    • I am yet to see a European country that welcomes black Africans and has its door open to black african. Even within africa itself go to Arab nations like morroco etc,black dark Africans are mistreated and considered less than those so called light Africans.

Should I be impressed that they use black Africans to win football tournaments at the expense of the african countries those players come from? You are so ignorant and small brained

    • Mandela was of Khoisan and negroid ancestry. He was from generations of African based ancestors either side. As for skin colour those of us who did Geography do know that the further away you are from the equator the less melanin you need, therefore the lighter your skin. Its not rocket science
