Trayvon Martin Killing: Akon Tells Black People to Move to Africa
International Business Times ^ | July 16, 2013 | Toyin Owoseje

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.

“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?

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.

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.

We tried that once before. Liberia instantly became an economic first world superpower. Oh wait........

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.

Maybe we should start a charity where people can sponsor families that want to make the trip. I will gladly pony up the moving expense for one family on condition that US citizenship is renounced and no one in the family ever return. I’m sure their lives will be so much easier in Africa though that they’d never regret leaving.

"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."

Spoken like someone who doesn't know squat about the continent. Any particular country you recommend, Akon? Every Afro-American that accompanied me there has openly expressed gratitude for having been born an American. Think life is tough here? Try walking the streets of Kinshasa after dark. It was the inspiration for "Night of the Living Dead."

It just gets crazier and crazier. Black africans are killing other black africans faster than black americans can kill other black americans.
Unless we add in the abortion of black american babies into the mix.
If we add abortions in I think black americans win hands down. And only libs can call that a win.

Oh please, oh please let this be a plea that gains traction and starts a massive movement of Ghetto and Marxist blacks out of this country, to ‘greener’ pastures for them and their kind.

But something tells me that the idea of taking a risk to build a new life for themselves is as foreign and alien as the idea of working for themselves instead of sponging off the productive is.

Wasn’t this called “Liberia” — founded by freed slaves returned to Africa?

He needs to Google “Liberia”.

Ex-slaves tried this in the 1800’s. Those who did not die of malaria or other diseases declared themselves the New Elite and began oppressing the local black population. Not unlike all those EEEEEEEEVIL RAAAAAAACIST whites back home. This went on until an explosive and bloody backlash/civil war in the 70’s and 80’s.

Not wanting to repeat the experience, the local Africans will likely kill any such settlers showing up over there.

The American Colonization Society. Been around since 1820.

Specifically to help repatriate ex-slaves and descendants to Liberia.

I’d settle for them just moving to blue states. I’d love to see all welfare handouts from the Fed eliminated allowing the states to handle it as they please. The only “handout” from the Fed would be moving assistance for those that can’t survive under the new restrictions imposed by red states to help the leeches relocate to blue states. This would solve so many problems in the long run and eventually force an accounting with reality for the blue states.
