The Birthplace Of Humanity And Civilization.

Africa is home to so many different unique cultures and civilizations, such as the Ashanti Empire, the Nok civilization, Yoruba culture, Ancient Egypt (and yes, Egypt otherwise known as Kemet was predominantly African/Black), Ancient Nubia (similar to Ancient Egypt, and underrated just like most African civilizations), the Kingdom Of Kush, Great Zimbabwe, Zulu, Oromo, Mandinka, Fulani, Berber culture, etc. Modern day Homo Sapiens and pre-modern day humans originated in Africa before migrating to other parts of the world. The most essential things of society today have come from Africa, including Mathematics, Science, Astronomy, Art, Architecture, Spirituality (the root of all religions), and even the use of speech (as stated by French historian Count Constantine De Volney).
There are 54 countries in Africa. It is the richest continent in the world, which is why Africa is constantly getting exploited for it's resources. Unfortunately so many people have a false perception of Africa, and despite everything that the continent and it's inhabitants have been through over the centuries, it's still one of the best places in the world overall.

A beautiful continent bursting at he seams with culture and heritage. Africa's been through a lot but our 2010 World Cup song was still the biggest bop of the century.
I'd love to take a trip to Africa one day.

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.
-African is not a language. It is an adjective to describe something from Africa, i.e. African people and African elephants.
-There is really a small amount of famine in Africa. Only one i can think of right now is in Somalia.
-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.

One of, if not the, greatest song of the 1980s, possibly all time. Released by the band Toto in 1982.
It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you.
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could never do.
I bless the rains down in Africa;
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have.
