“In December 2013, while most people were celebrating “peace on earth, good will toward men,” the U.S. State Department admitted that President Eisenhower authorized the murder of Congo’s first democratically-elected Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba. CIA Chief, Allan Dulles, allocated $100,000 to accomplish the act. Lumumba’s murder has been called the most important assassination of an African in the 20th Century. How do U.S. citizens make up for this to the Congolese people and to Lumumba’s family?”
Although I do not believe this is the fault of the average United States citizens, I do know that we are not taught about the real reasons why Africa is in the condition it is in.
1) I agree with the above comment- that it is not the fault of the average citizen, however, I believe if you were to tell the average citizen- they would probably not care, in the way that, most Western inhabitants have been conditioned into believing African politicians are ‘corrupt’, ‘dictators’ and ‘violent murderers’.
