i definately dont share, this oppinion africans can also be trained to solve IQ score tests to score them as good as asians or westerners

thank god i was able to free myself from racist upbringing in school.

Training, to an extent.

Iodine deficiencies during childhood are a major cause of low IQ in Africa and the Middle East; also to an extent, genetics.

Eddie your first IQ graph is wrong.
The second one correct.



Main issue in Africa is not the IQ but the deep rooted culture of corruption.

This is a great article how africa changed.

doesnt matter in my oppinion if the society gets developed africans will become smart as indians and could also be used for engineering stuff. instead of mining like dogs in the pits.

secondly it doesnt matter how smart you are, if you dont print the money you are selling your time

there are societies where the money printers are basically idiots, and low lives and just print money and have/expects others to be smart for them

     It's not about the region itself. It is about history, political system and perception of reality. These are past mistakes that are currently being perpetuated. This is a chain that can not be broken. It has been strongly solidified by corruption, exploitation and lying. You cannot say that Africa is poor. You can say that the resources are wrong managed. Obviously, there are indicators of resource mobilization capability and as you can see it is a circle. I strongly recommend the book that is called "Why Nations Fail" . The central idea binds the concept of vicious circle and virtuous circle, along with in-depth analysis.

Not only African nations experience this. Most of asian and south american nations too. And sadly, in many cases, the rapists are no other than our own governments.

The story is always the same. Everyone feels Africa is a third world continent. But that's not it. Africa shouldn't be viewed that way but sadly it is. No doubt Africa is one of the richly blessed continent just that, these resources  are mismanaged by our leaders. It's quite unfortunate. This is why I'm happy to embrace financial revolutions like Bitcoin, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies. Let's see what the future holds.

Anyway, Great to see a post about Africa right here on Bitcointalk  Smiley

True. But we are overpowered and being used simply because we allow them to. It is the masses that are putting people into their positions and seeing them rape the nation over and over again and yet we put the same kind of people again and again. People are afraid to fight for their own rights and they are fine getting drops from barrels of goodness which are supposed to be theirs.

This is the sad reality that continent like africa was being tagged as one of the poorest country in the world when the truth is this country is somewhat the one of richest in everything world needs,if people only knows how to value each resources for sure this cant be this same situation

Some countries in asia also has this tags but the truth is they are being raped by big countries who take over their places long time ago until now

Every African country has been colonised by at least one European country in the past ,and even after the indipendance the control still exists in form of treaties ,cultural and economic agreements , language and so on , for example Morocco still pays an anual feel to France ,lets them use coast for extensive fishing that kills local fishermen , forces the country to have french as a language of any form scientific studies , they even pushed us to add an exta hour to our local time (was GMT ,now uts GMT+1) for some economical reason. And here i am struggling to write this in English because i was forced to learn in french.

There's many reasons why Africa is in the state that it is and many of them have been mentioned in the thread. Take slavery for instance. Slavery did not start because white people were hunting for black men, putting them in chains and transporting to the US, the UK, and other countries. Most slaves were simply bought. THey were treated like property in their local villages and sold by the elders for alcohol, knives, and other things the white people were bringing.
The next question could be: why aren't they developing? If you go to Uganda or Nigeria you'll see that the people there aren't interested in education or building anything. They live a happy life drinking homemade alcohol, taking drugs and feasting together. While drunk they conceive children that later run around chasing chickens and goats all day and watching their parents get wasted. I can bet you that these countries aren't going to get anywhere in the next 50 years.

I also disagree with this notion that African are poor. I think Africa is rich though they cannot really enjoy that riches because of the greediness of their leaders that do sold they interest. If the leaders will have change of mind Africa will be the best place to be.

This is why Africa is poor.  



so how did they actually reach those places in Africa which most don't even have internet connection? how was the IQ exam conducted again? and assuming this image is accurate as well as your statement which concludes  "Poverty is directly related to IQ", then why do high IQ countries lunch wars for Oil and natural resources? why send a dozen of people with high IQ to kill dozen of people with low IQ for Oil ?

not sure which IQ frequency i have to tune in to understand the logic   Grin

I think someone who has an average IQ score would figure this shit out by themselves  Roll Eyes



now let me break it down  to you real simple.

