Blame for Africa’s modern-day ills can be laid squarely at the feet of two oppressors: white people and black people. Europeans’ systematic rape of sub-Saharan Africa’s resources, territory, and slaves cast the continent into centuries of misery. But when colonialism collapsed in the mid 20th century, many local black leaders thought, ‘Hmmm….if the white man got rich and powerful by turning my homeland into an unrecognizable husk of sewage and mass grave, maybe I can, too!’
