In the past week i have finished reading "Black Man's Burden," "China Safari," "Escape from Rwanda," and "Dead Aid." My favorite book of the group was Dead Aid as it made a lot of sense and was very practical and realistic. I wish someone would make the call that Aid would be cut off in five years so the governments would start to make the changes to become self sufficient. It's not like the vast majority of Africans see any benefit from the Aid their countries receive anyways. It also bugs me that celebrities like Bono further their careers by promoting Africa- especially by hawking Louis Viutton "African" bags that the average African couldn't afford by saving for five years!
