"In the case of a philosophical work, however, such an explanation seems not only superfluous but, in view of the nature of the subject-matter, even inappropriate and misleading." ~ Hegel ~ Phenomenology Spirit - 2nd Sentence - Page 1

The pro doesnt make a case for why all middle easterners are the spirit of africa, but ill present my case anyway.

1) The middle east includes Iran, Afghanistan, Israel, Syria, Turkey, and other countries that are not African so if anything Middle easterners carry the spirit of Asia, not Africa.

2) African spirit isnt limited to people of Middle Eastern descent, it includes people from the Saharan Desert, from Central Africa, from the countries that border the Mediterranean sea, etc. The spirit of Africa is not made solely from people from areas close to the Middle East

3) What the hell is the spirit of Africa?
