Savages in Ivory Coast and New Orleans

Comments to an article about the mass killings that followed the election in Ivory Coast last year:

Modern day savagery , plain and simple.

No wonder many Africans look back fondly on the days of Colonization, it was a much more stable period. It truly is a shame because Africa is such a resource rich continent, it's just that the native Africans don't have the mentality to develop and use it to better themselves.

How sad for those poor folks who just wanted a better life.
I know it's a cliche but stories like this remind me of how lucky we are in the US.
It's not luck, it's the mentality of America's founders and present day majority.
Just like comparing St Tammany to Orleans, it's not luck, it's mentality...

@thetruthhurts00 What a novel take on the "savagery" of African people. Can you elaborate on their physiological and social differences?
(This should be interesting.)

These folks, who were disgusted at the above comments and others subsequently posted, have the right idea:

I'm not even sure why they allow comments for stories like this.
It just becomes a platform for all of the ignorant racists, that like to spam every article about a black person on, to rant and rave about something that they don't have the slightest idea about.
So sad.

I agree, T-P should lock articles like this one up from comment, no need to comment, it's not local and it's indeed a platform for ignorance to smear their hate and blind hateful remarks onto, some people know how to read behind the line's, we're a lot more educated than you think.
