    Forgot to mention that my wife was born in Kenya - her parents lived there at a time when the book Born Free was being written and then later filmed as a major release. Her mum used to "babysit" Elsa the lioness, but it was another time and another world, before they kicked the whites out. My wife did learn to speak Swahili as a child in Kenya, although she has forgotten most of it now....

    they think africa is all one big land of mass and and that all the countries are the same. it's pretty pitiful especially if you ask them to name one country in africa besides south africa
    Is that really how "ALL" Black Americans feel? SMDH! Funny, I don't feel "ALL" white people are ignorant, just ones that make comments like this. Believe it or not, not -"ALL" - Black Americans think and feel the same way.

    We only know shit, when we somehow agree with "your" view of the world.

    i thank you all, there were some people who displayed at least some knowledge about the continent.

    i'm nigerian and every time i would get made fun for being a 'spear chucker' and it was pretty funny for them to speak the clicking language of south africa. seeing as thats the only counry that speaks it. it funnier to see both white and black people in america make fun of africans. especially since they have no idea what any of is. if i told them there are some white people are indigenous to africa (not including south africa) they wouldn't believe me. think i'm lying look at the northern african countries hardly any of them are black

    It wasn't always that way for Northern Africa. It was strictly dark people till the invasions came from the North (Greeks) and the East (Arabs/Persia/Medes). Just like America did not always look majority white (Europeans), at one time this land was brown people only(Indians). The invasions of countries and lands changes the demographics of a land.

    You can disagree if you take into account Berber people... but even then, this is a wide group.
    Nah but seriously it is okay for people to not know a lot about Africa. It is not ok not willing to learn about it though.

    I say that because as an African being born and bred overseas, I would be really presomptuous to say that I know about everything... Hell you would not expect a chinese dude to know everything about China or a French dude to know everything about Europe. Same reasoning applies.

    I have worked in Cameroon (well only 5 months) and still, I consider that it was just a peek. I probably know more about the US which I visited for 3 months at most.

    But in any case, apart from some countries such as Nigeria, South Africa and Morocco, which are kinda poppin' already, I would say that you still have a little bit of time to really get acquainted if you want to do business there. The other countries are kinda lagging for now.
