    • China and Ejiao: The Donkey Skin Trade

      China and Ejiao: The Donkey Skin TradeTo some Chinese people, “man’s best friend” is what is on the menu. In China, “Man’s best friend” is quite delicious . In fact, there is no better friend than what is cooked and served as far as some Chinese people are concerned. To some other Chinese people, "Man’s best friend” is what brings in money, more money and nothing but money.

    • Why most Africans do not like Trump

      Why most Africans do not like TrumpMy community in Africa is quite religious and most people in my community don't like involving themselves in politics. Why? Because politics is generally "dirty" and "dangerous". However, that is not to say, people in my community run away from their civic duties (including voting). Once in a while (especially during general elections), most of us come out of our shells.
