What should we do (if anything) about the poor. I'm tired of seeing poor people.
Re-assess our ides on 'economics' and the measurement of an individuals success by the amount of money he accumulates. It seems to me that the amount of money accumulated by individuals is approx. inversely proportional to their contribution to society.
Whilst we continue to use money as the yardstick for success we stand no chance of dealing with the potential disasters facing the Planet and we will all end up "poor"?

I kinda feel like giving up on Africa, its so backward and any attempt to help seems to get no where.

You've got to ask why no where in Africa has ever developed a proper civilisation. In the sense there is little technology, no indiginous writing system. etc

I believe that it's better for everyone to look after their local area first before comitting to international charities. For example I would rather sponsor a poor disabled childrens charity in my city because i know exaclty where my money is going.

Did I ever say we should help the poor at the expense of the rich?
did i say you did?

however, based on your attempt to pre-empt anything on that i'll assume you think we should. its clearly in your mind...
