    The US never seen these countries becoming what they are and for so long the United States has opressed the rest of the world and made themselves the focal point in Art, Politics, Military, and now other nations are starting to show that the US is not the only human beings on this planet

    I hate the way other continents view Africa. I have lived in Zimbabwe for 9 of the 14 years of my life. The only pain I have experienced is the pain of hurting a knee, or one of my palms etc. I live in a middle class house, not in a traditional house. The only time I've ever been to one, was to experience my roots. I've hardly experienced racism, and there is less crime here than there is in the U.S. I must admit the government is much more openly corrupt, and it does take a toll on mainly the adults of the country, but it doesn't directly affect me. There are poor people, but not as many as you would think. And I may not have many activities to do when hanging out with my friends, but life is still good. I have books to read, Netflix to watch, and people to spend time with. We even have a maid, whereas in other continents we wouldn't. It's not as bad as you think, and think about it, I get to enjoy beautiful scenery every day.
