I swear, Americans think Africa is one giant war torn Safari, where the people are unclothed and living in huts. Their job is to fly people all around the world....so how do you make an error like that? smh.

Most Americans will never travel to Africa and do not care about it. I do not know many Of our own people that are truly concerned about what is happening on the continent. Outside of what is taught in school most of only know what is reported on the news.

Me either lol. Maybe it's b/c they used what looks like an outdoor/safari pic to represent Africa? Enlighten me, anyone?

Ok I googled it and appareny the pic was taken from a video titled "Ghana giraffe" eventhough giraffes don't live in Ghana and somehow a lot of people equated that to racism? I'm sure we all know by now that Africa is not a gigantic safari but I still fail to see what's so offensive about this pic. It's really not that serious (at least to me it's not). It's freaking Twitter for crying out loud lol.

I think overall the vast wildlife is what people think of most when they think of Africa. Just like most foreigners know of NYC as a representation of America. We know America is much more than that one city. I think people get in their feelings too much over the net.

Not knowing and not posting is one thing but posting like you're educated on it is.

ig·no·rant

ˈignərənt/

adjective

lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.


It's assuming every place in Africa is zoo like. As an airline they should be held to a higher standard. It was a stereotypical ignorant thing to do.
However, if you want to call yourself ignorant, the choice is yours. By definition what they did was ignorant.

It is. Funny thing is that the water is the same color in the morning as it is in the pic! Lmbo
