a condescending and simplistic review of 'Africa'   Wednesday, May 7, 2003 (4:22 p.m.) 

The soundtrack is excellent - highly emotive and powerful. But the review on this site makes africa sound like some glorified country instead of a vastly diverse continent undergoing rapid transformation of its many faces. there is no 'kenyan' language. there are more than 42, infact. and 'native' africans exist no more than 'native' londoners or newyorkers. in short, the sountrack is amazing althought the movie does condescend to its kenyan characters, but the review here made me wonder if i was reading some colonial manuscript...

Responding to your own post makes you look like an idiot. (that's why the IP address is shown... to catch people like you)

Of course, you sort of come across as an intellectually superior dumbass with your rant about the review in the first place.

This is a site to discuss the music, not the geo-political details!
