    I don't know shyt about africa. Don't care. The irony is i've learned nothing I didn't know before reading this thread from reading this thread.....

    That means I already knew every fun FACT brought up in this tread and could still admit I don't know much and don't care to know much.

    Now enters the problem...people know less and try to "educate" others.

    I can't afford to live in the past. I dpon't care about my 40 acres and a mule, I don't care about the minute percentage of a lottery chance I was royalty in the motherland in comparison to the honest fact if I was left there I'd probably be in worse shape today.

    It may sound like I'm detatched from my "black roots", but I'm a hustler by nature. Any real hustler knows talkin about what you used to have and what you used to do is for suckas. Only thing weaker than that is focusing on what a relative of yours is doing to make yourself seem reputable. If you yourself are not shinin right now, nobody cares what you once were or who your relative is. Doesn't change the fact you're a bum who needs to get your own instead of talking about what you're supposed to have or once had.

    Harsh reality.

    EDIT: I'm not saying you don't have a right to persue knowledge of where you're from and who your ancestors were...I'm saying every african ain't your brother like every black person on your little azz street that means nothing in comparison to the entire world isn't your brother.

    Two things that annoy me are people who are positive out of ignorance, and people who are negative out of bitterness. People who are neither usually get along with me and agree with most of what I say. People who are one of the 2 think I'm the other.

    ^^^Lol. True. How can you bring up what historic african figures have done in relation to yourself without bringing up what your crackhead cousin pookie down the street from you does in the same relevance? Who are you more closely "related to"?

    And that's not saying either of their actions determine your fate. Why not just run around all day bragging what Americans have done? Or even better...HUMAN KIND?

    Guess that's just crazy talk.

    I recently found out that tigers are bigger than lions. I was shocked.

    And yes, tigers reside mostly in Asia. A lot of them are in the area of India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. That is why they are called Bengal tigers.

    Those people are obviously ignorant, I hope you scammed them out of some money to teach them a lesson...

    I didn't know there were many white people in Northern Africa. I though those countries were populated by Arabs. Countries like Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt seem to be closely related to Middle Eastern countries. Don't most Northern African countries speak Arabic and have a majority Muslim population?

    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.
    I agree. It sad to see people that say they don't care to learn. How low can you go on yourself thinking like that. I could not be around a person that don't like to know history or study things. Those kind of people have to stay away form me, cause they can bring my spirit down.
