Todays Guardian gives an article from the European perspective. I think a most telling paragraph which applies to some on this site is:

"Much like Donald Trump, the Brexiteers have proven themselves immune to information or insight that does not meet their emotional needs. This must be why they continue to hope and insist that in order to avoid this proliferation of new barriers to trade, the EU will relent and allow Britain to have its cake and eat it ? to forget about the obligations of EU membership while continuing to enjoy its many advantages.

This simply will not happen"

The remainder of the article can be found here.

Trump is both a symptom and a diversion. Whether or not he himself is a racist is both doubtful and irrelevant.
What is more to the point is the enormous amount of time and energy spent on the issue which has taken the place of world affairs, world energy, world collapse, and world economy.
He is simply a gross national product.

Jackaroodave. The two medical items you highlight I share your reservations.
To respond to your initial question is more straightforward. The situation in Africa is what it is. The statistics for poverty stricken countries are that out of 50, 34 are in Africa. The explanation I gave for this was pretty much a gross simplification referring to essentially post WW2. Since this time it is hard to pinpoint an African country that has not had dislocations by war or regime change in addition to the traumas of decolonisation. You can either accept that as a statement or refute it. How you make the jump from outlining cause and effect to a given political stance escapes me. There are a multitude of reasons to explain why so many African countries are dysfunctional the paper outlined some of them.
Like any other country all African countries have an educated elite, but in the case of Africa the numbers are very small and hardly egalitarian, and they inevitably are the most mobile.
   Unlike some I do not care what sources I use for information,I will even scroll through rumour mill news, not because I believe a fraction of what is there but because there are sometimes little nuggets that are inserted (?) that give a rather different perspective on certain events. Such items force one to question the accepted narrative and in these latter days of spin that is no bad thing. I had the advantage of a career that took me to five continents and 40+ countries and much of the time this involved travel into the boonies. Inevitably this brought me to sights and events that others have to rely on reporters for. You see it first hand and inevitably it has an impact on you, especially sick children or children with missing limbs and not a hope in hell of obtaining prosthetics.

I do not care if a source of information comes from the extreme left or far right. If the content bears up to scrutiny and is at least supported in the main by other sources I will often accept the gist of what is being said.
In the case of the link I gave, it was the result of a brief internet search on African poverty and deprivation. What it had to say largely supported my own view. I do not necessarily support all the content blindly there may be one or two points I disagree with. However if linking to a site you have it in its entirety you cannot censor the odd phrase that does not fit with your perceptions. To generate the main thesis by myself would take too much time and too much space. That is why I use links. It seems too easy on this forum to go out and massacre the messenger because it then absolves you from reading the message.
I could discount much content of the New York Times or CNN if I went down that road.
    Sadly in this day and age there is no such beast as a provider of unbiased news. I suspect such an animal probably never existed, the author inevitably provides content tinted by his own perceptions that may be right or may be wrong. Today such content goes through further editing, massaging,censorship. Having been on the ground in places where events have happened my own view has an entirely different slant compared to that being reported by the MSM. Today the MSM and governments exert more control than perhaps most realize. This is something of a digression but calling someone a snowflake is small beer compared to be labelled racist for outlining what is essentially the truth. It seems the included warts do not sit well with some.
We are still faced with the fact that as yet no one has coined a replacement for shithole, Disfunctional hardly starts to describe it.

" If you say 'I am not a racist but'..."the bodies are not picked up for days", you might sound racist .

This rather shows the difference between Africa and the US. Stating the reality is hardly racist. It is a different world in places. The story was: touch the body and it is your responsibility and COST. Harsh but that is the way it goes. apocryphal? I do not know.
Life and corpses are regarded differently elsewhere. A true story.
I was on a boat in Indonesian waters and we found a corpse floating in the water. Eyes were pecked out,it was bloated, had been dead a while.
We radioed an Indonesian naval vessel expecting them to fish it out of the water. As they came close they revved up clean over the body and turned it into instant fishbait. I don't recall anyone rioting over that event!

Stu you are correct I do not know anything about you. A human bio would aid in that. That goes for Iains too.

Iains, you have been traumatized in ways no one in England and USA have. Of course we have been traumatized in different ways in our respective countries. If you say 'I am not a racist but'..."the bodies are not picked up for days", you might sound racist .
In the US, when the police kill and the bodies are not picked up for hours, there are riots. My point is your trauma leads you to think others have not had similar experiences to you. Maybe we are under informed, but if you fall for blacklisted news, so are you.

Stu your point is well taken but despite your objections a free flow of information is better than censorship that confuses and obfuscates facts further.

Ians, I'm sorry, but I can't quite follow your reasoning: You seem to feel that if we leftist snowflakes were exposed to the massive suffering in Africa and Asia, and if we realized it was the product of global turbocapitalism, facilitated by CIA assassinations and the like, the scales would fall from our eyes and we would embrace the right-wing position of yourself and Jon Rappoport.

Frankly, this does not seem likely: There must be some missing steps that people can mentally supply who are familiar with your arguments. I'm not, so help me out here.

As I read the Rappoport piece, one point struck me as anomalous. He addresses the suffering Africans thus:

"You do care about medical teams that sweep through the neighborhood and vaccinate everyone, because you?ve seen adults and children die after the shots."

Looking around, I find that Rappoport believes, among other interesting things, that diseases are caused not by germs, but instead--not in addition--by the inability of a weakened body to resist them. In particular, AIDS is not caused by HIV, but rather by "viral inhibitors like AZT."

