Phoney Kony 2012 : Nabil Goes in [EP4]

'It is clear that the United States of America are intent on re-colonising Africa, directly and militarily, and the 'Kony 2012' video is a cleverly produced piece of propaganda to further this aim. Interestingly, when reading about the history of the British Empire, it becomes clear that the language has not changed much in the last few hundred years, and neither has people's susceptibility to it. The basic narrative being: poor African black people really need us civilised white people to help sort their problems out for them. No matter how many millions of view a white North American man can achieve with a multi-million dollar budget, I am not going to agree with an increased US military presence in Africa.'
