    You ever hear of a group titled State Nationals ?

    Did you know that the courts prior to the Civil War never saw the United States as one nation, but as a society of States, an association?

    Citizenship was first through your State and then Citizen of the United States prior to the Civil War.

    With the passage of the 14th Amendment, this has been reversed. Now one is a citizen of the United States and a resident of the State.

    Actually, a citizen was a member of a city, although many States call their internal, private law municipal law.....

    Yes, I considered doing so but was advised against it by some of my African friends from Ghana because some repatriation programs are based on dual citizenship.

    Furthermore, within the framework of the African Kingdoms Federation, Africans Invthe diaspora are a recognized Maroon "tribe" and this status supersedes any citizen ship rites under national laws of sovereign states. The supreme authority rests upon the federation council of elders and imperial royals and nobles.

    Does that mean an African American can immigrant to any country in Africa without a visa?

    No not if you are a citizen of the united states but you may be able to as a citizen of Ghana, Kenya or South Africa.

    This conversation truly interests me and I am not sure I totally understand what you were saying. Would this diaspora have made me more eligible to gain citizenship in Africa, then? Or does this all just simply not apply to African Americans, only to those in other countries.

    I guess I'm asking for expansion :)

    Sorry for the confusion.

    What I was trying to say is that if you renounce your citizenship you would have to be a citizen of an African country to freely travel, and you may be able to travel with less restrictions.

    However, if you have dual citizenship you may have more restrictions, because you most likely would be traveling with an American passport.

    Do you know if Ghana is the only country which has reached out to the diaspora directly and offered dual citizenship? I'm not aware of any others....

    No. But, I have considered a dual citizenship in an African country which offers it.
