African-Americans are returning to the lands of their ancestors as life becomes precarious and dangerous in the USA.

Accra, Ghana - They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return.

A new wave of African Americans is escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. From Senegal and Ghana to The Gambia, communities are emerging in defiance of conventional wisdom that Africa is a continent everyone is trying to leave.

It is estimated that between 3,000 and 5,000 African Americans live in Accra, the Ghanaian capital. They are teachers in small towns in the west or entrepreneurs in the capital and say they that even though living in Ghana is not always easy, they feel free and safe.

Take Muhammida el-Muhajir, a digital marketer from New York City, who left her job to move to Accra.

She says she moved, because despite her education and experience, she was always made to feel like a second-class citizen. Moving was an opportunity to fulfil her potential and avoid being targeted by racial violence.

She told Al Jazeera her story:

On life as a second-class citizen in the US...

"I grew up in Philadelphia and then New York. I went to Howard, which is a historically black university. I tell people that Ghana is like Howard in real life. It felt like a microcosm of the world. At university, they tell us the world isn't black, but there are places where this is the real world. Howard prepares you for a world where black people are in charge, which is a completely different experience compared to people who have gone to predominantly white universities."

I can't say what's happening in America today is any worse than what's been happening at any other time.

Muhammida el-Muhajir

On her first trip to Africa...

"The first country I went to was Kenya. I was 15 and travelled with a group of kids. I was one of two black kids. I saw early that I could fit in and wasn't an outsider. Suddenly it switched, I came from America where I was an outsider, but in Africa, I no longer felt like that. I did graduate school in Ghana in 2003 and went back to New York and then moved to Ghana in 2014.

"I have no connection to Ghana. Some people in my family did tests, and we found ties to Senegal and The Gambia, but I don't think you can ever figure it out. No matter where you were sold or left the port, Senegal or Ghana, no one can be certain where you came from."

No matter where you were sold or left the port, Senegal or Ghana, no one can be certain where you came from.

Muhammida el-Muhajir

On leaving New York for Accra...

"Even when you live in a place like New York as a black person, you're always an outsider.

"You hear stories about the richest black people, like Oprah Winfrey, getting shut out of a store or Jay-Z not being allowed to buy [an apartment]. Those things happen. It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity, you're a second-class citizen. This was the biggest issue for me.

"In America, you're always trying to prove yourself; I don't need to prove myself to anyone else's standards here. I'm a champion, I ran track and went to university, and I like to win, so I refuse to be in a situation where I will never win."

You might not have electricity, but you won't get killed by the police either.

Muhammida el-Muhajir

On moving to Ghana...

"There are amenities that I am used to at home in New York - like parties, open bars and fashion, so when I realised I could do the same things in Africa as I could back in the US, I was sold. There is also a big street art festival here, and that was the difference from when I came [as a student]. I saw the things that I love at home here, so I decided that now is the time."

On Ghanaian reactions...

"When Ghanaians find out that I live here, they're usually confused about why I chose to live here as an American. There is definitely certain access and privilege being American here, but it's great to finally cash in on that because it doesn't mean anything in America.

"There are also plenty of privileged Ghanaians; if you take away race there's a class system."

On the 'Blaxit' documentary...

"In my documentary, I chose five people that I've met since I've been here and every one of them went to a black college in the US. It's something that prepares you mentally to realise you aren't a second-class citizen. Something like that can help you make a transition to live in Africa.

"I made Blaxit because of this wave of African-Americans moving to Africa. This trend started to happen around independence of African countries, but the new wave [comprises] people who come to places like this. This new group has certain access in America and comes here to have that lifestyle in Africa.

"Unbeknown to us, we're living out the vision that [Ghanaian politician and revolutionary] Kwame Nkrumah set out for us, of this country being the gateway to Africa for the black diaspora.

"I don't want people to think that Africa is this magic utopia where all your issues will go away. It's just that some of the things you might face in America as a black person - you won't have to suffer with those things here.

"You might not have electricity, but you won't get killed by the police either.

"I want people to understand that they have options and alternatives. Most black people in America don't know that these options exist; they think they have to suffer because there's nowhere else to go. But no, there are other places."

On the prospect of more African-Americans moving...

"I think more will come when they begin to see it as a viable alternative. But it's not easy and it's not cheap. I can't say what's happening in America today is any worse than what's been happening at any other time. I think now is the time that people are starting to see they can live somewhere else."

For Americans who have permanently left the USA, US citizenship is often much more a liability than a benefit. FATCA and taxation being the reasons. FATCA is the fed gov's financial stalking legislation that penalizes foreign banks if they fail to report account holdings of US citizens. Those banks sometimes respond by simply closing accounts of American expats, making them into second rate citizens in the places they live.

(Hondo: "I'm putting it in humor.")

And "humorous" is exactly what it is. Or irony.

A spoon-fed Affirmative-Action black Moo-slem who has been gifted all the blessings of Euro-White-Christian culture and society JUST BECAUSE SHE'S BLACK/FEMALE/MINORITY. And here she is whining about being prevented from "winning"?? The Soviet Media can't wait to report on propagandist BS like this from our good friends at Mooslem-owned and operated Al Jazeera.

Nice Alternative Universe the Left dwells in, ain't it?

And how about THIS one:

Muhammida el-Muhajir: "No matter where you were sold or left the port, Senegal or Ghana, no one can be certain where you came from."

