That's what the man told me.

There were two bins of oranges. One with home grown oranges for a dollar a piece and the other the grocer told me was from South Africa for 86 cents.

The US has been destroying the good supply in Africa for centuries and now we have to import oranges from them? Poetic justice?

But wait a minute, the people in Africa are supposed to be starving. Why is their government selling food to the United States?

- I want to ask that grocer why he's segregating his oranges...lol

Why is their government selling food to the United States?

I think the answer though can be found in the 'who runs america' thread...

Africa is not a country. Not everyone in Africa is starving. There is famine in the country of Somalia. Foreign governments have purchased land in Africa mainly because their land is not producing enough food.

how can one speak of Africation, and deny Black farmers Afro American dolars, but it is OK for negros to purchase gold and diamonds from white folks there?

How can anyone speak about Pan Africanism unles we buy ant way we can from our sister and brother back home?

Let's face te facts, with SAs objection to the US and NATO involvement in Libya does anyone expect,
US and AFRICOM to allow any aid from SA to the now US, former Russian colony Somalia?