Most African countries are still colonized, after WW2 the nature of colonization has changed, you do not need to have troops on ground, just control the government, create some opposition armed troops, create parallel armies and protect the government , grab them by the balls and take full control of resources, and should you lose control, launch a war against them in the name of war against terror/protection of civilians,mass destruction weapons and the list goes on.

There are many examples out there, the latest was Libya.

it was on a roll, Gadaffi decided to take full control and not supply Italy and some other countries with cheap/free gas and oil , he was also planning on building major harbors that would take a huge cut from the EU sea trade, as well as one of the largest airports in the region, these and many other reasons put EU in some competition danger, they tried to negotiate with him, he refused, they made up all sort of lies and B.S about him, "NATO flew 26,500 sorties" just to "protect innocent people who gaddafi suddenly after 42 years decided to kill  Roll Eyes " and you all know the rest of the story " i suppose ".

and they will do the same shit to every government that tries to take full control of it's country's resources, because they need those resources, IQ alone means NOTHING.

Libya has been going through a mess for the past 8 years, ISIS were all over the place, not a single gas/oil field was touched  Roll Eyes  almost everything has stopped at one point (hospitals, markets, airports ,etc,,) but not a single gas / oil pipe that delivers to EU or "sells" to U.S was touched.

use some simple logic, and you should be able to understand how things actually work, and trust me, they are usually way different from what your local news tell you.

I would not go to as far as the OP tho, yes we as people take a large chunk of responsibility , we can't deny it, but sure as hell it has nothing to do with us having  low IQ, it's more like the "High IQ countries" still occupy our lands.

I don't call Africa poor because Africa is more like of my country, Philippines. And in my country, we were also got raped by our leaders. My country is being surrounded with many forms of water, yet we still got water shortage on all places. My country has the finest land of all and you can plant rice on rice fields and you can get abundant harvest yet, we still need to import a lot of rice form different countries. My country has a lot of resources, yet we are not the miners of our own lands, it is always the foreigners. My country consists of 7000+ lands, yet we are not the businessmen of our own to produce works for my countrymen. Well, we still more like of your country. We're the same.

When the countries don't have skillful leaders and the current rulers won't care about their country's future and citizen are getting bribed in millions from those foregins countries to steal all those wealth from them.So choosing the right leader is the only to make countries better.

I think so as well. Though i think it's leaders are doing a very good job in suppressing the people and using africa's rich resources to keep themselves in power. The people there should be educated as well. It's been too long that africa is seen as the overly deprived country with dying children in the streets. They have the resources but their leaders doesn't seem to be interested in making this country better.

I laugh at my continent when foreigners call us poor. You make a statement online about the continent or any country in it and the first thing that comes to people mind is "That poor country or poor continent". Who is to be blamed for all these, it isn't just the leaders anymore but the people are to be held responsible because they voted those leaders into power.

The image below shows you how wealthy Africa is and if she wasn't being raped she would had been the richest continent on earth.

        

What my continent have failed to realized is that power won't be given to you unless you fight for it. If the world was a fair one most African countries would had been among world leading country but instead we get treated like slaves and our wealth is been enjoy by other continents. What a shame Angry

From the marvel movie "Blackpanther" i believe the solution to the continent (Africa) problem is to act as the past Kings of wakanda did with their natural resource: Vibranium, they should learn to manage their resources themselves and later they can sell finish products to the outside world.

Africa is not poor.  Africans are.

To develop and manufacture new products you need scientists, engineers, IT guys, business managers.

What the "Blackpanther" movie portrayed was pure utopia.

What Africans can hope for is to go the Chinese route (attract foreign investment), but one crucial ingredient is missing: education.  Chinese communist education system is among the top education systems in the world.  Africans don't have a world-class education system, that is why they will never be able to compete on the world stage unless they tackle that issue first.

Lack of knowledge from the residents caused the foreign countries to take all the resource from their country and making them as poor even when they have lot of wealthy resources on their land.

Op has given a detailed description about Africa and its wealth which were taken by the foreign countries. Africa has got all wealth, but the lack of power in their hands and the caste issue has made them to be slaves. This has continued for a long, and when the people realized about the scenario everything has gone out of hands.
