More African Americans are escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. The rate at which blacks in America are moving to African countries has increased since a racist became the U.S president. The amazing thing about all of this is that nobody seems to be offering any legitimate solutions to the race issue.
Muhammida el-Muhajir, one of those who have moved from the U.S to Africa was interviewed by Aljazeera and she said she moved because, despite her education and experience, she was always made to feel like a second-class citizen especially under the Trump administration. Moving was an opportunity to fulfill her potential and avoid being targeted by racial violence.
She also said “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.” …”You might not have electricity, but you won’t get killed by the police either.”
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 they say that even though living in Ghana is not always easy, they feel free and safe.
