This question isn't really answerable unless you tell us whether you will be living off your own money or will need to seek employment in your new home.

I don't know jack about moving to another country, but I do remember reading this article a while back. Thought I'd link you to it.

If you want to stay in the Western and Northern Hemispheres, I would suggest either Bermuda or the Cayman Islands. Both of them are majority non-white and both of them are developed. I say this strictly from the perspective of someone who has visited these places as a tourist; I have no idea what it would entail to move there as a permanent resident.

Wherever you go. Consider that you will be considered an American before anything else. Not some long lost brother come home like the prodigal son. You will be a foreigner. That could work for you or against you.

Liberia.

A country found by Black Americans.
The culture is heavily influenced by Black American culture.
English is the common language.
But too poor by American standard.

Remember that the OP is from the US and this means you have to include the Alicia Keys types into your list too. Yes, I know its ridiculous to consider someone like Alicia Keys black, but that's how it is in the USA. Those are the type of people that usually have an identity crisis when they travel outside the USA and realize they are not seen as what the USA made them believe.

I don't have to elaborate or explain anything to you.

Lol, this is the type of reasoning you develop when you get all your information about the world/Black people from websites like stormfront or chimpmania. I showed this to my friend who is Black and has traveled and he couldn't stop laughing.

Yes, because that's what I said I was looking for...To be embraced like the prodigal son. Maybe you should re-read what I've typed.
