Akon suggests blacks move to Africa following Zimmerman's acquittal

Akon took to his Instagram page immediately after the 'not guilty' verdict in the George Zimmerman trial and suggested that African Americans move back to Africa. He wrote:
Every African American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were u will be treated like the royalty you are. You don't deserve this treatment. This is not your country!!
He's Senegalese o, but lives in America and he's asking the real Americans to move to Africa. Hehe!

Akon, live by example, go back to your country first! Just because of an ish in a particular legal hitch doesn't mean the US is overly bad after all, after all he made all his money in the States, no one would have known about him if he wasn't in the States.

The problem is most western blacks love to live in self pity and victimization............the funny thing is that some of these blacks that are born and raised in the west keep complaining about the white man and how there is no jobs yet Africans leave their respective countries and get good Jobs in the west, even if it is a low job like cleaning toilet instead of taking handouts.....we keep blaming the white man what about taking responsibility?...how many black on black killings/crimes have occured? yet no one complains...to me that is the worst ....rappers glorify gangsters, murderers and call our women bitches ..yet we all dance..........until the black race comes together, gets educated and respect each other , no other race would respect us

George Zimmerman is going to be murdered if they don't put him under protective custody. More crimes will emanate from this. US judiciary should thread carefully with this or they will be causing more problem than solving.

Linda you should know that Akon spends a great deal of time in Senegal where most of his family still lives... And there is nothing wrong with what he is suggesting the many Americans who moved back to Africa are for the majority very happy.

Or-Say you "live there" not "leave there" except you are serious about leaving there. On a serious note, I think you should lead by example. Come back to Nigeria Or-Say, where you would be treated like royalty (red-carpet treatment at the airport when you arrive)

The real americans are native americans (the indians) not whites. Most whites living in americans today escape europe due to hunger and persecution. Africa Amercans should not move anywhere, we need our gene pool in america,europe and everywhere in the world, spreading just like british did 400years ago. More unconditional love to one another.

No thought process was used when making this statement. When you study logical thinking then you would understand that the premise does not support the conclusion. It states that if you are not originally from a place you should not be there. So if I am not yoruba, I should not be found anywhere in yoruba territory. Besides, when they all come back to Africa they'll have to face tribalism; is that not a problem as well in Africa?

"Real Americans" are not Caucasians (whites), check your history books. They also immigrated there just like the Negros (blacks) were shipped there. What Linda meant by "real Americans" was a person born in America and as such is American by birth.

Every African American is not African. Many of their ancestors were raped repeatedly and I mean sexually to have children who were still considered black even though their rapists were not. So many of them are mixed and have every reason to be ashamed of the people whose ancestors aided and abated slavery. Go to the slave museum in Liverpool and you will not be the same again

We are also quick to forget to O.J Simson, a black got away with double murder just because the prosecution could not get a conviction. So Akon, if you thinking of moving back to Africa...you are very much welcome but don't forget 1 thing, you are what you are partly cus of your location.

Thirdly, we have many problems including overpopulation. Abeg stay where you are. They won't even move here. A lot of African Americans have the same misconceptions and stereotypical ideas about Africa as white Americans. Next please *hiss*

Abeg abeg abeg, let them stay where they are. There are africans making it (through legal work/business) in America against all odds.

Black Americans should go to school, understand how the system works and use it to their advantage.

The aggression and myopic thinking of the average black american scares the living daylight out of me. Moreover, the tribalism we suffer in Africa even Nigeria has not stopped any tribe from throwing in the towel and demand for handouts. If they move to Africa, I'll move out.

Africa is a big continent so let those who want to go find a place they fit in with, no must be Nigeria or Senagal. Could be Namibia or Botswana.

A few African-Americans have already moved to South Africa and they have done well for themselves. Let the governments offer them opportunities so that they can use their skills to help build up the continent. Let the children of the stolen ones return, and let Africans unite and rise up to where they were created to be.#team Akon
