‘White Friends, Pay For My Therapy’: Asian Woman Wants Whites To Pay For Years Of ‘Institutional Racism’

An Asian woman believes that she has suffered from “institutional racism” and as such, she feels that she shouldn’t bear the financial burden of therapy, but that white people should pay for it.

An Asian woman has asked white people to pay for her therapy because she claims living with them makes her ill.

Rinna Rem, from Portland, Oregon, says the stress of being Thai-Cambodian in a predominantly white city means she has to spend $100 a month on treatment.

After suffering ‘institutional racism’ for most of her life, she decided to launch a crowdfunding page, telling white people: ‘Now it’s your turn to pay.’

Ms Rem, 29, started her campaign less than three weeks ago but has already received almost $1,500 in donations.

On the fundraising page – called White Friends, Pay For My Therapy – she wrote: ‘Dear white friends, I grew up in and live in the [Portland] area.

‘The stress of living as a Thai-Cambodian woman in such a white city replete with constant interpersonal and institutional racism has a big toll on my health and wellbeing.

‘I see an amazing therapist to cope with this s**t, but I spend $100/month on therapy for bi-weekly appointments. Now it’s your turn to pay!’

She added: ‘I want to live a healthy, happy life. I want to have a healthy, happy family in the future too. Help me pay for therapy to deal with the stress of racism. Please don’t let racism shorten my life or kill me.’

Ms Rem claims that stress from everyday racism can raise people’s risk of contracting diseases, and says it can lead to mental health problems.

The 29-year-old claims to have Marfan Syndrome – a hereditary condition which causes people to grow taller than usual, with abnormally long and slender limbs, fingers and toes.

She also says she has overcome liver disease and is battling depression

Ms Rem added that people who ask why she does not just leave Portland are no different to those who tell foreign people to ‘go back to their own country’, adding that she should not be expected to leave her hometown and family.

She originally set out to raise $1,200, but decided to double the target after suffering abuse in the comments section of the crowdfunding page.

We should not attempt to deny that racism in any form does now exist. However, it’s clear that we have “jumped the shark” on this issue as every person of color now gets to play the part of a victim and, sadly, there are still guilty white liberals who buy into this garbage.
