Cartoon: Africa has “civilisational” problems French President Macron says

France’s newly elected president, Emmanuel Macron, has come under fire for the racist remarks he made during a press conference at the G20 summit in Hamburg on why there was no Marshall plan for Africa. In his response Macron said that Africa has “civilisational” problems and the continent’s challenges also have to do with “countries today still are having 7 to 8 children per woman.” These racist statements have led to wide condemnation on social media. It seems, the more things change, the more they remain the same as far as racist attitudes and stereotypes about Africa are concerned.
