So I just noticed that `.africa` is a gTLD. I immediately got worried about some domain names getting parked. My biggest concern was gobackto.africa. Thankfully, it looks like a well meaning blog from a quick scan of the site.

I can see racists exploiting this gTLD for no good. Someone already parked `black.power` some time ago. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/0844cf7a-b52)

@jalcine The obvious s-hole is ... registered, though parked.

(Not sure by whom. WHOIS doesn't report.)

@jalcine Also curious that "gobackto" for various other TLDs (europe, cn, in, asia) does _not_ seem to be registered.

This reminds me of other associations that become apparent in searches, with "girls" paired with various geographic designators a frequently mentioned example.
