"Michael Jackson's brother has come under fire for plans to invest in a £2.4 billion plan to build a luxury resort and slavery theme park in Badagry, Nigeria, a historic port town that was the last departure point for thousands of slaves leaving Africa at the height of the transatlantic trade in humans."
OK how do I say this without offending anybody. Yes slavery was a very very painful part of our history but to make a "slavery theme park" you have to be kidding me.
"But some historians have condemned the project, which would include a theme park with a slave ship replica, along with casinos, shops, a golf course and condominiums."
Would anyone really want to put their kids on a slave ship replica ??? Um no. £2.4 billion is a lot of money which to me can be put towards better use.
