    And that's what I'm asking. You see, before today, before that very post right above yours, I have never posted in this thread. So at what point, I might ask, could I have said anything like that?
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.

    You don't have to be so blatant about it. Things won't be good once they're onto us.

    Err, yeah, so about these lazy locals and their rich, fertile soil which is oozing out precious gemstones... now that I'm here, I just have to try playing the other side and seeing what sort of defense I can do. Everyone says, "they're lazy", "they don't work hard, they choose to live in ignorance, and they are stupid." Ok, well I can live with that. I see why you say it too. I mean, the evidence is there, isn't it? There are people there, sitting around on their thumbs, dieing, and they aren't doing a thing about it. So first, I just want to take a step back and state something that's obvious. It can't be all of them, right? Natural selection decrees that the fittest survive, and I'm going to stretch that here and say that the ones sitting around refusing to sell their goats and what not, those guys aren't the ones doing the surviving. Am I right? Then within that population, is the group that is going out, seeking education, getting the degrees necessary to throw off the shackles of ignorance and apathy. It's got to exist, right? Otherwise the colleges there would have fallen apart with no one attending.

    I mean, India has some slums, and because of the way the media always chooses to portray us, you'd think the place is one big slum, from one end to the other. But it isn't like that! And it hurts to know that some people believe that, just because of some shitty reporter bias.

    Actually, I saw bride and prejudice; I think India is a pretty nice place. Well, I've always thought India is a pretty cool place. It's very beautiful too. Actually, I still think Africa is a pretty cool place and is very beautiful.

    Take a look at this:
    Equally adamant, the films supporters point out tragic corruption such as that depicted in a Washington Post article from December 2000 , wherein a clinical trial conducted by Pfizer in Nigeria in 1996 allegedly used children to test Trovan, which had been proven efficacious in adults but not in children. In turn, critics of the movie point out that a company still has no profit motive in purposely developing a dangerous drug, particularly in light of the lawsuits that would result in the West. Other critics point to pro-Third World measures that pharmaceutical companies have enacted, such as "Merck's Gift," wherein billions of free drugs were donated to cure River Blindness in Africa , or Pfizer's gift of free/discounted fluconazole and other drugs in AIDS-ravaged South Africa , or GSK's development of a treatment for chloroquine-resistant malaria, despite the lack of profit potential . Sonia Shah, a very vocal critic of the drug industry and an investigative reporter describes a more realistic portrait of the ethical dilemmas facing the industry and the developing world, as published in The Nation.
    The movie Constant Gardener is based on similar events that are/have taking/taken place in Africa. the pharmaceutical giants chooses Africa as their testing ground because it's cheaper for them, Over in the U.S you have to pay testers to test your untested medicine. In Africa, it's practically free, they don't have to worry about Lawsuits.
