Don`t beat yourself up, brother. Look at what the founding fathers of Africa tried to do to industrialize their economies. Look at Sankara, just 4 years in government and he and the Burkinabe nation achieved miracles. Then he was assassinated. The Empire has underdeveloped Africa to keep her a raw materials market for the North. Things are changing now because China want to help, not to loot Africa, but to build an equal partnership. The IMF is the problem, not the people or governments of Africa.
