I am not Black, but I had much rather our country's money stay here and help deserving needy Blacks and Americans of all races instead of all the foreign aide we give. Let's take care of our own first.

Foreign aide, like domestic aide, is a policy tool that may be more cost effective and palatable than the alternative. We should strive to wean all dependants from aide and let our foreign and domestic policy become bribe-free. Unfortunately, bribes are more institutionalized outside the US and without them, our foreign policy would be severely handicapped (oops, I mean diplomatically challenged).
