    They get better due to medicine, dont know whether you've ever heard of this but its a chemical based solution to certain diseases and allows people who wouldnt normally survive to survive. They often bread also before they go into hospital allowing many genetically transfered diseases to surivive. Its good to know that you would kill all the people with sickle cell anemia or stop them for breading. So humane.
    I don't mind if healthy people, that get sick, get treated and get well again. How could I object to that? Lets not get into this, it's a whole other thread (feel free to start it if you want).

    It's in the interest of the human race that the strongest survive.

    For all the people that like to make white people feel guilty about the slave trade(indeed we are reminded during black history mounth every year) just remember that black people made white people slaves before we did it to them.

    Not that I'm jumping into the debate, but interestingly, the word "Slave" is decended from the name of the Slavic ethnic group - the eastern Europeans. They were enslaved and transported all over the place by the Islamic empires.

    on the contrary, i can read and write to a very decent standard.

    that'll be Uneducated.

    im not turning the other cheek. for the entire thread ive been saying we should be helping to improve our country.
    How much money is wasted in the BBC? Loads. Blue peter need a new studio- wait- there's another African dead. The money isn't spent well here either and yes, help britain - but what about Africa? Help them too for they are dying NOW.

    indeed. im sure you'll also know africa benefited a lot from the empires of many european countries including britain.
    Oh yeah. They really took pleasure out of the whites, storming into their country and ruining their culture.

    Why go to bed? You wont be able to sleep... all those africans dying while you sleep there in your goosedown bed how selfish of you :mad:

    Andrew
    No I couldn't sleep very well. I'm really surprized that all these adults are completely gormless. It sickens me and make me feel alienated - that's if the majority of Britain think as you do... which I seriously doubt. I am selfish, to turn away from reality as I do at times. Reality is not going to the pub to wash away your sorrows or have a pint with you mates. Reality is horrible. Poverty. Oppression. Greed. There are many things that help you turn away from reality, including the media (soaps, movies, etc.) and shopping (many people feel obliged to buy expensive things they do not need). But I did have homework, so I was tired enough to fall instantly to sleep.

    So what you're ultimately saying is you're never going to be able to enjoy life, because somewhere in some remote corner of the world someone will be suffering?

    So? That's because the white slaves were not the topic at that precise moment - or people are not aware of oppressed whites in Zimbabwe. Same with the twin towers. We had a minute silence for the dead. What about the ones in Isreal and Palestine?

    Yes because they keep wasting the money we send them, we managed to rebuild europe after WW2 with a 6th of the money we have sent them, its not our fault that their politicians are rubbish.

    No, I can enjoy myself - but doesn't it affect you? Suffering? If you experienced malnutrition and dehydration and no proper roof over your head, you would be asking for the British aid workers. They are born into povery and it is not their fault. When I grow up, I'm going to adopt five african kids and they are going to go to medical school - totally smashing the BNP's ambition to preserve western supremacy. Asian mother, black kids - cool! I am fine, I can sleep and be happy - whilst caring. At least I KNOW and aknowledge povery. You make it seem as there is nothing to worry about and that everything's fine.

    surely if half the money gets thro and manages to save a a few million lives that is better than none getting throu because we didnt send any?

    No, exactly. The point I was trying to make was that we cannot aknowledge every historical tradjedy at the same time.

    No. They need to sort themselves out and stop relying on the West to send them money. What incentive do they have to pull themselves out of the mess they're in if we keep sending them aid? If anything it was in their interest not to sort themselves out, otherwise the massive debts they'd built up wouldn't have been written off recently.

    Prehaps you would like to tell me what they have got to do "to sort themselves out"? and quite how they are meant to do it with no internation support?
