Since forever?

One is the former French colony Congo and the other is the former Belgian colony Congo. When people refer to the messed up Congo they usually refer to the Belgian one, though they are both shitholes of course.

I just started reading this extraordinary book called Exterminate All the Brutes. I bought it used and knew nothing about it, and didn't expect to much of it, but it's unlike any book I have ever read. The author takes his title from Heart of Darkness and that's his jumping off point for a book that's a travelogue, literary criticism, a biography of Joseph Conrad, a history of the: evolution debate, colonialism/genocide in Africa and elsewhere, 18th century weaponry among other things.

D.R. Congo has such a sad history

from its days as the Congo Free State and being a slave labour camp for King Leopold to being a country with billions of dollars of mineral wealth being robbed by anyone and everyone. It's shocking how much of everything we own is partly tainted with the blood of people suffering in the 3rd world. However, it is not like much can be done about it though, since those minerals go into everything that we use in our daily lives.

When people say Congo, they're usually referring to DRC.

You should be happy about it, there are millions of people that would love to be in your position to live a comfy life and buy cheap shit from walmart. Its either you or them.
