I'm all for helping Africa devolop, but bending the knee to activists Iln the western world is just woke virtue signaling. If you want to help.tte congo set up some industry in the Congo and trade deals. The marxist push will help, no one. The Congo doesn't need apologies, to BLM, they need devolopment.

Don’t apologize for something you, as an individual, didn’t do. It comes across as insincere and flippant
