In case anyone was confused, and didn't read all the way to the bottom:

Although comically presented, these questions are illustrative of the harmful profiling, invasive badgering and discrimination immigrants go through on a daily basis to try and ‘prove’ themselves to institutions and countries that continue to systemically undervalue them.

I hope it was obvious to everybody here, but perhaps I'm overestimating?

It wasn't obvious to me. Based on the title, I assumed it was a guide for white people on how to gain entry to an African country, or guidelines for white people on how to visit an African country without becoming one of those tourists. Once I started reading the actual article, I was confused, because it wasn't about what the title said it would be about. I then assumed it was an angry rant against ignorant white tourists, until I got to the very bottom, and then it all made sense.

I don't think it would have been so confusing if the author made the last paragraph be the first paragraph, and they changed the title to something like "If African People Said the Same Shit to British Tourists that British Citizens Say to African Immigrants".
