Nice try, I especially appreciate you showing things that no "native" Africans have even the remote chance of ever building. A better example would have been Haiti, that's what Angola would have been without the "Evil European Settlers" that interrupted the Africans building of mud huts.

They are still the ones that built up the place and developed it, you would never see anything nearly like this is the native africans were the ones developing it. Image here is of a stone bridge, even something as simple as this is beyond the scope of Africans. Don't bullshit me that they could develop things like the example you gave if they can't even fix a stone bridge, since things like skyscrapers are much more complicated things than this.

If you want me to take you seriously, show me a place in Africa that hasn't been touched by European settlers and has the same degree of development.

sadly, nowhere in the entire continent of Africa hasn't been touched by settlers.

Also the jungle. Many places are just not suited for settelments. Even less for european back in the days.

this was probably due to something out of their control, like an earthquake. an earthquake destroyed a bridge in San Fransisco, and I don't see you calling Americans idiots. this bridge was likely never rebuilt because of a lack of money. many countries in Africa are unfortunately very poor.

I don't call Americans stupid cause Americans are not busy dying by the thousands every day cause they are TOO F**KING RETARDED to boil water, Americans are not busy running around and eating each other cause they don't know how to feed themselves via basic farming techniques. Americans are not so ass backwards that their most advanced tools are a pointy stick that they throw at others, that comparison is amazingly stupid on so many levels. Americans could build more advanced bridges and even more importantly, they could rebuild them if they got destroyed by natural disasters.

The reason why Africa is a shithole is cause Africans have no ability to make use of the resources that they have. Funny enough, Africa is insanely rich on resources. They would be quite well-off, if they knew how to make use of it. That is one of their greatest problems, they never made it past the most basic hunter-gatherer societies for multiple reasons. This is why Africa is a shithole, them being poor is just a result of them being shit at creating wealth from the start.

The greatest irony is that Africa is being re-colonized again, this time by the Chinese. Funny how colonialism is bad when white people do it, now that the Chinks are doing it then it's A-OK.

man, you're an idiot. I hope that you were drunk while writing that last comment, because if you were sober, that is seriously distressing.

I am not the one being delusional about Africa and making excuses for it, trying to make it not sound like the shithole it is. You are the idiot, It's also seriously distressing to think that you are so delusional to think that Africans made these things that clearly Europeans built. Either you are a kike jew or a self-hating white, both are equally as pathetic.

No, cause I can't be f**ked to care anymore, especially not when you are "Chinse" and the shithole you live in is busy trying to colonize Africa.

That's good, laugh at your own retardations. Funny how I am the stupid one and you can't even answer any points I have and instead just insult me. yeah you are really doing a great job at proving how wrong I am, suddenly I think Africa is the best place on Earth and everyone should move there cause of how amazing that place is.

why does everyone get pissed off when people refer to Africa like a country?
reply
0 ups, 2w,
1 reply
because it makes the entire massive continent of Africa seem like just a country, which makes it seem smaller, and therefore less significant. (that's why I get pissed off anyways)

Not to mention the multiple actual countries that run vastly different from one another, not to mention tribal pre-colknized roots. It's just dumb. Europe isn't considered a country, and neither is Asia. Somehow Africa got the short end of that stick.
