It's often stated that the notion that Africa was a wilderness inhabited by hunter gatherer tribes prior to the arrival of Europeans is false and that many people think nothing happened there from 100,000 to 130 years ago.

But what I think is overlooked but is far more relevant is that too many people think nothing's changed in Africa from decolonization (or at least since the early 2000s) to the present which is equally untrue. To deflect issue away from systemic racism directed at the African diaspora, reactionaries often talk about how much violence and poverty is prevalent in Africa to push the narrative that "black criminality" is due to geneti- ahem* culture. Not sure how that adds up because the slaves had their culture torn away from them but anyway, if you look at the trends in global violence, violence in Africa has gone dramatically from what it was in 1985-2005. [https://ourworldindata.org/war-and-peace ] I mean there was an uptick in recent years BUT that includes North Africa which has become embroiled in the "Arab Winter" so take that with a pinch of salt. Also, life expectancy has gone up:

Hunger has almost halved from what it was in the 1990s

So Africa may not be as developed as East Asians, it's not the brutish cesspit that these bigoted dip-shits imagine And not addressing systemic racism in the criminal justice system is going to hurt our relationships with this growing part of the world:So it's not that I'm trying to blame whitey for the state that Africa's in, it's that the image of it that the reactionaries are portraying is both exaggerated and outdated.
