He's saying he's American...not African and if he's going to donate $ its gonna be to his own country. I agree. No disrespect to the tragedies happening over there. We just have our own issues ATM that need to be handled. The USA tax dollar already gives billions in aid to Africa. So there's not a working citizen in the USA that hasn't given $ to africa.

Some might not agree with his actions, but it is his money he can spend it as he pleases.

I agree that he has the right to spend his money the way he likes, but saying "what has Africa done for me?" just doesn't come off very respectable or humble at all. Extremely poor choice of words.

he paid for them didn't he?

But Yeah I agree he shouldnt have said that.

"Love me or hate me it's one or the other. Always has been. Hate my game, hate my swagger, hate my fade-away, my hunger, hate that i'm a veteran, A champion, hate that. Hate it with all your heart, and hate that i'm loved for the exact same reasons." - Kobe

Not much I can say about that. Some folk are not humbled in life.

That's like me saying why should anybody pay for to see your fight? What have you done for me?

Anyway.

A citizen of the universe > over country nationalistic bs. I'd wager even most homeless people have it better than those struggling africans.
