Do you agree that black people should be able to have their own nation and to release black criminals from jail and let the "new black nation" deal with them? They talk about how all white people in South Africa should move elsewhere and all black people to Africa. Yes or no? Why?

It's a stupid idea. Segregation is always stupid, whether it's voluntary or not. And apart from that: where are we gonna put all those black people? Haven't we learned enough from the Israeli Palestine conflict during the past 60 years. Do we really need another of those? The United States alone has about 12% of its population that identifies as black or African American. That's over 30 million people. Now, let's be nice and say we'll spread them evenly over Africa's 50 countries (minus South Africa I guess?) So that would give us 600,000 extra people for every African countries. Some countries in Africa don't even have 600,000 inhabitants. It's very unlikely they'd be happy about a sudden growth in their population of 20%, 50% or even 100%. Especially if these black foreigners from North America and Europe don't even speak the national language of that new country.
And apart from that I also find African Americans who call Africa their homeland silly. It's not. Historically it is but certainly not culturally. The people who live in Africa nowadays have absolutely nothing to do with black Americans. They don't have the same mentality, they don't celebrate the same things, they don't eat the same type of food, they don't even necessarily speak the same language. And African Americans might praise Africa... until they're actually stuck somewhere in Somalia or Ethiopia or the Democratic Republic of the Congo or Zimbabwe. I strongly doubt they'll find Africa so cool by that time.1

segregation is always dumb idea, separating people who have a tan is just silly, having a tan doesn't give you magic powers, just protects you from sun0
