I am sitting in front of the TV watching a special American Idol, Idol gives back(its to raise funds for charities both here in the U.S. and in Africa). It saddens me that on a Global, as well as National level; poverty and AIDS continue to increase at a dramatic rate. There are some countries in Africa that have 1/3 of its population with HIV/AIDS, a third. That is not right. Also in Africa malaria kills kids every 30 seconds, that is ridiculous. The Western nations have an obligation due to the exploitation they caused through colonization to remedy the situation. Due to NAFTA the middle class is disappearing in the U.S. with jobs disappearing and transfer to the Global South. This can anger anyone with a conscious.
