Someone said "Are you really so stupid to think that Africa has the same technological advances as us? If they did they would probably have clean water and not live in houses made of sticks and mud. Get over yourself and stop being so ignorant."..... Below is a tiny collection of images of the Africa they refuse to show you..

























I’m sorry you’ve been made to believe that the whole of Africa is poor, I really am..

Reblogging for those of you who think Africa is only what the media and movies portrays it to be

This fucks me up because it’s scary to think that we can be showed something all our lives and not even know it’s a lie

And that my friend is the power of propaganda, indoctrination, and media

Are these pictures of South Africa or of Africa as a whole? 

@the-collecting-turnip From top to bottom:

1. Port Elizabeth (South Africa)

2. Unknown

3. Nairobi (Kenya)

4. Pretoria (South Africa)

5. Aburi Botanical Gardens (Ghana)

6. Cape Town (South Africa)

7. Pretoria (South Africa)

8. Harare (Zimbabwe)

9. Windhoek (Namibia)

10. Windhoek (Namibia)

To @kushandwizdom this is a rather unfair portrayal of Africa as a whole since half of these are literally just South Africa.  So Instead to add to this post and better dispel the myth of Africa as the vast wasteland of poverty most people think, I found a much more mixed collection of pics from various countries.

Luanda, Angola

Agadir, Morocco

Lagos, Nigeria

Cairo, Egypt

Port Louis, Mauritius

Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire

Algiers, Algeria

Tripoli, Libya

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Tunis, Tunisia

So, there, a much better case demonstrating the various major cities around Africa showing it isn’t some technologically backwards continent, but actually pretty up-and-coming in the world of commerce.

these look so beautiful omg

Lets not forget the beauty that is Chefchaouen, Morocco;

Absolutely magical place. I visited there over 20 years ago and what was remarkable was how cool the blue walls were to the touch. And the Moroccan people are so friendly and hospitable.

@spacemonkeyg78 this is a shade lighter than the blue I was talking about last summer.

Africa is a whole damn continent and people still have the audacity to think those commercials of mud huts are actually the entire country. it’s not a shocker as Africa is a majority black country and you know how that’s received by white media.

Everyone needs to see this

Saying that Africa is nothing more than a barren wasteland  with no water and food is horribly inaccurate because that only describes a small and scarcely-inhabited portion of the continent. Most of  our lives, we were shown the disasters in Africa, the genocide, and the poor areas and the media does not help with this perception. The media, unfortunately, has enough power to manipulate us and make us believe that Africa is all jungles and villages. I highly recommend you guys look up the term poverty porn.

Also, just wanted to say, Africa isn’t “under developed” because they have very small, very spread out villages. Much of the African population lives like that as a way to combat disease and plague. Dispersed villages with fewer people means that when some deadly and contagious illness hits on village, the sickness is contained and is less likely to hit the rest of the population. Unlike what happened in the Middle Ages in *caugh* Europe *caugh* when the Black Plague came on: because of the dense population and so many people packed together, the plague spread like wildfire and killed off nearly half the population in a very short amount of time.

So these “undeveloped” countries are actually way smarter that anyone gives them credit for.

never not reblogging this

Wowwww freaking gorgeous!

Watch: SHINee Gears Up For Return With Teaser For Reality Show


SHINee is launching a reality program with their upcoming comeback!

On May 23, a teaser was released for the group’s reality show “SHINee’s BACK.”

With the signature line from their track “Sherlock” playing as the background music, the clip gives a glimpse at the playfulness of the members behind-the-scenes.

Each episode of “SHINee’s BACK” will be built off the title of a different SHINee hit track. The program will showcase the process of the group preparing for their comeback, share unheard stories, and reveal new sides of the members.

“SHINee’s BACK” will be unveiled through Mnet’s digital channel M2 on Wednesdays and Fridays and then also be broadcast through television on Mnet each following Monday. The show will begin on June 6 at 9 p.m. KST.

Check out the teaser below!

This one was a little bit more challenging to do than I thought it would be – and that was mostly in all the detail (RIP) ,as well as figuring out ways to adapt a Klimt-esque look to Howl. It was really tempting to put him in his pink jacket since it lends itself to rectangular form so well. However I just had to go and make things difficult for myself… because I love his transformed version!

Based on Klimts ‘The Kiss’ (1907-1908)
