This Indiana man who is fed up with racists telling blacks to “go back to Africa” has set up a GoFundMe account demanding that racists put their money where their mouth is.
“Send me ‘back’ to Africa fund… If you want me to go back to Africa I will gladly go… you can help make your dream and mine come true… accepting all donations… KKK…and anyone else with like mind thinking are welcome to donate… Thank you.. God bless you and America… #putyourmoneywhereyourhateis”, Larry Mitchell wrote on his GoFundMe page.
So far the page has only raised $220.
There have, however, been some hate filled messages from those who have donated to Mitchell.
“You better not come back,” wrote one person who donated.
Other donors were supportive of Mitchell and shared his disgust at the level of racism in this country.
“Fellow citizen, please do with this money what you will. I hope you spend it here, but if you choose to visit another land that’s ok too. Screw the bigots, I think this is both hilarious and thought-provoking,” wrote another person.
Mitchell told The Daily News that he was inspired to start the GoFundMe page after hearing vile and racially offensive insults against blacks after the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.
“It kind of shocked me, because we just celebrated Fourth of July and to come back the next week and see people saying ‘Go Back to Africa,’” he explained. “If you want me to go ‘back’ to Africa, then pay for it.”
Mitchell says he’s never been to Africa, so people telling him to “go back” is especially insulting.
Mitchell, a part-time forklift driver, says he’ll go to Africa if he reaches his $100,000 fundraising goal.
Okay, so I think he has the right idea in mind. If you have people where you live that keep saying to you “Go Back To Africa” I think they should pay for it.
Personally, I have never been to Africa, so I guess the saying doesn’t really apply to those of us who have never been there. Can’t “go back” if you have never been”‘.
But this is an interesting idea. If the white people’s ancestors took our ancestors from our homeland – isn’t it appropriate that we ask their children to pay for the children of the slaves to go back to Africa?
In one of my latest posting (Ghana Opens it’s doors to all African Americans -come home) I explained that Ghana, Africa has opened the doors for all African Americans to come home.
So, there you go…if you want us to get out of America. I say okay, no problem. Just a few things to do…YOU pay for the one-way, “$780.00” ticket to Ghana, Africa for each of my family members, then you buy my house at fair market value right now, you’ll have to pay each working person in my house for one full year of their employment (whatever that is), and we are out of here. Simple?!
So what are your thoughts……
