"What kind of world do we live in when the views of the oppressed are
expressed at the convenience of their oppressors?" - Owen 'Alik Shahadah
Simply put, Africa is the natural place or fatherland of Africans and their descendants in the Diaspora. The skin colour, history, culture, and climate are specific adaptations to living in Africa. Africa is the most richest place on the planet and everyone knows that. Yet, Africans are the poorest of the poor. For centuries foreign invaders looted the continent, while brutally oppressing the natives. Even missionaries left their wayward homelands to "save" the "cannibals and savages." They justified their actions by merely pointing out the so-called inferiority of Africans put forward by Darwin's theory. Darwin’s book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, Or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life (1859), laid the groundwork for their worldviews. They each applied the principle of ‘survival of the fittest’ to their situation.
