It does depend on perspective, what do you make of the western African King Mansa Musa, who is considered the wealthiest individual in human history only 800 or so years ago?

Dont misunderstand me, Im not knocking any achievements. Im aware of Mali, Songhai and other empires, Im just saying its a fact that there werent as many as in Europe, Middle-East and Asia, and also they developed fairly late, probably because of trade/contact with Islam.

Look at this map and scroll to the 1400s.

Now Im sure African culture in general is very rich, I havent studied that very much, perhaps I will.


It's just a ride.

I'm interested to see what difference the  Chinese involvement in Africa makes to  African's prosperity and development. I've read about China's construction projects like roads, railways etc. 


Relax, it's just my loosely held opinion.  :)

I think the next one should be the empires of the Aborigenes in Australia

If you are so close-minded, why even engage in the discussion?


Release me.
