I wonder who writes her speeches. I’m sure they hired somebody from Harvard or Oxford. She’s supposed to rub people right, she’s a paid for, political poster child. Isn’t that obvious ?    Firs

This is so ridiculous. First of all this is clearly not her speech and it does not seems like she really mean it. ***** is just reading the script. We ******* need to stop blaming white people fo

I usually think her speeches are hit or miss, but this one was truly great!

I hope it helps people realise we're all human and should be treated the same regardless of our skin colour!

She has a point. Definitely. The thing that I do not understand is this "white people this, white people that" narrative. Slavery was ended two centuries ago and some people still behave that it is a problem until now. Yes, there might be racists (white against black) people as well as there are racists (black vs white) people. The hell. We all can learn. This is not about slavery nor racism, this should be about being decent human being. I encountered a person of colour the other day in IG/FB comment section. The lady stated that all white people are racist because of slavery in the US. I genuinely asked her what my white family did in the US since my ancestors lived in Czech for centuries. How could she said that all white people are the same racist people that hurt her or her family. Not a single black soul answered. Everyone attacked me for being Czech. Since when Czech people colonised America? Brits, Spanish people, French, Dutch people, Swedes did, not Czech people. Therefore, I genuinely think that all people can learn. Both sides have share of their mistakes and we all can learn from those mistakes. It starts with individuals. Yes, of course there are many examples of white people being racist towards POC. I do not defend them. They should be held accountable. As well as there are many examples of black people being racist towards white people. They should be held accountable as well. And yes, white people enslaved Africans, yes. However, those who did it aren't those who live in these days. Also, if I am not mistaken, there were kingdoms in Africa that were fighting and enslaving people of their enemies. How is that nobody talks about it? How is that nobody talks about selling slaves to the white colonists? How is that nobody is talking about slavery in ancient China or Greek? How is that nobody talks about slavery in Latin America (it is said that slavery there was worse than in US)? Let's all learn instead of pointing finger at a particular group and blame everything on it.
