it's the only thing that niggers built in africa asides from a really big mud hut

they didn't even know how to make mortar or concrete to secure the stones, which was easy as fuck to make btw

This. A building from the same century from Europe.

These look impressive if you think they are from like thousands of years ago, but they are 14th century, and that just makes them look primitive as hell.

If I'm not mistaken, it was quite difficult for colonial powers like Portugal to break into the interior of Zimbwabe because some of the aggressive tribes folks that lived there. They also built some decent fortification, atleast decent for African standards.

It's a misunderstanding that "Great Zimbabwe" was actually great. It's just "great" in the sense that it's a particularly big "zimbabwe" or stone circle.
Similarly "Great Britain" was just a statement of geographical fact.
