Liberia has decided to grant dual citizenship to the thousands of liberians who fled the country and now hold UK, US etc passports to ease thier return. This will not be the case for the 1000s of people of Lebanese descent, who despite being born in Liberia, will have to apply for visas as foreigners because they are 'non-negroes' (sic). If this is case then of course Liberian 'negroes' holding citizenship of 'non-negro' countries should give them up and go back reckons a leading political commentator.

There. Understand now? The terms used as in (sic) are those used by the liberian national press.

easy: in other words, blacks should go back to where they came from? Is your post a racist comment subtly disguised as a political question concerning African emigration policy? If whites cannot have citizenship in African nations because they are not black, then why should blacks have citizenship in so-called "white" nations"?

'If whites cannot have citizenship in African nations because they are not black, then why should blacks have citizenship in so-called "white" nations"?' That's what the black liberian commentator said as the ironic thing is that the people voicing the largest objection to 'white' people having citizenship even though they were born there are the expatriate liberian communities in Europe, US and Canada, who will get dual citizenship. Your first sentence isn't even worth considering. Nobody mentioned black; the words used were negro and non-negro.

And what gutter language would that be in this case? There aren't any racist undertones; I've simply stated what is going on here in Liberia, a mass case of reverse racism, as a provocative posting. As I've noticed more and more on these threads no discussion ever actually takes place just bickering and insults if aposting doesn't fit in with the bigoted, brainwashed, PC view of the world most posters on here have. What is your opinion on what is happening here in Liberia? This is loosely connected to a current thread about the word 'racist'.

I've gotta say I'm not sure why Easytiger's getting so much abuse here. It's very hard to get debate going here when Simon and Gordon come in, but that doesn't mean the rest of you have to have that attitude.

I can't even say I agree with a lot of things Easytiger says but he deserves to start a debate just as much as any of you.

Give me a sec and let me re-read the OP to see I what I make of the issue.

Right.

So one group of people is being treated as foreign despite them being born in the country, and thus has far more red tape to deal with in living there. Meanwhile another group, who are Liberian as well, have sought asylum in another country and thus been granted citizenship, but want to return. And the argument is that if one group is to be termed foreign, the other should be too?

Sounds fair to me although really if you hold a Liberian passport you should be deemed to be Liberian.

EDIT: But really, those who have flashed at the word "negroes" and jumped on the racist bandwagon, attaching all sorts of other debates to this need to grow up.

Fine, but here he is actually trying to start a debate rather than attack people, and he's being attacked for it.
