Why is Africa the poorest continent and least advanced in technology?


People have lived in Africa longer than any other continent except maybe Asia and those peeps are either controlled by dictators or are dependant on other countries to help them survive. They also spread the aids really fast too. Are these people cursed? What's the deal, yo?

The nation of South Africa has some pretty advanced technology, but that was when they were able to keep the natives down.

(1) European imperialism
(2) subsequent long-lasting European exploitation
(3) the way the world treats them as a charity case, just throwing aid money at them, but no real investment.
