Can white people go to Africa, even though they aren’t African?

Hello, I am wondering if white people going to Africa is cultural appropriation and is allowed? Is Africa America just Africa that white people can actually go to? I just want to respect other cultures and countries. I know that Africa (not Africa America) is a country that I may want to go to one day, so I need to know if it is legal and appropriate to be there.

    Yes, of course white people can go to Africa as tourists, and they do, in large numbers. The locals welcome them, especially if they spend lots of money. Safaris in national parks to see all the wildlife are popular.  Get a good camera!  Don't forget that 'Africa' is a diverse continent, with 53 separate countries, and very different climates in various parts.

    Be respectful of the locals when you go there.

    Of course, we are all in a sense African because the whole human race originated in eastern Africa all those years ago, with dark skins.

    Bon voyage!

    Are you Joe Biden?  Africa is not a country.  Africa is a continent.

    I suppose your knowledge of Africa (the huge vast continent) is limited.. You know there are White africans.... just google South Africa... Also many North Africans, Egyptians, Moroccans, Libyans, Algerians. are decendants of Europeans and are white skinned, blonde haired, blue eyed Africans..... so to answer your question.. the whites are already there in  AFrica

    Probably but don’t expect to be given a house, benefits , translators or people campaigning for white lives matter.

    yes they can.  So can black people

  • Africa is a continent. Not a country.  There are quite literally dozens of countries in Africa.

    Legal? Yes.

    Appropriate? Depends if they're going there with a white saviour complex or not.

    Seriously? As a visitor/tourist? White people visit all the time, how would that be illegal or cultural appropriation? No different from visiting any country.
