More than a dozen Georgia families buy land to create safe city for people of color

A group of 19 Black families in Georgia has purchased nearly 97 acres of land to create a “safe haven for people of color,” CNN reported Saturday.

The land, which was purchased by the families in August, is located just east of Macon in rural Wilkinson County, Ga. The purchase was organized by the Freedom Georgia Initiative, a group that co-founder and Vice President Ashley Scott said is necessary to promote a strong community among Blacks following the civil unrest prompted by the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

“Watching our people protesting in the streets, while it is important, and I want people to stay out in the streets, bringing attention to the injustices of Black people. We needed to create a space and a place where we could be a village, again, a tribe, again," Scott told CNN.

The group intends to create a new city on the land and name it “Freedom Georgia.” Scott said that while the city is not meant to be for Blacks exclusively, it will be “pro-Black in every way.”

"Being able to create a community that is thriving, that is safe, that has agriculture and commercial businesses that are supporting one another and that dollars circulating in our community, that is our vision,” Scott said.

The land is located just 130 miles south of Atlanta, where a police officer fatally shot 27-year-old Black man Rayshard Brooks in June after Brooks grabbed the officer’s stun gun and attempted to flee. Officer Garrett Rolfe was charged on 11 counts, including felony murder and aggravated assault.

Rolfe was fired from the police department the next day, prompting him to later file a lawsuit against the mayor and city’s police department, arguing that his dismissal was carried out "without an investigation, without proper notice, without a pre-disciplinary hearing, and in direct violation of the municipal code of the City of Atlanta."

R23 here's some crime stats for you, if you can manage it. pro tip: the stats are relative to population. For example, when they say that murder is committed by 53.0 percent were Black or African American, 44.4 percent were White, and 2.6 percent were of other races, their population is relative to the stats. If Black people are 13 percent of the population, their stats relative to their population should be 13 percent or less, and yet, they are committing 53 percent of the murder in the country.

Because when you systematically starve a group of people of resources they need to better themselves and it's on purpose, you end up with a big shit show shitfest, and that's exactly what's happened. People turn to violence and crime, because it's all they know. Some people any.

There never has been, there isn't now, and there never will be, any race of people on the earth fit to serve as masters over their fellow men."

W.E.B Du Bois had this to say:

“In the city of Philadelphia the increasing number of bold and daring crimes committed by Negroes [since 1890] has focused the city on this subject. There is a widespread feeling that something is wrong with a race that is responsible for so much crime, and that strong remedies are called for. One has but to visit the corridors of the public buildings, when the courts are in session, to realize the part played in law-breaking by the Negro.”

Gay males, whose first instinct is to scream racism, are not concerned with black people. Maybe they know someone black, but it’s not the ones responsible for the disproportionate percentage of crime committed by blacks. Fellow gays who’ve had the good fortune of living their adult years from the 90s to now are aware of the propensity among the gay male population of putting on airs amongst ourselves. It sucks. It can vary to some degree from one gay male to the next, but it happens nonetheless. These families with this much money to be able to buy 97 acres aren’t the dangerous blacks who make local and national news for their crimes. They may have realized though that self segregation is the best answer to the problems that plague the black population in general. First, raise the kids where they’re not influenced by pop culture, which glorifies the black criminal. Also, keep them away from whites (remove the sense of being a minority constantly being compared to the majority). I could go deeper, but really this is just Datalounge, No point in going any deeper. I hope people get the point.

P.S: I have the misfortune of living among poor-working class blacks. It’s depressing. Just report to management (apartment complexes) or call the police as soon as soon as is feasible. My experience is they won’t be talked to. They want to live among whites but don’t want to lift themselves up to help maintain the places they live. They’ll bring the people around them down and soon ghetto-ize the are. I’ve experienced multiple times over the last ten years 😞

Honestly my first thought when I read the story was this is a scam like in Cotton Comes to Harlem. Except this time the target are not the nickels and dimes of poor blacks, but the millions from guilt ridden corporations and foundations.

It won't be an official city. It will have no services other than the services provided by the county to any other neighborhood. To become an official city requires all sorts of legal/governmental approvals. They will have no power to do anything any other group of citizens have. If county roads run through the property they will have no authority to restrict traffic flow or enforce traffic laws on those roads. If they build this "city" off of a county road and want to make it a gated community they'll have to go through the same county requirements/approvals any other builder would.

