I have been curious about this 4 a while. In all fairness would our brothas and sistas over in da States move to Africa under any circumstances? Scenario: Da powers dat b decide 2 become even more racist than before. I see dem all on T.V reciting de same 'ol tired line once dey have touched African soil "I feel like i've come home" etc. Would they survive if they were all put in a big boat and shipped off to where they came from? Please put my mind at ease on this topic & plz b real. No need to be politically correct just tell us da truth. Word!!!!!!!!!

hell yea we'd move to Africa. I'm woking on it right now! I don't care if i do have to come in a rickty broke down boat I'm comin'. And if anyone wants to kick me some change lemme know.

Boats, planes and buses ain't free u know.

p.s. mad peeps over here (u.s.a.) would come back if they knew how beautiful Africa really is.

Glad you caught that one! I mean, first off, Whites do not even have the authority to "ship" anyone any place, given the fact that European/Cuacasians ARE NOT indigenous to American soil. So we dont even need to debate on Who Should Go Back Home!

And by the way there are already a number of African Americans moving to countries such as Nigeria, South Africa and naturally Ghana.

I feel u.Its all about recognising struggle.It doesn't really matter where u r.Personally I wouldn't understand why someone would leave a place like the U.S. coz there's more opportunities there than here.Its not that I'm saying the gates are just open and its easy but at least u can do more there than u can here. If u guys really came down to live here you would be surprised at the difference.there's a lot of shit that u guys take for granted that u'd miss down here.

Personally I don't feel like like u guys in the U.S> need some sort of African validation from us.U r who u given where U r and that should be enuff for anyone.

Listen y'all, i don't think black peolple out there in the states would leave everything and come back to Africa if they ain't got a good reason or if they ain't gonna get a good job outhere.The point is that although these people ancestors was forced to leave africa, their brodas nowadays are choosin' by themselves to emigrate to states in order to have a better job or position in life.All I gotta say is that each african Born or african descendant should choose where they wanna live at.If black people in the U.S. take advantage of their geographic position the whole African continent can benefit from it.In street slang, to be less polite...

WE EARN THE MONEY IN THE MOTHAFUCKIN' U.S. AND INVEST IT IN THE MOTHERLAND-AFRICA!!!!

One love brodas...and...please...let's keep with this good discussions but in order to enhance africa not just for self enhancement
