Very bad idea. No offense. Its just to many cultural, ethnic, and religious barriers. Especially in North Africa where they view most of sub-saharan african states as impoverished animals.

I would recommend that only the west, cental, and south african countries seek a type Confederation.

Exclude places like Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea, etc. who are so ashamed of being black its not even worth attempting to collaborate with them.

Well developed countries like South Africa, Botswana, Nigeria, and Ghana are very prideful. So it is hard for me to see a President be elected representing these countries without some kind of resentment. But its possible to work this way.

This is only my opinion as an outsider since I am not African.

Zimbabwe will be better off when the West stops meddling with it. The same goes for the rest of Africa.

Remember, it was the West that placed sanctions on Zimbabwe, preventing it from getting international loans or credit for development, not Mugabe. Not to mention the super inflation brought about by the devaluation of the domestic currency, which was caused by the freezing of Zimbabwean assets and finances by the EU and US. Not to say that Mugabe is without faults, but there is just more to the story than just him.

This is what people always leave out when they try to use Zimbabwe as some prime example of African "failure".

So does India.

"India has more than two thousand ethnic groups, and every major religion is represented, as are four major families of languages (Indo-European, Dravidian, Austro-Asiatic and Tibeto-Burman languages) as well as two language isolates (the Nihali language[9] spoken in parts of Maharashtra and the Burushaski language spoken in parts of Jammu and Kashmir)."

There are no major barriers other than politically enforced ones.

I agree. The north is more Arab than African.

I disagree about Ethiopia. Ethiopia has good relations with countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Namibia, as well as the new country of South Sudan.

So they're cool.

The other two are a bit questionable.

Any man who tells whites to f off deserves to be honored in my opinion, so Mugabe for president of Africa! But make sure he has minimal powers.

Who told you that Ethiopians are ashamed of being black? Do you even know what the word "Ethiopia" means? You are one retarded dumbshit.

As Africans, we do not refer to ourselves as black. Black is a classification that was created by whites and has absolutely nothing to do with us Africans. In Africa you are either African, Asian or white. White is separate from African, this is represented in official government documents in several African countries.

Then I stand corrected about Ethiopia's cooperation and relationship with the others. If the path of governance is resolved it might work. The real question is will foreign nations allow it to happen with out interference.

I think that they have to remain neutral without any foreign alliances other than just economical reasons in order to remain peaceful without creating enemies.

In the race section in South African documents you either mark African, Asian, Coloured or white. There is no such a thing as a white African in Africa.

white is separate from African. Africans and whites are two different groups.

Are you Ethiopian? If so, why does the Ethiopian government allow foreign countries to claim Ethiopians are not black? Will the Ethiopia government publicly acknowledge being black like the other countries? Ethiopian ppl THEMSELVES deny being black just like the Eritreans and Somalians. You don't have to just find it on the internet.

Quit whining.

I have already told you that we Africans are not black, we are Africans. We do not refer to ourselves as black people. Black is a classification created by whites and it has absolutely nothing to do with us. You are either African, Asian or white. There is no black.

O, how grandiose can our ideas inflate! It is rampart to have all the answers > But no solutions. But that’s what hope consist of “the spirit to believe” even in things that are not tangible. With all humility but, I do think that this comment is comparable to a man having a far flung illusion of having mastery over all women. The fact is he might entertain such a fantasy, but just one woman is more than he can handle…… and it is still only periodically allowed as play act to appease his boyish emotion on her behalf.
