Bonum Certa Men Certa

Africans Insulted by Philanthrocapitalism

Gates at Harper's Magazine



Summary: Genuine African blogs explain that they wish not to be treated like they are desperate for American corporations and aristocrats to 'save' them

MAKING MONEY by pretending to help the poor is one of the specialities of the Gates Foundation.



Bill Gates is hijacking the voice of Africans to impose negative things on them. We've covered this in posts such as:

Here is an African voice explaining why this is wrong.

Society has a very one dimentional conversation about privilege. Looking at me from an American perspective, it would be easy to assume that I hold no privilege. I’m Black, a woman, from the third world. All these things are true and indeed if you were to base your evaluation of me on popular media images of Africans and particularly African women, I’m a miserable creature indeed. However, if you take seriously Chimamanda Achidie’s call for a balance of stories you might take a different perspective of me. As an educated, professor of Politics at an American university, I do wield considerable class, educational and other privileges relative to the rest of the world’s population. You see, the problem is that society as a whole tends to have very narrow views of privilege. This narrow view of privilege pervades philanthropy as well.


Gates Keppers found this article about rich Americans who treat Africa like it's some kind of a zoo. They are posing for the camera to boast about superiority and alleged generosity. Africans are not stupid and they can see what's wrong with it. As Gates Keppers points out, Bill Gates is sponsoring this, too:

Water First International Date: November 2010 Purpose: for general operating support Amount: $2,500 Term: 1 month Topic: Advocacy & Public Policy Region Served: Global, North America Program: Foundation Grantee Location: Seattle, Washington Grantee Web site: Not available

http://www.gatesfoundation.org/Grants-2010/Pages/Water-First-International-OPP1029939.aspx


"Advocacy & Public Policy" means lobbying and PR. We have already explained this before. How low can one sink? Even the press in African is bought by Gates. Monsanto et al. approve.
