Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin Killing: Akon Tells Black People to Move to Africa
Posted on 07/16/2013 2:16:47 PM PDT by NCjim
R&B star Akon has suggested that African-Americans living in the US should move back to Africa following George Zimmerman's acquittal in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
The Smack That hitmaker, who was born in Senegal, west Africa, took to his Instagram page after the trial in which Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter by a jury of six women in Sanford, Florida.
Posting a screen grab of the live broadcast of the trial he wrote: "Every African-American in the United States needs to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were you will be treated like the royalty you are.
"You don't deserve this treatment. This is not your country."
The 40-year-old star is among a number of stars who reacted to the acquittal of the teenager's killer after jurors accepted his claim that he shot Trayvon in self-defence.
Singer Kelly Rowland shed tears for the teenager and his family, Lil' Kim cried out for justice, and Russell Simmons called for a change to gun laws.
Beyoncé took a moment to honour Martin during her Mrs Carter Show World Tour concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennesse. Her concert started about 30 minutes after news of the Zimmerman verdict began to circulate.
Before singing the chorus of I Will Always Love You, she told the crowd : "I'd like to have a moment of silence for Trayvon."
Protests have been held across country. Trayvon's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, were "heartbroken and devastated," their lawyer said.
Where’s that “That is racist’ gif
Oh No! Don’t take all of your knowledge with you!
May everyone who feels aggrieved about *anything* go *now*.
Go ahead Akon, your wealth will be stolen by African dictators.
Is he accepting donations?
What???? There is no free stuff in AFRICA, this guy is nuts. who is crazy enough to go there?
Yes! Will they take their arab owners with them?
Stand Your Ground vs Rwandan Genocide? What to do? What to do?
Remember when you get asked “Hutu or Tutsi” you better guess right.
I’ll stay, I don’t know anyone in Africa!
Move to Africa, where the probability of your being killed is increased by a factor of ten.
Can Stevie Wonder and the Rap/Hip-Hop industry do a telethon?
“You don’t deserve this treatment. This is not your country.”
Works for me, I think this is a social experiment that should be pursued vigorously. We obviously need lots of empirical evidence to prove this idea is a worthwhile one, I propose a testing period of fifty years.
What say you?
Just for the record, my guess is those who are protesting instead of being at work receive an EBT card the first of every month.
Africa doesn't hand out EBT cards to pay for protests.
The ghetto culture that he is reaching out to would starve to death after the first missed EBT payment - 0 work ethic, and aside from theft, violence, and scamming have 0 practical skills. If they brought their entitlement mindset to Africa, or thievery, they would be quickly be snuffed out by some warlord.
But, by all means I'll help you pack.

And remember folks, EBT cards will not be good in Africa and they will not be reloaded subsequent to your departure. But at least you won’t have a bunch of white people around to worry about.
Far be it for me to tell Americans where they can relocate to, there is no fence to keep you in............hell we don`t even have a fence to keep people out !
There is plenty of free stuff, but only for people who win it in battle.
