If people are all going to head for wherever there ancestors came from, the USA is going to be almost empty. It may not have been snarky but it is an incredibly simplistic viewpoint. The first major movement of Africans being brought to America was about 350 years ago. To use that as a barometer for one's current choices is IMO inane.

IMO The question is equivalent to asking if someone will consider no longer listening to jazz, blues, rock, R&B, hip-hop, reggae and almost all forms of contemporary music - since without the forced ttransfer of Africans it's likely none of them would exits.
