The West does care about Africa.
Let’s see how the Obama administration has treated Nigeria who by the way are a huge nation with 175,000,000+ so when we hear about these atrocious events over there, as bad as they are, it’s a bit like when you hear bad things that occur in India, yes, those things are bad but India is a huge nation, so hence, I don’t think it’s a case where the West doesn’t care about Africa.

“John Kerry to Nigeria: no excuse for human rights abuses” -http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/may/25/john-kerry-nigeria-human-rights
Making his first official trip to sub-Saharan Africa, US secretary of state John Kerry on Saturday demanded that Nigeria respect human rights as it cracks down on Islamist extremists and pledged to work hard in the coming months to ease tensions between Sudan and South Sudan.
Kerry, attending the African Union’s 50th anniversary, backed the Nigerian government’s efforts to root out Boko Haram, an al-Qaida linked radical sect. But he said there is no excuse for abuses by armed forces in Nigeria’s long neglected north, where President Goodluck Jonathan has declared emergency rule.
