    Because they were to busy fighting off the mega-megafauna.

    Humans never caused a single mass extinction in Eurasia and North America until modern times.
    All the megafauna we lost was killed off by shifting climates and habitats.
    Before modern man the only humans that caused significant biodiversity loss were Australian aboriginals.

    Fuck the overkill theory and fuck all the retards who still perpetuate it. PaleoAmericans have been confirmed the Americas since at least 23,000 and new finds may push that back as far as 37,000 years.
    The extinction event was caused by a comet.

    We evolved alongside african megafaune, therefore they were already aware of our collective shittiness and knew to stay far away from us or even actively hunt us if we got to close.

    North American wildlife had no idea what we were when we turned up, that and the fact that climate change at the end of the last ice age hit them much harder than southern megafauna. So they had much less time to adapt to our hunting strategies inbetween the Earth actively wanting to kill them too.

    Honest answer? A combination of factors, the largest of which was the Younger Dryas climate event (my money's still on a fragmenting comet strike setting half of North America on fire, explaining the Younger Dryas boundary field), the second being H. Sapiens spreading around the globe at around the same time. The other thing to remember is some of these animals haven't even been dead that long. Mammoths we're still around when the pyramids were being built.

    african animals coevolved with early humans and hominids and were adapted to live along them, eurasian and american ones weren't. Kind of like animals isolated on islands for too long get wiped out by non native predators

      This, and also because of disease. Tsetse fly and similar disease spreaders did a great job preventing humans from going hog-wild with agriculture and ranching, and also killed a lot of people keeping populations in check, which enabled some ecosystems to remain in pretty good condition until now.

    Meme answer: Animals outside of Africa and South Asia were not adapted to human hunting and thus were hunted to extinction
    Supreme Answer: climate change killed the megafauna in the more climatically turbulent continents
    Jet Fuel Can't Melt Steel Beam Answer: Africa and South Asia are large tracts of almost entirely tropical land, with tropical land being more ecologically stable, biologically diverse and consistently resourceful than temperate and polar places. The large size and stable ecology of Africa and South Asia provided better odds for megafauna survival than in the smaller, unstable continents.

    Simply put it is because most people in the world do not view the world as a thing of "value" to be traded for personal gain it is the place on which we most live so it is beyond that sort of value. For a few this isn't so and they invent world wars and capital economy and then force rest of world to join on... Then blame others for using tools they invent to live in hellish world they have created

      I expect so. Like people harp on the tragedy of giant, predatory creatures going extinct in modern times but motherfucker if you had to live around lions you would be overjoyed to learn you can just spray them with an AK. The animals that are pleasant to be around or generally capable of cohabitation with humans are the ones that were not driven from civilization entirely by the repeating firearm.

      Doubtless many died off for lesser reasons or unintentional cause but animals who can reliably prey on humans are not long for the world. Mountain lions are "shoot on sight" to most people for good cause.

    Eurasians and Americans did not genocide their megafauna. Those kinds of extinctions came much later. Anyways africans are dull and failed to domesticate the zebra, people will cope and say its because this creature lives near predators and thus is hostile but the same argument can be made for the europeans whose horses are the results of millennia of effort to buckbreak an animal that at times lived with Lions and Bears for human use. The earliest horses were just as troublesome as Zebras, but for some mysterious reason the African did not accomplish it despite having even more time to churn out at least 1 (one) domesticated breed.

            The earliest indo-european speakers are thought to originate from the steppes north of the Black Sea, with some groups heading heading west into the rest of Europe, conquering & bringing their language with them (and note that Celtic languages are Indo-European ones) and others headed west into Central Asia, then south to Iran & India, doing the same conquering & installing their language.

      There was a ~150 year period where hundreds of people from England to Australia tried to domesticate the zebra, to creater a cheaper and disease resistant horse.
      But they all failed to make anything more than "look at this zebra that usually doesn't bite me" one-off oddities.

        There was also a thing called the automobile that made the whole project kind of pointless.
        Anyway having a zebra pull a cart like that is more than any African ever managed. In fact, a cart is more than any African ever managed. In fact, that WHEEL is more than any African ever managed.
        Which is fine by the way, not everyone should have the same level of skill. Questions of superiority are pointless. No one would say a goat is superior to a sheep, or a cow superior to a horse. They're just different.
        Dispelling such black invention myths however is important, not to put black people "in their place" but to dispel lies and racial agitation from (mostly) those who speak on their behalf as a part of this resurgent anti-white ideology.
