A “Go Back to Africa” media campaign uses AI to boost African American tourism

The company recently partnered with FCB/SIX, a data-driven creative agency, to create an AI platform which collects real time social media posts of black travelers throughout the continent.

I see that it's founders are a couple of brothers Eric Martin and Kent Johnson. This may be a helpful way to generate more interests in Africa from our brother and sisters. If anyone is interested in Partnership opportunities, here is a link Black and Abroad.

Thanks Al D. Too bad they have a relationship with Norwegian Airlines. I guess no one told them about the Joanne Wickenden incident.

Hey SOA, I had no idea who she is but she appears to be just another white woman that is fascinated with the size of a Black man's sex organs.
I'm pretty sure that these brothers have performed their due diligence and wouldn't put themselves in a position that they felt would be detrimental to their business..

Well, 'Black & Abroad' certainly sounds better.
Hello Chevron, "Black and Abroad" does sound better.. It's the "Go" that makes it comes off as an innuendo for some. Personally, I feel folks are just way too sensitive aside from taking things out of context.. It's only derogatory if it's meant that way!

Yes, I agree in that it is only derogative if it's deliberate and meant to be racist.
I think that in so many situations there will always be negative people but as long as the leaders in our government do not support it then it should not be taken to heart.

Hey Chevron, apparently the company is rebranding the narrative associated with the term GO Back to Africa to present it in a positive light since the term is used over 4500 times a month on social media in a deraogative context. So, These brothers and their company Black and Abroad have partnered with a firm that will redact any Go Back to Africa post on social media with some positive content about Africa.
