Why did Africa let Europe cart away?

"Why did Africa let Europe cart away millions of Africa's souls from the continent to the four corners of the wind?

How could Europe lord it over a continent ten times its size?

Why does needy Africa continue to let its wealth meet the needs of those outside its borders and then follow behind with hands outstretched for a loan of the very wealth it let go?

How did we arrive at this, that the best leader is the one that knows how to beg for a share of what he has already given away at the price of a broken tool?

Where is the future of Africa?"
