Seeking Asylum - A documentary film

I was browsing through my Facebook news feed and came across this documentary, Seeking Asylum, on The Nomad-ness Travel Tribe page. The film was created by Darnell Lamont Walker to raise worldwide awareness about the tyranny against Black people in America by the powers that be in America. 

Is it time to leave America? 

Many of us are feeling the same uncomfortable feelings and pondering this question, so thought this film was worth sharing. 

Seeking Asylum: A Documentary (video)

Note ** if you have watched this, and remember JJ, the homeless fella in Amsterdam who asked for help in locating his family, after 8 months, his only surviving relative; his niece Monica was located. 
She contacted the writer saying that everyone else has died, including the sister he talks about in the film. The writer is working hard to get Monica over to Amsterdam to find her uncle and maybe even get him home to Philadelphia as soon as possible.

Persecution, according to U.S. asylum law, must be on account of a person’s race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion, Jorjani wrote. Immigration courts have said that violence by police officers in other nations, including frequent incidents of unjust imprisonment, rape, assault, beatings and confinement, constitutes persecution.

P.S Costa Rica also provides asylum for those suffering from persecution due to race.
