With the whole world in turmoil over various levels of racism at the moment, the “Go back to Africa” statement seems to be one rising in popularity. In a defiant statement, Larry Mitchell from Indiana created a GoFundMe page where he’s accepting money from racists so they can actually send him back to Africa.

The page reads; “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.”

He’s raised just over $200 so far, and people have left suitably racist comments with their donations. One guy donated $45 and wrote, “You better not come back.” Nice.

A white guy named Roy Sisson added, “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.”

Carla T jumped to Mitchell’s support, writing, “Mr. Mitchell, I am not donating out of hate, or to send you away. But I am donating because I just spent a month traveling through Africa, and found the most wonderful, loving, warm and generous humans I have ever met. I wish you the best making your dreams come true, and I hope that you find goodwill here in the US, as well.”

It looks like racists are just as stingy as they are racist…
