What is causing the Africa-Europe migrant crisis?Watch
Obviously I can understand why Syrians and Iraqis are fleeing to Europe, regardless of the legality of this. But why are so many sub-Saharan Africans now coming to Europe? Are they also fleeing wars, like in Somalia and Mali, or are they economic migrants? And if they are econ migrants, why are they only coming in such large numbers now (2015-2018)? It’s just that I often see news reports of boats filled with people who are obviously African in the Mediterranean.
Better life in west, education, jobs, peace, standard of living, mortality.
Theres also a lot more wars, inequality and corruption to flee from.

Its funny how people see Italy as this aryan homeland, where africans did not exist before 2010 lmao. Italy's relation with Africa, particularly North Africa has existed for centuries. Some of the oldest culture in Italy is from North Africa. All of Sicily's tradition is what is today because of africans. Even the language. Losers like Kate Hopkins will tell you the likes of Italy and Spain are "historical white countries" and its just not true lol
Hannibal was largely unsuccessful. All he really managed was a grand tour of Southern Europe and his battlefield successes were not appreciated at home. Essentially, the Councils of Carthage saw it as funding hugely expensive military expeditions that seemed only to consume resources and realise no treasure nor political gain.
