Meeting white people and hearing their impatience and disappointment about the continent of Africa.
With no knowledge about the continent or any of the 54 countries. With no knowledge of the history of individual countries, struggles for independence, neo colonialism, foreign led coups. With no knowledge of the crazy European set borders, throwing people from different ethnicities, races, cultures and religions together that we still feel to this day. And even separating them to different countries.
Without any knowledge that six of the 10 fastest growing economies between 2001 and 2012 were in Africa, according to the Economist. The International Monetary Fund says that between 2011 and 2015, African countries will account for 7 of the top 10 spots.
How about you educate yourselves. Africa is not a country and we are fine without your pity and guilt.
