In a stunning display of real-time censorship, an African economist’s brief appearance on CNN ended abruptly after he suggested a shocking proposal: African nations should control their own natural resources. The suggestion, which flew in the face of centuries-old traditions of foreign exploitation, seemed to short-circuit the host’s ability to engage in rational debate, leading to an immediate commercial break.

African History Professor Weeps Openly While Reading Western Textbooks About the Continent
