You said

''And also, during the time of idi Imin [sp?], there was a great migration of people from China into Africa for economic benefits and the African people expelled them.''

Idi Amin was in power 1971 to about 1979.

So now you present an article which states Chinese diplomats where explelled from Central Africa to support your assertions?..lol ok.

You know nothing of African histroy, please stick to your bible.

Nigeria is willing to enhance cooperation with China in the tourism sector, an
official of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) said on
Friday.

Olusegun Runsewe, director-general of the NTDC said the corporation has
designed a special website in Chinese language in a bid to attract more
tourists from China.

The NTDC is a tourism body responsible for promoting, marketing and
disseminating information on Nigeria's tourism industry locally and
internationally.

"We receive over 200 enquiries from the Chinese audience on a daily basis,
requesting to know more about Nigeria," said Runsewe, who is planning to
visit China in early April to formalize arrangement with the Chinese counterpart.

"We have identified China as a big market for our tourism industry to move
forward, because we see them as a strategy partner," he said.

There are huge opportunities in Nigeria's tourism industry for investments, he said.

"We have most of the biggest hotels in world operating in Nigeria, but we
want more Chinese to come into Nigeria because they are special," he said.

"They are lovely people, nice people and very hospitable," he added.

long time no see Kem...

Generally speaking.. it's not a matter of need.. it's a matter of individual folks
capitalizing on opportunities.. these conversations often evoke very general
historical responses but this is really just a news story about some Nigerian
and Chinese businessmen working together to get money from Chinese tourists.
If I make a deal with a dude in Korea to import some mink blankets to sell in
my store.. the news headline would say something about American and Korea
and folks would start these general conversations about the history of the
nations and the war and all that.. when the reality is, I'm just trying to make
a buck.. and this business is really just between me and him.. not America
and Korea... Nigeria is the tenth largest producer of oil.. but what does that
mean for everyday folks? how does that translate? What's wrong with enticing
tourists to come and bring some new money into town? As long as the
government maintains control, it's all good.. that's what capitalism is.. and if
they're going to be capitalists, they're going to have to be open for new
opportunities.. and believe me, Nigerians are indeed capitalist.. with a capital
Capitalist..​

I'm trying to read as much as I can on African-Asian relations, but I can't see where Asian(Chinese, Japanese, Korean) actions have been as devastating as Euro-African or Arab-African.

I can afford to be romantic about how Africa should be strong and independent and not take any money from outsiders, but I don't have a country to lead and people to feed.

Who is going to provide the money for infrastructure and manufacturing investment?
When I was young I thought African-Americans would come to Africa's aid, but not now..at least not in this economy.
A country has no permanent friends or enemies. At this moment the World Bank, IMF and Western donor's policies have done Africa more harm.
Now I know the Asians aren't saints or saviors, as can be seen by these articles at afrik.com, http://en.afrik.com/china ,
but it's up to Africans to make agreements that are in the best interest of its people.. Good leadership will make good deals, corrupt leadership will sellout their country.

On another point.
Why bring up what China has done to its people as a reason not accept aid and investment?
Didn't Africa take money from America and Europeans, knowing what they had done to Africa's stolen sons and daughters, and native populations around the world.
Didn't Africa take money from Arabs who were into the slave trade before the europeans? Are Africans or African-Americans for that matter, immune to committing horrors against their own people?

Where will investment and aid come from if you use that criteria?

LOL..no, but you listen to KING JAMES!

My are we angry.
you don't like to be proven wrong by an African American do you?
Proven wrong?LOL...your usual diatribe..you know nothing of african history and it's been proven over and over again on this site, just SHOW AND PROVE THAT THERE WAS A LARGE MIGRATION OF CHINESE TO AFRICA AND THEIR SUBSEQUENT EXPELLATION.

...supremacist...

Kemakil, please remove this post. Because if you don't, you will surely be ostracized by the Afrocentrics, Pan-Africanists and Black Nationalists for your rationality and objectivity.

Very Very funny, If someone can make a good case I'm more than willing to be irrational and un-objective
