ZG LUA : China is telling the world to build roads first if you want to be rich.

dennis maina : The west used to steal minerals from Africa and on return, they created anti govt rebels, sold guns, supplied family planning pills and bulk condoms. They never fund any development projects.

Lecia : 我们是东亚病夫时,我们被说是黄祸; When we were the sick man of Asia, we were called the yellow peril.    我们被预言是下一个超级大国了,我们被指是主要威胁。 When we are billed to be the next superpower, we are called the threat.    那时我们闭关自守,你走私鸦片来强开门户; When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets.    我们拥抱自由贸易了,你责骂我们抢走你的饭碗。 When we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.    那时我们风雨飘摇,你铁蹄犯境要求机会均等;   When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your fair share. 我们要整合破碎的山河,你说我们“入侵”…… When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again, free Tibet you screamed, It was an invasion!    我们试行马列救国,你痛恨我们成为异己分子;    When tried communism, you hated us for being communist.    我们拥抱资本主义了,你又恨我们当了资本家。    When we embrace capitalism, you hate us for being capitalist.    当我们的人口到达十亿,你说我们在摧毁地球;    When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.    我们要限制人口了,你说我们践踏人权。    When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights.    那时我们一贫如洗,你视我们贱如狗;    When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.    我们有钞票借给你了,你怨我们令你国债累累。 When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.    我们发展工业了,你说我们是污染者; When we build our industries, you call us polluters.   我们有货品卖给你了,你说我们是地球暖化的因由。    When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.    我们购买石油,你说我们榨取兼灭族;    When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.    你们为石油开战,你说是为了解救生灵。    When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.    那时我们动乱无序,你说我们没有法治;    When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.    现在我们要依法平暴,你说我们违反人权。    When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.    我们静默无声时,你说我们欠缺言论自由;    When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.    我们不再缄默了,你说我们是被洗了脑的仇外暴民。    When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobes.    "为什么你这样憎恨我们?"我们想知道。    “Why do you hate us so much﹖”we asked.    “不”,你说,“我不恨你们。”    “No,” you answered, “we don't hate you.”    我们也不恨你,只是,你了解我们吗?    We don't hate you either, but, do you understand us?    “当然了解”,你说,“我们消息多的是,有 AFP、CNN、还有BBC……”    “Of course we do, ”you said, “We have AFP, CNN and BBC's ……”    那么你究竟要我们怎样生存?    What do you really want from us?    回答之前,请仔细的想一想… 因为你的机会不是无限的。    Think hard first, then answer, because you only get so many chances.    已经够多了…这个世界容不下更多的伪善了。 Enough is enough, enough hypocrisy for this one world.    我们要的是同一个世界,同一个梦想,靖世太平。 We want one world, one dream, and peace on earth.    这个宽广、辽阔的蓝地球,容得下你们,容得下我们。    This big blue earth is big enough for all of us. 美国,日本是发达国家,我不知道台湾叫自己是什么,不过中国从零到开始从废墟中站起来连百年都不到,养活14亿人不算还要跟老牌列强比物质生活比福利,这就叫中国奇迹。

Adam Yang : Chinese has a Idiom says ,fair in people's hearts 中国有句古话:公道自在人心。

Bosco Dantas : AFRICA is growing China are building infrastructures in Africa, which europe or the U.S. never has done, instead the west system sucked Afrika for centuries.

Xiao Leo : US hit the world .China build the world!

hp chen : Africa is always Africa's Africa, and China will always have only one China. The first to arrive in Africa is the Chinese - Zheng He, but there is no colonization! In comparison, Chinese people prefer a win-win situation (making money). Of course, you can also say that the Chinese use money to buy votes. But isn't it a win-win situation for African brothers? The Chinese earned money and won support; Africans earned money and won development. (I don't know English, Google translates)

Tepper : Meanwhile europe is becoming africa's africa

Siyan Li : China is so smart. Africa has the most natural resources! China is helping Africa and both is getting good out of the trade!

Hassan Dainkeh : What ever we prefer China than the US and European. The Chinese are much better than you guys

Chongzhao Hu : I am Chinese. From what I know, China sent a lot of people to help African countries since the 1960s even in domestic food shortage or cultural revolution. When people are poor, this is the time to see how sincere they are.

CreeperLadMC : You can't really compare China's expanding influence to Western colonialism as China does not employ force to convert African states into vassal states but uses loans to buy their support out of their own free will.

Grand Padawan : Quite better than the US model. I'd choose to deal with China 1000 times over dealing with the US and their boom boom foreign policy!

Metsada007 : Towards the end this video basically says: "Now that China has done all the hard work of helping Africa's industrialization to take off, western companies should establish themselves throughout Africa. Nothing wrong with that, but why all the hate against China in the first place? Apparently the Chinese knew what they were doing and they are doing an excellent job. Why was the West unable to realize Africa's industrialization in the past 50 years ? Also, you are talking about human rights, but industrialization is the biggest human right there is; all human beings have the right to live in dignity and prosperity. Poverty and underdevelopment is a crime against humanity.

