The thread is about South Africa or Africa in general....if its the latter then the Nigerian army which fights boko haram is proof that some Africans are highly intelligent and motivated people.






Moulin it makes no sense to say Africa is a **** because after all some Africans care about their homeland. In fact a # of African Muslims died protecting African Christians from a al shabbab attack...

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-35151967



You dont see many liberals trashing entire continents, but just look at the words of some conservatives...of course lets give Moulin a chance to come in and maybe clarify what he meant when he said Africa was a ****...

The reason why Africa struggles more so then North America is because of disunity.....to that point African men like Gaddafi(once a friend to the so called west) pushed for ideals of African pride and rejecting the lazy lifestyle...but of course some in the west can not make up their mind on whom to support....even when the choices are a Gaddafi or a AQ type group. So at this point it is vital for the world to support Africans who believe in universal rights among man...and with time God willing Africa as a whole will improve...

There is not any ethnicity that is lazy...and the so called racist argument whomever it is directed at will always fail. Nowadays we have disgruntled atheists and theists in our world trying to jam their views down the throats of tolerate Atheists and theists trying to tell us that there is a problem with religion when in reality the problem is with intolerant people like the Boko Haram group and North Korea regime two entities one atheist and one muslim..... that seek to divide good people ...


Africans contributed to the Roman Empire, as well as Christian Europe, as well as to the various Islamic Empires of Africa and the ME....Spain as well there were the black moors.

Glory to Africa, glory to Jihad, glory to Crusade......

Christians and Muslims unite against Boko Haram in Cameroon

A key challenge for SA is to manage large population growth against a background of sustained and very high unemployment and migration from neighbours.

South Africa has also tried hard to diversify from mining and agriculture into service sector activity like banking. I would think the dwindling white population is especially important in this sector and if the best educated whites are driven out, the SA economy will pay the price.

SA maybe needs to consider improved birth control policies to curb the population boom as a priority.

Nigeria and Zambia some time ago - both utterly corrupt but both with some good people embedded in the mess.

Ancient Egypt as previously discussed was a multicultural Kingdom/Empire...it was open to men and women with disabilities... Later in the mid 20th century which should be termed as the European dark ages Catholic men such as Adolf Hitler sought to totally wipe out Disabled people....Here in this case Africa of 2000+ years ago totally destroys Germany of the Third Reich era in terms of greatness, success, tolerance. Ancient Egypt is better then much of Europe of the mid 20th century in terms of social success.

One dwarf proves nothing. Dwarfs have been a familiar sight in royal courts for thousands of years, usually they were employed as jesters and buffoons but occasionally one might achieve greater things Diego de Acedo, was a dwarf in the service of the Spanish Royal Court during the 17th century. | A learned man he was in charge of all royal publications. This by no means proves that the Spanish court was inclusive - it was not any more than was the ancient Egyptian one - you are gullible. Eunochs also sometimes rose to high positions.

Don't worry SA is not imploding. This is a Zuma issue, he just a highly corrupt president that even the ANC and it's supports are divided on. The largest trade union in the country and part of the triparthied alliance (that include the ANC and the south African communist party) did not invite him to there annal gathering basically saying they don't like him, the SACP all so does not like him and even in the ANC he has had to defend against 2 attempts to replace him? My money is after the new election who ever wins will go after him and his family. The only reason he has any support is because he has power to hire and fire cabinet minsters.


Economically speaking most of Africa's economic powers are in a recitation. Nigeria contracted by 2.06% that was 2016. South Africa contracted by 0.7. with the biggest causes of the losses from manufacturing sector and Trade, Catering and accommodation. Both Mining, Agriculture, fishery and forestry increased.


In short tourism and finished goods.
Though seeing how a 100 000 annal capacity factory closed because GM cant sell cars I could see that being a causes just as much as Zuma.

and Africa can't even feed themselves now, while Germany is an economic powerhouse--and they have food!!
...you shot yourself in the foot
Germany vs Africa??!!??
my Kenyan friend said they hardly ever saw a car when he was young..there weren't that many..they had to ride double or triple on bicycles
..not many cars, starving, aids, Somalia, chopped with machetes, etc --sounds like paradise

Corrupt African president - a tautology these days - if not corrupt before taking office they don't seem to loose much time once in office

the Pakistan tanker deaths reminded me of Africa
Africa is a whole different world
here in the US, people would be rushing away from a tanker crash, because it is dangerous!
in Africa they rush toward the danger

A lot of liberals thought Venezuela was going to recover a couple years ago. South Africa is just another example of the failure of collectivist mentality.
