As I have stated numerous times in the past, I am not a racist, but I am definitely a CULTURALIST.
This is why!
The sort of person you are depends entirely on the quality of your character!
Good, bad, honest, crooked, sly, shy, boastful, meek, arrogant, virtuous, industrious, lazy, tricky, or whatever, all depends on your inherent upbringing and values.
Not surprisingly, groups, small and large companies, cultures, organizations, and even nations turn out the way they are through the combined character of both their members, and the people that run them!
This is why not only individual people, but cultures, organizations and nations as well, are either better or worse than others.
That’s right kids, it’s a matter of CHARACTER!
(Please note that I said cultures, organizations and nations,  not RACES!)
Which brings us to the reason for today’s blog……………………………….., The United Nations!
I would like to give you a few excerpts from a column by Simon Kent of the Toronto Sun:
Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe blames us for the appalling state of his nation. The 89-year-old leader used last week’s smashing victory in yet another questionable election to harangue the west for being his “enemies” and causing harm to the national interest.

He identified this enemy as “the British and their allies” before specifically mentioning Ottawa, saying it had backed Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).
It seems Canada’s major crime is to be brave enough to speak out against Mugabe and his cronies who have together taken the country from net food exporter to mendicant in just 33 years.
The litany of woes comrade Mugabe has overseen since independence in 1980 is more worthy of a book than a column, but let’s look at a few of the more glaring shortfalls in his Marxist paradise.
In January, Finance Minister Tendai Biti announced the government’s bank account only held $217 after all public officials had been paid. So Zimbabwe asked international donors to foot the $104 million bill incurred by the election and constitutional referendum.
The unemployment rate stands at around 95%, four-fifths of the population live below the poverty line, average life expectancy is in the early 50s and rates of AIDS infection are at epidemic proportions. Around one-seventh of all adults are infected with HIV or AIDS in Zimbabwe, leaving one in four children orphaned as a consequence.
Now, it seems Canada is blamed for that, along with the U.K. and the U.S. and pretty much anyone else prepared to tell the truth about the country once known as the breadbasket of Africa.
Still, the cozy relationship between Mugabe and the United Nations endures.
The disputed election passed with barely a mention on the UN website. Instead, there were press releases relating to the presentation of diplomatic credentials, global youth dialogue and calls for everlasting global peace delivered to the World Conference against Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs in Hiroshima.
Zimbabwe will also join neighbour Zambia in co-hosting a conference by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) next week.
More than 3, 000 delegates are expected to attend the shindig to be held in the Zambian city of Livingstone and the Zimbabwean town of Victoria Falls.
At the same time, Canada will have some explaining to do during a little visit of our own from UN representatives.
The UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights are all expected around the time UNWTO hits Zimbabwe.
UN special rapporteur Maina Kiai has already listed Canada as a country where “the laws are particularly harsh in terms of restricting the freedom of association.”
Let’s not forget the lyrically named Olivier De Schutter, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. He made an 11-day tour of Canada last year and warned us to drop a “self-righteous” attitude and own up to a severe food insecurity problem.
Charming, isn’t it?
Zimbabwe can stand as a global pariah while Canada gets a visit (and a scolding) from the very organization that should be holding the former accountable.
Folks, the point to this whole article is that the United Nations used to be run by First World Countries, and is now slowly being taken over by third world countries like Zimbabwe, North Korea, Cuba, Libya, Somalia, Cote d’Ivoire, Laos, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Syria and Central American countries!
 And how much does this hypocrisy cost?
The UN annual operating budget stands at close to $20 billion — and rising — with Canada amongst the biggest contributors of all.
