After receiving a barrage of compliantss about Colin Kaepernick, Adrian Foster responds loud and clear: Arian Foster Speaks to the Leave The Country If You Don’t Like Crew

Arian Foster Speaks to the Leave The Country If You Don’t Like Crew

Arian Foster doesn’t necessarily agree with Colin Kaepernick not standing for anthem, but he does agree that racial issues are running rampant in our country.

Some white people love to say leave the country when black people are just asking for better treatment, Foster destroys that argument in two paragraphs.

“What do you mean? Where can I go?,” Foster began. “African Americans are the only people in America who don’t have a heritage, because of slavery. We’re descendants of genocide, and people don’t like to talk about that. It’s the truth. We’re the descendants of genocide. So when you say, ‘You can leave,’ where to? I don’t know where my people come from. Am I from the Congo? Am I from Kenya? Am I from the Ivory Coast?

“I have no idea where my lineage comes from, and that is a huge issue as to why there’s a self-identity crisis in our neighborhoods. We’re taught to hate ourselves for generations. And people are just quick to say, ‘Get over it. Get over it. Slavery happened a long time ago.’ I grew up in a domestically violent household. There are effects that I grew up with and had to deal with emotional issues growing up with domestic violence in my house. That’s one generation removed. Now here’s 300 years of slavery, you’ve seen your people get people, have them told you aren’t anything. Written in laws that they’re three-fifths a human being for 300 years. You’re telling me there’s no psychological effects that won’t trickle down in your bloodline? Of course there are. Until this country addresses is, this will happen.”

White privilege is about putting blinders on and just telling people of color they should be happy with what they got.

Also if they are that upset about what people of color want changed in the country why don’t they leave and go somewhere else?

Don’t hold your breath for that.
