Sis Naphti wrote "if repatriation means to return to one's own land/country or birthplace, then not a one will be repatriating to Ethiopia. Ethiopia has never been colonised, and was not part of the evil slave trade.
It would be repatriation to Senegal, Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire etc (Mandinka, Wolof, Toucoluer, Peul, Fulani, Twi etc etc) "
This is a moot point becuase why should Africans subscribe to the division lines of Africa that was done by Europeans in the Berlin conference of 1889. Africa is Africa and in fact the word Ethiopia is used to denote the whole of Africa. Garvey especially used the word Ethiopia to mean the whole of Africa, but apparently some are confused and took repatriation to Ethiopia to mean going back to small portion of Africa that is called Ethiopia.
