3. 2015 European Year for Development Aid — Our World, Our Future, Our Dignity. #EYD2015
EU-28 Development Aid: 96 billion $ vs 65 billion $ the rest of the world, total 160 billion $
USA Aid: $31.55 billion + 16.5 b by private sector to projects both in as outside of the USA

In the EU-28 only 8 countries have a slavery and colonial past. I’m fed up that I get a bad reputation as a white person because a minority in these 8 don’t want to own their wrongdoings, have a problem apologizing and ask for forgiveness as often as it is required by the victims and their descendants, hence preventing healing and business opportunities for me and mines. The latter shows the interest of the vast majority of the EU-28 to participate in the #ColonialismDecade and #AfricanDescentDecade.
