I'm not shure... Cuba or Rio aren't there? And the pictures don't have sense with text..
What I know is, there is poverty and violence in most of these countries. The wealth of these countries are operated by Western countries (in general) . Often the representatives of these countries are corrupt. I am European , we built our societies plundering their land and their wealth by exploiting the population . Personally, I do not call that humanity and the sharing of wealth , right?
