Youtube - Vice guide to travel Liberia - part 3 -

I know this documentary is old but I recently stumbled across and I just thought to myself how can we explain what has happened in this country? Is there any going back for these countries when it goes this far? Whats worse look at the legacy of Hip Hop in this country mainly the glorifying violence side of it. If only 2pac could see his legacy over-seas.

America OWES liberia Why does it sit back and do nothing? It made sure Israel was a secure nation and it keeps that promise to this day. Then again I don't even know why im asking this question I already know the answer.

Do you see yourself playing an active role in development and implementation of such a plan?

If so, what role would you be interested in?

Me personally, I would proablably be interested in drumming up the funding sources to support the effort. I think this is one of the more challenging aspects of such an endeavor, but one I think I would be willing to take an active role in.

Sorry about the delay, but here it is:

Was Liberia Founded By Freed U.S. Slaves?

In Tuesday's Washington Post, an editorial urging President Bush to send peacekeepers to civil war-wracked Liberia noted that the country was "founded by freed U.S. slaves." Is that true? Not quite

Although some freed American slaves did settle there, Liberia was actually founded by the American Colonization Society, a group of white Americans—including some slaveholders—that had what certainly can be described as mixed motives; in 1817, in Washington, D.C., the ACS established the new colony (on a tract of land in West Africa purchased from local tribes) in hopes that slaves, once emancipated, would move there, the society preferred this option to the alternative: a growing number of free black Americans demanding rights, jobs, and resources at home ...

Henry Clay was among supporters of sending freed slaves to Liberia
