    some years ago ma cousins in da u.k came 2 ghana thinkin we lived on trees
    n i said 2 myself so thats what they tell n show them about africa on tv
    sayin africa is full of diseases(HIV aids),poverty,voodoo and violence
    this is not true n i think is time 2 speak out n break the silence
    da real reason why they show u these negative things about africa
    is cus u makin them rich n they dont want u 2 come bak home
    come back also means unity n standin on our own
    bob marley said
    africa unite,africa unite n were is b.maley now?he's dead
    the sameplace u can find pac,martin n malcom x
    dr.kwame nkrumah who gained independence 4 ghana(1957)
    had a vision of da original u.s.a(united states of africa)is also in da dirt
    we as africans(all blackpeople) should speak,preach n believe the words
    of all these great africans n continue their work
    n the reason y i say africans n put into bracket all blackpeople
    is because some ignorant blackpeople call themselves europeans,carribeans,
    americans n so on
    but the fact is if u got dark skin africa is where u from
    even online chatrooms when i say im from ghana or africa people leave
    or they dont believe
    we have such things like da internet on the continent
    that my people proves ma point
