Hi, Tumblr! Quick PSA

eastafrodite:

What Africa is:
- a continent consisting of over 50 sovereign nations, all of which have unique social, political and economical dynamics
- a continent that hosts thousands of recognized languages and ethnic groups
- the most climatically diverse body of land on Earth; there are deserts, savannas, prairies, tundras, grasslands and rainforests, all of which sustain a separate environment
-a collection of countries, each of which suffer setbacks and encounter triumphs, just like every other collection of countries

What Africa is not:
- a homogeneous region
- the inspiration to finish your dinner
- full of disease, famine and political conflicts
- a place to go and discover yourself, at the price of people’s dignity and respect
- a preidentifier for anything; the label “Africa” says nothing considering how diverse the continent is
- a dichotomous third world with America, the people in Ethiopia encounter small, tedious issues like setting their alarm clocks and spilling coffee on their clothes too
