Two Georgia women have hatched a plan to end racism. They’re creating an all-black community in central Georgia on 96.71 acres of land, in hopes that by segregating themselves in an all-black community, they will be able to effectively deal with “400 years of racial oppression.”
America was founded 244 years ago.
Breitbart reports – They are calling it Freedom, Georgia, and draw their inspiration from Wakanda, the fictional comic-book country that was the setting for the movie “Black Panther.”
Ashley Scott, a realtor from Stonecrest, Georgia, who was driven to seek therapy by her reaction to the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery, a young Black man jogging in a white neighborhood, said that after several sessions she realized that her problem was 400 years of racial oppression and trauma dating back to the establishment of slavery in North America. Her friend Renee Walters, an entrepreneur and investor, has joined Scott in her efforts to create a segregated city.
They call their segregated city plan The Freedom Georgia Initiative. After realizing that racism against Blacks in America can only be fixed by segregating themselves, two Black Georgia women came together to create a Blacks-only community as a way to combat the evil White man in America.
Ashley Scott explains on Blavity– I sought counseling from a Black therapist and it helped. It helped me to realize that what we as Black people are suffering from is racial trauma. We are dealing with systemic racism. We are dealing with deep-rooted issues that will require more than protesting in the streets. It will take for us as a people, as Atlanta rapper and activist Killer Mike so eloquently put, “To plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize.” So that’s what I and my good friend Renee Walters, an entrepreneur and investor, did.
We began to look for ways to change the world for the better in whatever small way we could. We wanted to make some kind of difference that could ensure the safety of our Black sons and Black husbands when they went about their lives just breathing and being. We wanted to do something to amass Black power to affect real change.
The women discovered a city in Georgia for sale on Facebook and jumped at the opportunity to turn it into a segregated city.
Something new is happening! We discovered the viral post about Toomsboro, Georgia, for sale and we joined several Facebook groups discussing building Black cities and new Black Wall Streets — and we were here for it! It was clear to me that developing new cities was necessary because these old ones, even with strong Black leadership, have too many deep-rooted problems.
The two women with a dream to develop a fully-segregated city explains:
We figured we could try to fix a broken system or we could start fresh. Start a city that could be a shining example of being the change you want to see. We wanted to be more involved in creating the lives we really want for our Black families. And maybe, just maybe, create some generational wealth for ourselves by investing in the land. Investing in creating a community that is built around our core values and beliefs.
A community built with green environmentally safe and eco-friendly building materials that honor Mother Nature and all Her glory! A community that is self-sufficient and thriving with a living food system built by Black farmers to provide food security for all its neighbors. A community that prioritizes diversity and inclusion by hiring BIPOC and women vendors, suppliers and contractors. A community that boasts accessible spaces for all people. A community where our Black sons, our Black husbands, our Black women could make it home without being murdered by police.
We made a PowerPoint presentation the day after we left the “Toomsboro for Sale” open house. We called our like-minded friends and family. We impressed upon them the urgent power of now. We brought 19 families together on one accord during a series of online meetings. We started an LLC. We considered a field and we bought it. We bought 96.71 acres of land!
Black Democrat Georgia state lawmaker Vernon Jones has a different approach to helping Blacks in his state, and it doesn’t involve segregation, but instead, involves supporting President Trump in his re-election bid, to keep the progress he’s made on behalf of Black Americans moving forward.
In April, Jones tweeted: “I’m a Georgia state representative and lifelong Democrat. But in this election, I’ll be casting my vote for @realDonaldTrump. I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Party left me.”
“President Donald J. Trump has a solid record of accomplishments in the black community. His leadership and successful legislative agenda has done more to improve black lives and their communities than any other president since the Civil Rights and Voters Rights Act,” Mr. Jones said during a Black Voices for Trump discussion at the White House.

America’s tried segregation before…it didn’t work out very well for anyone. Segregated cities were probably not what Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned in his plan for a united and color-blind America.
