If You want to penetrate Africa... Simply act humble and praise them. They will give you everything plus their consciousness and even their minds while accepting miseducation

The media doesn't "want" us to think Africa has problems. The only thing worthwhile in africa are the things built by people from the outside. Africans haven't even succeede setting up a bike factory on their own. Thhis is just tendentious manipulation of the truth.

I'm from Sudan and I love my homie Africa... Mom africa

It's funny how particular people are surprised by this. I wasn't. Did you really think the entire African continent was tiny villages of huts??? You've been given a false vision and didn't even bother to question it until now. Good video.

Talent is not evenly distributed around the world. Tendency for 913 scams are a Nigerian thing. Yes, crime is all around the world. But crime in my continent will not only steal your cellphone, it will kill you. Just read our local papers.

He should have censored the images of these African children as their genitals are clearly visible. Pixelation should have sufficed. What about their consent and decency? Being kids, did their parents or guardians know that their pictures will be beamed to a global audience without their clothes on? I agree with some of his points but we must be careful in overlooking further abuses in a bid to fight a monstrous injustice.

Awesome presentation Mr. Zmyslowski, the world need more people like you! alot of stereotypes, esp from a certain country we all know, some pretend like fundraising but making their own bank accounts big, some come here for instagram photos holding & peck kissing kids, bucket list check ups or to impress their fraternity friends.

I think I love his teachings, In the other hand I think he's also teaching them to keep on pressing Africa's economy down in other not to let them rise as was said. That is making them a jealousy minded people. In 2100 Africa and Asia will be the best place to live in than in the United States and Europe.

Joe G. (25 дней назад)
It's all good and great for the Africans in the comments here jubilating on what's been pointed out in this video. But the big question is, what are we ourselves doing to change the narrative? We are not looking inward enough when an African needs more visas in Africa than a westerner, an African will buy imported goods from the West as opposed from his fellow African. We need to make it easy for our people to move freely across borders and trade will surely open up the opportunities therein.

Anything making Africa look bad is it's leaders (governments). Most of them are greedy folks, really greedy folks. If not for them things would have been way better a very long time ago

Funny my country Zimbabwe is not mentioned here. Due to cash shortages and Lack of its own currency, I can bet Zimbabwe is among the top 5 African countries leading in mobile banking.........and even mobile internet!

European, but ive been living in africa for a fuckton of time. Africa develops when it comes to buildings and businessess. Thing is, african countries are rigged with corruption and inflation. Other issue is people's morals and their education. Lots of people i know think going to school is useless and that they should stay home working on their gardens. Lots of people in africa have morals that differ too much from ours. At least in Mozambique, i see that most people are quite sexist, don't understand and don't want to be taught otherwize. People need to be taught, their morals and non productive habits and culture needs to change. In order for a country to be actually functjonal, people need functional education. From what I have been witnessing for years, people here think that their social status will rise by having lots of kids. By having lots of kids in a poor country, there's no way their economy will cover anything. Solution is: change your habits, your morals, stop having lots of kids and accept that corruption is wrong.
