“olivia jade trying to talk about the dangers of white privilege is like a smoker talking about the dangers of lung cancer”
Olivia Jade seems to have been slammed at the hands of social media users due to her recent posts on the untimely death of George Floyd and the rampant racism across the US.
According to a report by Us Magazine, Olivia claims, “As a person who was born into privilege based on my skin color & financial situation, I was not always aware that these issues were still so present.”
Feeling the effects of this act, the star further claimed, “And that makes me feel awful. But that also fuels me. It makes me want to learn more and do more and be better for all my beautiful Black friends and any other person who faces discrimination.”
She later went on to say, “I’m not racist and I never have been but I need to speak up about this because just not being racist isn’t enough. It outrages me. It makes me feel sick. It brings me to tears. THERE SHOULD NOT BE SUCH A GAP BETWEEN PEOPLE LIKE THIS. We need to support and stand up and speak and use our WHITE PRIVILEGE TO STOP THIS.”