Is this part of the overall program as well?

:Your problem is you live in a cocoon, carefully fed a massaged narrative concerning events outside your own count"

You know nothing about me, don't know where I've been or what I've seen.

I know I've spent 18 years on this forum and know a troll when I see one, and you are one Iains. Not since Martin Gibson has there been such a shameless poltroon. You post that crap to justify racism and then feign sophistication and insight when called out on it. You're talking shit and can't disguise that, you posted nastiness disguised and you are still talking it up.


"Unless one has travelled and seen for oneself the deprivation in, say, Africa, one can't comment on what sort of countries are found there."

Ridiculous argument; you have to have been to Mars to comment on the chemical composition of the Martian soil? Have to have travelled to the Mesozoic to be able to comment on the skin colouration of a dinosaur? The only way to be able to review and interpret evidence is to gather it first hand? You live by that rule do you? How the fuck do you know the moon isn't made of cheese?

The countries Trump insulted are full of wonderful, resourceful and intelligent people who are forging a new future out from under the colonial jackboot; the same jackboot that produces the sort of shite that Rappoport wrote in Iain's link, poorly constructed posts reeking of condescension and white superiority. The very idea that some idiot right-wing journo in the US understands the needs of the people in these countries and is telling them in such a manner is staggeringly arrogant; that's white entitlement right there. Of course there are massive problems, but saying these countries are shitholes and then supporting that is disingenuous, insulting, ignorant and racist. I'll take my cue from those Trump and Iains insult, as the people from those countries are not so chuffed to hear them described as shitholes. Read the article again. Understand the subtext.

Let these people win or thunder against them. Support posts linking to that sort of nastiness and you become part of the problem, abandoning reason and decency to kowtow to someone who only wants to drive division and hatred.

I suppose you would regard "calling a spade a spade" a racist statement.
Your problem is you live in a cocoon, carefully fed a massaged narrative concerning events outside your own country.
Get out, travel around and give me a synonym for shithole that does not upset your sensibilities.
You are a prime example of a snowflake isolated from reality in your comfortable western lifestyle. No doubt you would be the first to whine should your local supermarket run out of basics. Go take a hike for a few months around a third world country where corpses may lie by the side of the road for days, go see firsthand what is being discussed, go look at all the young kids with no future, eyes crawling with flies, dressed in rags,if anything at all and wondering if they will eat anything that day. Go inspect the slums created by people forced from the land, go look at a river where they take water for drinking, wash clothes and defecate all within a stones throw of one another.
   I suspect you only read the opening and carefully ignored all the negative prefixes. It seems a pretty accurate summary to me.
What firsthand experience do you have?
Seems to me it paints a reasonably accurate portrayal of those unfortunates at the bottom of the heap. I think it could go a lot further on the politics of how the present situation arose in these countries but in many cases this would mean accepting that westerners(mainly CIA) have engineered regime change here there and everywhere. These changes have been largely to benefit globalism, increase big business profits all at the expense of the little people. Of course watching TV, driving around, using the latest electronic gadgets has nothing to do with the sorry situation in countries thousands of miles away has it. The fact that you pay a diminished price for these western toys at the expense of others peoples quality of life, if not literally their lives in some cases, is of no concern to you.

So Iains post above is part of the reason why I haven't posted to Mudcat for the last few weeks. The link in Iain's post is to an article on a right-wing website, written by a man called John Rappoport, a right-wing conspiracy theorist wanker who posts all sort of idiotic nonsense on his website: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2018/01/13/trump-and-his-shthole-remark-the-story-nobody-is-talking-about/

Iain's article is as foul a piece of racism and misrepresentation as it's possible to get; the sort of vicious, spiteful bile that fans the flames of hatred and promotes the agenda of those who wish rule based on their twisted beliefs about race and the innate superiority of themselves and the pedlars of this inaccurate nastiness, the likes of Farage and Trump. These people are just nasty. Iains is a nasty piece of work.

In recent months this forum has increasingly given voice to the likes of Iain's, they have free reign to peddle this filth without challenge from the mods. This is of course the way that society is going, but letting this sort of link be posted is not only unacceptable, it shows how far standards have fallen on Mudcat. There is no debate anymore, only an echo chamber for those provoked into apoplectic anger by the likes of Iains, who obviously gets his yah-yahs from raging people up.

It's wearing to be exposed to the likes if Iains and his ilk; their wilful and vicious provocations make every thread a war zone, rob any nuance from the discussion and encourage fractiousness and anxiety. I'm done with this shit, I don't want to spend my time with racists c*nts like Iains, and if the mods had any mettle they'd ban his sort from the forum for posting this crap. They're turning the world into a shithole of their making, and trying to drag us all down . The fact Iains et al can link to appalling, nasty and inaccurate crap like that without fear of being sanctioned tells us everything we need to know about how their plan is working.

"Dunno if it's been said here already, but the issue here is not the crudity. It's the racism it was used to express, and the policies flowing from that which exemplify Systemic Racism."

It's been in the background but insufficiently stressed, I feel, that Trump was employing this language in suggesting a return to US 1920-1965 policies limiting immigration essentially to northern Europeans (70% from England, Ireland, and Germany alone).

I'd suggest "shithole" is an objective robust descriptive word..

unless mouthed as a sneering perjorative term by a rich white racist fukwit...

A person with a shred of decency would simply say, "I'm sorry; I shouldn't have said that."
