If you've been to Africa you will understand; there really are a lot more Zebra than horses.

'Africans' refers to the people, the black people, and not all Africans live in the continent of Africa, because of things like the slavery. The fact that Andrei referred to the people is what makes it racist. What's the next joke, something about Africans enjoying fried chicken?
And then what. That the English often enjoy soccer/football? Stop trying to alienate us. While I'm "white" (more like brown) I'm so African even my grand parents couldn't get ancestral visas. I also happen to be Irish so don't even start the slavery BS unless you do your history research first.
