and African countries, and we help them build infrastructure, not just give them money. I want the people of Africa to get better, from China.

European and American sale the people in Africa as items. US start wars In Middle East. China invest Africa for railway system, basic infrastructure. And the west said it is a threat. lol

And now the Chinese are practicing racism in Africa with segregated train cars on the Railway they built, giving servant jobs to Africans with degrees and mistreating Africans in their own home. China is no friend of Africa & anti - blackness is a world wide affair. In a couple decades the Chinese will be the ruling elite class in African countries & these gullible African Leaders are letting it happen to fatten their pockets.

The West vs China in Africa 1) The West treats Africans as slave & laborer, while China treats them as equal symbiotic trading partners 2) The West send solders to colonize & steal, while China send businessman to provide capital, invest & trade 3) The West enslave millions via the slave trade, while China provide jobs to millions via industrialization 4) The West force extract mineral & plantation, while China provide knowledge & infrastructures to mine natural resource 5) The West support arms sales for African civil wars while China develops agriculture, factories, roads, railways etc 6) The West left Africa in poverty after years of colonization, while China progress & develops without colonization

First,I have to remind some of you guys, It's a kind of cooperation, not charity activities, of course it's not free. Second, developing by infrastructure is Chinese experence used in the last 40 years. And it works! Third,looking back at what happened in China 100 years ago, what some of so called democratic states did in China. At least, we send our engineer and our kindness. Not opium and army! Some guys always with worst intention but never do any donation, shame on you!

People have used pseudoscience as a excuse to say that Latinos and especially Africans have low IQ while Asians have the highest. Now we have, quote on quote *high IQ’d individuals* choosing to form a business relationship with Africans instead.... Of course the West is going to see this as a threat! What so called “superior being” would want to be dominated by a possible Asian and African coalition? Oh well...things change. Deal with it.

China doesn't care about human rights? the only thing that grants rights in this world is wealth. give a poor man voting power grants as much freedom as giving him BS. ideology has no value other than rallying the masses. if an evil communist, plutocratic nation lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty then maybe they are not so evil. my dad used to work for a Chinese (evil) nationally owned (evil evil) company that built roads in developing nations like Nepal and Iraq (evil evil evil) some of these roads are probably bombed to hell now (freedom!) but really it is which view point you take. democracy just means majority over minority. but it just seems the people who advocate democracy the most has the majority of the world at its knees. hmmm. China spends money looking for personal gain?! unbelievable!

China will wipe out Africans in the future, they have no white guilt or liberalism mindset, they're ruthless and will do what it takes to keep themselves on top lol My fellow Africans are so myopic, enjoy your death sentence fools!
Vatsala काली Jhaveri (11 days ago)
Why would they bother? Exterminating all Africans would be a monstrous waste of time and resources. And millions of Chinese would die in the process, unless they used nukes. And then what would they gain? Irradiated deserts? Come on, man, think a little.

So what seems to be the problem? It’s better than just taking things by force and breeding rebels to keep chaos in the land for better control right? I mean, making allies through investment and good will is hard to do. Can you imagine other superpowers not retaliate you some form or another when you vote against them? Dude, this is the “communist country” that the western world try’s to claim is complete evil letting votes against slide. Are you kidding me? Just 2.something project less and you’re bitching about it? Imagine someone betraying the us and the shitstorm that will rain on that country. I don’t know man, what the Chinese is doing seem pretty fair.

China is buying allies? Is this really what you think? Helping others costs a lot of money. If people in Africa saw the progress they made with China’s help including money, they embrace China and chose to be its allies.

White countries : sells black ppls to America and the colony to work for them as slaves.Raiding all their resources.Trading and treating them like animals. China : Helping black countries to built bridges,houses,anythings that they can use.Teaching them the farming techniques,lending them the farming machines.Sending soldiers to protect innocent ppls from the warlords.Let them use Chinese medical resources by free.Even if u doing great seeking for opportunities,they will help ur business. *WHO'S THE EVIL ONE?* *AND WHO IS THE ONE SELLING THEM AK47 INSTEAD OF WATER MACHINES SO THAT THEY CAN GROW THEIR OWN CROPS*

the white man in this video omit the fact, that white man in africa colonizing back in the days....... WAS NOT INVITED to Africa......... THEY CAME by themselves, for themselves. they came...... they killed, they raped, they pillage, AND on top of all that humiliation for 500 years, they enslaved the blacks of Africa........... now only did white man take resources for free back to white western europe to make their nations rich, white man get to rape black women for free, white man get to enslave fathers and brothers to work for free, collecting african resources, minerals, back to white europe.... the asian, chinese came invited, without none of these things........... what they built, you have to pay back at low low interest with high risk of default, that is something white businesses and banks will NEVER EVER DO, risk their money in default............. only crazy asians willing to take their chance and gamble on their money. in short, the video created by this white trash group, is as twisted, racist fuck as their ancestors who raped africa and parts of asia......... aka french indo china.
tyjghjghhh (15 days ago)
I have NEVER EVER met a white man in my life that gave me stuff for FREE out of kindness........... so why does the white man think the chinese will go to africa, spend $100 billion dollars to build african nations free roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, hydro dams, airport, trains, buses, cars, telecommunication towers, water filtration, food crops farm equipment.............. all to give to the african people, and then say,, we chinese thank you africans for allowing us to give it all to you for free, enjoy your life now, we chinese are going back to china, where there is still 20% piss poor village chinese somewhere dying...... i am sure the white man thinks he is giving africans free shit all the time............. aka rape, pillage the nation, then throw in a bone for some blacks to fight over it. you got to love how white man twist and turn words and news story and history, facts, to fit their narratives and propaganda brain washing towards humans across the planet...... never have i met a good, decent white man.... NEVER...... they always got some secret agenda they want something from you........ but yet, funny how the white man points fingers at other nations, while doing the opposite.
