ABSTRACT
The dominant element in American foreign policy since 1946 has been opposition to communism and to the communist powers. As far as Africa was concerned, responsibility for pursuing these objectives was delegated to the U.S.'s trusted allies, Great Britain, France, Belgium and even Portugal whose policies in the area were therefore broadly supported despite minor disagreements which arose as American business became interested in Africa's potential Inevitably this placed in the U.S. in opposition to an Africa which was trying to win its independence from those same powers, but when political freedom could be achieved peacefully. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on earth Africa is weak, economically and militarily, its unity is still fragile Africa does therefore naturally desire the friendship and cooperation of the United States, it does need trade, and economic assistance. Human rights are also inconsistent with the practice of racialism. They are denied by any law or practice, which distinguishes the rights and duties of men and women according to their racial origin.
