This paper discusses the European colonization of Africa. The paper contends that many of the prevailing problems in the former colonies are results of the practices put into action by the colonial powers, thus confusing cultural, linguistic, and social balances. The paper explains that France, Portugal, and Britain employed methods intended to maximize their own profits, and generally, this came at the expense of the natives. Accordingly, the lessons they brought to the continent were detrimental to many cultures' senses of identity and hindered their independent entrance into the modern global economy.
