Great post, op. Sort of on the same subject... misconceptions and disinformation are often systemic, and maps are tools that have been used for hundreds of years to further the agendas of many mentally ill and power hungry people.

Most of us are probably familiar with the Mercator map projection. There are many others, though. They all have to be distorted in some way, but some are more selfishly and/or maliciously distorted than others.

Ever wonder what state the world would be in if Europeans never invaded and r*ped Africa.

With all the resources in the continent needed for today technology being sourced from Africa. Africa really could’ve been Wakanda. Just think of all the gold that was found their recently as well. All the animals the invaders over hunted and pushed to extinction. All the history from the country being told from white lips. Man it’s so much.

Africa is really supposed to be a super power continent

Though maps do shrink the size of Africa, this video doesn't really help by putting countries inside a continent

Africa wasn't corrupt until influenced by false poverty by Europeans. They made the richest country believe it was the poorest country.

Plus if you think these other first world countries ain't corrupt you dead wrong and they all seem to be thriving just fine.

Thread for remedial people. This is common knowledge.

This "true size of Africa" thread is just one of those things that will come up every couple of years, as someone sees it for the first time and "feels" it needs to be shared/seen by the rest of the world.

But please share with us, what else is "common knowledge" along the same line?... I'm curious.

everywhere is corrupt

the endemic political corruption you hear about in the global south is done in partnership with MNCs from the supposedly transparent countries at the top of all those indexes but the poorer ones suffer the brunt of reputational damages

consider that switzerland is commonly considered one of the least corrupt places on earth. lol

let's not even talk about the US and UK

I think Africa's issue is they have too many countries. The world has 195 countries and 27% is in Africa. 54 countries is silly imho. Africa is the biggest continent so should also have the biggest countries. All of the super powers are big a*s countries. Africa should have half of the countries imho and they should have the top 5 biggest countries... Listen to Caste by Isabel Wickerson btw and you'll be more upset on how these countries purposely did black people to keep them at the bottom... Lastly, if the countries in Africa coulda kept their resources, 30 countries woulda been Dubai like. Just see how they operate in Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it woulda been like that times 30! Them people couldn't have that sh*t! Those African countries wasn't ready for that sh*t...

Off topic but just crazy sh*t I think, I believe white folks had a different creator than African. Neanderthal is different than human and Neanderthals we're here 1st so it seems they may have had a head start and the worse thing that happened was humans blended with them. They brought 2 sides to the game when humans only brought 1! Long story short is we did it to ourselves! It's like they're creator literally gave them the recipe and black folks creator was just like, "what else do y'all want? Everyone here because of y'all!, ok bye..."

The ADOS/fba on this site hate Africans on here but love Black Panther movies and anything that makes Africa look good

Is it One Mic or Oochie Wally


Personally I've always had good interactions with African people.

I donít know what you mean along the same line. You gotta be more specific. This is common knowledge because itís taught in middle/highschool. Everyone that has any education whatsoever should know Africa is big af.

This perspective is unique in a good way. Never heard anyone look at it like that. Out of pure curiosity, where would the East Asian people fall in that ideology? Being that you said "black" & "white" exclusively.

Here's my sometimes theory on blacks and white. I respect karma so sometimes I tend to think that at some point in time, or an alternate universe if I may, blacks ran the world and did evil to people. Now this is our time to be on the negative side of karma.

Most of your "big" countries of the world are big in land mass because they fought to obtain more land that at one point was not considered "theirs"

This happens through a series of conquest and annexation. They come in and then they commit Ethnocide, denying the ethnic group the right to transmit its own culture

This is far from being practiced in Africa as if you look at the most populous country, Nigeria, whose people collectively belong to over 300 tribes have separate and independent histories with different cultures

Hell even grouping them into a single entity known as Nigeria was a construct by British colonizers
