What do you honestly think of Africa and/or Africans?



  • Hi ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ
    This may seem weird and out of nowhere but it occurred to me that people don't actually know much about us here in Africa. So I'd like to know what most of you genuinely think. Thank you ๐Ÿ’•



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila for me it's a stunning continent full of wonder, loved the place for over 40 years since watching old Tarzan movies as a small boy. Only been to Morocco but I've watched literally hundreds of documentaries about Africa, mostly nature. Seems the same as everywhere else, loads of brilliant culture and lovely people but plenty of corrupt goverments too. I admire that President (can't remember which country) who hitches a ride when he needs to go somewhere, says if his people can't have cars then neither shall he, what a hero, the world needs more politicians like him



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila What little I know mainly comes from what's shown on local TV. Such diversity! From bush people/tribes to modern day cities. So much LAND and so many animals. Beautiful beaches and waters.

    @Scarlett-Chalumbila
    i've never been to africa, but i've seen a lot of documentaries and read a lot about it. beautiful landscapes, wonderful cultures and great music ๐Ÿ˜„ i feel like africa as a whole has a lot of potential to develop into something truly amazing

    also, i think that pre-colonial african history is absolutely fascinating, and should be spoken about more. things like the yoruban city-states, ancient egypt and the medieval empires of mali & ethiopia were a lot of fun to learn about



  • @sarah_the_magpie the zulu nation is a favourite of mine too Sarah and i love the massai culture, those guys are badass, I've seen footage of them strolling towards prides of lions and the lions freak out and run away, nerves of steel



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila Well I got thrown out of Egypt for sticking up for women's rights, went there for a workshop and ended up being sidetracked by the way most men seem to treat their own women, So got caught up in their rights movement at the time other than that had a great time if you don't mind the leering men and backhanded comments. Would love to get to see the central parts of the continent but so far the only long term plans is to see South Africa



  • As an Egyptian, I consider myself, but I've never been to any other country in Africa, so I don't know.

    Now as a secondary question, as an African, do you consider Egyptians and North Africans to be African as well, or not?



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila
    I like ur pfp

  • @Scottish Thank you for your honest reply. I truly appreciate it ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’•



  • @Lazz Thanks for your honest response. I highly appreciate it ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’•



  • @A-M-G Thank you for your honesty. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’•
    And yes I do consider North Africas and Egyptians as Africans ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š



  • @Ladydoall30 Yes it seems like some countries in Africa seem to have this mentality that talking down to women is okay. If I was at that protest I probably would have been kicked out too lol. Anyway thank you for sharing this with me! I highly appreciate it ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila
    Africa is too huge and diverse, and it will be an injustice to generalise their practices and cultures.
    Like the Egyptian africans are so different from the Ugandans.



  • @Scottish Anytime ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila the culture of Ghana is quite similar to the dharmic traditions of india. Also not many Africans where I live.



  • @Eye This is true. But what do you think about the different cultures in Africa?



  • @Ghost-Div Alright thanks for letting me know! ๐Ÿ’•
    Also if you haven't visited South Africa then I recommend you do. There's a lot of diversity there when it comes to cultures. Also visit the Okavango Delta in Botswana, it's simply amazing ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ



  • @Scarlett-Chalumbila I'm sure there's a LOT I am not aware of. Perhaps you can share more details, and let us see though your eyes.



  • i would say the african continent is a playground for the wealthy countries, where they fight for your diamonds, natural resources, etc. I fell and see how they dont allow people go to schools to get educated and have a feature, in the past i have seen so many public figures from africa whitch really had a message for humanity Martin luther king, morgan freeman, malcom x, etc. All these people come from there, they didnt have the chance to grow up in their countries, but somehow, they still managed to impress humanity.
    much love from romania
