daveinorillia: This is silly. All Marketing hype. Although "The Dark Continent" is archaic and may be offensive to some. The wording of the ad is meant to add a sense of adventure. Most of these scopes will never see Africa.

It should be no more offensive than "African-American" term for black (negro) people.

James Babb: Hunting can benefit a species. If a particular animal brings hunter tourists into an African community, that community will value and protect the species.

As for the "dark continent" reference, that was just a little sloppy. Even NPR made the same mistake.

What's wrong with "dark continent"?

Tape5: 'And God placed the gigantic disc of earth....'

Last time I checked it was a sphere.

It looks like disc from cosmos. Anyway, you are at the wrong forum section.
