On Hoeh Accusing African Americans of Being Selfish for Staying in the USA

Saw LCG minister Wallace G. Smith's blog about an article which details the role many Africans had in exporting slaves to the New World.
In 1999, for instance, President Mathieu Kerekou of Benin astonished an all-black congregation in Baltimore by falling to his knees and begging African-Americans’ forgiveness for the “shameful” and “abominable” role Africans played in the trade. Other African leaders, including Jerry Rawlings of Ghana, followed Mr. Kerekou’s bold example.
This only shows how stupid Herman Hoeh was to accuse African Americans of being selfish for staying in the only country they have ever known.
