We only know what we set forth to know, and many of us as our nature are quick to listen to the opinions of someone else and make a judgment off of just that other than being educated about the culture and why they are going through such difficult circumstances. So, to conclude the question it makes it more than just easier and acceptable to attribute praise and admiration to other cultures for their creativeness, inventiveness, intuitiveness, intellect, and/or ability to progress under "difficult" circumstances because we as people elaborate on the opinions and views other than looking deeper into knowing, and that’s the whole purpose of me taking this class to get the real admiration of Africa, and begin to accept the African culture spiritual
