Africa is CONTINENT, not a country.
We do not SPEAK AFRICAN, there are over 3,000 unique languages with over 8,000 dialects.
We are not a MONOLITHIC group; not only does each country, tribe, region, Etc have a distinct culture to them, the way they dance and express rhythm and dress varies as well.
We have a history RICHER than the European continent, sadly the Europeans have white washed, raped, assimilated and destroyed a lot of it.
Africa is a RICH continent, but due to colonization most of our resources are being stolen and the European military and monarchy is making sure it stays that way.
Our people are beautiful; being black is a blessing never a curse. Our skin keeps is young and beautiful. It protects is from the sun and shields is from weatherly dangers.
Western European beauty standards are fallacies.
Africa is more than a continent, it’s a life.

Or could make you look annoying
Wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein first saw this unusually colored zebra a couple years ago at a camp he runs in Kenya and has been keeping an eye on it ever since. The animal travels alone rather than with a herd like most zebras and he always seems pissed off.
A Black Zebra with White Stripes :D
Those piles of ruins which you see in that narrow valley watered by the Nile, are the remains of opulent cities, the pride of
the ancient kingdom of Ethiopia…. There a people, now forgotten, discovered while others were yet barbarians, the elements
of the arts and the sciences. A race of men now rejected from society for their sable skin and frizzled hair, founded on the
study of the laws of nature, those civil and religious systems which still govern the universe.
