Native Americans and Africans are two different peoples living on two different continents. Yet they are both said to live in tribes. Why is this? Do the people in question recognize a shared tradition of living in tribes or is this just a word white folks came up with to make us seem primitive? How come when white people fight each other it's a civil war full of glory and honor but when Africans fight each other it's a tribal war--a nuisance at best and a hindrance to the civilization white people are trying to bring to the region ?
