Meh, I can. Looking at the picture of your fat-face makes me wish we were in a technological dark-age that way I never knew you existed. Unfortunately... that`s just not the case. Those people in Africa are lucky in that aspect, thus they go on living. As for me, I died a little inside today.

Ah, how quickly we forget. Zimbabwe used to be called Rhodesia, and it was, for the most part, a British colony ruled by a white minority. It was quite prosperous and actually exported food to the rest of Africa and to Europe.
In 1980 the international community forced them to hold elections allowing the blacks to vote, and they elected Robert Mugabe. He has held power ever since.
The short version: Mugabe stole all the farms from the whites and gave them to his friends, who had no idea how to run them, and here we are today.
It would sure be nice if all the white liberals around the world who were so outraged at white minority rule could send these poor people a few crumbs.
