Most of the newly freed slaves weren't even down with that back to Africa movement and Im years and years removed.

I never once said everyone is Africa is starving . I think no one should be hungry , especially in America . We throw out tons of food each year . I would love to open a kitchen where people could eat anytime of the day or night . Akon is not going to leave his 6 mansions anytime soon .

In theory it sounds great but the reality is, it's a horrible idea. I'm not interested in being called a stray and having slavery thrown in my face. I'm definitely not interested in people pretending they don't feel this way because of some misconception that because I'm American that I have money. 

 I'm not saying AA are innocent either. There's no way around it, we have been influenced by whites  including their sense of entitlement. As a whole, I don't see us adjusting to their way of life, learning the languages etc but rather expecting them to adapt to us.

I don't think visiting a place as a tourist is a good way to gauge how the standard of life is.

I live in Portland, Oregon. We get about 8 months of rain!! I hate it. The black population here is about 3% [:^(] trust me, you would get tired of being wet all the time. [LOL]

i don't get the whole "royalty" thing...not everyone is gonna be royalty. lets be real.

if you wanna make an argument about having a whole race of ppl emigrate to Africa, great. but i need more than being "treated like royalty" as a reason.

ive thought about moving out of the country, but idk where.

i would encourage everyone who considers donating globally (which is great) to also consider donating time/money locally as well.

That is absoluely correct.
 
I have been to Africa several times .. to many countries and EVERY PLACE I have gone with my dark skin and kinky hair the locals ask me where I am from ... shortly followed by 'will you sponsor me to go back to America with you ah.. cousin'.  They wanna get the h*** outta there.
 
Ya'll need to visit Africa - Senegal, Irory Coast, Nigeria, Ghana ... you will be so much of an outsider culturally and .. you will be ready to leave within a week after dealing with the no hot water thing, and the crime. the strange looking handling of fresh meat thing, the barbed wire around the housing complexes to keep the thieves out, the markets to buy your food and the no power thing.Ouch
 
Get real folks. Stop your dreaming - it was nice to visit but I could never LIVE in a non-western society. DeadDeadDead Too different.
I hope an African lion eats you. I truly do.LOL

Don't be silly. That's not true. 
Would you like to match my monthly donations to the church below ? Families are starving . I send money directly to the church . I would be happy to send you the address . Families like the one below can use the money to grow crops . People are starving in africa 2013. 
Christian Church, Malawi, around 2000




Scratching my head and wondering if your response is serious...Naw, you cant be that silly. 

And don't bother bringing your age in to this. I don't care. 
Are you this evil in real life ? You quoted me and said i was silly. I gave you a answer . Maybe we should bring your age into the equation . If you think people are not hungry in africa, which was the only thing i said  . Stop quoting me if you don't agree .  I refuse to respond to whatever you come back with  . Have a bless day .Ermm


I am not evil in real life. I am actually an OK person. And double whammy for me, I don't go twisting people's words to suit my own agenda. 

I quoted you originally as you said 'Black people in Africa are starving'. Not everyone in Africa (continent) is starving. You only need to look at your own back yard to know that starvation is everywhere. That same narrative about starving Africans that you have swallowed from the yt man that the whole of  Africa is starving is incorrect. Yes, there are people who are very poor and food is a major issue but that cannot be said for every African person. 

You wanting to send me receipts of the church you sponsor is silly. What would it prove. 

You're always on the attack when someone does not agree with you.

i avoided this thread until now cus i thought it was a song of his.. 

africans stay trying to separate themselves from us too though..

they come here and act like theyre too good.. imagine if we were to go there.. 

[/QUOTE

chile, we wouldn't belong there either.. I wish there was a place in Amerikkka that we could go like Rosewood (but not in Flawda) where we could just live in peace.. My people shed blood for this country and this is my only home...

Becky aka Printer_Ink you're always putting down black people at every turn, and enjoying the freedom those ahead of us fought for.

IMO, you insulted all African people living on the continent of Africa and everywhere.   JMHO!

ETA:  I made an error and did not proofread, it should be "before us", not "ahead of us"
