    Pic 1 is of British troops. And most black slaves were enslaved by Arabs, not `the rest of the world`.
    And the ARABS were the ones who were well educated and civilized... 1000 years ago.
    Africa`s always been pretty drated up.

    Deathbringer, if you`re French, you must not live in France. I live in America and I know that the photo is of a march in protest to a law now being debated by the French government to illegalize the wearing of Muslim veils in public, that will most likely be passed.

    The idea that Europeans are all "thin, muscular, beautiful and smart" is the most closed-minded idea I have ever heard propagated by American women who always think that the grass is greener on the other side.

    > auburnjunky
    > Australians have been worse to the brown people of their country than we have

    America is a (no offense) war nation; Australia never has been. There was no Indian-War type campaign against aborigines; instead, our ancestors simply treated them like ignorant, dirty morons who needed to be taught to read, write, wear clothes, etc. Which is worse - shooting someone or patronizing them? That depends on your individual moral view. BOTH approaches led to basically the same thing, the near-extermination of the native peoples. I don`t think words like "worse than" apply to either; whatever the intent or the method, genocide is genocide.

You know that if it weren`t for the French you`d be speaking British English and drinking tea right? drating relax already, who gives a poo what country killed the most natives hundreds of years ago?

    Alright, let`s just start posting links asking whether USA is better than X country or not. Sound good? Goddamn dude, all I`m saying is no one with half a brain gives a drat. You`re proud of your country and I`m proud of mine (you more so than me because there are some embarrassing things in Sweden), the US isn`t going to grow as a nation just because you`re yelling at some dude on the internet.

    Do not insult the Abba!

    I haven`t lived in Sweden for ten years, most I remember was eating swedish hot dogs, playing ice hockey, and making fun of norwegians. Has it really changed so much in 10 years?

    "africa as it down, intolerance of anything new is the way to go."-MrVandercar

    Right. It`s definitely "intolerance of anything new" that`s keeping Africa in poverty.

    Well Africa is rich....the people here count wealth by how many cattle they own, how many wives they have and how much food they have on their plate. It`s just a different definition of "rich". People here don`t care about money, money means nothing...all it is is paper. And when you look at it from that perspective it`s not really that bad at all

    Hey, we also gave the world Europe, who made the Final Countdown. Your welcome, world.

    The Sweden one is factual in disturbingly large amounts of the country. Of course, they`re mocked mercilessly by the sane people, but still, there are too many of them. We call them "stekare", if anyone cares.

    We don`t mock the poor sods in elhadjis image. Well, I don`t. It`s too easy. Sorta like mocking furries. We do point and laugh.

    Also, if it weren`t for america, we`d be swearing in swedish.

    So Africa is poor and uncivilized? Seriously? You`re judging every single person in an entire continent because of your insane American/European stereotypes. Seriously, how many of you have been to Africa? I can safely say that South Africa (where I`m from) is as urbanised as any other place. Seriously, we don`t live in drating mud huts. Why don`t you do some drating research before you judge an entire continent? Idiots! Also, fleh, are you even from africa at all?

    addler, the problem with your comment is the fact that you are all saying that the whole of Africa is poor, and all I`m saying is that not everyone in Africa is poor. I never said that every single person in Africa is rich, but you`re saying we`re ALL poor. South Africa, for example, is mostly not rich, but certainly isn`t poor. In other words, stop being a smart-ass.

    Breadman you seem to be a bit of a moron so let`s slow it down for you.
    Each picture is a stereotype on the left, and a stereotype on the right.
    Everyone here knows that not 100% of each country is accurately depicted by either side.
    To me it seems pretty obvious that you wanted to announce to i-a-b that you`re from Africa.
    Great, South Africa and plenty of other city centers are urbanized, but 1. Most Americans don`t realize/care about that and 2. Much of Africa is not urbanized or modernized.
    In the meantime you should really buy a box of tissues and dry your eyes.

    premierwondr,you clearly never read the earlier comments on this, or properly read my comment. If you had, you would have realised that a good part of your argument is invalid because I clearly stated that I was not claiming that Africa was all, or even mostly rich, but that many of us are. You would also have noticed that my comments were not directed at the pictures themselves, but at the people commenting about Africa. Also,since you like to stereotype about the lack of intelligence of Africans, you`re a real dumbass for saying, "Most Americans don`t realize/care about that", when, in fact, you are admitting that Americans are too stupid to take note of basic geography and history, such as the fact that not all Africans are poor. Not only that, but you continue to display your ignorance by referring to an entire country as a "city center". If you meant that only South Africa`s city centre is urbanised, then you are even more of an idiot, because the entire countr

(Ek neem aan jy`t gepraat van die zulu`s...)Seriously, I personally don`t really want my country to be joked about in a way in which it is highly questionable whether or not it is a joke, especially by people who know nothing about it except for what they have heard. (Verskoon asseblief my afrikaans, ek skryf nie rerig gereeld nie.) En ek bly ook in Johannesburg. what are the odds?

    By saying that Africans live in mud huts, are poor, blah blah blah, you are claiming that (because all countries are seperately run, and thus have different economies), there are at least a reasonably high amount of people in any one country that are poor and "primitive" enough to live in mud huts. Using South Africa as an example, I can say that those claims are not true. In fact, since I AM and African, I strongly doubt that you, who has probably never been to Africa, would know more about it than me. So just worry about your own problems instead of talking about how uncivilised Africa is, until you have been here to see for yourself.

    Hulle gebruik nogsteeds koie vir geld jong!! Ek se vir jou nou...as `n man will iemand trou dan hulle gebruik godsteeds koie vir lebolla.My maid was still bought that way the other day dude, by my gardener. His family gave her family 16 cows for her. That`s what i was referring to. Lebolla. Dai mense doen dinge in die selle maneer dat hulle dit altyd gedoen het. Kyk net vir Zuma. En as jy Transkei toe gaan is dit net so, koie en skaap is soos geld. Jy kan `n shack in die Transkei koop vir net twee koie. And yeah it does kind of suck when people rip off things they don`t know anything about, but trying to explain what it`s like here over IAB is futile, so just chill man :) And Joburg kicks drating ass man.
