Apostle Thomas Rodgers, Sr. of Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries in North Carolina told CNN host Carol Costello that black Americans should receive “dual citizenship” so that they could find jobs in Africa.
“African-Americans are the only people in the world who do not seek dual citizenship,” Rodgers said. “That’s why Chicago gangs, California gangs, the Crips and the Bloods and Detroit in Michigan — we have gangs in the streets because blacks have no vision, they have no leadership.”
“You’ve also talked about building a road back to Africa,” Costello noted. “Can you explain that?”
Rodgers replied: “Matter of fact, where our ancestors came from, from the Indian Ocean all the way across the Atlantic Ocean, that’s 4,000 miles and we want to go back and help with the highways all the way across, to create jobs, train rails, pipelines, oil, petroleum. They create jobs for young people that can’t find jobs here, that the Democrats have not did.”
“I think it would give young people in prison [jobs] just like Great Britain did,” he opined.
Er…is he referencing what I think he’s referencing? Holy isht. No, no, that’s not a good idea. Nope. You can read the rest of his, um, ideas here. There’s video, too.
