When he said that Africa needs to get it's stuff together internally (the tribal mentality that still exists, infrastructure, politics etc) before expecting the outside world to fix their problems.
I'm not sure what is divisive about this, nor has anyone ever considered this divisive. I think people are just lookin for something here, something that doesn't exist. The internal problems in ADOS are well known and we also understand the history that has caused this, hence the Kerner Report, GI Bill and Man in the House Rule.
What made the rise divisive was the anti-black immigrant arguments, the xenophobia. I have not heard the president of Ghana say anything close to that. And indeed Africa can't wait for the invisible helping hand to come safe Africa. He's correct on that one. That's a healthy and rational approach.
I do support ADOS, but what happened towards Black immigrants was completely unnecessary. Nowhere has the president of Ghana attacked ADOS and said ADOS is not welcome. I did follow the development closely at the time, and some Black immigrants was basically told to get the f*ck out of USA. Even those with "mixed" Black immigrant ancestry from Africa and the Caribbean had to endure these things.
Javen Bullets Awaricus documented a lot, and even in the comment section you can still read the vitriol for Black immigrants.
ADOS has said we can't fix Africa, especially when we are not in a position to do so. We have to focus on fixing things in our backyard first before prioritizing Pan African endeavors.
People have not asked ADOS to fix Africa, what was said and what I told Yvette long before the ADOS hashtag popped off. Was, that ADOS (Black Americans at the time) could find ways to financial gains to leverage the economy for ADOS, by connecting to the continent. Because working together would be more beneficial. She said no, we wait for reparations. I explained to her the opportunities, while this was talked about on the channel Search For Uhuru. Opportunities such as importing coffee from Ethiopia, even Ethiopian clothe fabrics is more superior, Senegal has the best leather products and so one… Compared to from where it comes now.
Reparations are deserved and needed (we have that data), but what if they keep postponing this as they have been doing? We see ADOS getting in shambles more and more on a daily basis. And in one way it's understandably some Black immigrants are cautious, although they usually are unaware of the historical events that took place. But I also realize and admit that some of these Black immigrants are hatful towards ADOS. These do exist.
