Europe has for the first time in its long history has to face large numbers of people from Africa. Since the beginning of the mass departure of Syrians seeking relief from the continuing carnage in that part of the world. Africans are now making that perilous journey in hopes of finding a better life in Europe.The continent of Africa has been plundered by European society for centuries to fill their treasuries. Now the chickens have come home to roost. Africa for the most part is a third world country due to the lack of concern about the people by those who colonized them. I have often wondered why African societies look they way they do in some places like the did a hundred years ago. The technology of the modern world is out of reach for most people.
European countries that are most impacted by African immigrants are now building fences on their borders to slow down the migrants progress. Reality is setting in for those who risked their lives to have a better life in a far away land. People of color are not usually welcomed in those lands except to be exploited. America’s history of slavery is a prime example of that attitude. The one truth about life is that change is constant whether we like it or not. Africa was exploited by Europeans and now they have to find a way to help their fellow human beings who are the ancestors of those who gave them their collective wealth. It is not only the right thing to do it is their duty.
