    The Race Factor in European Colonization of Africa
    Racism and colonialism were symmetrically related in Africa under white rule. Both drew a line between the "superior" white man and the "inferior" black man

    During the "Scramble for Africa" European powers seized land and resources from indigenous Africans as though the people didn't exist.

    Gender, Labour and Polygamy in Shona Society
    If a picture speaks a thousand words, none does so more eloquently than the cover photo of An Ill-Fated People on gender imbalances in pre-colonial Zimbabwe.

    Darwinism and Colonialism in Africa
    While Charles Darwin made a significant breakthrough in science, some of his followers - Social Darwinists, used his theory to justify conflicts and exploitation of man.

    Europeans Dominate Africa
    By 1914, almost the whole of Africa was colonized by Europeans. For the Africans, there were benefits in this situation but there were also serious disadvantages.

    If you really wanna thank me, you'd read them.
    The books, that is....

    Then compare what you've gathered to...say,

    http://pascf.org.uk/resources/Was+slavery+really+our+own+fault.pdf
    ....Acquiring the sources that the author has used to support his claims

    Then render an informed conclusion. :)

    @ Raptor.

    I've been reading the PDF you provided I read were the Zulu nation fought against the encroachment of whites on African soil. This was called the Battle of Blood River and it was a battle for land. The insinuation that blacks just let whites waltz in and take what ever they wanted is ridiculous. Whites in South Africa give service of thanksgiving once a year that is held by the descendants of the victors which numbered about 470 Brits. This battle left 3000 of us dead as opposed to 3 of them wounded.



    Peace!
