I read this article a while back but I just happened to find it again, here’s a summary:
The author is of African descent and claims that white people should stop telling people of color to leave the country. Here’s the thing, the author states that they do complain about the nation but think it’s racist when white people tell them that if they don’t like this country, then they should leave.
The author tends to generalize white people in this article frequently. There are a few valid points, but there’s one quote here that really threw me off. “And there are more [people of color] that won’t allow [white people] to treat us like second class citizens.” I agree that this nation still does have its issues when it comes to race, but so does almost every single nation in the entire world. And right now in the United States, minorities have more privilege than ever. Minorities in other nations aren’t so fortunate. Just take a look at what colleges are doing all over the nation, or how even a small politically incorrect comment could lead to being fired from a job.
The author states that “This is my country as much as it is yours. So either work with us or get the fuck out of the way. Feel the love yet?” Quite a hypocritical statement, isn’t it?
