The country for Americans of African ancestry must be in USA territory, for we are talking about Americans. Two objections arise, one practical, and one racist.
The practical problem is where and what form? I dunno. How about Louisiana? Louisiana is already unique, and much to the chagrin of the oil men, it's valuable natural resources were essentially taken over by the state. That is a good start. How about Detroit? It is in chaos, which is a great place to start a country. Mississippi? Ask them.
Ex-slaves did quite well on their own forming a community in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The traditionally black district of Greenwood in Tulsa had a commercial district so prosperous that it was known as "the Negro Wall Street" (now commonly referred to as "the Black Wall Street"). Blacks had created their own businesses and services in this enclave, including several groceries, two independent newspapers, two movie theaters, nightclubs, and numerous churches. Black professionals—doctors, dentists, lawyers, and clergy—served the community. Because of residential segregation in the city, most classes of blacks lived together in Greenwood. They selected their own leaders and raised capital there to support economic growth. In the surrounding areas of northeastern Oklahoma, blacks also enjoyed relative prosperity and participated in the oil boom.White man burned it down. Shoulda had borders!
What got me going on this was the contretemps over cops killing Afro-Americans and Afro-Americans killing cops (really Iraqi war vets killing Iraqi war vets, but that's another aspect.). Not so much the stories themselves, as the virulent racism of the comments sections under the stories.
Next, writers I admire seems to flounder or wax pessimistic as to an outcome.
Complaint: Blacks are the only ones getting killed by police, or they are killed more.
Fact: As of July 2016, the breakdown of the number of US Citizens killed by Police this year is, 238 White people killed, 123 Black people killed, 79 Hispanics, 69 other/or unknown race.
Fact: Black people kill more other blacks than Police do, and there are only protest and outrage when a cop kills a black man.
Now it seems the point of open borders is to race-replace African-Americans with anybody else.
Hmmm... it took white man about 2500 years to get from Socrates on government to the constitution of the USA. Slavers captured or bought primitive peoples from Africa and put them in the worst circumstances. In spite of that, within two generations, a Dred Scott is arguing Western Civ in English with the best of them. It seems there are two alternatives: These Africans are supermen who can achieve in two generations what it took white man to accomplish in 2500 years, or the ideas are universally edifying.
Anyway, this was precisely the argument the English made against Irish independence. They benefit from enlightened, effective government, which they cannot maintain themselves. Racists say just look at black-dominated cities: Detroit, Memphis Atlanta. Mismanaged basket cases. No doubt, but look at countless basket-case white run cities. And who says given the opportunity and freedom, Afro-Americans would choose the reprobates a rigged political system offers up? In USA, black leaders tend to be government-owned, such as police-informer Al Sharpton. All countries feature their own selling their own down the river: Irish sell Irish down the River, Ukrainians Ukrainians, Japanese Japanese and so on. Different circumstances give rise to different skill sets and leaders.
Further, Thomas Sowell has done yeoman work noting a genesis of poverty in Afro-America. In his books The Politics and Economics of Race, he traces in essence impoverished Afro-America descending from the French Colonies, and the wealthy Afro-Americans descending from British Colonies. How come? The French never share power with their subjects, while the British do. Emanicpated slaves gained management experience. Compare Barbados and Haiti.
If Afro-Americans got their own country, would all blacks be relocated there, and would whites be excluded? No and no. About as many Jews live in USA as in Israel, and only about six million Jews live in Israel of about 14 million worldwide. And Israel itself is only about 75% Jewish. All these people thriving in USA have some place to go it abused. Only Afro-Americans do not. Their country, even under a two-systems one-country regime would give them an option, a city-state of refuge. It need not be any more "all-black" than Israel is all Jew, and it could be as multicultural as Hong Kong.
Why call this post Black Wives Matter? I personally have no doubt that the powers that be desire to rid America of African-Americans. I see the policies and programs and recognize them as what was visited on the Irish. Breaking up families is essential in this process. While working on the free city-state of Kingdom, Americans of African ancestry can revolt against the racists simply by marrying Afro-American wives and keeping the families together. The Irish have made great strides in family unit integrity from less successful times (although we too can work harder at this). A great country must have families as the foundation. An African-American city state will need African-American families to govern it, as Japanese families run Japan, Russian families Russia, etc.
Kingdom: a new prize upon with to fix the eyes and realize.
