  1. Mrs./Dr. Ambassador, you speak eloquently and with love and understanding. I realize the USA didn’t colonize Africa (except for Liberia) which is probably the reason Africans have high regard for her and want to align with her. Every country need allies and Africa could certainly benefit from a UNIFIED army for the entirety of the continent! But can you feel the pain of those who were enslaved in this country? With all respect, as an ADOS, I feel we are owed reparations from this country. Where do you and members of the AU stand on the ADOS movement? Why are you and so many Africans in love with a country that continues to murder innocent Black men, Black women, and Black children with impunity? Would you feel differently if the innocent blood was that of an African immigrant? Why do you trust her so? Why should Africans born in America, particularly ADOS, trust you and the AU? Why not partner, first, with ADOS? Anyhow….

  2. This lady conducting the interview is terrible..with her Trump obsession. If you called the good Dr. there to try to put her and Africa on your Trump Hate and incite Negativity between the two, you should have not wasted your time. What an embarassment. God Bless Africa rising, God bless the Doctor, and God Bless President Trump.

  3. Lady you are a chosen one for Africa even before born and through you great things are going to happen in Africa.Stay strong and focus.

  4. AFRICA CAN DOING IT WITHOUT ANY WHITE COUNTRY. AMONG ALL THOSE RACES OF PEOPLE WHO WHEN TO AFRICA THE WHITE PEOPLE ARE THE ON WHICH STOL AFRICA RESOURCES THE MUST. SHE SHOULD BE FOUND HERSELF SHE MUST NOT ACCEPT INTERVIEW WITH THOSE KIND. FOR THEY ALL SPY WHO ARE GOING TO REPORT HR SAYING. YOU CAN LOOK AT THEIR FACE WHEN THEY CARRY ON THE INTERVIEW.— FOR DO NOT LIKE TO HEAR WHAT SHE IS SAYING.— BECAUSE , IT IS NOT IN THEIR INTEREST TO SEE BLACK PEOPLE TO WAKE UP AND DENOUNCED THEIR GAMES

  5. How on earth can America be best friends with Africa? they have not forgotten slavery and with the inhumane treatment of African Americans to this day by police, with the Aids and Ebola Agender, not to mention Bill gates is so into reducing the population of Africa and he doesn’t hide this fact it’s on Youtube.
    This is what i like about the Chinese they kicked 5 nations out of their country in 55 days, it was either that or they would not leave alive, they went packing because they were drugging them with opium, 120 million Chinese were hooked on Opium, even to this day they have never forgotten it and they certainly do not trust the West, but the Africans have forgotten slavery and now with bold words calls America and the West her Friends. with all what she said about France and all what she said about the West trying to put Africa down she is DELUSIONAL
    and a Blind Guide.

  6. WHAT IS THIS AMBASSADOR TALKING ABOUT???? AMERICAN BEING AFRICA’S BFF?? REALLY! THIS LADY HAS BEEN BOUGHT AND PAID FOR.

  7. I love you Ambassador Arikana. You are beautiful outwardly and inwardly. You are a very wise woman, with beautiful words of wisdom. I hope our people (the world)listen to you and follow in your leadership values. The world would be a better place, if everyone had a Heart full of love and care. God Bless Africa.

  8. It’s big time for Africa to Unite cause we start to see the beginnings of race-base societies in USA , Europe and Asia..thanks God Africans have Home to go to anytime things go south…

  9. I would to see Julius Malema and this Sister be President and Vice President of Africa. Also I would to see the Country Change its name.

  10. Yes the interviewer did not want to explore France taking 85% of these African countries income leaving them into poverty and causing immigration
    Obviously the wast cannot b corrupt just Africa
    Africa please stop going business with France

  11. Well, the only fair grounds in partnering to fight against terrorism is if US can help Africa fight economic terrorism. The US is part of this worse form of terrorism! Western corporations refuse to pay up on taxes,so they are looting and going Scott free! Toxic substances spewed recklessly into drinking water sources polluting air and people are sick and dying on a daily basis, colossal theft of mineral resources literally day and night, this must be RESET but first, culprits must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of who they are! We need an African Criminal Court!!! ASAP! For Africa to continue partnering with any country, it must be on fair grounds! Only!

  12. The Ambassador lives in Tennessee! How can see speak for Africa? She don’t even live in Africa ! She should be living there to be speaker for Africa!

  13. Yes she is very beautiful but she’s very naive and stupid white Americans will never look at Africans as equal wake up lady

  14. Ambassador.you are a beautiful
    classy lady. What a beautiful heart
    that you have. You are. a gift to
    The diaspora people. I will continue to pray for you.and your
    mission.

