    We are so "advanced" only because we stole everything they had and used them as free labour.


    Or maybe I should not have used past sentence, we are still doing it.....

    Erm no, we are advanced due to the renaissance, the industrial revolution etc. The holy empire of rome 2000 years ago was more advanced than Africa was 100 years ago.

    And what exactly are we supposed to have stolen ? The reason for colonialism in Africa was to secure trade routes to the far east and India.

    Did what were we supposed to have stolen ? All their fruit and veg ? :confused:

    Ireland was colonised for many centuries longer than Africa, and now look at Ireland.

    Precious metals. Africa was once very rich in them. They still have quite a lot of resources but the poor have no access to them themselves and often are forced to mine for international companies.

    Without a fairer distribution of wealth (as in the west) and a tighter control on dictatorships that want to keep the poor, poor, there will be little access to education and the poor are kept poor and uneducated.

    I think you've confused immigration and black people.

    You seem to be fine with Italians and "white civilisation" so I shall assume you're just a common racist troll.

    Indeed, question is where you draw the line though, difficult to reach consensus on: asylum seekers, non-European economic migrants, European economic migrants, returning ex-pats/descendants.. :confused:

    Hate to break up the party but the later part of the industrial revolution e.g. post early modern era, was to a certain extent fueled by globalisation. Prosperity and correlated development definitely benefitted from raw materials, factor price efficiency gains and emerging markets enabled through slavery, subjugation and exploitation in/of foreign lands and peoples, among other things :rolleyes:

    I see so we stole all their precious metals. :rolleyes:

    And we are not responsible for wealth distribution in Africa, Africans are responsible for wealth distribution :rolleyes:

    Wow. Somebody needs to do some more research.

    Ancient Egypt ring any bells? Where was that? Ah , yes Africa.

    I think you'll find that the general consensus is that Egypt was seen as the most 'advanced' ancient society.
