Should Blacks leave America and live elsewhere or attempt to start a successful nation-state somewhere?

I cannot believe, you are asking the same outdated lame question. If they have'nt moved after 1865. I would assumed, they are not going anywhere. What do you think?

What nation have you personally, started that is successful?

URGENT:....

So far, our numbers are growing. However, most of our people are responding to threads that could not have been started by African-Americans or Africans. Let's take this seriously and get the word out to people in this forum. We don't want for them to self-destroy. We will remain positive. As sunflower stated:

"Petty interests and personal differences must be put aside to work for the common goal of our people's welfare."

I couldn't have said it better.

I don't know a 'person' that started their own nation state.

The question is actually this, should African Americans which are the richest Blacks in the world start a country based on successful models such as the UAE. The answer to me is clearly yes, Blacks should try to establish a stronghold that they can champion.

There's plenty of land in Antarctica. Wear your long underwear and say hello to the penguins or us.

I'll pass on this; little too chilly in Antartica; may as well stay here in New England.

The U S and other lands would not honor it diplomatically...

So we would be isolated, from trade and what not, just like Cuba and Zimbabwe and Eritrea was (not sure about now)

Also, our people have died, paid taxes, fought in all the wars, suffered, helped to build, etc this country...

We have "roots" here.

I do think that our people need a "home base", the way foreign Blacks and others have...

Like a place to send money where the currency will be more valuable and a place to get political and social support and to give political and social support.....

They can if they want to per individual/family circumstances.
If you're suggesting that gov't policy be to make black folks that are U.S. citizens leave by force @ gunpoint, We, the Rest of the People (including we white folks) aren't going to put up with it.
The operative phrase is U.S. citizens, I'm not opposed to the feds aggressively enforcing the immigration laws.
Tim John, if you look at all the stats regarding black-governed nation-states throughout the world and compare them to the stats of blacks in the U.S., you'll find that blacks living in the U.S. are far and away doing better. I know it sounds crazy, but how many people from around the world are risking everything to flee to Africa?

It could be done in the United States itself.
It's a natural outgrowth of political correctness.
There's been other examples in the past; the Oneida (NY) religious community, then there's Amish country, all the way to Islamberg, the militant and armed fanatical black ex-felons that took up Islam in prison and set up their own terrorist training camp on U.S. soil.
The U.S. is huge, the Free State Project is something very similar to what you suggest.

Hey, I'm kind of hoping Obama isn't going to kick my white ass out of Minnesota!
The way the U.S. should work is we get to stay where we can afford, I hope.
So watch that cotton-picker talk!

I'm not sure of the exact date but I know it was in the 1800s--freed slaves. George Bush went to Liberia the other day.
