#1 Wish them all the luck in the world.

#2 Good for them.
But those countries won't turn around until their own talented and well-trained elites stop ditching the home country for the US and Europe and start fixing their own countries.

Paul Theroux nails it here

#3 Once they are discovered to be wealthy Americans (of mixed blood and no tribal connection), it may not go well for them. The Liberian experiment might be a good example.

#4 The "Back to Africa" movement was a movement founded by Marcus Garvey in the early 20th century which aimed to help all African-Americans move back to Africa. Garvey originally founded the movement in Jamaica, but eventually moved to New York to direct it.

#5 Wish the best for them, but knowing Africa the whole experience for many will go pear shaped.

#6 Besoeker, what they need is all returnees to go to a single African nation, when there are enough they can form their own, wealthy, well-connected, tribe.

#8 “There is a comfort that comes with being around people who look like you, and seeing [people like you] on billboards and in government positions,”

Easier to move to Detroit. You get all that PLUS some great prices on housing and land.

#9 Why black Americans are moving to Africa

To discover that they are African-Americans?

Wait till they find out they'll be the white folk.

#11 Why black Americans are moving to Africa

The "Wakanda Is Real" e-mail scam worked?

#13 Better prospects than the 'Wakanda Project'. Africa shall need a good movie industry too. Racists like Jordan Peele and white apologists of hollywood can maybe follow ?

#14 If earlier efforts along this line are any indication, Besoeker nailed it. They will be from the wrong tribe.

It is perhaps the flip side of the strong family ties you find there (and which no doubt forms part of the attraction)--low interest in non-family.

#15 Well, since they don't like it here, they're certainly free to leave.

I suspect they won't like it there, either. First coup, they're going to miss American elections.

#16 \ Estwatini, formerly Swaziland. Appears to be working.

Don't knock it - double India's/Pakistan's per capita income. :-) It's probably no different from the per capita income of South Central, once you knock out the welfare state bennies.
