for real man, we could be kings back home. sheet the mexican has already passed us by here, but if we went back home we could run the show, and show the world just how good we are without yt holding us down. I say all 40 million of us black brothers and sisters blow this place and go back home, we would have oil and gold and diamonds, and we could kick the rest of the yt's out of south africa and we would be in heaven!

Sure right after you find us jobs and homes and a country where we would be able to keep our own developed culture.

I don't think Mexicans have passed us by.

I also don't think "overtaking Africa" would be that easy as it is being primed to be exploited by the U.S. and other world powers as we type.

Also how are the inhabitants going to feel about 40 million peeps who some may not even feel any kind of kinship too or even feel hostility towards land on their soil?

On top of that Africa is not united. There are all these countries, headed by different types of governments, multiple languages etc..

That would be challenging, but I personally would love to live there.

i believe that wholeheartedly, because its too ridiculous.

and I believe the quanteska or whatever the f**k is white too, because there is just no way that anybody could be that ignorant and be able to operate a computer.

Mexicans have far lower socioeconomic stats in the USA than African-Americans.

Your lifestyle, in fact, if you're black OR white in the USA, is subsidized by their cheap labor.

Jim Crow has evolved now...instead of those classified as "black" being affected, it is used against those classified as "illegal"...to maintain them as blacks once were in a cheap pool of easily exploitable labor.

Move back to Africa???

I joined the Peace Corps and visited Ghana for a month last year to volunteer and help out for the Aids crisis taking over. And let me tell you something, my Brothas and Sistas, they don’t particularly like us.

Sure, we have the melanin in our skin to produce our brown complexions of varying degrees. But one thing is they think that we’ve had it better than they did. And truth be told-we did. Our country is suffering, but not as bad as Africa.

I forgot the word that they called me, but the basic meaning was still the same…we are not alike.

At first, that shocked me and sort of hurt me to know that they felt this way about blacks from America and other countries outside of Africa. But then I got over it. It’s the way of the world.

But one thing I know is that I am not moving back to Africa. I would gladly go and visit-I’m joining again next year. But I would not live there.

It’s a sad thing to know that a country and people that we call our own, don’t even view us in the same thread.

It is amazing that such a topic comes up.. and then people buy into it.. "back to" the same thing white folks say, "go back to" back to implies that is where you are from..400 years and you talk about going back..black Americans have as much or more invested in this country..perhaps if more time was spent on being Americans rather than African Americans, things could be better.Descendants of slaves, have evolved into a different people altogether,there is nothing about Africa in them, perhaps a bit of color, but the mores, folkways,customs,values, are so different..Be Americans,,and get over the "back to" thing. Trust, you've experienced this..and I know first hand too..

First of all ,Africa is a continent and not a country ! you went to ghana and Africa got many other countries.I went to Africa : Senegal,Benin,Botswana,Tanzani a and ghana and believe me it was wonderful.Don't think that all africans want to live in America,many live a wonderful life and don't envy blacks from the west as you think.It is all about culture,it is not a surprise if africans act like that with you , you have nothing to do with them culturally ,racially or socially,they can think you are lost because no african cultural ties!generally,africans are offended by someone who got european ways!you cannot expect to feel like home if you ignore african customs and history facts showed us that you cannot go back to Africa ,Liberia is a good example ,first african country in war and many economic problems because former slaves coming from America failed to integrate themselves,not black enough to be in america but not white enough to be integrated in the us!!so america is a better solution for you!Marcus garvey used to say that going back to Africa is not for lost soul.

I feel ya that's what I'm saying with all the intelligent, hands on, innovative and hard working black people in the world we must can go back and re-built Africa and live harmoniously with one another. But there are too many people that would rather stay in places that weren't designed for us which is kinda messed up if you ask me. Once I am done with school Africa will be my destination because i want to re- built it and learn about my culture.
