AFRICA.

AFRICA.

I thought I had heard all the ignorance one person could possibly hear, until I wore this necklace my mom just brought me from home (South Africa). It’s Africa, clearly.

You know Africa, the massive continent in the middle of the map of the world? You know, the six other continents on Earth besides North America?

“Cool necklace. What is it?”

“Is that a dolphin?”

“It must be South Africa!”

No, I am not kidding.

So I thought it would be interesting to ask people throughout the day, ‘What is this?’ while showing my necklace. I probably asked about thirty┬ápeople and ONE person was like Africa? Everyone else was completely clueless. Not even like ‘hmm, it looks familiar, maybe I’ve seen it around WHILST LOOKING AT A MAP OF THE WORLD.’

This is Africa people. Please stop being so ignorant. Learn about the world, outside of America.

No hate on Americans. I’m just trying to make people aware of their ignorance, so they do go educate themselves about the world we all live in. And if you didn’t know what Africa looked like, now you do ­čÖé
