Africa was central that it was raped, exploited, and plundered for its material and human resources. It did not have authority in the up-and-coming global systems thus marginalized. Its marginalization probed up due to west dominance that predicted presumed cultural, racial, and psychological inferiority, a belief that many proclaimed distinguishing the western intellectuals. Up to the 1930s, exotic peoples’ samples including Africans were displayed and acquired for education in the wealthiest Europeans’ homes, world, and regional affairs. This foundation built essentialist consensus and racist of the untimely twenty-first century: African termed as a basket of diseased, impoverished, and crisis-ridden nations led by uncouth and inept leaders, a view to its marginality to global social, political, and more so the economic affairs. A critical and a historical perspective generate a better understanding of Africa’s predicament in underdevelopment. Africa’s underdevelopment is associated with conjunctures between the failing markets and structural inequities as a result of race and gender disparities. The effect of these conjunctures within the black community situated in the United States incorporates being unvalued in healthcare, housing security, education, whilst being offered less credit and overcharged than others. The white monopolies entrenchment in many career ladders and job markets creates spillover costs among the blacks’ market. The blacks bear such spillovers when the whites take a flight to the suburbs, creating fewer tax rolls to sustain public services and avail requisite cities’ infrastructure.
