I'm african and I live in africa, and I think saying that its BS is putting it a bit strong, and making me feel a bit sad.
Parts of africa are really really messed up, and yes, I am sure the people there would just like the world to know about them.
They must feel like the forgotten people of the world, just because they are so poor that no one considers them worth a thought.
By all means, change things in your communities first, before you reach out across the world, but I would hate to think that people would not even want to know about the suffering of others.
People spend millions fighting over oil halfway across the world of each other. I'm sorry. I feel passionate about this. Because I'm african, and the problems on this continent seem insurmountable sometimes.
Ps. If you do come for Kony, please take Robert Mugabe too!
That was a joke. But not really. ;)
