    We are not all stupid. It's a continent.

    It won't surprise me at all that Americans think that Africa is a country, Canada is right next to them an they know nothing about it..

    I don't think the vast majority do. Unfortunately, our school systems have gone down hill because no one wants to pay the taxes it takes to keep them well-funded and up to date. Therefore, more and more Americans are ignorant of geography, culture, and even their own history and language - it's a true disgrace!!

    No.

    It is a continent with many countries.

    Geography is not taught in the remedial school systems. So hence forth therefore you will find enough people giving you ridiculous answers to geographical questions.

    Source(s): That moron who asked me if African people live on trees, that dim wit who asked me why Africans walk around naked, and that missing-link who asked me if Africans have pet lions in their back yard.

    I don't know anyone who thinks Africa is a country. The people I know are aware that it's a city! (JUST KIDDING--They know it's a continent.)

    I doubt that many people in the US ever think of Africa, let alone try to classify it.