  15. Ignorant African leaders talking about friendship with America or any western world your enemy Will never and can never be your friend

  16. Just like there can NEVER be a good relationship between a mongoose and a cobra snake, there can NEVER be a good relationship between the usa and any group of blakk people.
    The europoid run governments and societies are our mortal enemies.
    Since the edomite came out of the womb, it has been the enemy of all blakk people of this planet.
    I’M JUST SAYING….

  17. THEY NEVER TALK ABOUT REPARATIONS FOR SLAVERY! LET`S START THERE BEFORE WE CAN HAVE NORMAL RELATIONS1 WE WOKE YET!!!

  18. You can’t fix a problem if you can’t get to the “root” of the problem. Africa has a lot of problems. And, the world has thrown many, many bandages at the problems; nothing has worked.

    The world is tired of helping. Aid is dwindling now and will soon stop. One day soon you will have “another” drought and the rest of the world won’t bat an eye. No more “We Are The World”, no more shipments of food. SOMEONE HAS TO SAY IT: It’s time to let stupid people die.

    The “cry” from the people is that Global Warming did this to us — America and the West should give us money. Well America didn’t come to your land and cut down every single tree. America didn’t suck every living thing off your land. America didn’t watch the rains carry your top soil to the ocean. It’s easy to blame your problems on someone else. But if you’re waiting for someone else to fix your problems…it’s not going to happen.

  19. Views expressed you here with this b**** saying being friends with America what she does fail to realize is that the most high God is going to destroy America and some of Africans to

  20. Afrikaans must build their military and became a superpower!! That way no country can bully them for their resources!!

  21. DID SHE SAY SHE LIVES IN AMERICA….OK YA’LL THIS LADY IS FULL OF IT! THE ONLY TIME AMERICA HELPED AFRICA IS WHEN THEY GAVE THEM WHITE JESUS AND TOOK THEIR LAND AND RESOURCES.

  22. We are disrespected because we as a people don’t RESPECT OURSELVES. Our actions and behavior let us look like we are indeed a DARK CONTINENT and a backwards people. What PRESIDENT trump had SAID was well said. No political LEADERS had SAID any thing about trump remarks. Madame ambadossor, we as AFRICANS are in love with our enemies. After your ENEMIES have desprected you, you still want to give HIM RESPECT. You love the COLONIZERS but all they want is to SECRETLY kill us. CAN’T AFRICANS, all 54 countries join FORCES and build each other other? All of these wars and killings that are happening on the continent of Africa are conspiracies of the COLONIZERS in order to gain CONTROL and RECOLINIZED AFRICA a second time. AFRICA wake up. Open YOUR eyes. Your LEADERS, most of them are USELESS.

  23. If President Trump holds Africa and its people in disdain, he is continuing what all his predecessors and friends else where have done and doing. Some do it smiling and achieve the same results.

  24. That woman knows damn well Donald duck said he wants immigrants from Norway Sweden, basically white people from Europe and from south america

  25. America is Africas biggest ally!!!? with all due respect this woman talks a good game and there is alot of back to africa rhetoric she throws around to hook unsuspecting africans and african americans but either she is extremely naiive or a well trained professional liar. Either way she is part of the white supremacist imperialistic system. They enslave our people for centuries, destablize countries and kill our leaders, use millitary force through africom, cause wars, install puppet regimes who starve thepeople and loot our oil and diamands among other resources . but they are our allies, really? I knew they was something fishy about her , glad i came across this vid. im done.

  26. Ever since I have bin on this earth I never knew any. Amarcan government people to help black. African country all I see they do is betray it’s leader’s and keep the people of. Africa poor look at Abama he is a mixt person what as he did for is grandmother Africa nothing what so ever.

  27. A man, woke all of u" up! And his name is mazi nnamdi kalu. And know one, wanna listing to his demand! About English and there puppet Hausa fulanis, that they choose as the slave drivers of the great tribe of igbos(Hebrews)Israelites(Africa). Well keep ur good work, it is the beginning of the salvation. But without the freedom of this tribe of people, called biafra nation(igbos Hebrews) Israelites African! Nothing can be fix and stand, only to gave bath to biafra the Hebrew(igbo) tribe, can solve the problems of Africa, Mark my words. …

  28. Naivety is needed to think the rulers of the greatest global heist ever will sprout humility.lol Why don’t the brilliant Africans in the US do what Indians do? Go back to AFRICA to build their countries instead of being in a place where there’s no social status, tension with US BORN BLACKS, and only status from constant work’s money. Look at Botswana!!

  29. This white woman is just tryna get the dr. to down trump but the dr is so classy in how she handled the situation

  30. Brilliant daughter of Africa. Having watched a lot of her interviews I think she’s been too economical with the truth on this one, but then again international politics and diplomacy is nothing but duplicity, theft, self aggrandizement, and deception to gain an upper hand.
