    Aome of my older family has left and are still in Africa today,I myself had made some reservations with them but they are now elderly and cannot keep up with everything as I can, I will have to wait until I am older.


    Economic oppurtunities and an escape from governments that are seeminlgy upheld by America when they contradict democracy.Many governments are overthrown by American govt when it cannot use them and their leader is really trying to help the people for example:http://www.destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40441

    What "anger" have you read here? Can you quote some of this "anger" that you refer to?

    For that matter, how is it even possible to discern "anger" on a website?


    ,

    This is the problem with these "America: Love it or Leave it" discussions: people think that the only place that Black people can go, is Africa.

    You do realize that there are 7 continents, and 100's of countries on this earth, yes?

    If you are going to answer your own question, then why bother asking it?

    That's what makes this country ours? According to "them", you are not even a human being.

    And further according, something that is not human, cannot claim ownership.

    Really? Do you have children?

    If so, do you inflict them with horrid diseases? Do you tell them lies everytime you open your mouth? Do you call your children God-awful names? Do you refuse to feed, clothe, and shelter them?

    If we are indeed America's children, then that's not saying much. In the meantime, there is a word for the kind of children that we have become:

    More rhetoric.

    Do you actually know any Africans?

    Exactly,did you also know that black people are indigenous to many places?



    Abu Uthman Amr ibn Bahr al-Jahiz wrote:

    "And they said, 'The number of blacks is greater than the
    number of whites, because most of those who are counted as
    whites are comprised of peoples from Persia, the mountains,
    Khurasan, Rome, Slavia, France, and Iberia, and anything
    apart from them is insignificant.

    But among the blacks are counted
    * Zanj
    * Ethiopians
    * Fezzani
    * Berbers
    * Copts
    * Nubians
    * Zaghawa
    * Moors

    the people of
    * Sind
    * the Hindus
    * the Qamar
    * the Dabila
    * the IndoChinese

    and those beyond them. The sea is more extensive than the
    land, and the islands in the sea between IndoChina and Zanzibar
    are full of blacks, like the
    * Sarandib
    * Kalah
    * Amal
    * Zabij and its islands up to Hindustan and IndoChina
    * Kabul and those coasts.


    "They said, 'The Arabs come from us -- not from the whites
    -- because of the similarity of their colour to ours. The
    Hindus are more yellow in color than the Arabs, yet they
    are counted among the black peoples."

    True indeed, My Brother. I'm very familiar with this Hadith.

    Also, just like the Hon. Elijah Muhammad said, "The Planet Earth is the entire home of the Black Man".

    PEACE

    This just goes to show, that it will take KNOWLEDGE to liberate our people, not rhetoric, not feelings, and certainly not BELIEF.

    All those things have, and continue to fail us miserably.

    Yet our people continously run from knowledge as if it were at :ghost:

    We are so content to believe anything, yet know nothing. Spouting off the latest morsels of propganda that the White man has fed us, not being able to tell the truth from fiction.......Such a shame.

    Good Question.......

    I don't think too many Blacks in America would make an exodus to Africa seeing the state of most of that continent. There will need to be some major cleansing, and government reform before I even consider it. I think if we push a little harder and collectively clean up our act, we may be able to make a home here, just in a separated territory, i.e, the Northwest, southwest, and most importantly the southern states. We have too much spilled Blood and sweat to go anywhere, especially without seeing some degree of major justice first. At least we would've been able so say we got ours:sand:

    In light of corporate downsizing, outsourcing, Nafta etc, perhaps a better question should be, how many may be forced to leave?

    Take a good look around you at the changing demographics of the nation.
