The racism against certain racial groups in America is at a high as politician Ilhan Omar is blatantly able to make remarks against White men publicly. Furthermore, Twitter users, regardless of their race, are finding this remark to be extremely offensive. It is in no way helpful to show prejudice against a specific gender or race.
According to Sportskeeda, Ilhan Omar, the US Representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, made a controversial statement recently. She asserts that the nation should show more concerns about the actions of white men, as they are responsible for a significant portion of deaths in the country.
Furthermore, the remarks are facing sharp criticism, with some highlighting the double standards that would arise if a White politician made similar comments about the Black community. In addition to this, others are questioning her stance given her marriage to a white man.

Several individuals on Twitter are calling her out stating that this isn’t “reverse racism” it is straight up racism. Furthermore, White men are coming out stating that she has more privilege and power than the average White man as she is a politician.
I was gonna say it’s hella ironic that like 8/10 they date a white guy and at the same time hold these views. Then don’t bring it up with us.

Can’t agree less. Don’t understand why she’s in the US government.
