That just so happens to be "black" countries. I didn't see where you mentioned any financials that would suggest you could make a lot of money, you want to do it strictly because they are black. Otherwise, this stupid idea would never even occur to you. And where are black people supposed to get this money from unless white people buy their music?

Who cares what you think about black people attempting to unify through business and money.

Well then perhaps white people in America should unify, separate themselves from black people and shut black people out, right? Why does this rule only work one direction? What would happen if white people stopped going to basketball games or stopped buy gangsta music? Where would the money come from for your plan?

Malcontent, you sound like the typical american, ignorant of the change going on in Africa (we actually prefer it that way).

Do a search for chinese investment in Africa, how the chinese are partnering with African entrepreneurs and creating billionnaires and millionnaires (go to Forbes annual billionnare ratings and see the number of africans who are now in the double digits of billions from setting up industry and not music, not even one musician, we value education and entrepreneurship, not clowning).

and it is not only china, do a search for the russian bank Renaissance capital in Africa.

Like most americans,you missed the memo on oil in africa. why do you think Obama and Hillary wer focused on africa? if you read this economis article, it tells you that american companies are loosing big time mainly to the chinese but also the russians, brazilians and other asians. these groups actually partner with africans and so there is true wealth transfer:

do a search for General Electric recruiting in africa, after 50 years ofdoing fly ins they realize tht multinationals from other countries are making billions, GE now has top brass living in africa and they are hiring africans from local universities, something that chinese firms have been doing for years.

y9ou may think we are backwards but your rich american entrepreneurs and republicans who are busy sinking their money into Africa dont think so.

I was talking about where the black American investor is supposed to get his investment money from if white people didn't buy gangsta rap. Africa would probably do much better with the Chinese than African Americans.

No I didn't, you didn't read everything I said. I said that was the only reason that anybody should be interested in any African country, and for the most part, it IS the only reason. I'll bet that you can see a clear correlation between Chinese and Russian interest and the country having oil and they are not courting the poor countries with no oil.

The chinese investors are in the poor countries with no oil. Why? Because even the poor in AFrica want to buy solar lamps, cell phones and books for their children. and there is construction to be done in all countries.

another emerging model is where the africans in these countries go to China and bring the goods to sell.

Ethiopia is one of the countries with the least amount of oil and minerals, but Chinese and Indian investment has soared past billions of dollars. You were saying?

This would make sense if I was banning whites out of Africa which I am not and by the way this is just for fantasies. Also white billionaires benefit most from basketball.

Yes they do, but where are the black Americans supposed to get their investment money from if white people didn't go to basketball games and buy gangsta music?

Hmm... I see nothing wrong in investing in Africa. Many others are doing it so why not? If I had the resources to do so at the moment, I would.

you are talking of africa as if its a town no country could have enough assets to purchase africa black america conbined can not even buy a province In africa e.g Aliko dangote cement empire is worth more than 16billion dollar and still expanding richest african american is worth 2.5bn dollar african billionaires and millionaires combined have an asset of 1.2trn dollar you can google that so what you are suggesting is a pipe dream paradox can not literary happen not forgetting africa rich and middle class are still growing by leaps and bounds no country in the world have enough resources to purchase africa

"Should African Americans buy Africa?"

Only if they accept food stamps as currency. Maybe African Americans should start with a time share mud hut and go from there. Hey, ask a silly question, get a silly answer.

Why do blacks always have to devide each other?
The biggest issues with blacks is trust, we never show that to each other. "black americans" should AAs really be devided from the rest of the black race?

Thats our problem, we dont know how to get along, trust each other, love each other, or work together, we are lacking the leadership in every category, and thats continent wise, country wise, gender wise, can we ever work things out for the best?

While whites stick together, and work together we push each other away, and rather look for other options other than work together

When a football team wins a game that team needs everybody to work together in order to win right?
When a basketball team win a game that team needs the whole team to work together in order to win right?
When a army go fight in a war that army needs the whole army to work together right?

So do you think blacks will get anywhere by spliting each other apart, and keep hating each other?
The biggest issue is that blacks look down on each other way too much.
You got the AAw who looks down on the AAm, and you got the africans who looks down on the AAs, so much for so much hate in your hearts against your own people.

Like i said you got the AA men who don't like AAw, AAw don't like AAm, Africans can't get along with AAs.

Ghanians dont really like us nigerians, south africans dont like us, why do we have to hate each other instead work together?
I just don't get it.

Yes, but isn't your opinion colored by your homosexuality?
