July 15, 2013 – Trayvon Martin Case: Akon Urges All African Americans To Move Back To Africa “America Is Not Your Country”

By now you must have heard about the unfair verdict given to George Zimmerman, the killer of African-American boy, Trayvon Martin.

The innocent boy was shot to death by  Zimmerman who has been found not guilty of the murder.

Senegalese-American rapper Akon is urging all African Americans to move back to Africa where they will be treated like royalty.

The rapper said America is not their country.

Check out his tweets below;

Every African American in the United States need to move their money, family, knowledge back to Africa were u will be treated like the royalty you are. You don’t deserve this treatment. This is not your country!!

Responses to Akon’s tweets

Queen_kaltum said @ akon well said we need to bo back to Africa where we belong and we will be treated like king n queen #so proud to be black African

Firstlady_trina I was just saying this… Relocating to Nigeria is definately an option now @ akon no joke

Isatou0129 It’s not true, I’m from West Africa and the judicial system is worst over there

Kuszprem: Sorry but movement to Africa is not the solution… Black Americans don’t have much in common with Africans…matter fact, our views are so distant that perhaps the only thing we have in common is our COLOUR.. Sadly the shackles are off physically but not mentally

atwater18: @ akon last time I check Africa didn’t want you either. You own kind sold you to the America as slaves. So please  you don’t like it here take your fame money and family go back.

rmarsolan: This isn’t his country either… he’s  of Latin decent.
This is the stupidest post I have read. This battle was not about race. Why do you have to make it taut way??? It’s 2013, please let racism die!!! We are all humans created by God. Stop seeing color and relating everything back to the color of a persons skin. Racism will never go away if people continue to act or think this way. If e was born in the United States, he’s American. Please don’t think this case was about black or white. And seriously, Zimmerman Isn’t even white, he’s Latin. Just remember we are all humans and we need to treat everyone, independent of race,sex,religion,with love and respect. That is the only way we will heal this world @ akon

@atwater18 @iamsukafree: I’m well aware of the history of all of this stuff. But the media blew it up and made it a racial thing. And then reading what Akon wrote it makes no sense. Take the time and read it again. The guys lacks knowledge lots of it.

Do you support Akon?

    I agree with akon but that wouldnt be an optition african american people are one of the ignorant people in the world and they will rather die over in the western hemisphere than to come to africa well they will never consider akon advise not that i support them but they lack the knowledge of africa and it history so it will be hard for them to adjust with the life we are living about 70% Of african american dont even know that africa is a civilized continent so i hope they come and the african history that

    Akon is absolutely right this is right time for African- American to come together and remember where they came from the only way they can do that is by going back to their root Africa Marcus carvery and bob marley already predict that someday all African descent in America will go back to Africa I personally believe it will happen very soon.

    Plss! Akon is a shame to Africa for making such a a dumb statement.. “Black American should go back to Africa” who told him there is space here in Africa for all blacks in america? Does he even av d records of blacks in America?
    America its a country of all nations! Wud segregation solve the judiciary problem in the world cos we have whites here and also face injustice!
    Let’s face the reality, learn from our former leaders and activist to tackle our problems rather than shy away from it.
    Just imagine same whites protesting for the dead black guy.. raising plancks that blacks are treated unfairly instead of the deceased treated unfairly. Let’s be cautious of our statement so as to discourage racism and embrace love.

    It does not make any scence at all, if you ask me i rather stay here than going back to Africa. African Autorities are even worst, if i most confess do not let them fool you onless things change and leadreds in Africa think like Nelson Mandela or follow his foot steps or things will not be better in Africa. what people need to do is to eleminate Racisim and fact the fact, i personally i do not think this is base on Racisim but instead is just dishonesty and lack of relegion. People need to stop bassing every little thing hapen between Blacks and White they base it on Racisim if Racisim is the case in this matter why is it that there are white people out there protesting for the injustice in this case, why they can they just said hs is black lets foget it.they could have stay home and let Only Black people handdle it on thier own

      You have been fighting way too long and for what…ego based illsion on matter s of the skin. Africa is doing much better than wwhat your media is telling you. Look up angola…even europeans are moving their to find the news. Crisis is hitting america and europe very hard. Think before you speak, because before you know it will be ony the poor left in whats left of in debt america. I would suggest only intelligent african mericans return to invest in homes and goverments who are changing now..check out angloa, ghana nigeria and some countries in that area..china is doing work. You have no connection to your roots because you dont know yourself…and your language, rituals etc..thatswhy yall lost…noguidance. Think about it

    Some of the comments here are Rubbish and generalization. Steven you no too get sense abi? You make mumu generalization like dat sha? Abeg, when man get sense then this world be better place.

    Issatou, you are obviously naive. When people are let off scott free for killing someone of a different skin colour from them like Diallo who was shot 48 times that is ok? Women like you make me say na wa for dis world o big wa. When there is injustice one must speak about it. Sure justice system in West Africa is not fair, nor is it anywhere. However, to say that America’s is better tells me you are a very brainwashed individual.
