re: Why Is Africa Continent Still Full Of “Developing Countries “?
It’s amazing that the problems that plague the Africans seem to follow them wherever they go. Jamaica, Haiti, and even in more developed countries such as the United States. However in these more developed countries the excuse that is given is that the blacks are oppressed or that they are subjected to racism that keeps them from reaching their full potential. There are a multitude of excuses, but none of them place blame on the blacks themselves. Weird right?

St. Lucia, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago. I'll concede Canada as being developed, Bahamas as the next best... probably better than 50/50 on the other 20 north american countries as being underdeveloped af. Our president calls them shite holes, no?
Holy crap, you're one dumb SOAB.

Tribalism. Until neighboring tribes learn to trust their neighbors and forget 9 generation old grievances they will be nothing more than they are now.

If you actually want to understand this, I recommend reading Jared Diamond's Pulitzer Prize winner Guns, Germs, and Steel. It's a complicated historical question and you're not going to find a short explaination.

That being said, I doubt you really want answers-- this is so plainly a race-baiting thread. Kind of ironic considering the board consensus tends towards accusing progressives of racializing everything.

Colonialism is a blip on the historical register. It’s a short period of European rule, bookended by African governance.


There are numerous reasons why colonialism is the bag flaming dog shite on Africas doorstep. There are numerous reasons why the problems it caused continue to be unresolved. Obviously the indigenous people should rise above but its not like they were handed a blank slate either.

No, you can still find a short explanation:

Eurasian agrarian societies out-competed traditional hunter-gatherer societies in Africa, North America, South America, etc.

That's a pretty shallow analysis and doesn't get to the why.

Why were they, as you put it, "out-competed?"

Because an agrarian society can support a larger population, leading to specialization and technological advancement.

We were once all hunter-gatherers. Eurasians evolved. The rest of the world didn't. They were then conquered by the more evolved society.

Nothing different than what has been happening for hundreds of millions of years on this planet.

ETA: The exception to this would be the central american civilizations like the Aztec, Maya, and Inca to the south. They were well on their way in terms of advancement, but European diseases kicked them square in the balls.

It's all explained in Sun People, Ice People by Leonard Jeffries. Africans had lots of food (plants growing wild and animals). It never got scarce in winter. So, they had no motivation to innovate. They were peaceful and happy and had no need to conquer anybody .

White people faced hardship in winter. So to survive they learned to plan and scheme and invade people to rob them of their stuff.

Why did some regions transition from hunter gatherers to farmers before others?

Every time I answer you're just going to get more and more granular.

Eurasian agrarian societies out-competed hunter-gatherers. The why's don't really matter, outside of scientists who specialize in those areas.

Not shallow, accurate. Is your eventual point going to be it's just not fair that Eurasian societies developed technology?

How is it circular?
