Skip to comments.African Rap Star with $2.5 Mil Mansion Tells African-Americans to Move Back to Africa

Apparently its not even April Fools Day.
Musician Akon has called for black Americans to start making an exodus back to Africa following the verdict in the Zimmerman trial. Akon, who was born in the United States but primarily grew up in Senegal, declared that black Americans dont deserve this treatment after the jurys decision.
On his Instagram account, Akon wrote, Every African-American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were [sic] you will be treated like the royalty you are, saying that the U.S. is not your country.
Oddly enough large numbers of African immigrants are moving to the United States. Maybe theyre sick and tired of being treated like royalty.
Maybe that explains why Akon has a 2.5 million dollar mansion in Atlanta, instead of taking all his money back to West Senegal, where they would probably make him king of something.
Meanwhile here are some photos of Akons miserable home in the United States where he lives in daily oppression and degradation under the reign of his butler.
This just looks like a living hell. I cant understand why he doesnt move back to West Senegal.
A man of my own heart ... although I am financially challenged, I would donate toward plane fare.
I disagree with his recommendation. But as long as he’s offered it, where do we send our nominations for which “black” men to “send back to Africa” (as he so nicely put his idea).
There are a couple obvious choices to put at the head of the expatriation queue
The Africans would be trying to ship back Af-Americans the first minute they got here
Yes, please. Move back to chasing cheetahs for lunch instead of drive thru’s in America. That’ll teach whitey.
Everyone knows that the entire continent of Africa is a virtual paradise. Africa is a land of plenty where all of the governments give out free iPhones, fast food grows on vines, and where rap music and Hip Hop are recognized for the true art forms that they are. /sarc
I’ve read about blacks who decided to retire in Liberia. It’s not as much fun as they thought it would be, even with retirement income and an expatriate community to socialize with.
Hint & Fact: Most sub-Sahara Africans eagerly want to immigrate to America!!! They yearn for freedom, liberty, education and opportunity!!! Most of them have a completely different cultural background then native Black Americans. They are, religious, family centered, hard working dependable contibutors to society. And....they do not come here with their hands stuck out for “Obama” freebies!!! They want to make their own way in American society. Caribbean and Haitian Blacks generally fall into the same category as African immigrants!!!
Bye bye. Enjoy the heat, flies, famine, disease, and frequent revolutions/coups.
If all the Af-Am’s move back to Africa, who is going to buy his lousy music to keep him in that American palace?
Sounds like a smart enough guy. No argument here.
oh, poor little Trayvon. boo effing hoo.
A couple of years ago this rapper was accused of taking advantage of a 12 year old...maybe she was 13.
Anyway I vaguely remember the scandal. Happened in Barbados maybe or some other island nation.
ok I found the story.
Sure, and how about all the German Americans move back to Germany, the Polish Americans back to Poland, the Swedish Americans back to Sweden and the Irish Americans back to Ireland.
Yes many blacks and hispanics and Asians are liberals, but many are conservatives, but it's hard to have a conversation about personal liberty and economic freedom when they're convinced we despise them. This thread is hardly unique, but it makes a pretty compelling point.
if they feel that way i encourage it. renounce the citizenship and go.
blacks seem to be racists. Conservatism is colorblind. The left owns the media and schools and tell them lies
the remarks are made at the liberals who are expressing that feeling. if they feel that way they should do what they want. if they think this is a terrible place i won’t demand they stay.
I see people merely stating a fact that if America is so damn bad, take this obviously rich mans advice and LEAVE!
Are we all racists for telling the truth?
So you think I’m either the author or the rap star who suggested this? Hint: He’s black, so I don’t think his suggestion qualifies as racist, no matter what you think of it. And I could give a **** what “minorities” think about the Republican Party. This isn’t a Republican website, it’s a conservative one. Not the same thing, as we’ve been reminded over and over again since the 1850’s.
Please don’t leave. It would hurt our feelings so much.../s
National debt paid off in 5 years with a big percentage of the takers gone, communities fixed up an dunghettofied, not having to listent to racist this, racist that, crime way down, especially violent crimes, robbery, theft, buglary, home invasions, thug USA gone, etc...say when do you want to move? I’ll be happy to help...: )
Apparently he does not like our judicial system, but as a nice gesture he could lead the way and start an exodus.
95% - number of blacks who voted for obama.
Tell me again who is racist. Tribe beats all unless they are really conservative and that number is shockingly small.
