JACKSONS STAR IN NIGERIA RESORT ROW

Visitors can contemplate the horror of slavery from their luxury rooms
Via BBC News

One of pop superstar Michael Jackson’s brothers, Marlon, is involved in a controversial plan to develop a $3.4bn (£2.4bn) slavery memorial and luxury resort in Badagry, Nigeria.

The historic slave port is to be transformed through the bizarre combination of a slave history theme park and a museum dedicated to double Grammy-winning pop-soul group the Jackson Five.

The idea is that the band will help attract African-American tourists keen to trace their roots back to Nigeria.

The men behind the plan say it will honour the history of the transatlantic slave trade and provide employment opportunities for Nigerians.

But the plan has been condemned by Nigerian commentators.

The African-American history trail is worth billions of dollars, the developers say.

Ghana and Senegal have successfully turned slave ports into tourist attractions.

The developers say the Badagry Historical Resort will be marketed to African-American tourists as a mixture of luxury tourist attractions and historical education.

Visitors will be able to see the route their ancestors walked, shackled together as they were whipped toward the “point of no return”.

They can then retire to their five-star hotel to drink cocktails by the pool.

 I don’t know whether to laugh or cry……

*Rubbing my temples*

“a slave history THEME PARK and a museum dedicated to double Grammy-winning pop-soul group the Jackson Five.”

By all means turn the slave port in to a tourist attraction, in a respectful and tasteful fashion, as achieved in Ghana and Senegal.

But a slave history THEME PARK a long with a museum dedicated to The Jackson Five – This is PURE UNADULTERATED FOOLISHNESS!!!!

Are we REALLY expected to believe that connecting the defunct Jackson Five to this venture will attract African-American tourists, who are keen to trace their roots back to Nigeria?

OH PLEASE!

This must have been the line spun to woo the Jacksons in to investing.

Are they seriously attempting to merge the horrors of the slave trade with luxurious surroundings and the history of The Jackson Five???

They must really take us Negroes for idiots!

This proposed venture is a great big steaming pile of dog poo!

It should be scrapped!

  1. No doubt the Jews(Zionists) put them up to this stupid adventure. Not surprising really seeing the Jews were the ones who owned all the slave ships and were behind the entire slave trade.

    Now they wish to build a monument to their abuse of black people, using the name of Jackson as a front name……but we know who is really behind this idea.

  2. are u sure verbs?… anywho

    this is madness, don’t know where u find these things Janoice, but big up, a theme park to celebrate / remeber / (or another word that ain’t totally F’ry) slavery, …

    what?… I don’t see the point?… and a jackson five museum, there about 30years late for that ain’t they? who cares about them now? ahahaha

  3. They would have had you not know this information but the cat is out of the bag now. There are many other pieces of skull duggery that they are behind. They would try and label this information as Anti Semitism but these are documented facts so they cannot pull that card out. Yep, you heard it correctly and can do the research yourself. I recommend a book called “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks And Jews” Volume 1. This book expounds on the topic.

  4. @Verbs

    I remember my dad schooling me on all this when I was about 8 years old.

    You’re not wrong and a lot has been/still continues to be swept under the carpet with regards to the transatlantic slave trade.

  5. Bank of America was once a plantation as were many of these other large banks. Who owns all the big banks? Jews. Rothchild, Rockerfella, Morgan etc are all Jewish.

  6. interesting… I’d link to know more about all that still…

    so verbs the jews,… were they knights of the templar too, like was the k.o.t.t jewish too? I know they fought in jerusalum, but that doesn’t make them jewish.

    verbs are u the one and only verbSWISH? or somebody else?

    can’t going off track, my bad, but I have always kinda defended the jews u know, belive they are Gods choosin’ people, not saying they ain’t done bad things, but being Gods people, I just thought slander, anger and other things would naturally be aimed at them?

  7. not saying they did’t and haven’t done wrong, I’m just asking, seriously u know. 😉

  8. Janice: I’m not happy about the venture, that’s for damn sure. It’s disturbing. And I really want to read the book that Verbs suggested. Sounds interesting. I feel sick !!!

  9. @Fr…

    Want to know more FR? Take a look at these. There are 4 parts to it, I think You’ll find them very interesting, very interesting:

  10. Revelation 2:9

    I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

    Ponder this verse!

    Revelation 3:9

    Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

    Ponder this verse too!

  11. What, in cotton picking hell, is this? Okay, I’ve been to the slave port & houses in Badagry, thanks to an excursion in my 1st year of secondary school. If they really want to trace their bloody roots, its all still there. That shit is depressing enough, we really don’t need this theme park.
    And for crying out loud, there are enough tourist attractions in Naija……..I don tire with this demonstration of crase.

  12. This project will never see the light of day. The Jacksons always announce grand schemes of theme parks in the States or hotels in Dhubai or whatever but they always seem to flop.

  13. Oh dear, lets see how the nigerians on ground will react to this. That’s when the jacksons will really know whether their plan is a good or idiotic one. SMH. I cannot believe that someone can actually wake up one day and come up with such ideas. Let them put it in america and lets see how or whether it will kick off. How is this going to trace their roots, how? That family has serious issues for sure. One minute thay are black, the next they are white, what next?

  14. “slavery memorial and luxury resort”, can someone please tell me whether that statement makes sense. Those two words, do not go together, do they? Eh

  15. “The historic slave port is to be transformed through the bizarre combination of a slave history theme park and a museum dedicated to double Grammy-winning pop-soul group the Jackson Five.” In other words, a museum dedicated to double grammy winning pop-soul group Jackson five period.
    “The men behind the plan say it will honour the history of the transatlantic slave trade and provide employment opportunities for Nigerians.” In otherwords, we are trying to set up a money making venture in disguise of providing employment period.
    “The African-American history trail is worth billions of dollars, the developers say.” You should have said this in the first place instead of smearing the whole thing with perfume yet it stinks of…..(anyone feel free to fill in the blank.

  16. “Visitors will be able to see the route their ancestors walked, shackled together as they were whipped toward the “point of no return”.

    “They can then retire to their five-star hotel to drink cocktails by the pool”. How do the two go together. You would think that they would be depressed after that venture and fall over a cliff or something but instead retire to luxury hotel for bloody cocktail? WTH is going on?

    Incase they think we have 4gotten, this is how xtianity started the flag following the cross, the worst thing about this is that it’s the black chap trying to pull a fast one.

    I just cannot get over this, am sorry.

  17. @ Adaobi – worrrrrrrrrd.

    Lai lai, they picked the wrong people to mess with….. IMPOSSICAN’T !!!
