Unlike Silicon Valley, businesses in Ghana are very interested in adding Blacks who live in America with interest and talent in technology. Companies like Blogging Ghana have built a strong social media global platform, making it a viable employment landing place. These firms are interested in changing an ever-emerging industry, meaning the opportunity is there to be a part of something bold and aggressive. Also, English is the official language in Ghana, so there are prime opportunities for teachers.

    I'm just waiting to see how the white supremacists are going to troll this one.

  2. It sounds GREAT– as long as America don't impose any type of embargos, or trading sanctions on Ghana there's a possibility that it will be a thriving community in short time. Also, I notice a strong population of Ghaniese Brothers and Sisters in the U.S. , and they can be more apart of the equation of importing African Americans to Ghana. I see to many are trying to fit in America, instead of BUILDING GHANA.

  3. "The Ghanaian government has offered an official apology for Ghana’s role in the transatlantic slave trade and there is reportedly free land set aside for individuals from the Diaspora."

    This legit?

    brother, if every Black person left the U.S., the white supremacist would have to make some more…how can one be "supreme" without somebody to imagine themselves better than? the people with the most fragile self-esteem are the ones who have to ball and chain their competitor FIRST before they race one another…pay 'um no mind!

    Ronnie Brown White supremacy is not a U.S. phenomenon, it is a global system.

    To my Ghanian brethren in all due respect..Why? Why would you make English official language? Second, it would be intelligent to start investing in your military, and advise the same to African neighbors. Don't think for a second the white man is just going to let you "do business".

  7. Steve Rude says:

    I doubt there'll be anything left for the diaspora as high profile koreans and chinese are buying shit up at an alarming rate.. Ghana sells out again.

  8. What's interesting is that the unemployment rate is 3% to 5% in Ghana, depending on who you source. The unemployment rate for black men in the USA is 11% to 12%. Something to think about black men. I know there are many of you that have degrees, and there seems to be plenty of teaching jobs that will place you in middle class income bracket.

    However, in my experience traveling and doing business in a number of African countries, if you need a job, then Africa is probably not right for you. Entrepreneurs with cash to invest and get something started is what is really being said in all of these "invitations" to come home. Believe me, there are plenty of African born smart people with western degrees, what Africa needs is smart, visionary people with cash to invest in infrastructure building.
