Prince William in deep shit over telling Africans to stop fucking so much

Prince William blasted for ‘racist, out of touch’ comments on the African population

Prince William has come under fire for the comments he made regarding the population surge in Africa and its impact on the native wildlife of the land.

Royal commentator Omid Scobie made this claim on Twitter.

“In other news, Prince William has been called an 'imperialist colonizer' after blaming African population growth for wildlife loss."

Prince William has been accused of racism for comments linking the human population of Africa to pressure on wildlife.

The Duke of Cambridge gave a speech to the Tusk Conservation Awards calling for the natural world to be protected from the impact of human beings, but his comments sparked a backlash on Twitter after being reported in the U.K. press.

William, a Tusk patron, handed out prizes to leading conservationists from African nations at the ceremony on Monday. He told the audience in London: "The increasing pressure on Africa's wildlife and wild spaces as a result of human population presents a huge challenge for conservationists, as it does the world over.

I once got invited by a colleague to a christening of twin babies from Congolese refugee parents in France. I got pressured into going, christenings and churches not being my thing. The Congolese preacher christened the babies - a girl and a boy - announcing that the boy "would go to university and become very rich" and the girl "would have 20 children and show how fertile she is and how virile her husband is". For fuck's sake.

Africa is home to the world's greatest animals species. Just as other continents have to guard and preserve their animals and natural resources, there is nothing wrong with collectively reminding residents and tourists alike that animals have a right their habitat so that they can live and thrive and continue as a species.

That's what Wills meant even if he didn't say or it wasn't interpreted as artfully as intended. We know he was coming from a point of view of animal preservation, and he didn't mean to insult. Africans should know this, just as previously stated, we all have a responsibility to preserve animal life and resources on our respective continents. Wills did nothing wrong. Extinction is forever.

Overpopulation is destroying the planet. R44 evidently doesn't have access to Wikipedia..

"The one-child policy (Chinese: 一孩政策) was a population planning initiative in China implemented between 1980 and 2015 to curb the country's growth by restricting many families to a single child. It had wide-ranging social, cultural, and economic effects. Its efficacy in reducing birth rates and defensibility from a human rights perspective have been subjects of controversy.

China's family planning policies began to be shaped by fears of overpopulation in the 1970s, and officials raised the age of marriage and called for fewer and more broadly spaced births. A one-child limit was imposed in 1980 by a group of politicians including Deng Xiaoping, Chen Yun, and Li Xiannian. The policy was modified beginning in the mid-1980s to allow rural parents a second child if the first was a daughter. It also allowed exceptions for some other groups, including ethnic minorities. In 2015, the government replaced the policy with a two-child limit, and in 2021, the limit was removed."

R56, as I clearly stated, the overpopulation problem affects the whole world but it is not being CREATED by the whole world as the educated, first world countries where women aren't treated like brood mares have declining populations. Now, here comes the logic bomb...that means the countries with exponential fucking population growth need to be accountable for the destruction they are bringing to the whole world. Those countries and continents are Africa, India, China, Indonesia, and South America and they should be called out for it. Hell, they should be sanctioned and punished for it.

R69 African countries make up the top 25 countries with the highest birth rate. Since you are obviously to lazy to look up the complete list and foolishly think R66’s list is complete, Pakistan is at number 54. They’ve actually promoted birth control and family planning and have seen their birth rate fall significantly in the past forty years, though they have a long way to go before they catch up to neighbors India and Bangladesh. Iran also has had an aggressive birth control campaign with successful results. Samoa and Vanuatu have higher rates than Pakistan, as do Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine, Papua New Guinea, and Tonga. Israel is only a few steps ahead of Pakistan with a slightly lower birth rate. And what I find promising is that several Muslim countries have below replacement birth rates, including Kuwait, Lebanon, Turkey, Bangladesh, Maldives, Brunei, Qatar and UAE. Just the facts, ma’am.

And yes, the more developed African countries will have bigger carbon footprints (still not as big at the UK, US etc., though). I'm not posting because I think Prince William is a racist. I don't. Nor do I think Africans are magically more morally pure and that this is the reason for their smaller carbon footprints. They're smaller because Africa is generally less developed. 1 average African child has a much smaller carbon footprint than 1 average British child.

Absolutely! Because the countries with the highest fertility rates are ALL IN AFRICA.

"Carbon emissions" and "climate change" are a deflection from the reality that the only thing that will save this planet is POPULATION CONTROL. A "carbon footprint" is not the cause of desertification and deforestation. Or increasingly scarce arable land. Or overcropping. Or the extinction of animal species due to humanity encrouching on habitats and consuming "bush meat" because there is nothing else available. Or water quality/scarcity, due to overdemand and human pollution. Or migration/invasion, due to scarce to non-existent self-sustaining resources. Or on-going strife and skirmishes, because there is not enough land/water/jobs and far too many people.

