    You are despicable! You inhumane, unfeeling son/daughter of a bitch. With
    all its natural resources Africa is the richest continent on earth, yet its
    people are forced to live in abject poverty…attributed to white, wicked,
    racist people who robbed them of their wealth. Africa isn’t poor, it’s
    being looted, which has been the case for hundred of years now. You piece
    of filth addressing the children as “People like these” Who do you think
    you are? Stink like the shit up your ass.

    Now see this?Why would people want to know where their gold comes from when
    buying jewelry? It is a careful planned trick. Are they saying that it is
    immoral for a person to buy gold that was produced under these conditions?
    Just think.Why would people refuse to buy gold that are produced by people
    like these, when the demand for gold is the very thing helping them
    survive? If people stopped buying gold that came from their lands, these
    people would go hungry.

    These people are mining gold as they have no other alternative now to
    SUBSIST, since the same “elites” that own the western media (and most
    everything else) intentionally PUT & KEEP THEM in abject poverty, while
    they rob them BLIND! And at least 90% of the underground gold EVER MINED
    (enough to fill approx. three Olympic sized swimming pools) came from
    similar operations. If there was any real concern for these poor Africans,
    then those exploiting them would LEAVE, or provide an ALTERNATIVE!

    Too bad there is no context provided in this “news” story. I agree that
    mercury is very damaging. But where is the context of the value of their
    labor in this piece? To me $4/week sounds very low, but to it could mean
    live or death to these people. In other words they may be facing a choice
    of dying by starvation or dying by mercury poisoning. I just don’t know and
    it would be nice if there was context provided to that aspect.
