Jim Carroll BS: Colonial Sins (32) RE: BS: Colonial Sins 24 Jun 20


I'd love to have seen central and South Africa Sen - I made the north several times - never really come down from our two-week trip up the Nile
The overwhelming impression I was left with each tome was of a friendly, hospitable people
I sered my apprenticeship on the Liverpool dock - in those days, many of the crews still had tribal markings - again, you were left with the feeling of friendly, usually gregarious people when they were allowed to be
One of the great advantages o having lived in three of Britain's largest cities was it gave you a chance to meet people from everywhere
In my opinion, much of the poverty in these countries, not just Africa, is predatory Western greed

That's a fascinating lump of information Acorn - many thanks
Just prior to when it began, in 1631, the village of Baltimore, in West Cork was raided by Barbary Pirates, the inhabitants kidnapped and enslaved   
There's a fascinatint (unfortunately not-very-well-written) book entitled 'The Stolen Village', describing it - worth a read anyway
