As a German, I am quite familiar with the latter.

Benin is a Democracy (in progress), and the only Country in Africa, whose president relinquished his post after a free election.

P.S. The World needs to get rid of Mugabe.

Be honest with yourself...
If you asked me this question 400 years ago, as I stood on a dock after surviving the ride across the ocean, scared to death, beaten, hungry in a strange land being sold to the highest bidder, no friends or family....then I would have said yes. And I would say that children who are brought here today from Africa and other countries and sold as sex slaves and God knows what else would more then likely wish to return to their families.

But what is there to "go back to"? It is obviouse where African Americans came from; one does not have to go back to Africa to prove it.

From the hull of a slave ship to the Presidency of the United States ....African American history began in Africa but it continues to write itself ......here....in America.
















I grew up in Canada though...so I guess I am African-American-Canadian? Or African-Canadian-American, but then I had to renounce my Canadian citizenship so am I just African American again? But my family..my ROOTS are in Canada......so I could be AfriCanadiamerican? How how about.....Rachel!<--hmm I like that.

I think your head has gotten too big for its own good.

Huh? Do you dispute the fact that we are all Africans? Oh wait, my bad, maybe you're right if I am thinking like a heathen evolutionist.
