You do not know what comforts or discomforts some of us have, and many more Blacks get killed at the hands of Whites. Many Blacks are almost killed daily. Many Blacks live under constant White threats.

Well obviously you don't see it, you are white, remember. We did not send her there. She could have stayed in the West and just support progressive African groups.
ras adam said: "no she remains home in Itiopia toughing it out strugglin to survive with her rasta brothers and sisters."
She chose that ahead of staying and fighting for equal opportunities in the West. Many Blacks would like to repatriate to Africa, many more than those who actually do. They do tough it out, and more will if they had the economic means to return.
I can empathize with the Many Blacks that suffer in and out of Africa, way before I can consider that one white person who was privileged to go there out of order.
