Africa: exploiting Africa's beauty and pain

waxspell considers movies such as Hotel Rwanda and The Last King of Scotland a form of exploitation: It is a dismay to see how these money hungry opportunists take advantage of our painful history and make it their gain! How dare we celebrate such insensitivity without questioning it? Can we (Africa and all those who condemn such) do something to prevent folks form demeaning history.

  • Thanks, Ian. I have corrected it.

  • Many African women are secretly suffering removal of hair attachments,braids, braiding hair, extensions and add-on hair, from using hair glue, weaves and dreadlocks that damaged all their hair. They are even hiding their baldness from their husbands.
