Where else would a president, who laughed complicitly
at the suggestion border patrol agents should shoot undocumented migrants, get away with a faux condemnation of racism and a plea for unity across the very population he polarised?
Sadly, religious leaders, Christians and Muslims alike, in most parts of Africa seem indifferent and complicitly
docile in the face of catastrophe on such a large scale.
If "The Wolf of Wall Street" took flak in some quarters for complicitly
reveling in the glossy moral bankruptcy of its otherwise loaded brokers, such an accusation is unlikely to be leveled against "Equity."
