If you have NEVER been to Africa, when someone mentions "Africa" or you hear "Africa", what is the FIRST thing that comes into your mind?

People associate different regions/continent based on media, informational material, myths, stereotypes and such. The main idea of this discussion is to find out what people who never had "first hand experience" think about the continent. Thanks for your contribution.

      Yes Africa need help.....Africa need to eradicate it poverty, disease, war and famine. It has the capabilities and potential if only Africans can know this.
      Also the global people can help Africans by supporting and focusing on their positives more than negatives....
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts....
      Love, Mary
