    Well said Professor. You have to take steps to protect them unless we want to expose them to entity that is ‘Nigeria’ who’d swindle, rob and kidnap them at the slightest opprotunity.

    We are looking forward to our coming home and our ritual cleansing from the abomination of slavery. The entire land must be cleansed of this abomination by a coalition of our traditional elders. Not only must returned descendants of captive African be cleansed from the abomination but the land itself must be cleansed.
