Immigrant Rally Says White People Need To “Feel Discomfort”

ImmigrantRallyFlyer“If you’re white, be ok with knowing that you may not be trusted because of what you look like. It takes time to build that trust, you may need to sit with that discomfort when trying to be an ally” reads part of a flyer that was being passed out at a rally to support “immigrants” and “refugees” in Portland last month.

And, apparently, by saying you don’t see color, this oppresses people and denies them their experiences. The muslim head scarf, called a hijab, apparently empowers women. Don’t question someone who thinks they are oppressed, as that just oppresses them further. And last, but certainly not least, don’t treat others as you wish to be treated, but treat them how they wish to be treated.

One of the MCs of the rally was Kayse Jama, of the Center For Intercultural Organizing, who says it’s racist to do background checks on the Syrian “refugees”, and encourages the crowd to call Oregon Senator’s Wyden and Merkley and tell them to oppose the bill.

Another speaker was a crazed Black Panther guy who goes off on a rant about white people, capitalism, “patriarchy”, and “neo colonialism”.

Joseph Santos-Lyons, of the Asian Pacific American Network Of Oregon (APANO), says white people rely on fear to maintain the status quo, and are insecure about multi culturalism and interfaiths.

An instructor at University Of Oregon’s “Labor & Education Research” department, Raahi Reddy, claims that Donald Trump wants to imprison Japanese Americans.

Andrea Paluso, of Family Forward Oregon, poses the question of “To my white brothers and sisters in the room, what are you willing to risk, to give up? How are you going to step forward to claim it? How are you going to step back, so that all can be seen?” after going off about “A great topic of concern and violent focus for so many men this today and always. The occupation of women’s bodies is a well exploited act of war. It is an exercise in complete domination. It leaves no grey areas. It is direct, it is violent, it is everything. Whether by force or by the powerful coercion of legislation, how can women know freedom or justice when our bodies are under the domain of angry and fearful men?”

Here are few other handouts from the rally:

    Let them suffer in proportion to the benefits they have derived on the backs of others. May America reap Her just rewards. If you want to know why I don’t care is the West Coast burns, just call Mike Feuer at the Los Angeles City Prosecutor’s office and ask him. 213-978-8100. [email protected]

    Also ask him why Mark Zuckerberg funneled millions of dollars to his son Aaron Feuer instead of to the students of New Jersey. Those guys are having a great time claiming that black students can’t learn despite Zuckerberg’s billion dollar gift, but the truth is, most of that money went to Mark’s Jewish friends instead of to the black students of New Jersey, friends like Aaron Feuer. I’m having a great time in Africa. I look forward to Africa rising. If America implodes, all the better.

      The benefits that Black people have derived on the backs of White people far outweighs the benefits Whites have derived off the backs of Black’s.

        Keep telling yourself that lie if it helps you breathe underneath that Klan hood of yours. How about we come enslave your and your descendants for 246-years, rape and main your men, women and children, and then allow our descendants to figure out is generations of slavery matters. Why don’t you reveal your address so we can start with your family? Thanks.

        • RICK0935

          First, Just because I disagree with you does not mean I am a racist or a Klan member. It is clear that you are leveraging un-evidenced allegations upon me specifically to promote your racist beliefs. Second, Black’s are NOT the only people who have been enslaved. They are just the only ones who are unable to move on from it. The Barbary Slave Trade took place from the 15th to 19th century. During this time Africans enslaved millions White European ancestors but you don’t see us threatening to enslave you and your descendants. We have moved on.
          The fact is that American blacks enjoy the highest standard of living of any black population on earth. Their average per capita income is TWENTY to FIFTY times higher than in any of the African countries from where they were displaced. It’s true that a small part of America’s wealth was built on black slavery but it is also true that American blacks are enjoying the fruits of that wealth

  • SineWaveII

    Yeah. That’s just the way to get people on your side. Make them feel uncomfortable. What a bunch of idiots.

  • Russ Gallegher

    So, they’re telling white people to ‘be OK’ with being judged by the color of their skin? That those attending their meetings will be ‘uncomfortable’ b/c they will sense a lack of trust?

  • Ghetto Tarzan

    If there is ever a right wing reactionary movement it will be the left’s fault for radicalizing people with this kind of stupidity. The left is radicalizing people in the United States and Europe everyday. Anything bad that comes from that kind of irrational and irresponsible behavior is all on them and I feel no sympathy for what might befall them.

  • kazzer66

    Do these people really want the people who work so hard to support them, to feel discomfort?

    I would not give up one thing, for these lazy whiners. Remember when people used to come to this country to work and contribute. Now they just come to take from others.

    We don’t need to import people like this, and we don’t need to support people like this.

  • Fried Chicken

    We do feel discomfort when we are forced to interact with these savages at fast food restaurants.

  • Tory

    I see race relations in this country moving backwards, NOT forward, since the sixties. These incessant whiners will NEVER allow us to move forward because they want to keep throwing the past in our faces. There are some white people in this country who had nothing to do with slavery. How many Polish-Lthuanian plantations have you heard of? And where was the term Slavic derived from? The word slavery. Maybe? They’re not the only people on this planet who have been oppressed!

  • politicallynaive

    Geez..let me go back to watching Scoobee doo reruns…

  • Lynched1

    F em, I’m very comfortable.

  • Harriet

    LMAO! Normal people turning into angry crazies. These crazies haven’t lived long enough to start telling me about my whiteness. What experiences have they had that add up to anything. I live in Chicago proper all my life. Have I chosen to insulate myself from the bad neighborhoods that world is talking about? You bet! Who moves into these neighborhoods by choice. No one! Let them clean up their own hoods, then we’ll talk!

    Lunacy.
