U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attended an African summit in Addis Adaba, Ethiopia and gave a history lecture to over 100 diplomats in attendance. He said African history can best be described as "revenge and resentment." He instructed African leaders to abandon their history to embrace "democracy."
According to the Houston Chronicle, "This is up to the will of the people, and the will of leaders," Kerry told about 100 diplomats and local activists gathered at an environmentally friendly tukul hut atop a hilltop in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital. "We need to make certain that we grab the choice that seizes the future, and we need to refuse to be dragged back into the past." He added: "I have absolutely no doubt that this could be an inflection point for the new Africa, a time and a place where Africans bend the arc of history toward reform, and not retribution; toward peace and prosperity, not revenge and resentment."
John 'Swift Boat' Kerry denounced Africa's rich history as backwards. he also ordered African governments to build eco-friendly huts for all Africans.
As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "Traveling from lush green hilltops to hot dusty roads and seaside ports, U.S. Secretary of State asked African nations last week to make a choice: Choose democracy. Embrace economic stability. Reject violence, and move people into the modern world."
Kerry added that Africans lack, "common purpose, to address our challenges."
