If the government started a program to sponsor Blacks who wanted to go back to Africa, would u join?


You will get/own 15 acres in the African nation of your choice.

The land would come with a 3 bedroom home and a car.

You get $150,000 (USD) to spend how ever you want and you get an extra $50,000 for every minor you take with you (no more than 3).
Travel expenses covered.

You just cant come back to the US. And if found back in the country you will serve a mandatory life sentence.

You *&%^$#@Ein with it?

with africans still fighting for land repatriation from the whites, the africans back in africa will mostly tell you, fucck you very much ask you what entitles you to 'their' land?

think israel and palestine

also that would result in the devaluation of the us dollar..

Ha ha!
 
Well I personally think Black Americans have the lead in the diaspora about accepting themselves and embracing their blackness.  IMO, outside of America, especially in Africa and parts of Latin America, self-hatred is the norm.  It's not questioned.  Its just understood European is superior to black in every way imaginable. 
Caribbean people are just as accepting, i've seen some dress in traditional african type clothing i don't see that with american blacks. IA with some latin american countries though. 

Was just about to ask Uppity where the Caribbean falls? I see her leaving us out of the equation completely *vexed* lol

O/T My church is going to Africa next year and best believe I will be on that trip. I've haven't been to church in years and I have no idea where they're going .....not ashamedCool

Omni go back to who to where and cause a $hitload more problems?! No i don't think a mass/or miniscule exodus to Africa can be the answer. Ok Afro answered.

Eden LOL is not only we bleach all parts of the diaspora do and I dare anyone to say otherwise.

Jamaicans do embrace their blackness and their natural hair, they always have. The Rastafar religion/Teachings of Marcus Garvey also strengthened that. But again black make up the majority here. No i wont lie and say you won't get the taunting "creme (relaxe) your hair!" "are you Christian" " You head look bad" and such but natural hair has always been in>

But i do agree that more and more yardies are turning to natural hair and yes its a direct response to AA hair trends and hair care boards/blogs YTubers, that's a fact! When i saw SiliconMix in a BSS out here  i chuckled to myself and said thanks Sexib.

Wtf. First of all to the underlined, that would mean you would most likely be displacing native Africans from their rightful homes so naaaaaay to this whole concept.

Wait so the majority actually believe that Africans are more accepting of European norms than other blacks?

I would be hard pressed to find an African who would dig centuries into their lineage to find one drop of non-African blood...or who cling onto their great great great grandmother's daugther's pet rodent's chew toy being half Native American just to feel some sense of worthiness. 

Point being every group has its flaws.

All of the Africans with the exception of a few that I have met have been proudly African but have unfortunately succumbed to European standards of beauty, living, etc etc just like the rest of the diaspora.
