China is Turning Africa into its Own Economic Colony

Published

on

Michael Snyder of TheMostImportantNews.com exposed China’s ambitions in Africa.

Africa has historically been a target for Islamic and European colonizers.

Now, China wants to assume this role as a colonizer, but with a different twist. Instead of conquering Africa using military force, it plans on using economic arrangements instead.

As of today, there are more than 10,000 Chinese-owned firms with operations in Africa. Snyder asserts that everymajor road, bridge, railway and skyscraper is being built by the Chinese.”

In order to acquire such infrastructure, many African nations have had to go into significant debt, leaving China in an advantageous position.

Although there is some validity to China exploiting this relation for economic gain, Forbes pointed out that China’s moves in Africa are about turning Africa into another Chinese continent.”

According to certain estimates, about two million Chinese citizens are already living in Africa.

China has taken its famous “special economic zones” and transplanted them to Africa. One of these zones has been placed right next to Lagos, Nigeria. These cities act as investor friendly economic jurisdictions based on the model that was employed in the Chinese city of Shenzhen in the 1980s.

Snyder noted that “In these ‘special economic zones’, you will find Chinese factories staffed with Chinese managers that are supervising Chinese workers that are using Chinese equipment to make their products.”

China is also Africa’s largest trading partner, with Sino-African trade rounding out at $200 billion per year. McKinsey reports that over 10,000 Chinese-owned firms are present in the African continent and the value of Chinese business in the continent since 2005 is valued at more than $2 trillion. $300 billion in investment is currently on the table.

Although China has pivoted since its Maoist days, it is using soft power in a way that projects its power on an expansionary basis.

The U.S. will need to get out of its quagmires in the Middle East and re-focus its foreign policy by containing China through as many diplomatic means as possible.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
