Youth's Return to Zimbabwe

January 24, 1988

How unforgivably typical for the United States government to allow a white Soviet child to remain in the United States simply because he liked it better here, while sending a black African child back to the father who admittedly beat him to within an inch of his life.

Do we really wonder why apartheid proliferates? It has had the blatant support of Western governments who always play money above the value of human life, especially if those lives are cloaked in dark skins. But I suppose it's only natural for them to treat a foreign black child with as much disdain for his safety and civil rights as black American citizens have been subjected to.
