ohh the irony

"You see for these children, Kenya is the place where mom and dad came from, not where they themselves will go back to. They are here[America] to stay. They may not be Americans, they are not African Americans, but when they visit Africa, they realize how American they are."


This line i think speaks out to all—if not, most—-children of immigrants. Replace Kenya(n) with Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Congo, Morocco, Egypt…name it.

“I get it. My teacher stopped treating me like I was special once too. I think of the fourth grade me when I hear of white people who fear minorities or immigrants, Tea Partyers in a frenzy about how government doesn’t belong to them anymore, and people complaining that gay and lesbian couples will ruin marriage. When the phrase “Happy Holidays” and the idea of a non-white Santa makes a certain segment of the population lose their shit, a part of me gets it…Your childish tactics reveal that your privilege is waning.”
