With the way things are going so far in 2020, if you’ve been thinking about moving back to the motherland…this may be the time to do it y’all!

So I bet y’all didn’t know this, or maybe you did, but I sure didn’t! Back in 2013 the United Nations officially declared that the years of 2015–2024 would be known as, the International Decade for People of African Descent. They did this to promote “respect, protection and fulfillment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms of people of African descent.”

Then in September 2018, The President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo, traveled to Washington, D.C. to declare and launch the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019”. This was to encourage African-Americans to return and reconnect with their roots after their ancestors were forced from their homeland some 400 years ago.

Now I know what you may be thinking? Well that’s great and all…but I’m not African?? So here’s the things, Ghana wants to encourage ALL Africans in the diaspora. Translation, y’all better splurge on one of them Ancestry DNA tests because IF you have Ghanian roots, you are eligible and moreover, ENCOURAGED to apply for citizenship!! Chileeee, I’m about to order me one of them tests EXPEDITIOUSLY, because things ain’t looking so good with this whole Iran situation so I’m ready to get TF ASAP!!

Now, yes this news isn’t technically NEW but it’s coming back into the news since everything going on with Iran and our Preseident. Now, #WWIII is trending and black Twitter is cutting UP, ever since hearing the news. Please peep some of the reaction memes below because EYE AM DEEEEAD!!!
