Not sure if I'm in the mood to write about all the politically incorrect things about black people going back to Africa, and having dual citizenship with America. Not sure if being politically incorrect even exists anymore. We are living in a world where discretion and privacy no longer exist and ideology of self is questioned and hammered into tiny bits of contradiction until we settle on 'FUCK THIS SHIT, GOD GOT ME.'
Basically, the "Right of Abode" is a program in Ghana that's been running since 2006 that lets descendants of the slave trade to come back home and let bygones be bygones. Check out the excerpt below about the tours given for Americans considering moving and living in Ghana:
Project Joseph expands the tour from the dungeons and “doors of no return” from which slaves were packed on ships. Tourists will also visit Ghana’s northern region, where prospective slaves were captured, and the central region, where they were traded at huge outdoor markets.
The project’s name is taken from the Old Testament story of Joseph, an Israelite who was sold into Egyptian slavery by his jealous brothers.
“Joseph was sold by his own brethren … but eventually he prospered in the land of his own affliction,” explains tourism official Hagan.
“He became prime minister in the pharaoh’s government. He became very powerful and he went back and helped his own brethren who had cast him away.
“So, we’re saying no matter what happened, the people should feel comfortable to come back to Africa and even help Africa to develop because they are better off than us.”
What are your thoughts on this?
Would you go back and visit the very grounds our ancestors walked?
Who would you take with you?
