AN ASIAN-AMERICAN WOMAN WANTS WHITE PEOPLE TO PAY FOR MAKING HER SICK?


 An Oregon woman has raised nearly $1,500 to pay for illnesses she claims were brought on by being an Asian American living in a predominantly white city.
“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 well being,” according to the YouCaring posting by Rinna Rem.
The heading of her crowdfunding appeal is: “White Friends, Pay For My Therapy.”
Rem claims to be 29 and suffering from depression and the connective-tissue disorder Marfan’s Syndrome. From Sept. 10 through Tuesday, she had raised $1,495.
“I’m 29 and really tired,” she wrote. 
“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.”
