Picture Africa as a school playground, where a lot of different kids are living. There is one group by the swing set, another by the school, a third live by soccer field, and a fourth is by the bike racks. Sometimes the soccer field kids throw small pebbles at the bike rack kids, and sometimes the bike rack kids get hurt and fight back, but usually it ends without much damage done and they keep to themselves.
One day, a group of kids from a different school come inside. Most of the playground kids are wearing ripped clothing and using bags for sneakers, these kids from a different school have Nike runners on. They all have mountain bikes and guns.
The new kids go to the swing set kids and give them a bunch of candy, stuff they have never seen before. The new kids ask in return for the swing set kids to capture the kids by the school and bring them to the swing sets. The swing set kids capture all the kids by the school and are taken outside of the playground, and never seen again.
Then the new kids capture the bike rack kids and are forced to start working for the new kids, along with the swing set kids. They start building new stuff. Slides, jungle gyms, everything the new kids want, they have to do. All the swing set and bike rack kids are tied to ropes so they can't escape.
One day the new kids leave and have taken the playgrounds clothing and food with them. But they leave a lot of guns behind.
The soccer field kids believe they are better than the swing set and bike rack kids. They fight for power in this unruled and divided playground. They have forgotten to live peacefully after many years of being ruled by the new kids.
The new kids are Europe. The soccer field kids are Rwanda, and the other three are Congo, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and West Africans.
