Why African countries are not more developed when black people are such intelligent and talented people?

I'm not trying to patronize, but I honestly feel that they are very talented people - sports, music, you name it, and the black people I know are very intelligent.

    Black people certainly not intelligent and talented. They have lowest IQ by far. They have Stone Age culture when left alone.

    Poverty, bad environment, poor hygiene, lack of access to food, Government support and education. Like in China, it’s survival of the fittest over there. Sadly.

    They are not intelligent and talented. Their average IQ is by far the lowest, and they are quite lazy, so they cannot develop advanced cultures without help from other races.

    Look at median IQ of African Countries. Some People like to blame European Colonialism & Imperialism but that is ridiculous as Ethiopia was never colonized yet its in the same exact state of development as the rest of Africa.

    Sub-Saharan Africa was nothing but Mudhuts made out of mud & animal feces with locals holding spears when Europeans arrived on the Continent. They still eat "bush meat" that is animals from the wild such as Bats or even Chimpanzees which has contributed to the spread of Ebola along with touching dead bodies of loved ones before burial. In Madagascar it has been a tradition to dig up their dead relatives to dance with the corpse which helped further spread the Bubonic plague. They are still wary of Western Medicine while claiming that Western Doctors introduced the Ebola Virus. In Uganda Villagers began running from the ambulances, trying to burn down hospitals, and even attacking humanitarian workers. They feared the disease—but they feared the medicine even more, as well as the people delivering it.

    Africans have had over 50+ years to develop. Japan was nuked twice yet has developed much faster than Africa in around the same exact time frame.

    Even the Chinese have scolded the Africans for destroying the infrastructure that was built in Africa by Europeans instead of using it to further develop after Independence.

    They are talented and intelligent. They are capable of anything a white person or person of any race is capable of (to mention it, yes, this answer is coming from a white person).

    The reason why they African countries aren't as developed is because of one reason: imperialism. For the last couple hundred years, countries of power imperialised African land for themselves. They've caused a division of their religion, tribes, and culture. This ultimately led to how the African countries are divided today. Many of these African countries, today, still have religious and political tensions from imperialism and the world wars. The history of imperialism is the main reason why African countries are so poor (of course there are some African countries that are an exception to this).

    It will take a long time till Africa can overcome the damage done by imperialism. The history of any nation has a major impact on how they are today; economically, politically, and religiously.
