This again proves that the Uneducated are not quick to embrace the educated even if its he same skin color
What's the name of this program? I saw one called beyond borders and it was great.

One would think that some of these greedy guys would be all over Africa trying to increase their fortunes. But perhaps maybe they have yet to realize the investments opportunities there. Or they made scared and have no faith in Africa.

It took travelling to the US to realise that black is a word that can be used to describe me. I have always considered myself african...only in the west am I black...
PROBLEM NUMBER 1! Europeans and Arabs kicked your asses for thousands of years because they only looked at you as BLACK! While you were fighting among your damn tribes whites walked in and kicked ALL OF YOUR ASSES!

And you still havent given up the tribal mentality, whites gave ALL OF YOU HIV! They considered all of you useless eaters and proceed to kill millions of YOU!

African Americans are not quick to embrace African migrants, I guess that means African Americans are uneducated, by your logic.

How many rich white people are running after or to rich AA neighborhoods and throwing their money around to impress them. LOL! You are a marginalized people as a group, you do not have the luxury of jumping ship. I know the concept of unity was whipped out you back in the day but one can always relearn it. You should be having black banks lending money to black who want to venture out in world to make money. Do you know how, say, chinese and jews become successful? They pool their resources and invest in competent guys in their communities. When they succeed they do the same for the next guy. As i said it is an alien concept to negroes in general. WWhitey has given all the reasons to be the most united group in America but....
blacks in america are only about ME; individualism, get "mine" and screw everyone else. hell i dont even trust them they have stabbed me in the back repeatedly.

Most of them are leased for 99years with the possibility of extension. So let's say the current life expectancy is roughly 65 across Africa (sadly, even lower depending on the region). A child born today will never have access to that 99year leased land and will never call it 'ours'... Leasing is possible another form of acquisition and more concretely, land ownership.
Valid points, but Africa has more than abundant land for farming - Africa is the second largest continent in the world. I stress that the land leased is only for agricultural purposes to insure food security. The agreements do not represent permanent ownership. Africa is only leasing land for farming purposes. Do you want to be a farmer?

A lot of black Africans that immigrate to America, UK go back and invest in some business in Africa. American born people are very ignorant about Africa so I don't think they are capable of knowing the first thing about Africa, about investing. Africa will change their mindset. It's not all slums and mudhuts, they clearly have houses and of course the net since many come on this forum. Black Americans, look at the rich ones just too self absorb to do anything for anyone else.

Since black Americans are entertainment giants around the world. They can start off with art. They can invest in nollywood and other arts. Second black Americans can easily control tourism in Africa. I will start with these two.
If I may add to the list :

Since us AA folk love to shop how about this - instead of Arabs and Koreans retailing us common goods why not just pool some Black dollars provide capital to the common unemployed, yet skilled farmers, tailors, manufacturers, etc who'll make clothes, jewelry, electronics, and other accessories and sell them in African American markets around the country.

When I was about 19 yrs old my mother took my grandmother and me to a Nigerian tailor who made us our African garment for a graduation ceremony. My mom spent almost $500 for the outfit but was well worth it. Why should it be non-BLK folk raking in the BLK dollars in America. Koreans with African American beauty shop with no BLKs as partners or even as employees. Does anyone have ANY idea how much money Africa can make from Black dollars? I mean produce, clothing, heck, even music. I like African music myself.

Sorry for the double post above. Idk why AAs and Africans are so disunited. You don't find the caucausian race so disunited. AAs are welcome in Africa. Not just West Africa. This is why black people never prosper as a race. Infighting, jealously and disunity
Maybe if our ancestors were not sold off, just maybe. I hate to tell you this, and I dont hate africans, but AA's will never unite with africans. We are too far gone, and dont even think of ourselves as africans. Africa is the past for us, and we are morphing more and more every century. We look at ourselves as a distinct people, with our own culture. We were a people who come from folks that that sold us off to europeans, we had to make our own idenity, and that came along with struggles that africans did not experience here, you just dont get it. Just because you see people with your skin color, it does not mean they are going to connect with you. When you go through what our people have went through, you form a idenity among yourselves, and long going separation has done this for us. Africa is not on our minds like that, and we are strangers to each other, because of the ills of slavery.
