What are some of the benefits and pitfalls of the ethnic, language, and religious diversity in Africa?
(its a sort answer question pls help)

  • Social Studies -

    Benefits may be the ability to learn from different ethnic groups, such as the way they survive or cook dishes, or get along with each other. Pitfalls may be disagreement with one another, or murder as has happened many times. Apply all this to AFrica.

  • Social Studies -

    There seems to be something in human nature that prompts us to fear and distrust people who are different than ourselves. The same applies in every continent, every nation, etc. That may, and often does, include people whose customs, language, skin color, foods, religions, differ. Sometimes it results in civil wars, other times in wars between nations. Sometimes it results in conflict within "tribes" or groups, as in the Catholic/Protestant conflicts that wracked Europe, and the Shia/Sunni/Sufi conflicts riling Islam for the last 600 years. Apply that to what we've seen in Africa in the last century (or forever).
