We stopped funding space stuff because of shit like picrel. Don't deny it.
It was multiple times cheaper to rebuild Europe post-WWII than it was to keep Africa running post-colonialism, not to mention all that the USA has spent on welfare for the perpetual underclass that is its African Diaspora population.
I did some inflation adjustments and we could have funded a fucking space colony with the money we spent on both actual Africans and African-Americans.
>>
>>1056673
>money we spent on both actual Africans
What a brainlet take. Countries that give money to Africa earn tenfold on it in cheap resources and as market outlets. Do you seriously think the political-financial systems of the world are some sort of a fucking charity? I can't believe I'm siding with a Robbie here, but your take is just as shit.

Yes instead of building niggers a well so that they don't die next dry spell and paying them 3 dollars a month, it would be much cheaper and simpler to just transport white people half a world, create livable living conditions for them, convince them to migrate to Malaria Coast when they have better job opportunities at home and defend them from the locals. You're so dumb it's astounding.

The world has spent the equivalent of twenty Marshall Plans on Africa. It's still 90% shithole and hasn't repaid a fucking penny's worth of what's been dumped into it.

Yes, nobody cares, not me, not people who donated the money. Maybe you misunderstood, and think I'm implying that the goal of all this money for schools was to actually build schools? No, it was meant to afford local warlord some weapons so that he stays loyal to America or China and is not replaced by one loyal to Soviets or France. Or at least doesn't start a genocide so that bananas keep coming to European grocery stores.
>and hasn't repaid a fucking penny's worth of what's been dumped into it

And? What does that have to do with anything? If you have been a cotton trader that's been trading since decolonization ended, your opinion would matter.

You're fucking retarded if you think the west just aids Africa to "babysit" them out of the goodness of their bleeding hearts. It's the same thing that China does, only China is honest about it. It's objectively a great plan too; there is infinitely more wealth in the world then there was prior to decolonization. Maybe not for you; but nobody gives a shit about you or spreading your faggot genes across the stars.
>>

It's just retarded napkin math. They look at the value of 300 billion in grain or medicine etc and think the government has the power to command those companies to make fantasy jet fuel instead or something. A more compelling argument would be "why are we paying for food and healthcare in x country instead of here" but that would involve giving food and safety to American blacks too so that's not okay lol

Unironically, most of Africa is under a population bubble, and when it pops there's going to be a humanitarian disaster of untold proportions, literal biblical type shit.
>>
>>1058955
My claims are that Africa is a huge exporter of cheap raw resources and rare earth minerals, this has been achieved mainly through international aid and the collective West in general and the US in particular has earned on it's investment.
The only responses I've got to this are: 'y-you're a commie' which deserves no more detailed response than 'LMAO', 'computers are made in China' to which I nudged the simpleton to find out what computers are made of and where are those minerals extracted, and 'But no African country is number 1 exporter of resources you claim' to which I've responded that, yes, contributing i.e. 12% of world production in case of coffee has a huge effect on the market. If you're so functionally illiterate you cannot read this, or so dumb you can't realize this on your own, you deserve no further response than 'you're retarded'.
>>
>>1058988
Africa doesn't produce anything by themselves except slave labor in a resource rich region of the earth that was never properly exploited for those resources. If all the niggers were gone, all the functioning countries would colonize it and start building it up as real countries. Niggers are negative opportunity cost on the whole world at best.
Money goes to a warlord, he makes sure his slaves harvest or mine some basic resource. Everything else is handled by whites or chinese people, from transport and logistics to actually bringing it to market somewhere. That's not exporting anything, that's just providing slave labor.

I think you're trying to move goalposts, but as you're inadvertendly agreeing with me, I accept your tear-laden concession.
>That's not exporting anything, that's just providing slave labor.
Are you still trying to argue, by twisting words out of their meanings this time? Export is selling from one country to another, no matter who provides logistics.

>>

>Now I know you're trolling.
Not him, but I legitimately don’t understand why people say that.
Every single 19th century anthropologist that went to Africa commented on their farming techniques, crops etc, and these guys were far from being modern day bleeding heart liberal.
Also, about NASA and space exploration, most of the shit that is allowing it to sort of make a comeback today was straight up impossible until the 2000s because of technological limitations(even the budget argument falls flat because even in the 60s surge it was only like 50% bigger than the modern values).

It's necessary to make more niggers who extract more resources, as well as keep those already alive from dying.
