Rapper Akon Tells All Black People To Move To Africa: ‘This Is Not Your Country’

Excerpted from IB Times:

R&B star Akon has suggested that African-Americans living in the US should move back to Africa following George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

The Smack That hitmaker, who was born in Senegal, west Africa, took to his Instagram page after the trial in which Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter by a jury of six women in Sanford, Florida.

Singer Kelly Rowland shed tears for the teenager and his family, Lil’ Kim cried out for justice, and Russell Simmons called for a change to gun laws. Keep reading
