Thank you for this video bruh. I want to ask you a question to get your POV. I was in Sears the other day, and this brutha who was Nigerian engaged me in a conversation because I asked him how do they view blacks in America. I been to several African countries which is why I asked. He said that we are viewed differently because of us being slave. We are viewed as being separate from them. These are not views, but he was just answering my question, and gave me an answer that I've heard many times before. So if this is the case, where are we to go?

Also, on the religion issue. I agree 100% with him. Christianity is spreading throughout Africa, Animism was our original religion.

Peace!

Where are we to go?

Wherever we fit in. Did you see the link I posted a few weeks ago about the community founded in Tanzania by the former Black panthers Charlotte and Pete ONeal ?

Thanks for reminding me of that couple. Perhaps a small piece of evidence that show afrikan folk are doing things. It just doesn't see the light of day where the media is concerned (no surprise there). Perhaps the 'doing' just isn't doing fast enough for many. I guess everyone expects to see a home-run on the first pitch/swing of the bat.

Mmm my man KaHotep is absolutely right.There's this Ghanaian who lived and worked in Japan for i think a fews years and spoke Japanese fluently.He got a little misunderstanding with Japanese girlfriend,arrested,case got dismissed in court and right before he was bailed out the Japanese police officer(s) and the jail doctor or nurse gave him an injection that left him paralized.He said when he was in jail they insulted him in Japanese saying "How can an African get a Japanese girl like that and we gonna teach him a lesson."

Saw him on TV telling his story.Its was so sad.what a shame.Racism is everywhere.God is the only answer if you believed and followed the word and Pray often you would have had inner peace, knowledge, understanding and wisdom and it wouldnt matter where you lived.

I would love to visit Japan,China etc someday so good move on that.

To Brother Omowale.

I live in Ghana,Once again i disagree with what the Nigerian told you.I dont know how old he is.This (my)generation are curious about African Americans and welcoming.To be Honest with you Nigerian are a different breed of Africans.They feel superior to everybody and i can appreciate that cuz their leaders have putting that i can do spirit in them.There's a badside to that too but dont wanna go into that.I Respect any group of people/individual who push till they are where they wanna be but in truth.

I try my very best not to judge people.We should all try and treat people as individuals and not Condemn an entire tribe/race or country.Remember thats what the Whites did to us.One of Africa's biggest problem is tribalism. Nas and Damian Marley have a beautiful song called "Tribal War" feat. K'naan off their Album together "Distant Relatives." Everybody here should read the lyrics.Get the album.All the songs are about Africa.Videos are on Youtube.Jah Bless.

there are MORE black people in Brooklyn than in the country of Japan…..
Like I said, my scope is Global. My ex is from Brooklyn and she didn't even stay there so why are you trying to push Brooklyn on me when you don't even live there!

I said before in this thread my first option is moving to South Africa within five years, but Japan is a viable option for business reasons because of growing trade between South Africa and Japan.

End of discussion!
