"You are from Africa? Wow! How do you live with giraffes and lions" - American man asks Zimbabwean woman

Yeah, you eadd right! Yesterday, March 15, a Zimbabwean human rights lawyer & General Secretary, World YWCA, Nyaradzayi Gumbonzvanda was at a hotel reception in the U.S when a man asked her the ignorant questions. For over twenty years, Mrs Gumbonzvanda (pictured with Hollywood actress, Ashley Judd) has been working on issues of women and children's human rights with a special focus on crisis countries. After the cut is what she shared on her Facebook page...



"Okay, I was taken aback and am kind of angry and sad at ignorance, but more so at the perception of Africa. I was collecting my keys at the hotel reception and this guys said, aaah, you are from Africa, from Zimbabwe right? I said yes. He was holding my passport. Then he went on to say with true conviction "wow, how do you live with giraffes and the lions? Are you not afraid to just kind of wake up and see a lion staring at you?" I looked at him, and said no am not afraid. we are all part of nature. I am still nursing some sad feeling about how many people in this United States of America do not really know about Africa and have warped ideas. Or its maybe only this single guy. Ummm"

She always come to charge her phone , whenever I put on my generator , I will allow her come in to plug it by herself so that she can make sure it’s charging , after plunging she will refuse to go and sit down to watch tv, me as a guy , I can’t chase her out . This continued until I started getting very uncomfortable with it , sometimes she will pretend to dose off on my bed or on the center rug and throw her legs wide open , I will wake her up to go home . Yesterday night , she came again but this time with about 4phones to charge,
I told her that I don’t have enough fuel in my generator so it might soon go off , she said ok , let her charge until it goes off . This gal sat down and opened her legs so wide with nothing inside , immediately I sighted those fat clit, and very neat hair, my dick just jumped up , I tried to control myself , but..

Okaro said...

We shouldn't blame the poor guy. I worked with an American firm and my MANAGER once told me that the only thing they teach them about Africa in their country is only that "Africa is the Dark Continent" and is riddled with disease and all other bad stuff.

He said that it's rather unfortunate that only those who are privileged to travel out and visit Africa that ever get to know the truth and appreciate Africa as a great continent.

If it's an African saying that to a westerner, we say it's illiteracy. Who is the illiterate in this case?

Jude Akinwole said...

I'm double sure he said it on purpose to slight her but wanted to sound ignorant too so he'll not be found culpable of racism! Unfortunately this mentality still exists among some Americans, & not them alone, a lot of Whites too! Racism is the only reason they have the audacity to do/say it & the issue should be taken more seriously!

Alaspecial said...

At this modern day and age, someone is asking such a dumb question. Is he saying he can't browse the internet? Google has made life easier for us, he should just ask google some few questions abt Africa and everything comes out.
Ignorance is a disease

Paris5thave said...

These Americans though. Wish I could take Africa to them to see but they would have to be the ones to come see themselves.
We, on the other hand, stalk their destiny. It is well.

Whites r dumb I've lived with them. D most intelligent r Asians especially Chinese/Koreans followed by Africans. Whites r olodos wn they r solving problems in class their face will be shining blood red. D only diff is their desire to develop invent n progress without being corrupt. But odr races r so corrupt n backward in they way they reason, let's not forget excessively spiritual too always blaming everything to chance

The woman's response is the reason they still ask such questions. She didnt say anything to deny that we walk freely amongst wild animals. Instead she said " we are all part of nature" which will only further butress the idea in his head.

No a lot of them honestly are that ignorant. And she kind of accepted that Africans live amongst aminals by saying we embrace nature. I watched one african actress description of Kenyan were she was from. And all she could say was giraffes on the street and all.. The whites have a large number of ignorant people. However instead of our leaders going to drop of their stolen wealth there they should sponsor global programs to showcase Africa and its beauty.

@ onyx, you can go back to the drawing board, first civilization came from Africa, trust me and do more research. Yeah, we speak their language only because it's the world's lingua franca but even the numbers and alphabets all came from Africa, food for thought.
