Diamonds have only lost their value because we can grow them now. Back then they were extremely valuable as an export.
The animals are docile, they have cattle, boar, antelope, and several species of bird or ground rodent that they could have farmed.
About tools he means that they make shitty weapons that you can only use once, rather than make something like a spear or bow from bone or a hardier material that will last.
Mud is good for building in places like Africa because it has a cooling effect, compared to wood which is insulating.
Did the Africans build the boats and sail to India, or did the Indians arrive first and just do the trading on land? Cba looking this up.
Zebras, Giraffes, Elephants, and Gazelles. More common in Wild Africa (and even moreso before civilization started being imported) than the old Wild Buffalo of America.
Never an attempt at domestication. I may be missing a few, but the whole "Africa is a place of death" is normally inaccurate.
Hippos, Lions Wild Dogs (Should they count as something that was never domesticated?) are the most dangerous African animals, that are unique to Africa.
Other obvious ones like say the Crocodile lives in other places in the world so I didn't count it.
We know from a future perspective Diamonds ultimately have no meaning and thus no value, but through all of human history every culture valued diamonds. Though it may be an artificial Value, it is present nearly everywhere. I don't really know what this means, but just wanted to point out that Diamonds did have a value and the line "whjte people showed them their value" is still fitting.
The Tools, Rocks, and Trees mean that there are ample easy resources to use but that never were, despite the obvious advantages over mud brick. That being it's much easier to make a house out of wood than it is mud Brick (unless you have an "industry" created to speed up the creation of Mud Brick) and that Wooden houses and stone houses last longer and are more solidly/better insulated, and better protected from outside elements than Mud.
Don't know details about African Trading, but if you're thinking of North Saharan Africans, then the Phoenicians, Arabs, and The whole slew of cultures involved in the Silk Road are the renown traders of the area. I never heard of Sub Saharan traders beyond the trade of Salt for Gold and Ghana stuff. If you find anything substantial then that would be interesting.
