a friend of mine and racism

Hi, I was talking to a friend of mine, and I tried telling him that all human races are the same, there is no 1 race that is superior to the others, and then he told me- how come there isn't even 1 successful country in Africa. So I told him that the climate there isn't as nice as in other parts of the world, so it's hard to develop the economy there, but he wasn't convinced. What should I have told him to persuade him?

Re: a friend of mine and racism

to answer that question

multiple factors

plus culture is different from race

perception of what qualifies as success is also different among people in this world, so his narrow definition of success may not apply

Re: a friend of mine and racism

תגיד לו שהוא חתיכת מגעיל ושלא יעשה לאחרים מה שלא היה רוצה שיעשו לו, בהתחשב בעובדה שהוא יהודי והוא מכיר מקרוב מה זה שנאה ,גזענות ואנטישמיות עליו להיות עם לב פתוח ואוהב ושתחושת העליונות שלו היא גזענות טהורה, כאילו שהוא הכי יפה הכי חכם הכי מוכשר
יש לו פשוט מזל להיוולד בישראל ולא במקום אחר.

sorry about the hebrew.
tell him that he is lucky to be born where he is and that africa's problem is that she was used by everyone throw history and never got a real chance, its a very rich country the problem is that the she is divided by tribes among other problems

Do I understand there is no truth to that?

What disturbing about this thread, even though some of the comments are well intentioned, is the condescension that permeates the posts.

To-date, there are bilateral treaties signed between France and many of the Francophone countries at the times of independence.
The terms of these treaties literally give away the African countries raw material, they are so beneficial.


Cote d'Ivoire is the first producer of cocoa in the world, Swiss chocolate is the most famous in the world.

In addition, the economic system by which success is measured is foreign to the African countries.


That is not to say African leader do not bear any responsibility on the plight of the countries.


Currently, China is making inroads in Africa, and their selling point they are pushing to African leaders is our relationship will be based on mutual respect, unlike the current one you have with European countries.
Whether China will actually follow up with their promise, it is too early to tell, but the steeling point do resonate.

Until recently, African Francophone countries were supporting the French currency, the French Franc.



Props to Bosco for pushing back, but every bosco, there are many other non-Bosocoes who go along this type statement.

Before long, a discussion that started as an economic development debate will quickly transition to a territory where all parties agree the lack of progress can be attributed to intellectual deficiency of African, the black Africans.
The participants may not know it, but for African observers, it bring the discussion full circle.
It is how the colonists used to talk African while stationed in African colonies.

Of course, there is some truth to that, but that cannot count as an excuse forever. The last African countries have become independent some 60 years ago, that's 2 generations. And they are, where they are.

Many countries have a lot of ressources and can be compared to have had a start like China. And now look where China is and where any African country is.

You can't even blame it on the lack of democracy, that is as absent in most African countries as it is in China. And Africa had the advantage of billions and billions of money being poured there. To no avail.

So, what is it that makes Africa a completely failed continent? No African country is close to anything which can be considered an industrial country and being the main producers of food in this and that department is also fine, but with those basics which are subject to very volatile prices, you cannot run a country.

Education is the key to wealth. That seems to be lacking. And not because of some intellectual malfunction, but if you gotta walk some kilometers to your nearest elementary school, let alone "high school" or "university" you keep a population which is rather shallow.

Re: a friend of mine and racism

South Africa is an emerging economy. Just a passing observation, ex-British colonies seem to do better economically than say ex-Spanish or ex-French. Singapore, Hong Kong, US, Canada, Australia vs South America, Indochina.
