Its certainly not this ignorant and condescending reason put forward by Booker Rising :
It could be that African journalists and academics skew Marxist, and thus are loathe to consider such a pro-capitalist book. Racial issues could be an issue as well. Some black folks do believe that "the white man's ice is colder", or some such old-school adage..The year is 2009 and people still write things like this. The point is that Dead Aid was written for a specific X-Factor / American idol western generation much devoid of substance or experience of the problems facing our continent. To suggest that we suffer from some racial inferiority in our assessment, well is just foolish.
N.B : This is certainly the last time I quote Booker Rising on this website. I couldn't help alert readers of some of the ignorance that permeates the blogosophere that discusses "African issues".
