  1. Farntella Graham says:

    why are their asses there after what they did to us? what is wrong with africans?

  2. Gina Rogers says:

    This article begs the question: is the content and it's peoples as accommodating for Aftican-Americans?

  3. Amira Izedine says:

    no surprise at all. africa it is. and will always be. the only ones who don't see africa for what it is, is africans themselves. everyone else sees our worth.

  4. Farntella Graham says:

    yes they are.

  5. Thierno Bah says:

    the buildings they are constructing won't leave to Europe with them and those buildings belong to Angolans. So why see this in a negative way? When there is demand for immigrants you let them in. This is how the US developed. You just need to ensure that the interests of the country are preserved.
    If black Americans want to immigrate there and fill in jobs, I am sure they can do it. Angola is full of west Africans. Many have made fortunes there and build businesses and mansions in their home countries.

  6. Farntell Graham They are going to Afuraka for the same reason, they went there the first, time, looking for Afurakan people to hold as slaves, and they are still there, as we see more coming in.

  7. Abraham Madu says:

    Holographic disclosure #11 is what this reminds me.

  8. Nzingha Shabaka But it's different , we need their expertise and to learn many things from them.If we do this then we will manage to be masters of our own destinies.

  9. African Americans should engage more in Africa this is your Home too. There are so many opportunities,in almost all sectors of the economy.There is a growing Film industry which Many Black Directors can exploit , develop and even sell back to America. Music Medicine education etc Africans will be more willing to work with fellow Africans than anyone else.

  10. Chris Martin says:

    These Europeans don't need to come to Africa. Matter of fact, the leaders of these African countries should bar Europeans from coming to countries in Africa. The same way blacks are treated in Europe, then Europeans should be treated in African countries. They don't want blacks in Europe, then Africans should not want Europeans in Africa. Europeans go back to Europe.
    That's why Africa is called the dark continent. Stay out of Africa White people

  11. Immanuel Hozem Hekalod says:

    I hope so-called Liberian Americans or, better still, Liberian government officials who consider the western world, especially USA, to be a save haven for their wealth would realize this and start to live and invest in Liberia not just for the economic benefits but for their own dignity and assurance of a decent and quality life without any prejudice. I don't respect many government officials in Liberia at all mainly for this negative posture.

    Like the Liberian scenario, Lebanese and Indian businessmen entirely control our economy, thus virtually controlling our government in many influential ways.

    If Europeans and others can succeed on this promising African continent with the same education, why not African-descends living abroad.

  12. Theirno Bah, point well taken.

  13. Farntella Graham says:

    Augustine Mukasa this is why we go to their schools and universities in their countries. we are suppose to go back to africa and put the theory to practice.
    why are they being paid what they would make in europe? they owe us. we owe them nothing.

  14. Farntella Graham says:

    Nzingha Shabaka you have my sincere condolences.

  15. Valid argument, but you well know there is a difference between what you learn in the lecture room and what you get through experience. Some things are not taught we just copy them i.e work ethic, organisation efficiency. I'm not advocating for dependency we should only bring in what and who we need, I certainly object to an expat opening a retail shop or anything that should be or could be done by locals

  16. Farntella Graham says:

    we will be forced to go back home and africa will be forced to halt the latest neo-colonial land grab. we need brothers like Idi Amin to deal with them.

  17. Juan Ortiz says:

    Farntella Graham Don,t worry Africa will never leave them reign,we are not like native Americans,if Africa still belong to black owners is for something,yes is truth the manipulated the politics,economies but we still there,the only people they are welcome is black Americans like you and black from another nations the ones the all ways respect and the can help us..

  18. Moses Reyes says:

    Isn't it something, that Portugal was big into the African slave trade,
    now are back in Africa rebuilding it?

  19. no the united states was built from enslaved Africans who worked the land for 400 years while, they imported immigrants to slow the decline of Africans who built America, every big business in America got their money of of free labor starting with cotton and so on, and everybody else who didn't own slaves benefited from white privilege they will turn Africa in their waste land and make you think you don't belong their as well.

