Someone said "Are you really so stupid to think that Africa has the same technological advances as us? If they did they would probably have clean water and not live in houses made of sticks and mud. Get over yourself and stop being so ignorant."..... Below is a tiny collection of images of the Africa they refuse to show you..

I’m sorry you’ve been made to believe that the whole of Africa is poor, I really am..

Reblogging for those of you who think Africa is only what the media and movies portrays it to be

This fucks me up because it’s scary to think that we can be showed something all our lives and not even know it’s a lie

And that my friend is the power of propaganda, indoctrination, and media

Are these pictures of South Africa or of Africa as a whole? 

@the-collecting-turnip From top to bottom:

1. Port Elizabeth (South Africa)

2. Unknown

3. Nairobi (Kenya)

4. Pretoria (South Africa)

5. Aburi Botanical Gardens (Ghana)

6. Cape Town (South Africa)

7. Pretoria (South Africa)

8. Harare (Zimbabwe)

9. Windhoek (Namibia)

10. Windhoek (Namibia)

To @kushandwizdom this is a rather unfair portrayal of Africa as a whole since half of these are literally just South Africa.  So Instead to add to this post and better dispel the myth of Africa as the vast wasteland of poverty most people think, I found a much more mixed collection of pics from various countries.

Luanda, Angola

Agadir, Morocco

Lagos, Nigeria

Cairo, Egypt

Port Louis, Mauritius

Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire

Algiers, Algeria

Tripoli, Libya

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Tunis, Tunisia

So, there, a much better case demonstrating the various major cities around Africa showing it isn’t some technologically backwards continent, but actually pretty up-and-coming in the world of commerce.

these look so beautiful omg

Lets not forget the beauty that is Chefchaouen, Morocco;

Absolutely magical place. I visited there over 20 years ago and what was remarkable was how cool the blue walls were to the touch. And the Moroccan people are so friendly and hospitable.

@spacemonkeyg78 this is a shade lighter than the blue I was talking about last summer.

Africa is a whole damn continent and people still have the audacity to think those commercials of mud huts are actually the entire country. it’s not a shocker as Africa is a majority black country and you know how that’s received by white media.

People who believe that Africa is this struggling continent of poor countries based on how Africa is portrayed in American movies and tv shows without doing real research are just ignorant.

hot take: moms need to learn how to listen to and comfort their daughters without making everything about their own traumas

a classic example

daughter: hey this thing you do bothers me very much and i wish you wouldn’t do it

mom: well my parents abused me and im not even as bad as they were and i had to sit through it so you gotta sit through whatever i do to you too

@copperbadge, I thought this might make your day.

It reminds me of the posts about how Robert sounds like Radish in Chinese, so they call him Little Radish Downey, and they call Chris Evans Peach or Kiwi depending on his facial hair.

a butch i’m friends with has told me what it was like for her in her youth and its so fucked! she went to college in the mid 70s, keep in mind too that it was a PUBLIC state college not even a religious one, and it was literally against the rules for women to not wear dresses. workplaces were universally the same (unless of course you passed). last time i was with her and another old butch they talked about how it was normal in lesbian culture to have half your friends immediately go to the bathroom and change when they went out to bars after work or school, like unquestioned thats just what all the butches and dykes did. you’d see em for a sec in day-drag and they’d come back out as themselves, unquestioned. anyways, in the 1990s my friend was working as a lawyer in the southwest and she literally could not enter the courtroom in pants or else the judge would tell her to leave and it would hurt her case too. like, i was alive then? it was not a long time ago? its fucking nuts that people think that women being able to dress practically is just like women getting away with shit when they fought tooth and nail and organized to be able to do it. and yknow what, today in 2018, women can wear jeans without question, but they sure as fuck can’t look like too ~manly~ and be left alone, i can attest to that, so uh, yeah, women keep breaking the rules for years and getting beat up and excluded and marginalized and humiliated and shamed until its normalized and then the second it is everyone with the memory of a goldfish is like “wow women can wear pants, privilege!”

Hi! Just as a warning, if any of you all plan to see Deadpool, there are some pretty heavy suicide themes to the film. They are NOT treated as a joke in any manner, in fact it’s taken (for a Deadpool film) quite seriously, but I wanted to warn you all in advance that there is a scene in which a character attempts suicide and makes references throughout the film about wanting to die. I do think the movie is very much worth seeing, but I wanted to share because this matter is quite upsetting and triggering to many and I thought a warning was in order.
