a beautiful continent (YES IT'S A CONTINENT) underneath Europe.
A great place for safaris, too (THERE ARE NO TIGERS)
biomes range from deserts to the snowy peaks of Kilimanjaro. Yes, there is snow in Africa.
There are many tribes in Africa and all of the people there are nice and don't run around in panties with spears in their hands. Honestly, the people there are happier than the majority of Americans.
THINGS PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT AFRICA BEFORE THEY START RANTING ON ABOUT HOW IT'S POOR AND PRIMITIVE:
-African is not a language. It is an adjective to describe something from Africa, i.e. African people and African elephants.
-WE HAVE KFC.
-There is really a small amount of famine in Africa. Only one i can think of right now is in Somalia.
-WE HAVE A DEMOCRACY, PEOPLE!!!!!
-In Africa, we live in houses, go to normal schools, we have cars, our parents go to work to earn money.
-I live in Kenya, which is a country on the East Coast of Africa, and i have never seen anyone die, get killed, or get raped here. I live in a large house and the most exotic thing in my backyard is the monkey pulling out food from the veggie garden. There's a HUGE rainforest right next to my house and i've never been to the national park (A national park is a reserved area where you can see the native animals, kinda like Yellowstone). Every day after school i go home, check my facebook, and text my friends with my samsung phone using Airtel phone time.
-People who live in mud huts are the nomadic natives. NATIVES. How would you like it if everybody in Africa thought that every American lives in a teepee and runs around in loincloths and feathers in their hair hunting buffalos and riding bareback on pintos? Didn't think so.
Next time you judge Africa, Africa will judge you.
NOTE: 9gag and Media are NOT good sources to learn about Africa.
