This notion that people who see Africa as backwards, barbaric, and inferior, necessarily "hate" Africa and Africans, is nonsense.

According to the narrator, the concept of development is a product of colonialism and therefore racist.

That means the HDI (Human Development Index) run by the UN (an organization that loves Africa) is racist.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Development_Index#/media/File:2016_UN_Human_Development_Report.svg

You recognize that France has more hospitals per person than Angola? Racist.
The British have less starvation than the Congo? Racist.
Germany has a longer life expectancy than South Africa? Racist.

The narrator actually makes an excellent point. The climate of Africa makes farming the same land year after year impossible. Tribes have to constantly move and thus any line the Europeans drew to divide Africa along ethno-linguistic lines would have been useless in a few years. Reminder: There are 300 languages in Africa but only 50 ish nations.

The only way to build an "African Civilization" is to abolish these ethno-linguistic dividers and create a nation not based on shared language, culture, or history but based on necessity. If Africa reverted to its pre-colonial times then its citizens would live even harsher, more violent, and shorter lives.

We all agree that the geography and climate of Africa incentives Africans NOT to create a settled civilization and to have a lower quality of life than the rest of the world. The question we all have to ask ourselves is "Is it worth humanities limited time and resources to 'bring Africans up to speed' on how to live in a civilized world?"

Wrong. An example:
Lets take a person of 150kg which sits on a fat ass of 50x50cm. Said person creates a pressure of around 6000 pascal, which is just 6 % of standard atmopheric pressure. At this pressure water would always vaporise, no matter what temperature it is.

^Why do you hate this logic? You can claim a piece of Africa in addition to what you already have.

Africa, unlike Europe or Japan, is inherently international because it is where humanity first evolved.

Who says that though?

But before you answer, lets transfer your logic to something more relateable. Lets say someone moved to another house at some point in their life. Another person or family now lives in your old one. Years, decades or even entire generations later, I come back to that house and claim it IN ADDITION to my new house, only because I or my ancestors of me originate from there.
You know what that is? I will give you a hint: Its illegal. You know why? I will tell you: Because its unfair towards the other people. They are forced to share or even cede their property for a reason they have no influence on.

^Wrong analogy. Those who moved out sold their house. On the other hand in the case of Africa such procedure did not happen. Those who left Africa never gave up their right to return to it.

Yes, they did. By leaving the continent they agreed on that they no longer have an influence on what happens on it.

Ontop of that, actions of my ancestors dont have anything to do with me. I have no rigth to claim on property me or my ancestors volunterly left.

So if you leave your home without selling it you have given up your title?

Hmmm I try to give you some legitimate reason to claim more land. You rejected it. That's weird.

By Austrian law, if someone settles your home for 25 years and you dont stop them from doing so, they can claim your home. So technically yes. If I leave my home without selling it, I give it up.

I dont want to claim more land. I am not greedy unlike you apparently. I dont want to harm others or take their property, unless its absolutely nessecary.

back then there were no laws. Only thing that could prevent you from claiming your neigbour's "house" would be him and his willingness to beat you up.

All this logic is bullshit made up to justify stealing land, and you even said it yourself.
