    What say you about the projection?

    http://www.amren.com/features/2015/07/an-african-planet/

    Something that we should try to stop?

    Here's part two:

    It's impossible to project population trends with any reasonable accuracy beyond a few decades or so.

    What do you suggest is done to "stop" population growth in Africa?

    From part 2:

    "Black Africans are the first group in history who could take control of other continents, not through military or technological prowess, but through demography alone."

    It seems to me that's an argument for their racial superiority, if we're going to be "race-realists" about it a la American Renaissance.

    That'd be like claiming cockroaches are superior because they outnumber people.

    No.
    It would be like claiming cockroaches are superior if they
    were the " first group in history who could take control of continents".

    Statistics show that when nations have access to nutrition, basic health care, education and economic opportunities, birth rates drop sharply. This research is at the core of why the Gates Foundation focuses on stopping the devastation of AIDS and increasing education and health care such as vaccinations in Africa. It seems to me that caucasian, industrialized, Western cultures are the cockroaches given how these cultures are rapidly ruining the planet.

    If you're worried about this kind of thing, then I suggest you donate heavily to various family planning charities that work in Africa. They provide free birth control, and promote the education and empowerment of women to be something more than mere baby factories for their husbands.

    EDIT: The World Health Organization does a lot of work in Africa that helps to stem uncontrolled population growth. US Republicans, however, are constantly trying to cut off its funding...because abortion. Do you righties know that?

    I suspect that FishHead111 would prefer that the population growth of black Africans
    be reduced by means such as the spread of AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.

    It already is and has been for many years.
    It's being fought against and reduced by the efforts of white people.
    Why they do it is a mystery.

    I suspect America Canada Europe Australia Scandinavia will all look like Detroit and Baltimore in 50 years.
    Then the world will be wonderful, won't it?

    Nothing! They will breed themselves into famine and pestilence. Africa's isolation has led to it's being the most backward continent, and will probably continue to do so.

    Simple. They aren't racist bigots.

    It is somewhat baffling that White Progressives look at Baltimore and Detroit, both of which have been run by black folks for four or more decades, and still conclude that the obvious decay is all because of white racism. Finding a scapegoat is all too handy for folks who have screwed up their own cities, or countries.
