Ghana is fast becoming a mecca for black Americans who are looking for lucrative opportunities in a new environment.
the article should really be called “how you can find yourself in an exotic African country that’s not too African”
it reads like Ghana is the special place that’s managed to advance unlike those backwards African countries. i mean it’ll be annoying to not have constant water and electricity all the time like in the Great West but the sure the locals are lovely.
African-Americans will enjoy making a life in a place that will make them feel connected and celebrated in a way that they probably don’t fully enjoy in the U.S. as “minorities.” Local chiefs are often more than willing to grant prized land and other resources to budding entrepreneurs interested in real estate development, or other commercial ventures. This could also lead to a lucrative life in farming – or “agribusiness” – for those interested in a totally new, yet viable way of making a living.
right because, farming is totally cool and exotic way of living. what do people think of the article?
I’ve read a lot of things about this, and watched some videos on some African Americans experiences in Ghana and I have mixed feelings about what I’ve seen or read. I’m not in favour of anyone, whether they are a slave descendant or first gen moving home because they think it will be easy to get rich, or in order to “save the local people”.
Reminds me of that documentary…
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
- White people: We don't want any black people in our clubs, bars, parties, restaurants, schools, government, banks, neighborhoods, or offices
- Black people: Well fuck ya'll then. We can go start our own shit that's just for black people and nobody else.
- White people: ......
- White people: Wow, excluding people based solely on their skin color? That's really racist and I am personally offended. How would you feel if we did that to you?