  20. Augustine Mukasa they learned everything from us, we don't need their expertise black enslaved Africans the ones who invented everything, in the the us refrigerators and so on and couldn't even get patents for half of the things. blacks built the white house we don't need them for nothing they need us.

  21. Thierno Bah says:

    Erykah Wright I do not undermine the labor of slaves in building the US but multiple companies such as Carnegie steel, Standard Oil, the Railroads, Ford, etc… used labor from immigrants. Some scientists and technicians from Europe came to the US and worked for some of these companies. The strikes on these industries were called by white workers to condemn their labor conditions. Slavery is profitable for a agricultural society as it was the case in the South but with an industrialized one, the best way to profit is to compensate workers.

  22. Ronaldo Chambers says:

    Europeans have somehow being managing to find job opportunities and good living in Africa since the days of colonialism that is why there are so many white Zimbabweans and south Africans all at the expense of the local Africans but the video doesn't show you that correct me if i'm wrong but a lot of those people worked for building companies, the video said Angola's economic boom came from crude oil and diamonds this is nothing new

  23. Nicol L Lami says:

    Augustine Mukasa but the white man has put this hatred between us that we turn to hate ourselves. Blacks in America have been lied to and they think so badly of africa. while the white man is here benefiting. I know the pains of slavery is still there. But please come home and build. the greedy white man is taking away everything!

  24. Paul Cooley says:

    Nicol L Lami I am one of those blacks in America you refer to. I was taught by my parents that every evil representation the media shows of Afrika was a gaddamn lie just like the propaganda shown of black americans to the world. As a kid there were so many wealthy west africans in my neighborhood that I never got the chance to believe any falsehoods from the white media because it just wasn't my reality. I love everything about my homeland and my people. A lot of us do plan on coming to the continent never to return to the US. Its just a short matter of time before we reunite and once we do, it will change the world…

  25. Nicol L Lami Great advice. Those who want to come, will find a way home. Thank you.

  26. Paul Cooley Your statement carrys much power. Mama Afuraka, our home, oh how I love her.

  27. Farntella Graham Not a damn thing.

  28. It is like a shock and awe feeling, we wake up one day and see the picture. These devils have been brain washing us, to hate our homeland, and our people. The schools, and the movie industry, plays major roles, and doing this.

  29. It is an irony all right ; Portugal the first European country to engage in the western slave trade; the last to be kicked out of it's African colonial empire. But the difference today is Angola is control by it's African people; so why not use their skills to developed the country as long as the Angolan people benefit from it and I mean all the Angolan people an d not just an elite.

  30. I travel to Africa all of the time and the problem is that African Americans refuse to do anything for Africa. It seems that we can't get our shit together in the US, so how will you be able to do a damn thing in Africa. Stop waiting for shit to happen and get off of your ass and save Africa from being colonization.

  31. Observe, Whites with MONEY flee to Africa. If you are Black and have money to invest, in Africa, please do so. Period.

  32. first of all ,business has to do with capitol ,supply and demands. the question is ,who are your customers /consumers for whatever you're supplying?. if I'm going to be a supplier then if must have adequate demands for my products and it means people with money. in Africa or most African nations most people live below the poverty level that they can hardly afford basic food items so, the only possible alternative is to reach the demands of those able to consume your supplies. we often talk a great deal about Europeans being oppressive to other people of color but, should we look at our own kind we would find damning evidence that says our own colored folk are often more oppressive to us and they could care less about our health and well being just as long as they're gaining the lion's share of the pie. with this being said, when substantiated , you will find that Europeans ,middle eastern north americans are more in demands since they're the ones that set higher standards of living for their citizens whilst in other nations the situation is often 100%

  34. Joe Brilly says:

    And uhh what is the quality of life for the local Angolans?

    A lot worse.

