[I]I think the answer is 'Yes'.
There does not need to be a particular argument to support 'living in another country'.
There are 35MM+ of us who openly declare ourselves to be of unknown African ancestry, wholly or in part.
Plus a similar number (it is estimated) who 'pass' knowingly or unknowingly.
If there is to be an argument, it will likely have to a plea for admittance.
Is America the best place to achieve whatever we consider success as Black people (the collective)?
Yes. Where else would you suggest?
What arguments can be made for living in another country?
Any argument. They are all valid.
What are the disadvantages or benefits?
I don't see a benefit.
The first disadvantage I see is my/our loss of citizenship.
The second is our loss of equity from the investment we, and our ancestors have made in the currently most powerful civilization in the world.
It will be a disadvantage to have impose ourselves on the population and government of some nation that may not welcome the imposed 'diversity'.
If there is no place to "be"...... then what would that created government.... that societal structure look like?
If there is 'no place to be', we would be here.
It would look the same.