Tony : The American media are always good at lying

flyin' K : better than europeans robbed and colonized africa with killing and violence

Michael Jay - Value Investing : Then who will become Africa's Africa?

Soviet Bear : “Let China sleep; when she wakes she will shake the world.” - Napoleon Present Day in Africa ------ Building constructing everywhere ( BANG,VERMMM,BOOMMM)

Your Name Here : Usa, nike builds factories in 3rd world countries = free market captialism China, huawei builds companies in africa = exploitation

霆雷 : 美國是世界邪惡軸心國!

Adam Peck : China not only investing the capital but they are building the infrastructure and economy of Africa They are not bombing and colonising Africa

吴岳 : When we were the sick man of Asia, we were called the yellow peril.    我们被预言是下一个超级大国了,我们被指是主要威胁。 When we are billed to be the next superpower, we are called the threat.    那时我们闭关自守,你走私鸦片来强开门户; When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets.    我们拥抱自由贸易了,你责骂我们抢走你的饭碗。 When we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs.    那时我们风雨飘摇,你铁蹄犯境要求机会均等;   When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your fair share. 我们要整合破碎的山河,你说我们“入侵”…… When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again, free Tibet you screamed, It was an invasion!    我们试行马列救国,你痛恨我们成为异己分子;    When tried communism, you hated us for being communist.    我们拥抱资本主义了,你又恨我们当了资本家。    When we embrace capitalism, you hate us for being capitalist.    当我们的人口到达十亿,你说我们在摧毁地球;    When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.    我们要限制人口了,你说我们践踏人权。    When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights.    那时我们一贫如洗,你视我们贱如狗;    When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.    我们有钞票借给你了,你怨我们令你国债累累。 When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.    我们发展工业了,你说我们是污染者; When we build our industries, you call us polluters.   我们有货品卖给你了,你说我们是地球暖化的因由。    When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.    我们购买石油,你说我们榨取兼灭族;    When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.    你们为石油开战,你说是为了解救生灵。    When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.    那时我们动乱无序,你说我们没有法治;    When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.    现在我们要依法平暴,你说我们违反人权。    When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.    我们静默无声时,你说我们欠缺言论自由;    When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.    我们不再缄默了,你说我们是被洗了脑的仇外暴民。    When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobes.

Ge Mao : The U.S. government just do nothing to help Africa but blame the country who did it.

JiaHao Ren : How Morocco became France’s France How Japan became US’s US

Tsadiki Sewi : If Gaddafi's plan of a gold backed currency for the AU had been implemented, Africa would never have needed help from anybody. African leaders should have had his back.

Victor Popov : A smart investment from china

Ryuu-Dono : Ah so China going for the diplomatic victory.

Forever Alone Guy With No Life : If you are talking about "will china colonize africa". Then here's the answer: No, Chinese are not brits or americans.

haojie ding : African brothers helped China return to the UN.We'll never forget.

Tomislav Miak : How Middle East becoming USA's USA

Endwar1997 : Wendover never compared the methods of China and Western Colonialism, only the _motives_ for their actions.

MAKSiM : So China is going for the diplomatic victory in civ 5? I see...

Genesis Real info Report. : The white man never have Africa and African best interest. Europe and the white man only robbed Africa. Weak spineless leaders in Africa make them get away with it.China is doing for Africa way better than what Europe has done for centuries.

Hang Gao : The United States embraces everything except China. So,you all wanna China die?Then you‘ll be happy?

中華帝國統一世界 : US:Let's shoot somebody CN:let's talk about business

Beauty of nepal : In ruwanda western create the conflict among people of different origins n destroyed there culture by exporting Christianity ,,, many of the innocent people were killed there because of EU n American..same things they r trying in Nepal to trigger China n India by using Nepals land , they r creating the situation by the expose of religion and bringing conflict.... Everybody r aware about it in Nepal but some dollerist r in favour of them...

Soviet Bear : Some random african country: USA: "OMFG YoU HAve GivE FreEdom to Ur citizens Or im boMbing U! :C" China: ( Building massive buildings) " :) I got you hommie"

Bardiya Bakhshandeh : Hats off to China. Nothing wrong with a win-win deal. Hope India also catch up so the world would become a more just place! Let the haters hate. The more powerful countries, the more justice. 🇨🇳🗺

Ray Fonz : Good on you China , helping countries economically and making peace. Lifting people out from poverty .A total contrast from America

Andreas Becker : OOh man I really need to stop reading the comment section.

Cutie Zalbu : Trust me I’ve lived in Africa and when I tell you Chinese helped a lot.....They really did,It was around 2013,2014...Kenya’s highway system was completely revolutionized....As commoner you could feel it,No more potholes,We had a four way road system even for low income areas and “Thicka” a big town now,blew out of nowhere. Atleast China is doing something unlike the Us and Eu...Who cause war and complain about Immigration

Gary Lawrence : China is doing something the American government could have done decades ago. Now 'America' is worried. They should be. With the right leadership Africa could easily be a world superpower, but of course 'America' will never let that happen.

Sherrie Tsao : I appreciate that you state the correct politics about China and Taiwan - it's one country with two governments.
