Nestride Yumga experienced real corruption and civil rights abuses in Africa. Then she came to America, the land of opportunity, education, and freedom. So when Black Lives Matter protests declared America guilty of systemic racism and injustice, she knew she had to defend her adoptive country.

Script:
When I got out of bed the morning of May 31, 2020 after a sleepless night, I knew I had to do something.
I didn’t know what. Or what I would say.
I saw the protests and the riots. I had heard all the accusations about racism, racial injustice, and police brutality. I was horrified by what happened to Mr. George Floyd. But I was also horrified about what was happening to my adopted country, my beloved America.
And I just couldn’t take it anymore. I couldn’t keep it inside.
So I went to one of these protests and I did the most American thing I could think of: I told the protesters exactly what I thought.
I admit it-I wasn’t very diplomatic.
Maybe that’s why my remarks went viral. You can find them easily on MNpost.
Many people admired me for what I said. Many hated me. I don’t care either way. I didn’t do this for me. I did it for America, the greatest country in the world.
And I know what I’m talking about.
I was born in Cameroon, a country in West Africa. My family lived day to day, simply trying to survive. When I hear people talk about corruption and civil rights abuses here in the US, I shake my head. They never lived in Cameroon-or anywhere within a thousand miles of Cameroon, that’s for sure.
I came to the United States for what I could never have in my native land: freedom and happiness, the opportunity to get a good education, to earn a good living, to build a good life for myself. And that’s exactly what I’ve done. That’s what America has allowed me to do. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
Since coming to the United States, I have trained in nursing and worked as a visiting nurse assistant. Recently, I received my master’s in health care administration, and I am now working as a health care executive.
My career ambition is to close the gap in health care outcomes and design new and better strategies to ensure that under-served populations get the health care services they need. I also serve as a reservist in the United States Air Force. And yes, I look forward to getting married and starting a family.
My life is grounded in a simple truth: There’s no better place to live for anyone, of any race, than America. And everybody outside of America knows it. That’s why they line up, like I did, at US embassies around the world, hoping for a chance to come here to live and work. This is truly the land of opportunity.
So, don’t go around trashing it. I don’t care where you come from. Or what your complaint is. Or what your skin color is. I’m not having it.
And that brings me back to May 31st and that park in Washington, DC.
Mr. Floyd should not have died as he did. But make no mistakes: Black Lives Matter and their allies are using George Floyd’s death to split Americans apart at the very moment we should be coming together. They are striking at the heart of this country-twisting the knife of white guilt with one hand, and black resentment with the other.
These protests are not about empowering black people. They are about disempowering black people.
Because when the fires stop burning, all that remains is hopelessness, anger, and shame. That’s not empowerment. That’s oppression.
Look at the innocent victims-the business owners, many of them black, who have lost their life’s work to looting and arson. What are they supposed to do now? Who cleans up the graffiti and the shattered glass? Who rebuilds? Who, after seeing their dreams go up in smoke, even wants to?

She indirectly brings up a very good point about immigration. People on the Left are always whining about "migrants" crossing our Southern border illegally because they are "seeking asylum", as if by doing so we are obligated to give it to them. This is very unfair to everyone else in the world who doesn't have this option. If non-citizens truly are seeking and deserving of asylum within the United States, then let them go to the U.S. Embassy in their home country and apply for it the right way.

If your teacher has assigned this, it's important to understand that Prager U isn't a learning institution but a conservative propaganda outlet. By all means, watch to learn about your teacher's biases, but then go hear from the other side, as well. Philosophy Tube, Contrapoints and Big Joel are good places to start. In fact, Big Joel has a couple of videos about the problems, both humorous and serious, with Prager U.

loved this video. i don’t support the argument of modern systemic racism. but i’m confused when i see the american eviction rate of minorities. minorities have a higher eviction rate than people who are white. it’s argued that the reason for this is bc of systemic racism. but i think wuts failed to be considered is that the majority of people who rent are minorities. they already make up the majority of renters so their ratio is already higher. that’s what causes the high eviction rates is high renting rates. not racism. but then that leads to a question of why do minorities have higher renting rates? how can i prove that this is not systemic racism issue?? i’m stuck, ideas would be super appreciated!!

George Floyd would have died in the back of the cruiser from his overdose. The *trained knee technique* present or not, would not have changed anything. Fentynol slows your breathing. He was losing control of it the moment he popped that speedball before getting out of the car. He was complaining about not being able to breathe BEFORE he himself ASKED to be put on the ground!

Not the best country. That’s just arrogant. A lot of people from places come for money but that’s all really. People are so closed off and private - Basic things are unaffordable like school and healthcare. So many rules regulations stigmas and it’s a large place with a lot of complexity. Israël provides me with free school and great education. And I can open a hot dog stand without a hundred lisenses.

Now Brazil have a great president, a military conservative that is making the whole difference, but the mainstream try to destroy him, the same happens to Trump. I love my USA (this is my country), I will not let marxists taking control of of our lifes and thoughts, and I hope that the Brazil remains free of marxism, because the people choose it.
