I remember the first time someone told me to go back to Africa. I was about 11 years old and quite confused, because for all I knew, I was from New Jersey.
It seems as though the "Go back to Africa" sentiment is a popular saying among racist people. And now one man wants people to donate to his GoFundMe page so he can do just that: go back to Africa.
Larry Mitchell, of Indiana, created his GoFundMe page and is accepting money from racists so they can send him back to Africa.
"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, Skin Heads and anyone else with like mind thinking are welcome to donate … Thank you.. God bless you and America … #putyourmoneywhereyourhateis," Mitchell states on the page.
So far he's raised a little over $200, and people have left comments along with their donations. Someone named "fedup whiteguy" left $45 and told him, "You better not come back." But there are other people who have applauded Mitchell.
"Where are all you people at? I constantly read comments online from thousands of people saying they will gladly pay the way back to Africa. $25 in 5 days is all? Put your money where your mouths are. No wonder he wants to go you cannot even trust white people to commit to their hate," a white guy named Roy Sisson wrote.
See, people want to hate, but they don't want to send us back to Africa. So not only are racists stupid, but they're also cheap.
