    Why do some Somalis claim to not be Arabs?

    ...sad is when I'm walking around bookshops and libraries. You have entire walls and sections dedicated to the history and culture of China, India, USA, Britain, Japan etc. and a tiny corner dedicated to the entire continent of Africa. Makes me ashamed.:gucciwhat::meleshame:

    I was just watching a documentary...

    Aid in reverse: how poor countries develop rich countries

    We have long been told a compelling story about the relationship between rich countries and poor countries.
