Watch This: Day in the Life of an Asian in America’s Most RACIST Town

Hey y’all! I just wanted to share this video I thought was interesting. It shows some of the hard reality of racism in America, but … It also shows how the majority of people, like anywhere one travels, are decent people. Even in America’s “most racist town.” Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

  1. While I do agree that there are always good people, even in the most desperate situation, I feel it says a lot that the majority of Americans who are preparing to move away from the USA are Black or other people of colour. They’re feeling like there has to be something better than it being culturally acceptable to have your fellow citizens being killed by the police and other overt racial violence that makes them fear for their lives and their families. Yes, they know it’s a big challenge to move to another country, but they are willing to do it so they can get a better life. Even though I’m white, I am completely against the systemic racism in the USA and clearly so many people are hurting that I wanted to move because I wanted to live someplace that was more democratic and respectful. I was starting to think all the racial violence and other violence in the US was normal. You know it’s not, right?

    • I completely agree with you on that! There’s no denying the country’s racist past and systemic structure, and I’d say a majority of Americans would agree (definitely the minorities). As a New World country, I think the US struggled with intolerance the most, being the first to gain independence and cover these new waters. Maybe we stands out, but I have definitely heard similar xenophobic and racist stories coming from most other countries as well, and this is a bit of a human problem (violence and descrimination). Places like Brazil, France, Russia, the UK, even countries in Africa where this kind of thing happens frequently. (As a mixed person, I’ve felt most racially comfortable in Brazil where most people are also mixed, so I get black Americans feeling more comfortable in Africa, Caribbean). And I totally understand people who want to move or leave because of the country’s issues, which it has many. I have wanted to leave many a time and I can only imagine how visitors may feel! For those that can leave and find a better home, more power to them. As Americans, we are probably our own biggest critics, I certainly was. (Trust me, many Americans wish they could move up to Canada too). Traveling overseas has helped me to gain appreciation for my home in a weird way, a thing that so many here have lost. I think that has created part of the problem, that was we criticize more than appreciate what our nation is supposed to be and could be, a land of immigrants where all are welcome and contribute to greatness. We all know the terrible tendencies of the US, it’s on the news all the time. Here I wanted to show that in reality, for most people, on a daily basis, it’s not the way it’s portrayed on the news. That most people are nice. That most the country isn’t racist (even if they’re a little misinformed). Most cops even aren’t racist. There are countries where intolerance is a lot worse. There are places where it’s a lot better. Most of us our trying to change, and I think that says a lot. But you’re right, there’s little normal about it the present or past of America, and we’ve got a long way to go.

      • Well, also having lived in the UK, France, and learning a lot about Russia, I can definitely talk all day about the racism/xenophobia those places as well. Every culture makes their own stamp on racism and xenophobia and as a TCK, I do like exploring the differences, even in my own passport countries. The US is certainly far more polarized than it used to be. Comedian Tony Arnold who has openly spoke out against Trump said it was like the US had an abusive father (and he would know, he has been abused, but not by his father) so naturally people responded in the way they would if they were in an abusive situation. I guess I always knew that there is always a way out of a country because I have lived in 5 countries now

      • You have a lot more experience than i do living in other countries. It’s a shame things got so polarized recently. Just as individuals we have to do our part to break those barriers one at a time! Great comments as usual 😊

      • It really is a shame. It is amazing how individuals can make a difference for either better or worse
