motherfuckers will say how things are “in Africa” like it’s one big place that’s homogenous throughout
but god forbid you say “Britain” when you mean “England”
But when you’re referring to Britain you can also be referring to Scotland and Wales… I’ve met some English people that got offended when I called them “British” and just wanted to be called “English”. Others didn’t care. I guess it’s all relative.
Yeah, and when you refer to “Africa,” you could be referring to Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia, or Zimbabwe, and those are just the 54 recognized sovereign states listed on wikipedia
Not to mention the fact that there are around 62,641,000 (62 million) people in the handful of countries in the UK, while there are around 1,032,532,974 (just over a billion) in the dozens of countries on the continent of Africa
Do you see why it’s a problem that people get who don’t give two shits about the “Africa” thing but still get super worked up about the “Britain” thing?
