The truth about African tribes (unsourced-information age)

Fantasy 1 (original)

“In this African Tribe, when someone does something wrong, they take the person to the center of the village, where the tribe surrounds him and, for 2 days, says all the good he has done. They believe each person is good but sometimes people make mistakes, which are really a cry for help. So they unite to reconnect him with his good nature (So Beautiful).”

Fantasy 2 (just as unverifiable)

“In this African Tribe, when someone is Christian, the people who practice. the native religion, force the Christian to recite the US pledge of allegiance while the entire tribe gang-rapes the Christianity out of him. Afterwards, they all smoke weed, listen to hip-hop and discuss how wonderful it is that Barack Obomba is the first mulatto US president (So beautiful).”

Reality

“In this African Tribe, we don’t know what goes on or why. Still, to simply add an endearing, unverifiable caption is the sign of our times: compliments are true, insults are false, and there’s no time to fact-check anything–even in the age of the internet. Instead, we wander on, bouncing between elation and depression–a culture of idiots, too ‘busy’ to think.”
