You make it sound like we doing a favour when it's our duty

When did it become our duty.
We did our duty in 1945 to be where we are.
If these people haven’t got the balls to get their country back and prosperous then maybe we should violently help them with bombs and bullets.
How’s that for doing our duty!!!!!

I don’t like the bloke and think he is anti white or at least internally but...
He has a point.
Why should white liberals be at the front of ethnic groups and their issues.
Basically subconsciously taking control when the colour of the cause should be the head of it.
Malcom x said the same thing and was accused of being racist way back then.
Being in control is the fundamental description of slavery and by snatching this away is a mild form of the same thing.
The west have tried to help in Africa and because the upper echelons of their governments know this they don’t help or lift a finger and keep taking.
We should really back off and let these populations sort out their own problems. Whether they can at the moment is questionable but in time it will get sorted.
It might take years and many lives but it is clear whatever we are doing is perpetuating and sanctioning the bad governance.

Really my other half her mother is 89,and she can remember doing things at school to help Africa.


So how long do we give it?.

 


always a Norwood boy, where ever I live.

I agree with David Lammy and we should respect his wishes that the "world doesn't need any more white saviours" by withdrawing the £1billion of aid per annum that we give Africa.

We should also strip Bob Geldof of his KBE

.........and deport the clown.

 


Pro USA & Israel

I believe that the general point about celebrity p*** is correct and is being over shadowed by the racist implication.

Far too many celebs virtue signal an issue and then leave someone else to do something about it. I have not seen the program nor do I know anything about Stacy Dooley to know if she is guilty of this.

However people like Lilly Allen are. She had a day trip to Calais with a BBC film crew wept in the migrant camp apologised on behalf of the nation and then buggered off back home all to promote her latest album.

The BBC should also think about this. It decided to send a film crew for a good cause (Comic Relief) well why do you need a celebrity why not ask someone who works in that field and has a track record e.g. a local or a charity relief worker. The media is obsessed with celebrities you don't need them for every TV show and we didn't in the past.*

As for helping Africans we need to allow them free trade access so they can export their way out of poverty.

Lammy may have highlighted this because she is white but I would say the same about Lenny Henry. Unless a celeb has a good track record e.g. Elton John and Aids
they should leave well alone to those who do.

*In the past the BBC and others would find an expert on a topic many of whom then became celebrities because of their personalities e.g. Patrick Moore.

If this was turned on its head and Boris Johnson had made a comment about Lenny Henry doing similar, I'd have expected cries of 'racism' from all quarters.

I'm pleased Dooley is standing up for the cause rather than the purile comments

Boris Johnson of 'piccaninnies' and 'watermelom smile' fame? He's no stranger to unfortunate racial slants and slurs, and so is a bad example to use.

This story is the front page of the BBC website so it's hardly viewed as a free pass for Lammy, nor should it be.

In life I think when you do a good thing, you deserve to be credited as such. I can understand why people roll eyes at celebrities heading off to the third world, but I don't question how genuine Dooley's concern is or see it as fair game to turn it into a ridiculous 'whiteness' issue and racist attack on her.

Her response to it was classy. It deal with the individual and his comments to her. It wasn't used to push cheap racial points in return or to gee people up. That's partly the trouble here. When I saw this article I knew it would get posted here, and when I saw the story about 'no blacks' being sprayed onto the doors of Salford flats I knew it absolutely wouldn't. No doubt there's a largely black forum somewhere where people are firing each other up about that in the same way. Neither take is particularly healthy, but at least Dooley's dignified response was.

The way kids are being knocked out isn’t our fault.
Ignorance about pregnancy and lack of effort to avoid it isn’t an excuse.
There was a big thing about contraception and they are educated enough to know how babies are made.
Especially as you know there is every chance your kid is going to die a slow and sad death.
It’s the same here with having kids but the reason here is a lot about the benefits and housing.
I don’t agree but sort of get it.
Why doesn’t the left and all the bleeding heart brigade pilot some of these ideas instead of blaming all but the protagonists of their own problems.


A video I saw recently that explained a lot of this to me is here.

We don't owe anyone anything.

Africans had thousands of years to get their act together and they became the victims of imperialism, just as we did via the Romans, because Europeans developed superior technologies and societies.

That is the reality of human existence.

You could have always posted it yourself.

No one will ever make a film like that any time soon.

That is 'progress'.

Nigeria has been independent for nearly 60 years - and you only need to look at last weeks presidential election to see how deep the corruption is.
