"The progressive is a self-appointed social redeemer, leading a movement to destroy his own society and liberate the masses. This political mission provides him with immense moral indignation and, therefore, moral superiority, dispositions from which, in turn, he derives tremendous emotional gratification. His whole belief system provides him with a sense of belonging, since he has joined other social redeemers, as well as victims, real or imagined, who wait for him to break their chains."

Well that white one on the left is Liberia. The europeans never actually governed the entire region. They still had ports and settlements in what is now called Liberia. The dutch and portuguese called it the pepper coast because of the spices from there. This region was part of europes early ambition to colonize the entire west coast and was where the first moves were made, call it the precursor to colonization. Just because they never governed it doesn't negate the fact that under occupation somewhat by aggressive so-called traders armed with weapons and ultimately evil intentions.
The fact that ruthless Western exploiters wanted its rich diamond, rubber, and timber resources had much to do with destabilizing that area. This is what ultimately led to its current problems.Originally Posted by Zook;

The so called "black culture". There are a few countries with a black majority population that doesn't have high crime rates.
I chose "culture" in poll. In my opinion it is the desecration of the black family, the absence of a father or authoritative figure in the household. My wife teaches in the Bronx. Most of her kids come from a fatherless family, with many different men coming to visit the mother often, if the mother is even around. They often call them aunts and uncles, as weird as that is. What they really are is just the next guy screwing the mother. Many of them are raised by their grandparents who I am sure are boring and old as hell, hence why they spend so much time on the streets. They usually grow up on the streets very young and do what they want, and it usually trouble. Eventually they will end of in jail.
