Monique John wasn’t sure what to expect when she stepped off the plane in her new home: the West African nation of Liberia. “It was very rundown looking,” the Brooklyn-born 28-year-old recalled of her first glimpse of the capital, Monrovia, nearly three years ago. “But my feeling as I was walking along the city’s main streets was a sense of excitement… it felt almost like an out-of-body experience to finally be in Africa.”(Snip) “There is a comfort that comes with being around people who look like you, and seeing [people like you] on billboards and in government positions,” Reid, 36, said.

How "interesting" that the woman the story leads with, Monique John, is revealed deeper into the piece to have "moved back to the US".

#5, Yep. It was 15 and paragraphs down and 6-7 from the bottom: “John, a freelance journalist who has since moved back to the US, is haunted by the memory of a young girl selling popcorn across the street from her apartment. ‘The electricity had gone out and she was trying to heat the popcorn with this little lamp while trying to get her homework done,’ John said. ‘This is the reality of children having to forgo school altogether or manage a side hustle along with school to protect themselves and families.’”

According to the left "diversity" is our greatest strength not our freedom, the gold standard for any country! Unfortunately diversity is a fool's errand and most don't support diversity just like Monique John doesn't. Another falsehood of the left exposed!

Years ago, I was in North Africa in a typical, run-down African hotel - no A/C, hot, threadbare carpets, flies and so on. The kind of stuff you see in most third-world accommodations that aren't resorts. There were two black American couples sitting in the lobby, and you could tell without even listening to them that the women were just OUTRAGED that the place wasn't up to their expectations. Trump was right when he described them as ----hole countries. That's what they are except for the very wealthy corrupt leaders.

Liberia was pretty war torn when I lived in Ghana in the early nineties, and it doesn't appear that much has changed. Many parts of Africa are simply beautiful, and if you have outside employment (from the US for instance), you can live quite well. I loved living in Ghana, but there's no place like home. Great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there permanently. As far as the police, from my experience in Ghana, far worse than anything you get in the US. What one of the former Americans said about Tanzania could be said about any town in America versus LA, NY, etc. Her kids go to International school, so it seems she's living on the better side of Tanzania. You have very few rights in these countries, and bribery is part of life, if you have money. Additionally, many Africans don't see black Americans as African Americans. If your skin is light, many consider you white, because you're not a pure black. Sound familiar? You can't leave America and escape racism. If you don't get racism, you get classism which is just as bad, if not worse. Poor countries basically have two classes of people; the have and the have nots. Ghana was more a part of the slave trade than America; nice to see they are making efforts to bring blacks back after shipping them out of the motherland to other parts of the world through their slave trade. Praise Ghana, but let's be real too, okay?

I had a class from a professor in grad school who did his two year mormon stint in an african country. he told an amusing story about how the postman would knock on the door, standing, shuffling a stack of letters. My professor said he learned that one had to ask the postman if he had any mail for him. and the mailman would respond, "I don't know." a small bribe would then allow the postman to find the letters.

Some people just don't like diversity, I guess. Most not be their strength. I wish them all the best and hope they find happiness. I do very much understand the comfort that they find in seeing people who look like them. That makes perfect sense to me. As a white male, however, I must express my frustration that I would be called a racist if I ever had the temerity to publicly express that same sentiment.

A plurality of the respondents—43%—said the virus came about naturally while a quarter say they aren’t sure

Major U.S. airlines have come under criticism for spending nearly $45 billion on stock buybacks and dividends over the past five years before asking Congress for a $50 billion bailout in the coronavirus crisis. The $2.2 trillion relief package signed into law on March 27 met the airline industry's demand for $50 billion in loans and grants, but restricts stock buybacks, dividends, layoffs and executive pay raises. However, in recent years the industry splashed out billions on share repurchases, which help prop up the price of a company's stock, leading some to believe that the costly bailout could have been minimized or avoided.

Chicago — Chicago immigrants who do not have legal status in the U.S. are eligible for all relief programs run by the city amid the coronavirus outbreak, Mayor Lori Lightfoot ordered Tuesday. Lightfoot said that includes programs for housing assistance and low-interest small business loans administered by the city.

The package is limited to those who have filed federal taxes using Social Security Numbers.

"We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted?

What is the origin of the new coronavirus? It is an alarming topic. Still, a notable portion of the public—particularly conservatives—believes that the virus emerged from a laboratory rather than nature, according to a new poll released on Wednesday.

Dr. Zeke Emanuel — the architect of the bloated Obamacare legislation — essentially called for an 18-month national lockdown to stem the coronavirus outbreak.

Zeke Emanuel has been spent his entire medical career in academia or government, so it’s safe to say that he doesn’t have to worry about missing a paycheck during a nationwide shutdown. Like fellow government bureaucrat Dr. Anthony Fauci, Emanuel offered a bleak picture of America’s future. “Realistically, COVID-19 will be here for the next 18 months or more,” Emanuel told MSNBC.

The first time Fauci was noted signaling to his allies in media was when he signaled to ABC’s Jonathan Karl after an antagonistic exchange with President Trump at a task force briefing [SEE HERE]. Today, another briefing, and CNN’s Jim Acosta had a similar antagonistic exchange with President Trump. Once again Dr. Fauci hangs back to give Acosta a similar signal.
