in response to reader comment: Racism versus speaking the truth.

Submitted by Didi (Italy), Oct 27, 2019 at 04:21

Africa and the ME have many beautiful things that have little to do with the West. We're not saviors and the people never wanted colonization.

It is actually racism to make a statement, "All mena men are trash, liars, etc. BC I have been through xyz."

The reality is a lot of men and women from poorer countries will try to scam Westerners if we aren't on our guard. You don't see it as much now in Eastern Europe because of the EU rules of free movement, but go to the the poor areas of Russia, India, Asia, Latin America, and you'll find all kind of "interested" men. Mena men were blessed with good looks, so they have captured the attention quicker. But there are countless stories of women being scammed by others. So sweeping generalizations are racist. That's like me saying bc there are so many racists caucasian people in the US exist, then all caucasian Americans are racists. And most women on here are not racists, but there were comments about why anyone would go to Africa.. that's is an issue. BC Africa is a huge continent great for tourism, history, and getting to know the locals.
