    No one ever ventured beyond the boundries of their own continent?

    I was thinking about this last night while watching the Obama party. I came to the conclusion that Natives would still be fishing and hunting with bows, spears and nets. Blacks would still be in Africa, AIDS free. Europe would be insanely crowded but otherwise, not a lot different than we our lives today. China would be poor because they wouldn't be able to export their crap to the rest of the world.

    Blacks bitch about the slave days, but ultimately, they have a better life today because they, for a short period (relatively speaking) in history, had it bad. Throughout history, there have been slaves. How do you think the Pyramids were built? There's more slaves today than there ever have been in the history of our planet. Not much is being said or done about that, is there? A little, but not enough to make a difference in the world.

    I think it's about time the each ethnic group STFU about problems that happened 100, 200, 500+ years ago. Forget that you have brown skin. Forget that your Great Great Great Great Great Grandfather could hunt or fish whenever they wanted. We're all people. We all live on the same planet. A populus planet which is constantly becoming more crowded. We all share the same things. We have more opportunity now than ever before and it's all thanks to shit that went down in history. Sorry it happened, but most people are better off because of it.

    Thoughts?

    I agree to an extent. Countries in Africa were rich until Europeans plundered them. So if we had left Africa alone there is a good chance they would be a very wealthy continent right now, which would be a lot different than the state they are currently in. So do blacks really have it better then they could have? Who knows.

    No you can not have free universities... that would put me out of job :)

    Well said buddy.

    Problems like education, health care etc... was created in Africa by "white" man by opressing the blacks and natives. This opression only really lifted about 50 years ago. They have been living in those conditions for hundres of years. I think they have the right to bitch about it for a while.

    Blacks in North America on the other hand has no right to bitch since most of them born with the same rights and advantages as rest of us.

    Indians in Canada is in the same boat as the blacks in North america. They have no right to whine.

    Problems in Africa on the other hand is soley "whities" fault

    I can respect that. Thanks for clarifying.

    My knowledge of African history is...well...non-existant so my ignorance is easily visible. :)

    The birthplace of civilization was in mesopotamia and later Egypt and Anatolia...
    They were most likely ruled by Hittites (Some of the first known Whities)

    Hittities:
    Natives of Anatolia, the warlike and highly advanced Hittites were the first people to make extensive use of metals and war chariots. They spoke an Aryan language, the first recorded Indo-European language. Genetically, Hittites were Armenid, a theorized sub-group of the Caucasian (white) race that is native to the region in question. Sometimes this racial type is refered to as Armenoid.

    Yes they did. They had a very well educated culture in most parts of Africa. A lot of important things that we use today have their origins in Africa. So how anyone can say they have always been uneducated and stupid is beyond me.

    When you look pre-industrial age most of the world was very close to each other in education and living standarts. Once the industrial revolution took off in Europe (Fueled by endless wars trying to kill each other faster) need for raw materials pushed europeans to colonize other parts of the world. This is when the civilizations in Africa stopped developing.

    Easiest way to control people is to keep them poor and uneducated. That is what europeans did. That is why when you travel to Africa you feel like you go back in time.

    Take a trip down there. You will understand what I mean.
