After all these eons of living and breeding like rats, now they are instantly going to get "modern?" Did someone spray some magic dust on the people there and now they will advance into a real civilization? Oh, oh,... I see ... it's just another self-proclaimed "AA" trying desperately to upgrade the image of his/her heritage. OK, I get it.
You right! Its racist to say Africa is modernizing because of the Chinese! South Africa is already modernized with no help from the Chinese!

Funny thread.

Negroes been in Africa for about 200,000 years and only now they are modernizing?

Don't you Negroes see what that means? It's an admission that Negroes have been behind the rest of the world in being a modern continent, despite being the oldest area of human population lmfwao

You're not placing things into their proper context.

Africa was never uniformally behind any other continent until really the later 1800s when colonization began, continuing with Neocolonialism to today.

Prior to colonialism, especially in the medieval period, Africans were doing very well for themselves, and in many cases, better than many Europeans.

I guess that begs the question, Why after all the eons of existence are they still behind all other civilizations in terms of health, wealth, and advancement? If they are advanced, how did they allow colonization and foreign rule?(Use your head now)

I think by 2050, Africa will have 2 billion people, nearly 22% of the world population. By that time, due to it's vast resources, Africa will have around 17% of the World Economy.

I think by 2100, Africa will have 3 billion people, nearly 30% of the world population. By that time, due to it's vast resources, Africa will have around 25% of the World Economy.

Because all the previous attempt to modernize and achieve progress were brutally sanctioned or frustrated by the colonial powers. You should read Basil Davidson or anything about African history if you really want to criticize our people properly, troll.

Because Africa has been systematically underdeveloped by Colonial and Neocolonial powers.

You again, are using improper terms. You ask why did (past tense) they "allow" colonialism if they are (present tense) advanced, which doesn't make any sense.

Go learn some grammar, then come back and get spanked by knowledge.

no, why were they also stone-age BEFORE the Europeans even discovered them? Black Africa never discovered the wheel, writing, proper irrigation and farming , nothing that took other races out of the Stone Age.

You're not too coherent on African history, I can see.

Africa had agriculture and writing before any western civilization did. The wheel was only introduced to the Northeast via the the Sinai Peninsula. That is why Egyptians, Sudanese, and Black Libyans had the wheel, and West Africans didn't.

West Africans discovered iron working before anyone in Europe did.

Now go learn some stuff.

I see that you have trouble comprehending common language and reading beyond some grammatical error. Oh, wait, it's just an immature excuse since you don't have a coherent response. I see.

And you missed your comma at the beginning of your first sentence. But I doubt that you will catch (comprehend) where it should be.(choose your own tense here)

I should add that you won't be able to correspond with most posters on here. The grammar on this forum is nowhere near acceptable even on a fourth grade level. You may want to go to other forums where grammar is 100% correct and you could be more able to understand the comments.

I don't really care, and tend to overlook it, if you misspell a word or forget a comma or whatever. I don't engage in pedantry, or at least I tend not to. I tend to type how I like to think I would respond in normal, audible conversation.

But in your last case, meaning in the case of your mixing up of present and past tenses, it wasn't a simple misspelling, it was a completely and logically incoherent question, which required a redressing from you in order for me to address it accurately, something you failed to do in your vacuous rant about grammar, by the way.

And no, I didn't forget any commas, I simply left out a noun phrase and linking verb to "because" for feeling it would have been redundant, since we both know what statement I was responding to.

As far as my actual answer to your question, it was given in the first sentence to which you gave no counter answer, which tells me that you concede what answer I gave in my first response, so no further answering from me is necessary on that issue.

Good day to you.