As international agencies who should know better (and some of the post on this board) have illustrated, shrieking 'racism' is vastly preferred to demanding that Africans contribute to saving this planet from destruction. Unfortunately, treating Africans like defective children who must be coddled and protected will only hasten the planet's demise.

Nazi-costuming Harry who called two fellow soldiers of color in his regiment Paki and Raghead on video long before he left the family's bosom was image rehabbed as decidedly not racist by his now rejected family's PR. Instead of gratitude for not being viewed by the nation as a grubby bigot, he needed to take a dump on those who shielded the public from his intrinsic ugliness.

Prince William has said this same stuff before. From a 2017 speech specifically for an African wildlife charity:

[quote]“In my lifetime we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half.

Overpopulation is a direct cause of poorer countries staying poor. It creates a dependent population (the elderly and the very young) which has to be supported by the much smaller working population. It's similar to a people having a bunch of children before they can support them. Though obviously more complicated

As a lobbyist in this field in the 1980s the statistics were very clear: WHO reported there were 200 million women in the developing world who did not want their last child and did not want another child and had no access to birth control. Women very much wanted to have control over their reproductive health and needed assistance getting that help.

Wealthy countries can handle a dependent population in ways that poor countries cannot. Some African nations do need to be singled out - they are often the ones that make it harder for women to use birth control and/or have abortions. When I was lobbying on this issue I wanted to revolutionize women in the Third World to refuse to have sex with their men until they respected women's reproductive rights. My boss called me a communist. LOL!

William says Africans should have fewer children, but the UK has cut funding given to Africa for family planning:

[quote]“The Prince rightly draws attention to human population growth as a key driver of wildlife loss,” Robin Maynard, director of the charity Population Matters, told Euronews.com. “There is also a wider context, with high consumption in rich, developed countries like the UK also driving habitat destruction, climate change and pollution — all drivers of extinctions. Addressing our consumption here is essential, too.”

[quote]Maynard agreed that couples in developed countries can choose smaller families to help reduce over-consumption of natural resources, but he said that’s not a choice available to “hundreds of millions of women” elsewhere around the world.

[quote]That’s particularly true in sub-Sahara Africa, he said, while noting that the U.K. government had cut funding for international aid for family planning.

Seeing how William talks his reign is going to dire as well. I'm not even judging the merit of their opinions but it's in their own self interest to keep quiet but they are too egotistical be quiet. I also want to note that Prince William did badly in school then went to St Andrews where he couldn't even finish his art history degree and had to switch to geography.

10 FACTS ABOUT OVERPOPULATION IN AFRICA

By 2050 Africa’s population is predicted to double. With so many countries having such a high birth rate, the populations of African countries are rising very quickly. Africa’s current population of more than 1.1 billion is expected to exceed 2 billion in the next 30 years. The population is growing at a rate faster than any other continent.

By 2100, five of the top 10 most populous countries will be in Africa. Currently, Nigeria is the only country in Africa with a population in the top 10. Its population is expected to grow by another 527 million people by that time. With African countries growing at such fast rates, it is estimated that by 2100 the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Egypt will join Nigeria in the top 10.

Africa holds 27 out of 30 of the countries with the highest birth rates. An overwhelming majority of the countries with the highest birth rates reside in Africa. Niger, Angola and Mali all have an average of around six births per woman. These rates are much higher than in developed nations. To compare, the U.S. has a birth rate of 1.88. Other developing countries such as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have birth rates around 2.1.

Seventy percent of Africans are under 30 years old. The African population is the youngest in the world. As this younger population reaches working age, the demand for jobs will increase. Jobs will need to be developed to satisfy this job market.

Africa is urbanizing quickly. Around 80 percent of Africa’s massive population growth will occur in cities. This is in addition to the massive rush to urbanization that has already occurred in Africa. While Africa may not be lacking land, its population is crowded into cities. In 2010, 90 percent of the continent’s population was living on only 21 percent of the land.

[quote] There'd be plenty of money for family planning if the despots ruling African countries would stop treating their national treasuries like personal bank accounts.

Precisely. Which is why when I lobbied on this issue we fought for Cingress and the administration to give multi-lateral aid (to NGOs that had programs in countries) rather than bi-lateral aid (funding directly from one country to another country).

Countries like the US prefer bi-lateral aid because they openly get the credit and can use it to manipulate countries' politics and other policies in business, etc. Sometimes that's good. For instance, we'll give you this money but you have to start education your girls and opening schools and professions to them. Other times it's debatable, e.g., we'll give you this money to help build your infrastructure but you need to redirect road projects from roads to help farmers get their product to the cities to sell and instead you need to build roads to this new plant being built by General Motors. it's complicated but actually this area of international politics is fascinating. It can be both positive and negative at the same time.

