Africa in Perspective
It is intersting that this particular blog was put up because me and my father was discussing how big the continent of Afica really is. In most of the maps you see now-a-days that has Afica being much smaller than many countries, including Russia and around the same size as China. Now me and my father's theory as to why this occurs with Africa and no other continet/ country is because of some race-related theory. The theory is that people want to protray Africa as a lesser of a country than it really is thus try to sublimely make black people think less of themselves. It has been noted in the history books that all black people come from Africa, so by showing their "mother country" as smaller than other places in the world, then they will not think as highly of themselves. But then again, its just my theory...