They also yearn for a place where they can immerse themselves in the music of rap at any time they wish.
They come to be closer to Akon, who does not live in Africa./sarc
I'll take Ireland. TYVM!
I love green beer and leprechaun pots of gold.
Erin go bragh, baby!
One can only hope....
We’re awaiting your opus....
Anyone who thinks they would be better off someplace else is not only free to leave, they are encouraged to do so. See ya, no tears.
Many moons ago there were a bunch of African-Americans who went back to Africa in search of their “roots”. They were dismayed and shocked that the locals did not welcome them home, but rather looked down on them as interfering Americans.
When they pulled the African-American card, the locals bluntly told them that they knew nothing about Africa or its history or to the country they’d come. They were Americans and they should butt out and go home because they were not wanted in this part of Africa.
My God, what a living hell this poor guy must undergo each day, suffering under Whitey’s oppression. I’m sure he would thrive so much more, were he to remove himself from this hideous existence and repatriate to Mother Africa.
IIRC, that happened to a few of the “legacy” black panthers. That experience shut a lot of them up.
Here’s my $1 toward fuel for the ships; MOVE BACK TO YOUR AFRICAN HELLHOLE, MORONS!
American blacks won’t emigrate to Africa even if offered full expenses paid to get there. Especially those of the Jesse Hijackson and Al Sharptongue mentalities.
“A man of my own heart ... although I am financially challenged, I would donate toward plane fare.”
Me, too if he takes Sharpton, Jackson, Holder and Hussein with him
Doc, I am so sick of their nonsense, I am seriously prepared to put my children in even more debt to facilitate the “Akon Repatriation Act”.
Our decendants will thank us.
I mean, who the hell wants to grow up in a nation where 12 percent of the population are perpetually angry about anything and everything.
Nah, pass. See, I guess that I’m German-American, and like many others, I am happy to be here, and don’t blame everybody else for my problems.
Also like many others, one of my ancestors died in the conflict that gave the “perpetually angry and ungrateful” their freedom.
I feel that any debt that was owed them is paid in blood.
The civil war in Liberia was fought between “native” Africans and Liberians descended from slaves returning from America. The former were suppressed, and educated only enough to serve the “American” Liberians; they picked up guns and ran them out (many are now here in the US as war refugees).
Nothing free here move on
I remember that incident. The American Blacks were discriminated against for their mixed-race appearance and called “kanaka”, which I read meant “cotton-picker”.
“.. Akon wrote, Every African-American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were [sic] you will be treated like the royalty you are, saying that the U.S. is not your country. .
I’m in total agreement with the guy. Since the odumbo’s THINK they are royalty, the get to be first on the boat.
So much to do and sooooooo little time.
We’ll even send a leader with you that is a true African to help teach you the ways and he has a ready made staff to follow. When you get there you can build him and his cronies a palace and every thing will be rainbows, unicorns, and skittles for all. Sounds like paradise.
In just about all African countries if you want to succeed, you have to do something. And if an ambitious American went there they could rule. Except the incumbents would kill them.
So, in short—hard working and ambitious—you get shot. Lazy and slothful—you will starve. Better to stay where you are.
It was following the 1977 miniseries “Roots” that many American blacks went to Africa in search of their own. The aftermath went underreported as native Africans treated them with contempt (”you are the descendants of slaves!”) or scorn (”all of you so-called blacks have mixed-race ancestry!”).
Alex Haley, the author of “Roots”, journeyed to the ancestral land of the fictitious Kunta Kinte, but had little to say about it afterwards.
The problem is there is little or nothing that conservative Republicans can to convince "minorities" we don't despise them. Not even turning liberal would work. Because many minorities don't like white people of whatever political persuasion. Do you really think there is anything conservatives could do or say that would make people like the idiot in this article like us?
And there is nothing wrong in making fun of or actively disliking anti-American malcontents of any ethnicity. We make the same comments about white libs who threaten to leave. If they want to leave the country permanently, we're more than glad to see them go.
Thank you for saying what needs to be said. I see it as a real problem on this board. Post after post of one line slams against a race as a whole are regularly seen, increasingly.
The current climate presents great provocation and too many of us are taking the bait.
It is past time for thoughtful FReepers of good will to push back.
Devoutly to be wished ...
Just to throw in a curve ball Akon is also Muslim.
I predict that any that do will come back very much wiser.
