I understand where you're coming from. But, to me I see it as the best way to fight back and force them to change. The thing is, we have to understand that whites value money more than anything else. Until you impact their money, nothing of any significance is going to happen. So, protesting, marching, bringing awareness, electing a different President, is not going to change the racist culture of this country. We have to hit them where it matters, their money.Sure, leaving the USA is one option for some African Americans and the reason I say that is because you need money to move and everyone who might want to leave, will find it difficult to if they don't have the resources to make that happen.
And, you had better know that where you're going is a better place for AA's and not assume that just because we may all be Black that we are accepting of each other. And you'd better hope that the country you want to relocate to will have open borders and accept you in masse.

But, for me, why "run away" when we still have some constitutional rights and freedoms that give us an ability to change things where we are? We may not have come here voluntarily, but we built this nation, fought and died for the right to be treated as deserving citizens and to receive equitable treatment. Some of us may not want to give up the fruits of our labor or the labor of our ancestors, or forget those who fought and died for us and whose bones are buried in the very soil that they toiled over and called "home." We have spent generations honing the skill to know our enemies that are brutal but not that smart and I won't give them the satisfaction when they try to make it so unbearable here for us--or so they would like to think--that I would choose to leave. Somehow that smells to me like a coward and that, I'm not.
That's just me...
That said, we contribute over 1 trillion dollars per year to the US economy. That's more than the entire GDP of Spain. Without blacks, the US economy would crash. Period. That's incredible power for ~12% of the population. If we used that power to fight back economically, blacks would win, and winning I cannot view as cowardice. So, it is not running away, it is destroying a country that has tried to destroy us. The biggest problem is that there's no balance in the world. The US gets to destroy any country they want at their own whim. Not coincidentally it is consistently non-white countries. Well, what if they weren't able to do that anymore? Right now I feel complicit.
