Second and probably the most important is the question in itself is suspect. I have worked with every race of people on the planet. I have assisted the richest of the rich and the poorest of the poor, and I have never heard anyone say they wanted to live in a place where they would be isolated into themselves and separate from all other people that are of a different color.


Here, educate yourself.

africanamericanhomeland.com...

I'm probably one of the most cultured people you'll find on these forums, I've lived with the folks you've only worked with.

I noted earlier in your thread that your question was clearly in line with the desires and aspirations of Malcolm X. It would be hard to characterise Malcolm X as a black-hating racist.

However, the idea of carving out a nation for black descendants of African slaves from within the USA is an idea that would go nowhere today.

Creating a new nation in Africa however could spark the imagination, but it would require an enormous amount of money to make it happen. So... Imagine if Minister Farrakhan decided that the time had come for black people to leave North America and return to Mother Africa. I can see many, many people following him on that Hejira including some of my younger cousins.

HEre is where I see th efailure in th equestion. Science says our ancestors were all from africa at the base level. ALso there are no different races only ETHNICITIES. Were all part of ONE RACE,and a slong as the government/relgious leaders perpetuate the lie that we are this status quo will never change.

Ah, I was wrong, i take that statement I exaggerated. In quite a few southern states (Mississippi, Alabama, Louisana,) the black population is around 30%, a third of the population. That is more than enough people to have concerns addressed.



Mississippi is at the top of quite a few "not so desirable" lists, so I certainly hope you're not bragging.


Bragging, how did you jump to that?

What better country is there for black Americans? What country offers the same level of freedoms and opportunity for black Americans?


I don't know, probably the best country for a black French, or black German.



Blacks vote to the tune of 95% for Democrats. Look at any major city. You will see black police chiefs, black school boards, black city councils, black mayors, black attorney generals, majority black neighborhoods... yet where is this supposed black utopia? In these same cities you see 3/4's of the kids born out of wedlock, failing schools, rampant crime and violence, etc.


Huh, i never mentioned anything about a black utopia or anything like that, your talking points are quite... familiar. You had rant about liberals and I said "Liberals... what?! That is all kinds of wrong". As for your paragraph, there a quite a few major cities with low black populations. And some with high black populations.

This image is extreamly offencive, and just what the OP is talking about seperation based on race, pretty disgusting.

Racists are disgusting and dont deserve to live amongst thier fellow human beings, due to thier divisive us vs them mentality. I reccomend rounding them up and putting the racists in rehabilitation camps until they understand all people are the same. The OP sounds to me like some badly vieled racism wanting to seperate people based on thier race so very KKKish for ATS.
The thread which is clearly an offencive race baiting thread yet mods dont feel the need to remove it. Since when was it ok to ask people if they would like to be segregated and seperated into thier own communities with people with matching skin. WTF? Really ATS?

Why are you targeting African Americans.... This thread would make a lot more sense if it was targeted towards Mexicans. But the fact it got so many stars and is an actual "discussion" is a bit irritating.

Seems like this was pushed years ago - Republic of New Africa, IIRC.

That is so NOT what I am talking about. You're emotion grabbing picture is referencing forced separation, I am talking voluntary separation... you know... like we already have right now.

Seperation based on race is just racism and everything the KKK stands for. As I mentioned its disgusting and doesnt belong on ATS nor anywhere on earth for that matter. Racism is sickening, always has been always will be.

Its never been ok and never will be.

Are you an educated person? Do you have any idea that all people are the same? Are you interested in rehabilitation for your troubled confused mind?

So you're ready to close all black colleges?

And what does my education have to do with this? Which course would you recommend to 'fix' me?

Im ready to tell you racism is not ok, start with the man in the mirror, move on from there.

Racists dont deserve to be around sane people.

So offering up 13% of the country as reparations for slavery is racist now?

Yes it is, KKK racist ideology not even vieled racism. To seperate people in anything based on race is the very definition of racism. Its pretty shamefull and disgusting that we have a world where people think races are different and attempt to preach seperation of races. . .

I'm not familiar with KKK ideology. As a few posters have pointed out now, this is actually Malcom X ideology... if anything.

Um, no its not.

Racism-
the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

I'm curious as to whether or not this is even something African Americans would be interested in.

You're own little piece of America. You're own country to run however you see fit.

Hasn't worked out well for the Indians, but hey whatever rocks your boat.



Not some BS Israel deal where something like 15% of the population got 50% of the land, but a fair 13%.


50% of what land? The Palestine Arabs got Jordan which is huge and full of oil, The Jews got a thin strip of holy dirt, remove the holy and they just got dirt...hehe
