First, it was Brexit. Now, there is Blaxit. If you are still confused, Blaxit is the opposite of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In the last few years, people of all races have been protesting in support of the racial inequality to African Americans. Some people use social media, while others wear #BlackLivesMatters clothing to spread the message.
Over time, more people have hopped on board, but we have yet to see any noticeable results from the movement’s efforts.
It took decades to legalize gay marriage and recreational marijuana. Should African Americans have to wait as long to be treated equally? Of course not!
With the new U.S. President, the next four years do not offer a lot of optimism to the majority of African Americans. This collective of feelings have birthed Blaxit.
As a measure of insurance, more Black Americans have started to expatriate from the United States.
Akon, a multi-platinum recording artist, stated that America was never built for black people. Since the birth of America, black people have struggled and suffered in all aspects of life, including interracial dating, career advancement, and personal credit.
Life for African Americans has improved within the last two decades. Although, it is still far from perfect.
Black unemployment and underemployment is still among the highest. Blacks are 2.5 times more likely to be killed by the police than whites.
Many black Americans feel alone in their local areas. So, Blaxit has became an option.
What do you think? Should Black Americans stay and fight? Or is Blaxit the more sensible solution?
