‘Racism’ 19 families in US Purchase 97 acres of land to build a safe city for Blacks

Racism in the United States has forced a group of 19 black families to buy almost 97 acres of land to build a city where black people will be safe.

The families, who are tired of the killings of black people, purchased the land in Toomsboro, Georgia.

The initiative named The Freedom Georgia Initiative was launched by a realtor identified as Ashley Scott, and her friend named Renee Walters

Scott said the death of Ahmaud Arbery inspired the initiative. Arbery was killed while he was outdoors for a jog.

In an op-ed published on Blavity, Scott said she sought counselling from a black therapist and it helped her.

Scott said: “It helped me to realize that what we as Black people are suffering from is racial trauma. We are dealing with systemic racism.”

According to her, what black people in the United States are dealing with will require more than taking to the streets to protest.

She said black people in the US need to plot, plan, strategise, organise and mobilise.

Scott said: “So that’s what I and my good friend Renee Walters, an entrepreneur and investor, did.”