In Georgia to form a new city they must have a charter of municipal incorporation approved by the Georgia General Assembly. Because municipalities are controlled by the state legislature, their boundaries, structure, and even the existence of the city can be altered or abolished by the state.

by Anonymousreply 11109/14/2020

R111, you are correct. Over yeh past 20 - 25 years several cities have been formed to escape black controlled government in Georgia. Also at least one city was created by primarily black citizens. If they follow the proper procedures they will get their city.

Did a judge ask Harvard to find out why Detroit, which is only 10% white, is not a literal paradise of justice, peace, and prosperity? Whitey graciously ceded the city to the POC who lived there. How long exactly is it going to take to create heaven on earth in this nearly all-black city?

It stands to reason that if 12 families can afford to purchase almost 100 acres of land, even in a rural county like that, they're solidly middle class. Not the sort of people who would set up a crime riddled "hood".

The city of Detroit, as of 2019, is 78.6% black. Not 90%.

Metro Detroit is only 22.8% black.

Huh? I'd love to know who these people are. A large percentage of white people are all too happy for people of a different color or ethnicity to live away from them in their own communities. It's when they start moving into the white neighborhoods that the whites start moving out. Hell, even many so-called liberals get nervous when too many people who they perceive to be unlike them move into their neighborhood.

Land for $1000.00/acre would be uncleared land not near any sort of services. As you can see from this site the prices of land in that county are generally far more than $1000.00/acre. There is one listing for a plot of 1.38 acres for $7800.00.

I've been saying for years that society actually wants self-governed racial segregation, and that it's evident in the way black people and white people have lived their lives since 1965. Segregation, as long as separate but equal is actually enacted with legitimacy (black authorities and positions of power over the black community, white authorities and positions of power over the white community), works and is necessary to prevent conflict.

by Anonymousreply 14009/15/2020

Society already self-segregates, more than half a century after integration was made a national law. Maybe it's time to re-examine whether or not segregation is actually necessary.

"Um, poor people commit the majority of violent crimes"

Oh, shut the fuck up, r125. These criminals aren't dressed in rags, and have food in their stomachs and plenty of Newports. I didn't realize poor people need to viciously rape women just to keep their head above water either. People like you love to make excuses for them. Maybe that's because you're too lazy and/or afraid to actually address the problem.

Now, why don't you go on YT and search the many, many examples of blacks assaulting whites? Explain why a black student in junior high receiving a free public education dressed in fashionable clothes, is beating up a weaker white student and is doing it because he's oppressed. This, btw, why other blacks look on and laugh. After that, you can educate us all on how being poor resulted in the need of the "Knockout Game".

Believe you me, white people everywhere would like nothing more than for segregation to resume by any means necessary. It's black people that have a problem with the idea of living separately from white people. That's why they bitch about "white flight" so much.

Oh, here is the most ironic instance. I am a LMSW who works for a ASO. I was doing HIV testing on World AIDS Day in 2008. This one white man who was 20 or 21 kept insisting that I was happy Obama was elected so that I could get free health insurance. I told him tepestedly that I got heal5h insurance paid by my employer 100% already so I do not need free insurance from the government. Most of the 20 minutes was spent on this conversation. After I gave him his results. The unemployed idiot had the audacity to ask if I knew of a place where he could get warts lasered off his ass for free.

R147 let me rephrase that ...I do hear white people make disparaging remarks about blacks when its yet another story on the news about black on black violence . Or black crime statistics in general,wich lets be real,are through the roof. Wich is why most people I know arent sympathetic to the BLM cause . How can it matter to whites,when it damn sure doesnt seem to matter to them. A simplistic outlook,granted,but thats what most people I know feel. Also Id like to point out that hispanics make up a greater percentage than blacks in this country,yet they dont seem to have near the problems in their communities that blacks do. Their poverty rates are pretty much equal,they certainly suffer from systemic racism,yet ... Reality is as long as there are different types of people,someone is going to look down on the other .Thats human nature,always has been,always will be.

We really just need to reinstate segregation, but make it a self-governing kind of thing (blacks rule over blacks, whites rule over whites) in order to solve all of the problems with the original version of segregation. Blacks and whites already self-segregate and have been doing so since integration first became a thing. It's just natural. The two races would get along much better if we just didn't have to share everything with each other, including space. The crazy thing is that both races actually want this and yet nobody wants to actually implement any actions to make it so.
