The Jilt and Juxtaposition In America and Abroad



For people asking me about the difference between whites in America and whites in Europe, I remind them…


Most white Americans descend from Europe. The ones that came to settle America – after looting it from the natives and raping them – were the most conservative of Europeans at that time. In other words, they were for slavery while the ones that remained in Europe were not.


Fast forward to present day and Europeans like to proclaim how advanced they are compared to America and I’m here to refute that. Just because Europeans didn’t enslave black people, it doesn’t mean they’re not to be held accountable for what they currently practice but few dare speak out on.




And that thing is the second-tier system used to place people of color in across Europe. White Europeans won’t mortally end your existence as a person of color like white Americans will because they don’t practice this type of savagery. They ignorantly consider themselves more evolved than this tactic. Their preferred method of exercising their elitist and racist slant is providing for those not white and then conditioning them to believe that whatever they receive is sufficient.


So imagine how they view me as a black American expatriate arriving on their shores, taking it all in, and telling it like it is, un-afraid of the repercussions….
