It's not just apples and oranges.
I'm an American expat in Singapore. I visted
Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Nepal . Been to Costa RIca,
Mexico and Ecuador. There are alot of
people being exploited, and abused in Asia and South
America, Central America. I don't see how you can
single out Black American history as different.
There's a sad fact here in Singapore, and that's
Burmese girls being used in brothels. Some of these
girls were tricked, some kidnapped, some even sold
by their own relatives. It's human tragedy. I know
that Blacks have been exploited in the USA; but it's
unfortunately something not unique. It's everywhere.
You can't say one act of human tragedy is worth more
sympathy than the other. It's all ugly. It's just something
in human nature. A dark negative part of the human
condition. Look at Nepal...there are small tribes
exploiting other smaller tribes.
