CBC Says USA Should Import More Oil From Africa
The Congressional Black Caucus released a report, "Breaking the Oil Syndrome: Responsible Hydrocarbon Development in West Africa," which calls for importing more oil from West African countries as a solution to USA oil woes: recent fluctuations in oil prices, sociopolitical unrest in the Middle East, the war on terror, homeland security and continued dependence on foreign oil. Black Americans should gain more ownership in this energy sector -- then the African oil wouldn't be so foreign. And how much are average Africans in Nigeria, Algeria, Angola and Libya benefitting from oil profits? What about African Americans?
