Africans React To Pictures Of Slums In Madrid, Spain. by LukasPodolski: 1:56pm On Sep 29, 2020
A South African lady posted series of pictures depicting the state of some neighborhood in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, the slums which are no different from the ones here in Africa.

Even the Bible acknowledges that the poor will always be amongst us. The pictures though looks like some parts of Asia like Bangladesh or Indonesia but that's not to say there aren't poor neighborhoods in Europe or America. The question is what's the percentage of people who are living in poverty there unlike in Africa. Look from my personal observation, a lot of these poor guys in sane countries are provided with incentives and social welfare schemes including weekly payments by govt, especially legal residents but some choose to beg in the street with their dogs or pets or sleep by the entrance to malls and bus stations. So let's not look that way but rather demand of our govt a better society and not justify our failed society with what it is like in Europe, America or other climes.

It is no doubt the word "Media" hates anything African and black. It's a great tool of emasculating the truth.

Comparing bananas with apple. Most of the homeless abroad are former junkies, convicts, bankrupt people. Their condition is mostly self inflicted. They many times refuse government help or shelter too. An hardworking african can earn decent wages doing Macdonald or security in those same places. Those oyinbos and others on the streets are not willing to work or get help. They don kolo. Person for here go work for factory or construction site and earn 25k a month. Abeg abeg

To some gorillas having serious challenges as regards complex, even oyibo poo is 100 times more delicious than food in KFCs located in Nigeria.

Most certainly, to those animals, slums like these can only be found in their homes, not obodo oyibo. Pretty sure they will soon be online explaining with the whole of their strengths how Black are blackmailing oyibo.

Your problem is that you lack comprehension and cannot read thoroughly else my comment covered all of that. So don't post nonesense just cos u wanna quote me. We all contribute to discussions to learn not for likes, so grow some brain. You are showing me images as though you don't know there are so many illegal migrants in the developed world who are in the streets.

I don't know about the place the lady shared but but I'm amazed at how Africans rush to defend Europe. Stating facts is one thing but coming up with anything just to defend the continent is another thing entirely. I mean, despite seeing the skin colour, facial outline and apparent hair texture of the people in the pic, they still insist they are Africans from Cameroon and other African countries. What informed this conclusion? Yes, they could be right cause there are Africans that have these looks but seeing some Spanish looking people right in the country of Spain and concluding/insisting they must be Africans and not Spaniards simply cause they are poor is hilarious. Do you guys think you have the monopoly of poverty? Again, I have never been to Europe so I know nothing about the place in the pic but going by the lady's subsequent comments, she seems to be very detailed about the places she's talking about. I don't why why this is unbelievable to many.

Someone above is blaming the people by saying it's self inflicted. Are you saying there are no such poor people in Europe who aren't necessarily into drugs and stuff like that? Being poor is already hurtful enough, being blamed for being poor is sorrowful. This isn't just a couple of homeless peeps like you see downtown in any developed city. This isn't just a ghetto (characterized by the people). This is a slum (characterized by the environment). This is a whole community with men, women and children. They all inflicted this on themselves and somehow decided to come live together? Fact is, there are slums everywhere inhabited by locals. What makes a country better than the other is the number of such slums, how run down they are and the population of people living there.

"There are homeless people in LA" fine.

Now when are you going to start posting pictures of homeless people in LA like the Western media does to Africans?

Why must we always be asslicking them? Didn't they have slums and homeless people (neglecting the ratio) ?

When are you going to start speaking against that, don't you think the homeless people in LA deserves better?

When we show beautiful places in Lagos , enemy of states like you will label them 3D or computer generated pictures abi over edited pictures but theirs (your masters) isn't? Hahaha.

its in the media already. Its not oyinbo that said we should not have a strong media. We have a copy and paste media. We will rather scream George floyd in Nigeria than SARS victims. Is that white man fault Pray for Beirut but not pray for ones that exploded in lagos last week. The reason Africa is portrayed that was is to get more people to donate to charity and aids. Una go just dey open mouth without applying sense. Those places you are showing are not up to 5% of lagos. And cnn regularly shows them too

True but what's the basis of saying they must be Africans? You see a pic of some slum in Europe and what comes to your mind is, if these people are this poor, then they must be Africans. Really? Isn't that tantamount to attributing a heavenly status to Europe?

On a different note, they look alike especially on individual basis but it's still possible to tell a group of Spaniards from a group of Moroccans. Again, Mediterranean Spaniards don't generally have that North African look. You'd probably get this detail when you come close.

Bro why are u stressing ur self over that guy...

That man is the owner of Run away from ur father's land Plc and the author of the bestselling book "How to enjoy the fruits of another mans labour"

Noticed the way he jumped to their defence calling them gypsies and not wanting to accept government help

Assuming this pic was abt Nigeria , he'd have added it to his 12462 reasons to hate being a Nigerian and leave ur father's land

Just recently, when a foreign born Nigerian wanted to invest in the country, the only thing he could tell him is that he should go to Rwanda because he'll not succeed in Nigeria...

This same person, when u ask him to list out the problems of Nigeria will be quick to add and blame the govt for unemployment whereas he Jus drove a way a potential foreign investor..

Countries are looking for investors, This one dey drive the one wey dey Come hin side

Las Las na we dey do ourselves...

Someone said if they take all Nigerians to Europe and bring Europeans to Nigeria, Europe will deprecated greatly and Nigerians will be dying to come to Nigeria...

Yes... No doubt Nigeria is bad but it is a clear example of how the people in this country are,.. if majority of us are good, the country will be better but it's not, that's why we are where we are...

Well, I don't know about Africa but I know North America has its own share of slums especially the US and Mexico (Canada is better off in this regards). Besides, that wasn't the bone of contention. I was asking why these guys would quickly conclude and insist the people in the pic must be Africans even when the slum is in Europe.

ask yourself is the country even friendly to investors. I once worked in the treasury department of a bank in Nigeria. It is always hard for investors to move their money back home unless they do shady deals like Lebanese and Indians. I bring in 1m usd to invest in Nigeria. When its time to recoup my money naira don lose value. 306 per dollar will now be 383. To even access 383 na war with cbn then i have to go buy from aboki at 465. Is that not madness. You open factory and your staff begin to steal materials and chemicals. Abeg no sane investor should come here
