Drop The White Man's Language And Be Free

Drop The White Man's Language And Be Free

There are over 2100 and by some counts over 3000 languages spoken natively in Africa in several major language families:

Afroasiatic (Hamito-Semitic) spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, and parts of the Sahel Nilo-Saharan is centered on Sudan and Chad (disputed validity) Niger–Congo (Bantu) covers West, Central, and Southeast Africa Khoe is concentrated in the deserts of Namibia and Botswana Austronesian on Madagascar.

About a hundred African languages are widely used for inter-ethnic communication. Somali, Berber, Amharic, Oromo, Swahili, Edo, Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba are spoken by tens of millions of people. If clusters of up to a hundred similar languages are counted together, twelve are spoken by 75 percent, and fifteen by 85 percent, of Africans as a first or additional language

I compiled this list of major african languages, each has a minimum of 5 million speakers We have a opportunity every day to learn a African language, any African language, we can drop this crakkka language in one year and be done with it if we choose Africa over everything.
