Droughts, famines, & racism

They’re reporting a drought in southern France, the worst in over a decade. California & Texas just went through droughts too & not a single death was reported from famine in those places. Supermarkets were filled to the rafters.

Without getting into the economic policies leading to ecological ruin in Africa, we’d sure like to know why every time there’s a drought in an African country, like Somalia a few months ago, hundreds of thousands die from famine?

If people were dropping dead from famine in France, California, or Texas there would an international clamor for food relief.

But wait a second. Every summer when US schools let out & the free lunch programs end, there are thousands of poor kids in the cities dumpster diving for garbage to eat. Especially since Clinton’s welfare destruction in the early 90s.

Do you think racism could be involved?
