Al Jazeera is obviously running low on material.

#11 They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.

Why do they move?
Ghana is cheaper than where they did live.

#12 Having worked with many actual Africans, they HATED the African Americans. It was rather enlightening.

#14 I personally think it would do the US a lot of good to encourage African American college graduates to join the Peace Corps to serve in Africa for a year or two.

See the world as it is, not as the Professors and agitators say it is and perhaps do some good while you are there.

#15 "No matter where you were sold or left the port, Senegal or Ghana, no one can be certain where you came from."

That is an interesting personalization of something that happened to a distant relative. If that sort of thinking is universal among African Americans it might explain a lot.

#16 #2 You are so correct. This has got to be fake news. Africans have no desire to allow America Blacks in their countries because they have no respect for them. In Africa how dark you are is what differentiates one group from another. Americans suffer an added liability because their views are so alien there. When in America blacks I have found see the Blacks here as too full of hate and full of race issues. Drugs, crime and family breakdown are no badges of honor. Yes, they have their crime there so why import more.

#17 "I went to Howard, which is a historically black university". Yes, founded by white people for minorities. Not just for Black people. In the main hall lobby you will see the many oil paintings of the founders and as I recall they are all white.

#18 Fake indeed. More Ghanaians in Houston, I'd bet, than Amblacks (is that a word?) in Ghana. However...

Marcus Garvey's shipline

"Nobody remembers old Marcus!"
Has Rodney forgotten to /sarc us,
Ignoring Old Jarvey,
Who, far more than Garvey,
Unlocked Winston's narcous ol' carcass?
