Mighty Mix dog food just offered to send Kenya a donation of 6,000 emergency packs of dog food to feed starving children.
Kenya declined the offer because Africans are not dogs. In fact, being equated with dogs is pretty fucking insulting (surprise!). They aren’t even kept as pets.
“The offer was very naive and culturally insulting given the meaning of dogs in our culture,” said government spokesman Alfred Mutua.
According to the article, four million people are facing hunger in Kenya due to severe drought. Aid agencies say dozens of people and thousands of livestock have died in recent months.
Here’s a thought: Why don’t we offer them people food?
