Waaaa! Cry me a river. Social equality my ass. If they want social equality they should have made their civilizations into something other than a cesspool. 90% of Africa and 100% of South America were nothing until Europeans came along.

Social equality I reckon is beyond any governments ability. However it does make a statement, that we don't know where anything really is, and that changes our perception of our planet!
What maps do N.A.S.A. use? What do the photographs from space tell us about the placement of our continents?
