We could, and we technically have the right to...

But it's not good with the way the world's all connected. Meaning we have to pull the weight of everyone that's not actively hostile towards others. Also the whole "racist" social justice shit our culture is plagued with pretty much means we're stuck with it.

I say let them crumble, and let some more reasonable people rise up to lead. Maybe people with half a brain for leading a country, and non-racists would be a huge plus.

Africa has potential in a lot of it's nations, they just don't utilize it.

I've always thought that there was a lot of wasted potential in Africa. I'm not sure if what they lack is the resources, or education, or both. Wars perpetuated by the power-hungry also don't help either

If you ask me, and I'm not an expert, it's mostly attributed to a lack of education and fundamental understanding of meta-concepts vital to leading a prosperous (long term) nation. So in laymen terms, they aren't very bright.

The incredible proclivity for violence is also not helpful in the continent, which is further amplified by the general population being poor (drives people to violence to survive).

It sucks because they actually have some really good resources that they could capitalize on, and there are sustainable places without a doubt to build up industry and population. Sadly a lot of the population isn't up to what we would call civilized living, so it's difficult in the sense that they have to raise living standards to fully capitalize on what they have. But instead they ask for aid, and it goes into just maintaining their livelihoods as they are (without technically working for them)... so there is no struggle to drive them forward. Yes dying of starvation and the like is quite the struggle, but humanitarianism is a crutch that some rely on. It also makes people think they can live in really stupid places, where they would instead be better suited living in more sustainable and accessible environments.

You can't really point to any one thing. Widespread ignorance is definitely a problem and education could fix that. But they're starving, so feeding the people is more important since it doesn't matter if they're educated if they died of starvation. And the fact that many of them aren't able to feed their families fucks up their ability to develop any major infrastructure to develop the country since, as mentioned before, it's more important that they're not starving. But there's also a shit ton of conflict, and it's not uncommon for warlords and the like to take food away from the people who need it to not starve. And said conflicts are often caused by power-hungry assholes or woefully inept governments, and the violent groups are able to get so many people fighting for them partially because they can feed them (since the groups steal food) and partially because the people are ignorant and uneducated so they don't know any better. It's a tangled knot of fucked up circumstances that'll take a metric fuckton of time and effort to ever fix.

The main thing holding back Africa is that it's filled with black people.

The problem with that is there are lots of people who flat out don't use channels.
