Looks like pretty much no one who responded to this has watched the video. Europeans didn't have much to do with the demise of most of the empires mentioned. The main conclusion from the guy who made this video is that these African empires fell mostly because Africa is just too diverse and these empires are surrounded by too many rival ethnic groups. I don't think his analysis is all that interesting or insightful. Eurasian empires fell either when overrun by outside groups or when overthrown by rebels.
