Dearest Africa, Stop Culturally Appropriating Our Aid Money…

Furious students brand African-themed dinner RACIST for using words from the Lion King

CAMBRIDGE University students have boycotted an African-themed dinner held in a hall “filled with portraits of white people” after branding it racist.

Activist students also lashed out at the evening’s menu, claiming it tried “to reduce an entire continent into three courses”.

The formal meal, which took inspiration from Senegal, Morocco, South Africa and Nigeria, allegedly did not have blessing from the university’s African Society.

Student Alice Davidson said: “Perhaps if the initiative had come from members of the African Society Cambridge University themselves, who could then determine the menu and terms of cultural exchange rather than being invited as a token afterthought.

    End all aid to Africa now.
    There is nothing moral about it and all you are doing is perpetrating misery.

    • It is a corrupt sinkhole.

      Agreed. Their problems are political, social, and cultural, not financial.

    • UCSPanther

      They need to work out their problems and develop on their own. That’s the only way that they will get a shot at building working societies and nations.

      Europeans had to do it the hard way, and Africans should do it too.

        Isn’t them trying to adapt our culture, cultural appropriation?

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Uh oh!

      All government foreign aid should cease. I don’t have a problem with private groups or charities who want to “aid”, but governments have no business in the field. After all they are taking money from their own productive citizens and giving it out without the consent of the same citizens.

  • Tom Forsythe

    Cultural Appropriation is a Western concept. Africans should stop appropriating it.

    • Tom Forsythe

      They should, however, appropriate things like property rights, educational standards, and the rule of law.

    • Heh;)

  • Ed

    Wouldn’t their argument be stronger, if they stopped expressing it in English? C’mon people. Back to ooga booga and we’ll take you seriously. And for heaven’s sake stop wearing clothes!

    The real problem is that these students didn’t get to collect jizyya out of the kafirs.

    General Zateb Kazim ” Don’t worry . It’s Africa. Nobody cares about Africa. From the movie Sahara. I spent 2 years living in Africa and when I saw this movie years later I told my family no line has ever described Africa better. Nobody not even the Africans care. Ever since those two years on the dark continent I have stopped caring also.

    • Alain

      Lived there even longer in Senegal and travelled all over through many other countries including Arab ones. I concur with what you found. Also I might add that I saw first hand all kinds of foreign aid from different Western governments and how none of it accomplished anything more than padding the foreign bank accounts of the African rulers and this friends.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Could not have expressed it better myself. I spent a long nine months in what is now South Sudan. Awful!

  • Africa is a very diverse continent, not that I would expect leftists to know that.

    Foreign aid has actually hindered development in Africa. A new approach must be taken.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I’ll go one better and say that the introduction of food, potable water, and Westren medicine has exploded Africa’s population to something roughly 10 to 15 -times what the continant’s historic carrying capacity has been.
      Once that horrific realization sinks in, you know that Africa’s only way out is first through a very dark tunnel.

      • There is nothing wrong with food and water. There is, however, plenty wrong with Africa.

        • Ford Prefect

          To true. Rhodesia was the bread basket of Africa. Zimbabwe – same place I know you know but just in case – is a crap hole. Now the geography did not change the people changed. The food is still there they just do not want it bad enough.

          • The Zimbabweans pushed out the farmers.

            I would say reap but one sows but nothing is sown, so…

  • Gary

    Look what the American Blacks did to Liberia when they insisted it was going to be a success story run by Blacks. They did have whitey to blame when they made in just another African hell-hole.

    lets see how long Afro Americans can go without using any of the Invention or creations by white people.

    No ac power to run their home
    No Micro wave ovens
    No appliances to cook or store food
    No clean water
    No dial phone or WiFi phone
    No Computers, Air plane travel , cars, radio , record player, TV , shaving razors , hair dryer, dental work , motor cycles, velcro , zippers and on and on down the list.
    They want all the benefits of white societies and invention without having to do the work to invent something and make their own society .

    It’s more like White-envy while muslims suffer from Infidel-Envy because islam hasn’t produced anything for about 500 years and muslims must rely on the filthy unbelievers for jobs and welfare.
    How sad that India now the TADA Auto Company that bought Jaguar and Land Rover to add to their own cars.

    Where’s the Muhammad 500-S 4 door V8 luxury car, or the Ahmed 1500 pick-up truck ???????
    It must be tough to wake up and be in the 14th century for ever where you rely on infidels.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      If you make these kinds of analogies to SJW’s they merely spit back that “only white people have the power”, blah, blah, blah, so you can’t accuse non-whites of “cultural appropriation” for using things that white people invented or created. Pointing out the fact that “power” is hardly limited in this world to white people, eg. China’s abuse of Tibet, genocide in the South Sudan, etc., is pointless. You can’t argue with these people because they are incapable of thinking logically.

        ” … they are incapable of thinking logically …”
        Indeed, they’re so addled by the indoctrination they’ve received in place of proper education they can’t think logically. They’d never buy the trendy left-wing horseshit they do if they could. Truly a ruined generation. A horrible situation.

      • Alain

        The reason they are incapable of thinking logically or differently is religious zeal. Yes, they are religious zealots with their own religious doctrine and tenets, and even another inquisition.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      ” islam hasn’t produced anything…” fify 😉
