If it was not for European colonialism, most sub-Saharan Africans would be running around practicing magic and eating each other.

If it weren't for their African ancestors there wouldn't be any Eupopeans.
As an atheist I think that the people I see setting off to church on a Sunday (or any other day) are precticing magic with every bit as much success as their ancient or African counterparts.
Canibalism is a rare event. The last cases I heard of were white guys.

Did you have a point, or was it just a bit of racist slur?

Truly amazing ignorance and arrogance.

Virgo Supercluster shares an IP address and a hostname with MDriver1981, and maybe some preconceptions too.

Sockpuppeting perhaps?

MDriver1981/Virgo Supercluster - sockpuppeting isn't acceptable here, neither is racism.

Also, do you think the same applies to the rest of the world?  Or do you just have a particular bias against sub-saharan Africa?  How about South East Asia - where arguably the most developed country (Thailand) is the only one that has never been subject to colonianism?
