Could you elaborate on how Africa was "raped"?


The rape of Africa's natural resources continues unabated

Lumber, diamonds stripped from Sierra Leone with natives working hand-in-hand with illegal operations


"Gbenie" a unique type of wood that is second only to ebony in richness, is now being ruthlessly pillaged from the country few remaining forests in Sierra Leone.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In particular, the western African nation of Sierra Leone has fallen prey time and again to others who wish to strip the land of its natural bounty. Nine years ago, when the nation was in the midst of a civil war, interlopers sought to pillage Sierra Leone's diamond mines.

Now at peace, a possible new agent of war has emerged. "Gbenie" a unique type of wood that is second only to ebony in richness, is now being ruthlessly pillaged from the country few remaining forests.

Timber has taken the place of diamonds throughout much of Africa. The country's forests are now at risk of being completely wiped out.

Chinese companies working in Sierra Leone lead the pack in deforestation. Logging companies have been destroying the country's forests, plundering natural resources and causing environmental problems. Worst of all, it is mostly being done illegally with local Sierra Leoneans operating as the front men for the foreigners.

I suggest you read two books.

How Europe underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney and the Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams. Two different perspectives analyzing the same phenomena.
