There are *7* continents in this world; Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America & South America.. hope that clears up any confusion!!.. Never the less the majority of this racial arguments I’ve been seeing in these posts are Mute bc all these children/Co-Champions are AMERICAN from the United States of America-the country Not the continent.
