I guess I'm nobody, as are the Africans who come to SaidIt. There's a large number from Nigeria, South Africa, etc.

I agree that when people say "I'll pray for you" is mostly wishful thinking bullshit, that may or may not substitute for meditation.

I also agree that, sadly, Africa is not a priority for most folks of the English speaking world.

However, I wouldn't go so extreme as to say "NOBODY gives a fuck about Africa", as if they're lower than any other continent or people, or if that's not what you meant then I could name a dozen other places with familiar and unfamiliar names. (ie. NOBODY gives a fuck about East Timor.) They're still part of our world and the human race and deserve compassion and respect.
