Greetings to all

Beautiful pictures indeed. Truly show the humanity in us...

If I may, I have a few questions about Africans in the diaspora. And i promise i come in peace...just in a state of confusion, hoping you will clerify me on it.

Why did any black person come home when slavery was abolished? and yet people say home sweet home
If Africa is such a beautiful place, the motherland, why aren't africans always prejudice against us here in the motherland?
If Africa is so Beautiful, why aren't any Afrocentrists not interested in investing here?
Why claim charity begins at home?
We have the West, as always trying to get their filthy hands on Zim trying to get Mugabe out? Where are our people who claim to be proud Africans?
Why call yourself African Americans, not just African? You don't hear whites calling themselves European-African...
We Africans at home, always support you overseas, but we are never good enough to be supported? Why is that?
Home truly is where the heart is...i don't think so (actions say the opposite.)

I stand corrected on this subject...Love and peace.

Greetings to you.
thanks for responding to my posts: please feel free to critique as I-Man am open to truth.
On the issue of why there is a division among African people?  Well, we are divided because we wont unite! someone said that "the chain is as strong as the weakest link" so we need to strenghten all the weak areas in our "collective" (African) lives.

we need more:

love, trust, truth, strength....

more of the positive virtues and less of the negatives.

I bid you peace. stay positive.

 Africa oh! our Africa the giant that sleeps but never slumbers.

Ages have past, odes have been spoken; yet she stands tall totaly unbroken.

African my father's land; Africa my mother's refuge there is never a place on earth that can capture your essence!
