    I was in Africa for more than 200,000 years. That's all that anyone needs to know.

    I talk alot about Haiti, never been there but if a Hatian is catching hell, I have no peace!

    I talk much about Africa, but if an African is opressed I have no peace

    Jews, care about other Jews all over the planet

    Chinese care about other Chnese wherever they are on the globe

    Black folks sometimes don't care about folks living right across the street or even their own kith and kin.

    An injury to one is an injury to all

    MsInterpret, I'm curious:

    To what degree do you find so many folks talking about afrikan that compels you to
    ask who has traveled there?

    To be more precise, what exactly has been said that evokes such inquiry?

    What degree??? Everyone on here acts like they know so much about Africa...When they never even been! I don't give a **** if you studied it, to me...knowing it is actually physically experiencing it in the skin you are in RIGHT NOW...Bump all that stupid noise that you been 200,000 years ago...Sounds nice...(I guess)

    I find it to be very peculiar for people to talk so much about "knowing" about Africa when they have never even stepped foot on the soil....Never once breathed the air, smelled it....ONLY SEEN PICTURES and read some text.

    How hard is it to get a ticket, passport, vaccinations, and what-not to go to the land you speak of and love so much....???????

    And since my inquiring mind wants to know, I'ma ask...seeing how I can do that.

    I live in Africa and I'm from the states, and I've read from people on this site that know more about Africa than a lot of actual Africans that I have spoken to. Yes, they should go but IMO they're doing a good job on what they already know. Not every African is knowledgeable about the history of Africa as a whole...., but with that said, there's just so much to know.
