Huge thanks to Liberia Positives on instagram for helping with this video. (Check them out! @libpositives) I honestly think I might consider going here. No joke. I might have to raise money by doing some more sponsorships and merch sales but it might be worth it..... #LIBERIA

So, basically, the Black Americans created the first functional, and successful Sub Saharan African republic on the verge of industrialization. Sadly a coup happened.

Geography Now Dude you’re a freaking liar, do your research better next time, better still include a native Liberian to help you with your research. Half of your information was wrong. There’s no phrase in Liberian English called “Swee muder.” 😡😡 You Americans do little research about Africa and pretend like you know all about it.

Liberian should not worry about the war, all missing properties will be rebuilt. just imagine America has experience this b4.the First World War I was fought in America and the country was destroyed and came to beg for a land in Africa to settled for liberty. which is now Liberia. And the remaining ones left in the state of America fight and build the America u people see today, little by little Liberia will be the beautiful country to. we should all come together as one and build our country successfully. I believe one day Liberia will be great.

+MélissaEnvy yes but Ethiopia was eventually colonized by italy
MélissaEnvy (22 days ago)
Liberia was a colony lol. Do you think the land was empty when the Black-Americans arrived there? Black Americans colonised Liberia and treated the people they found there poorly. Plus they're so desperate to be friends with the US, the land they escaped.... Ethiopia resisted colonisation and eventually became free.

This short and educational piece makes me share tears for my Mama Liberia. Tears of pride and joy cause I am a native of this great and naturally rich country. Tears of sorrow cause we continue to bringing shame on Mama Liberia by our insensitive political judgment which placed power in the hands of corrupt and/or unqualified people. Thanks so much for helping people know us a bit more than they did yesterday. Liberia, the sacred shrine of my DNA will rise again to the shame and demise of they that are betraying her love and trust today. Bless your heart and work!

Liberia was a set up to fail for black people ,why didn’t Americans intervene with the the civil war
Matthew Palafox (2 months ago)
8:15 yeah, that is true, but wasn’t it because of racism in the US? The ACS was trying to move African Americans out, even people in the Northeast didn’t like African Americans at the time, and of course, I don’t need to mention how the South looked at African Americans. I learned this in my US History class, so I think this is right(?)
