What if Somalia conquered Europe?

A new movie review starts:
Time and time again throughout history, the white man has proven he cannot be trusted. In Martin Scorsese's twenty-sixth film "Killers of the Flower Moon," he shows us another staggering real-life example of that very warning. The legendary director's magnificent epic traverses several years in the 1920s to tell the story of the wealthy members of the Osage Nation who discovered a massive oil well on their Oklahoma land — and as a result found themselves victim to a deceitful murder plot designed to put every dime in the hands of entitled white men.
Maybe if Columbus never discovered American, the Red man could have kept all that oil wealth.


“What if India ruled Great Britain?” reads the caption of a TikTok video, now viewed over 1.7 million times.

The prompt is followed by a series of faux documentary images that narrate a history which never happened: An industrial revolution set off the militarization of India. London fell to the Indian Armada, and wealthy Indian families settled in Great Britain. ...

The TikTok account @what.if_ai, for one, already has over 27,000 followers. It posts videos with prompts like, “What if Mexico invaded the U.S.?” and “What if Somalia conquered Europe?”

Without the White man holding the Somalis back, maybe they would all have flying cars, living in domed cities.