BUT multi-lateral aid prevents a lot of the corruption and bi-lateral aid fuels it. When NGO workers suffer harassment or physical danger I always have to ask why and who is this really coming from.

People can fuck all they want but the countries need to get their women the reproductive health care they need and modernize their cultures so women are free to use birth control (some birth control involves factors such as privacy, fresh water, no taboo about touching yourself, et al) and their men need to be encouraged to respect the choices of women. Culture can be a real hurdle. Cultural hurdles are why Depo-Provera became popular - one shot that lasts for months was like a godsend. Women were willing to walk days to visit health care camps to receive their injection.

so william needs to talk to his grandma, his dad and their rich friends who own almost 30% of all the property in England.

R188 sweetie: home ownership statistics: in the US it is 65% (despite the fact home ownership for African-Americans is only 40%), in the UK it is also 65%, in France it is 57%, in Germany it is 51%.

You need to talk to the US government not the Brits about redlining, etc.

R189 Not R188 But, there are people in the UK who "own" their homes but not the land underneath it. So it isn't exactly the same. In the US, that appears to mainly only occur with large buildings in major cities.

R190 70% of leaseholds in the UK are flats. Apartment owners in the US don't own the land the building is on either. Same thing in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, etc.

R195, most people who live in American apartments only rent them. And we're not talking about America. We were talking about England, until some idiot felt the need to turn it all around to America

So I'll say it once again for the slow crowd, More people would love to buy homes in England, but the shortage of open land available to buy prevents that. Home ownership would be MUCH HIGHER if there was available land to buy. But a large majority of it is owned by the aristocracy & the royals. To prevent hurting people's feelings, I won't go into the myriad reasons home ownership isn't higher in America

[quote] Apartment owners in the US don't own the land the building is on either.

Of course, they do. My condo association owns the property our building sits on and the exterior areas. Individual unit owners have an ownership interest in the common areas and the exterior land. And we pay for its maintenance and taxes via our condo fees.

In the UK people have leaseholds that are very long term and some are as good as freeholds.

[quote]There are around 4.6 million leasehold homes in England, according to estimates from the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). Long leaseholders buy the right to live in their homes for the term of the lease. Around 68% of these are flats, while 32% are houses.

[quote] Newly-created leases can be anything from 99 or 125 years to 999 years. A 999 year lease is effectively as good as freehold, and there can even be some advantages to owning some properties this way, rather than under freehold

So, I guess the real drawback is being able to pass down property to heirs if for some reason the leasehold can't be extended.

r114 Kenya, almost twice the landmass of Britain, still has fewer people than the 68 million on the British Isles. Weird you mention Kenya because it's one of the few countries on the continent that aggressively protects its wildlife and working to increase protected areas. The average British person has more than 25 times the carbon footprint of the average Kenyan. Nuke England to save the earth. The Kenyans can have as many kids as they like.

R202 obviously doesn't understand the tribal structure of African societies or how tribalism ensures that Africans will continue to fuck themselves into extinction.

In tribal societies, where the Western concept of "social welfare" is non-existent, children are viewed as commodities to provide financial and social support and protection to parents/family/clan. The more children you have, the better you are able to live, as children are sent out to work for the benefit of their parents. The older male children are burdened not only with their supporting younger siblings, but also their extended families. This is the principle reason invaders to Europe are largely young, adult males.

For the ruling despots, encouraging non-stop fucking ensures that people will be far too busy worrying about where there next meal is coming from to challenge his power/control and usurp the wealth (the national treasury) he derives from it.

They're just taking it as an opportunity to make themselves look better than others. If you were a fly on the wall in many highly liberal people's homes you'd find out rather fast just what hypocrites they are. They talk the talk, but can't walk the walk. Their liberalness is all for show and more often than not only used in public to get themselves ahead in some ways.

It most certainly is. An apartment is one unit of a multi unit building no matter if it's purchased or rented. That makes a condo or a co-op an apartment.

R213 - William didn't asked to be carried like that - it was the Africans themselves who wanted it.

People in primitive societies have mores Westerners don't understand. My father was a surgeon and served in the South Pacific in WWII. When his ship arrived in the Solomon Islands, the King of the Solomon Islands insisted no carrying my father on his back to honor 'the medicine man'.

R213 That picture was in the South Pacific not Africa. Surely even you could see that by the people who are carrying him. And as R214 states, it’s a tradition to carry honoured guests.

Do you really think that William arrived there (I think it’s the Solomon Islands) and demanded to be carried?

If so you’re an idiot. If not, you’re just another troll.
