    His remarks were reckless. It is one thing to point out statistics but quite another to impugn your institution's employees:

    '[Watson] also said that while he wished the races were equal, “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true.”'

    I am also inherently gloomy about the future of Africa, but that's because of the rest of the world's attitudes towards it.

    Those billions in aid must be an annual insult.

    Those billions in investment from China are a pretty shrewd move though.