Missing the slight irony again, isn't she? Totally oblivious or in-denial that African-AFRICANS "sold" her ancestors in Senegal OR Ghana as slaves. OR that her "people" are STILL enslaving fellow black Africans in the year 2018 AD. (Not that this concerned either Barry 0bama, Susan Rice, or any of 0bama's posse of Soviet "Democrats of Color."

Wow...

Intimidation from the US gubmint sounds rampant.

So when they close down these accounts, do they let the American expats keep their assets or confiscate them?

How does one cope with this situation?

The real reason why African-Americans are moving to Africa (Ethiopia) is that this is the real God's country, the land of milk and honey. The African-Americans are descendants from Ham (people of ancient Canaan- father of the black people). They are returning to their true roots.

Affected foreign banks have no axe to grind with their American customers, so there's no issue with them confiscating customer's money. They would simply inform American customers that they will no longer offer services and the expats would simply close the account as normal and withdraw any balances. And new customers of US citizenship are simply turned away with apologies.

How does one cope with this situation?

It's not all banks that refuse to comply. Some do comply and keep US customers. It depends on how conflicting the requirement is to each bank's policy, and perhaps, the laws of the country they operate in. Each bank decides what to do on a case by case basis.

There may be a $10k minimum that needs to be met as well. Not sure of the details.

When the Jews return to Zion

And a comet rips the sky

And the Holy Roman Empire rises,

Then you and I must die.

From the eternal sea he rises,

Creating armies on either shore,

Turning man against his brother

I think one of the original Black Panthers that was wanted for murder fled to Africa,and lived there for several years before coming back to the US. When he did come back he wasn't very popular with the blacks or the leftie whites because after that personal experience,he wanted to rant and rave about how wonderful America is compared to Africa. He was treated well by the government there because they wanted to rub it in America's face,but said the typical African showed nothing but contempt for him because he was a descendant of slaves.

I bet white Americans traveling/working in Africa outnumber these black race tourists about 10:1.

Probably,but the untold story is she probably has no more contact with the typical African there than she did in NYC. She lives amongst the ruling class and socializes with them and other black Americans in a upscale area of the capital city. She might as well be white or Jewish in Manhattan.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

The Omen original I liked. It was the part about the priest mouthing the words "When the Jews return to Zion" to warn of God's prophetic message that made me think. When I started to look into this message, it became more clear to me what it meant.

I'll say this about those African-Americans returning to their roots. I applaud them but at the same time, what awaits them in Africa will not be much pleasant because most of Africa is controlled by ISIS and the Islamic State (which the US trained). This means that they will have to either convert to the Muslim faith or face death. At one time, Africa (ancient Ethiopia was the land of God and plenty) But that region has endured so so much hardship and bloodshed that I shudder to think of those who would return to their homeland roots at this time. It is why I mentioned the Zion message above as I believe it applies to particularly these people. When this will happen, it will be a time of Jacob's trouble as never before and involve the U.S. in an international crisis because we do business with Ghana and much of Africa today.

I don't know about right this moment,but 10 + years ago they LOVED wealthy black Americans moving to Africa. Right up to the time they managed to steal all the money they brought with them or they can get wired from relatives in the states,and after that it rapes and beatings for the lucky ones. Death for the ones no lucky enough to still have relatives in the states with enough money to buy their freedom.

African blacks have nothing but contempt and hatred for western blacks because they are the offspring of slaves.

I tried to watch the second Omen but Liev Schreiber is no Gregory Peck. I could see why they chose Schreiber though. He wasn't awful in the role.

There are historical records from Jamestown that prove the truth of what I have written,and I have even told you how to find them.

Yet you are unable to produce them.

I don't work for you,dipshit. I did you a favor by telling you how to find that info for yourself. If you are too stupid to be able to figure it out from there,that's the fault of your DNA.

BTW,PLEASE feel free to keep parroting the nonsense you THINK is the truth. It identifies you as an ignorant fool to everyone who knows better.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

You are just boring me now.

I never said what I think is the truth or not. I've just asked you to explicitly produce your evidence.

You are beginning to sound like some CNN reporter on PMS.

Don't worry about it Nancy,lots of people don't know how to do web searches.

People who can't read or write,for example.

How old are you,8? The world doesn't exist to please you,cup cake. Nor do we work for you or think there is anything even the tiniest bit special about you other than your ignorance.

Screaming "YEW WRONG,YEW WRONG!" might be ok when dealing with your mama,but all it gets you in the real world is ridicule. If you think I am wrong,PROVE that I am wrong,or STFU about it after admitting YOU were wrong,goober!

Just out of curiosity, I decided to spend a couple of minutes (literally that long) looking up you claim. There is this:

http://conservative-headlines.com/2012/03/americas-first-slave-owner-was-a-black-man/

But then there is this:

http://www.beingfactual.com/first-slave-owner-african-american/

While the case of Anthony Johnson and John Casor was not the case of the first slave, first slave owner, or first legal slave owner, it might possible have been the first civil case involving slavery, and at the very least is the first known example in the colonies of a black man owning either indenture servants or slaves. Slaves had been here since 1619, and all slaves had been “legal” slaves (and thus their owners “legal” slave owners) since the first law legalizing slavery passed. The first man to be considered a slave by a court of law was John Punch, and his owner Hugh Gwyn considered the first slave owner by a court of law. However it might be of interest to note that in 1670, when Johnson died, a court in Virginia ruled that, because “he was a Negro and by consequence an alien,” the land owned by Johnson (in Virginia) rightfully belonged to the Crown meaning that because he was a negro he did not have the legal right to own property to begin with.

Why you feel it is so problematic to provide the basis of your claims indicates something I can't know for a fact about you. I can only surmise.