    So instead of training and hiring Angolans to do the jobs and creating Angolan companies to make profits off the boom, they brought in Portuguese companies and Portuguese labor to get the top jobs. And to add insult to injury, those companies then work with European and Asian companies for anything other kind of work that needs to be done. Which means that foreigners run the economy of Angola. And what kind of jobs do the local Angolans get? The bottom of the barrel menial labor jobs making the least money.

    And this is IN AFRICA and you don't even get a fair share of your own economy.

    Now show me where Europeans are making it easy for Africans to get full access to their economy. Show me where Asia is giving Africans full access to their economy. You can't. So these negroes who run Angola are as much traitors as any other since they can't see fit to make sure that after hundreds of years of colonization, they 1) get the land back with deed and title 2) get legal ownership of the natural resources (not "owned" by the Government) 3) Get seed money to start businesses and industries 4) Get free or cheap education up to University to compete in the current job market . No. That is to good for the Africans who have suffered from oppression and war for hundreds of years. Just let the foreigners come in and get all the benefits.

    Kind of sounds like the good old USA which is now importing illegals and other foreigners to replace black folks. But that patter is part of the global system of white domination and those other ethnic groups are part of that system and as long as they can get a slice of the pie they will happily step over any number of black corpses to get a piece.

  35. If you are always looking to exploit or con, yeah, you will always find a suitable market or create one. The vultures and scavengers will always hover about Africa. I'd love to go to Africa, but I want to help her, not suck her dry.

  36. Thierno Bah Blacks on the continent haven't seen the 'west's' dirty drawers up close and personal like US in the western hemisphere have. We have seen them when they have taken the facade of 'civilization' off. It ain't pretty. They are only in AFrica to exploit her and suck all of her resources and leave you dead or wishing you were. This is how this sociopath operates ALL OVER the globe. Whites have acted as scavengers since their beginnings, do not be fooled by empty platitudes. I say to ALL black people in the diaspora, the goal will always be to exploit or manipulate. They will never view your interests as their interests. Theirs will always have primacy and afterwards they will discard you like a used kotex. This is historical truth.

  37. They ain't building it, they are exploiting it, as usual. And I bet those 'europeans' back home would be complaining about all the 'african' immigrants.

  38. It didn't sound like these particular whites have any money. It just sounds like regular whites who cannot find jobs at home.

  39. That would be all well and good if that 'higher standard of living' you speak about didn't come at the expense of humanity & the ecosystem. It's a system based on human misery, subjugation and control of resources based on continual & manufactured conflict, proxy wars and oppression. And a system of global apartheid I might add. If this is the preferred and accepted way of attaining this 'higher standard of living', is it REALLY worth it? And also can Mother Earth AFFORD it? If she continues to be raped, ravaged and poisoned, will your higher standard of living really matter?

  40. Ife Amor says:

    Erykah Wright too true Eryka. The immigrants brought into the US was largely after slavery in an effort to curb the healthy growing population of free Africans in the United States. The immigration that occured during slavery was relatively northward of the Mason Dixon line during the time the North had banned slavery and the same goal had been established. Afrikans in Afrika must become cautious, you let them in before and they took your young and your strong into slavery. Be wise Afrika if you are to play the game of the game maker.

  41. Chris I understand where you are coming from but having lived in East Africa I can tell you from experience that most Africans would rather have Europeans in a business partnership than other Africans or African American.In general most not all have a slave mentality and have not unfortunately reached a means of controlling the economics of their country.They need to put Malcom X;s mindset in place in their society maybe in another 30 -50 years they will reach that point..real talk,

  44. Yes you are right they see Africa as a resource to help their economy survive the same as their participation in the slave trade in the past.

  45. It is not about getting away it is about controlling the countrys natural resources and providing a good standard of living for the citizens and not selling out the country.

  46. Farntella Graham most African leaders are sellouts the progressive ones are overthrown and puppet goverments are set up in their place. That is the way it is until the mentally dead rise into more knowledge.
