The author comments on the liberal activist organization International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) and its failure to protest or discuss crises in Africa, such as those in Congo, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. He believes that left-leaning activists are galvanized by victimizers, and that the lack of U.S. activity in Africa makes that area a poor target for attacks on U.S. imperialism. He notes that Human Rights Watch and several media outlets have kept Africa's suffering in the news.
