I dont fully agree with this message. First of all,
obama is winning right now over a "white" and alot of people, including "whites" support him!! Second, there are alot of whites who do realize the shameful past of slavery and wish it had never happened. Unfortunatly, as we all know, we can not change the past but rather learn from it and pick up the broken pieces & mend them. Not all "whites" are racist people!! It really makes me feel bad when someone refers to all "whites" as being racist. I am white & my husband is a Ghanaian & I also plan to move to ghana soon. I have visited once and Ghana is just AWSOME. One would be crazy to not want to live there!!! Everything about Ghana is just awsome!! By the way, Obama, the "black preident", his mother is White. One more thing, I think that we should stop describing people as "that black man" or "that white woman" and just know that we are all human regardless of color and that color should not matter in the first place. GOD BLESS GHANA!!!!
These Inferior Ghanaian Chiefs
Author: Quantara Quamara
Date: 05-13 12:41 

Our chiefs are selling lands at cut-throat prices to fellow Ghanaians, sometimes selling the same land to several people, yet they are cutting lands free to African-Americans just because they come from America.

Do you think Americans of Wesh descendant will get free land should they return to Wales or most of the people in Wisconsin will get free land if the retured to Germany?

Do these chiefs feel inferior to the African-American?

It's a good idea in my opinion

I am an african american and wish to move to Ghana one day. Before I would make such a leap I would like to start a non profit business here and open up a manufacturing company that makes and donates wind and water turbines throughout Africa along with a water treatment center (that can also desalinate water), farming equipment for a large scale farm and to make facilities for a laboratory (it would also be nice to make a recycling center there). Maybe everyone who decides to make the move can bring a little back at a time, only time can tell. I hope to get my plan off the ground soon, so that I can take the appropiate steps. If Ghana doesn't seem to work out, I hear Gambia and maybe Senegal are 2 good contenders too. But something about Ghana has been tugging at my heart for the last 11 years.

Nothing is free

If you are a South Africa British born do you think when you return to Britain the local authority will give lands for free. Ghanaians chiefs must be educated now to put an immediate stop to these free lands as we would regret one day. They people could come to Ghana but they must buy lands just like any body else.

Wow,this piece of news has made my day!My African Dream is coming true afterall.I happen to have a song themed on the 'RETURN TO THE MOTHERLAND'.Goes like this;'DO we have to wait 4 more hundred years before we see 'U' return home? Do we have to wait over thousand years before we see you return home? No,we don't wanna do that for even one more day,for time is of the essence you see, brothers.Yes, we don't wanna do that for even one more night,for time is essential you see, sisters.And when you come we'll be waiting for you; thru' cycles of time, we'll be big and ready,so better hurry,come make we build Africa; we're waiting for 'U',so we can build together.We don't wanna do that for even one more day......'
Who said, 'Africa for Africans, home and abroad'? Who also said,'Until all Africans are free,none is free!'? Who also said,'It is only the return of our African brothers and sisters who were taken away by the heart staining,sull shattering pain of slavery, shall make her whole again'? They were damn right! Expect to hear more of such news-prophesy fulfilling!

It's a good idea. The truth is the ones migrating to Africa are the educated and enlightened ones. The lazy and bad ones will not leave becos they are relying on welfare and cannot purchase plane tickets, anyway.

LIFE IS HUSTLING THEM IN THE USA. BUT THEY MUST RESPECT THEIR FELLOW BLACKS FROM AFRICA. COULD ONE BELIEVE THAT A GHANAIAN SAT BY AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN IN A BUS AND SHOCKINGLY SHE MOVED TO ANOTHER SEAT? GHANA IS PEACEFUL AND A HAVEN THOUGH POOR BUT SHE IS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO LIVE ON EARTH. AFTER ALL WESLTH IN AMERICA DOES NOT MATTER BUT PEACE. EVEN THEIR UNEVEN JUSTICE IOS A MIND-BOGGLER. WHAT FREEDOM RIGHTS AMERICA HAS. YAKA GBEMEI.
Emulate the Jewish Example
Author: Oheneba
Date: 05-12 12:52 

As a saying goes “home sweet home”. The idea of our brothers and sisters wanting to reconnect to their roots is very comforting. The pain of slavery though inerasable but we got move forward as the perpetrators both Africans and Westerners are dead and gone. I think time has come for the African-Americans should forget the past and let us forge a new alliance of mutual respect and renewed sense of brotherliness. The example of Jews is worth emulating though with a bit of difference. By this I mean Jews outside the Holy Land are spiritually and emotionally attached to the sovereign state of Israel in terms of its development and security. In this regard, replicating a similar scheme between us would be a step in the right direction.
Food for thought

I applaud anyone abroad especially African Americans and those with Ghanaian origin taking the bold step to settle back in Ghana. Indeed Ghanaians are very hospitable people even sometimes to a fault. Then there are those criminals who assume that coming from abroad means you are filthy rich and must find ways and means to dupe you, and then there are those who will only hang out with you because of what you have, and there are also those who literally sink to begging for alms. I know some returnees are also obnoxious and think they have it all, we have people in all sorts so Ghanaians and African Americans returning home must not be stereotyped.

My question is this? Why are the African Americans being given free land? What are the terms and conditions of this arrangement?
What about other African Americans in Ghana who had to purchase land to settle in Ghana?
What about true born Ghanaians or natives returning home, wouldn't this offer of free land be a nice gesture to them also?
All that I'm saying is let us be careful about who we pick and choose. If we can welcome other blacks wouldn't the first step be welcoming any Ghanaian back from their sojourn abroad?

It is high time Ghanaians if we say we are One Nation, One People and One Destiny come up with some form of Coalition Government that is non-Partisan so we can move our nation forward. A nation where we can celebrate all and sundry and not despise or reject what anyone has to offer whether he or she lives in Ghana or not.

There is no where better in this world that the achievement of the black man will be truely and duely acknowledged than in Africa. Our chiefs should release more land for the zion movement.

Back to Motherland

Naturally its your birthright. Claim it proudly and hopeful the rest would follow. This awareness and truth is the reason why many African-Americans have become confused and not being accepted wholesomely by some whites in America. You were robbed of your birthright, language and self pride and dignity. You can also claim your dual citizenship as a way of re-connection to your motherland. Welcome home.(Akwaaba)

Dear Ms. Sentwali,
I sincerely hope you don't become a victim of a 'type 419' scam.The $750 annual site fee is high even by Accra norms. Please investigate your deal thoroughly.
Read between the lines. I'd hate for a returning Ghanaian to be duped by the forces of evil operating in the land registry offices. Take heed. Anyways, welcome back home !!

Dear Brothers & Sisters African Americans, in order to easily settle in mother African soil please make it a MUST to learn at least one of the local language spoken in the area of your abode. You would easily settle in with the brothers & sisters of the area. God Bless.

Migration in general has it's pros and cons, so the news of African Americans returning to their roots must seem as good news for the motherland. However Ghanaians should not be taken in with the fact that they're westerners, but to be vigilant and work hard with the appropriate authorities to apprehend and flash out the bad apples who might see Ghana as a safe haven for their atrocious activities. Ghanaian's hospitable attitude towards all kinds of foreigners is partly to blame for the surge in armed robbery cases.

We should allow more foregners into our country.

Those with wealth and professionals must be encouraged by the Govt to come and settle.

As for African Americans, as long as they have no criminal record just like any other foreigner, They must be given Ghanaian citizenship straight away.

Most foregners are better and hard working people than so called people who by birth claim to be Ghanains.
