steissd, I find your idea preposterous.

It's being said, in this thread, that Africans despise Americans. According to the Pew Global Attitudes poll, it is clearly not the case.

This is the percentage of favorable opinions towards the US in African nations, 2002:

Ivory Coast 84%
Ghana 83%
Kenya 80%
Nigeria 77%
Mali 75%
Uganda 74%
South Africa 65%
Senegal 61%
Angola 54%
Tanzania 53%

Those averages are higher than in Western Europe:

Great Britain 75%
Italy 70%
France 63%
Germany 61%

Because of the great achievments of Egypt, many have tried to separate it from the african continent. And many have denied that most of these great achievments came about before Egyptian society, became integrated with Caucasians, and Arabs.

cicerone, It comes from a thread started by Walter Hinteler. Too bad so few people bothered to click the link:

(And remember: no Aztecs were ever in Peru)

I think that colonial powers really messed things up there. If africa was left to have ruled themselves, they'd be ok. Whether the people there stayed tribal or embraced modern living. Given that what's done is done, it'd take alot of time and money to make things right there.


THIS IS IT ! thats exactly why africa is like it is and the rest of the world STILL looks on and shakes its head. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

How do we break the cycle of breeding, surviving, dying?
Its hardly worthwhile feeding someone who will turn around and conceive more mouths to feed. The solution is in edcutaion, but to a starving perosn, they desire food, not books.

@Pharon,
The biggest killer in Africa is still malaria and the cure for that is still DDT.

@Pharon,
Africa's screwed because every time they have a problem they accept assistance from other countries. Consequently, they never developed their infrastructure, education, cultural, and other areas since thye're the planet's welfare states.

If every time you have a famine you just use food given to you from elsewhere, you never fix whatever caused the famine to begin with. And when other nations help you out, instead of letting the too-big population die off naturally so it doesn't keep happening, the food aid simply enables the problem to multiply so it's worth next time.

If the world wanted to help Africa they'd either let them die off when that happens as with the recent ebola outbreak (read: nature's way of controlling unsustainable populations) or they'd invade, topple the ineffective regimes there and replace them with ones that at least work.
