Guest Star Calvin describes why, as an honorably discharged American Navy man, and American tax paying citizen with no police record, he feels safer in The Philippines than America. Plus Calvin describes how his research and personal experience show how Qualified Immunity for the police and the War on Drugs has been used to mass incarcerate Black Americans even though his research shows the FBI reports higher concentrations of drug use in white Americans.

He then gives an example of the best and worse days of his life in America and why he feels safer in the Philippines and fears for his life when he boards a jet going ‘home’.

  1. Some serious virtue signaling going on here. Just another โ€œwhite man badโ€ video. With all this mob violence that is occurring, Calvin should fear for his life.

  2. Les I donโ€™t understand what you mean! If this man left USA and want to share something on his heart we should respect that. This is a wonderful channel and apparently he love mankind because he is a well traveled person. We should respect that

  3. The discussion is not about being anti white. It is about white discrimination against people of color, especially in the south. When white people travel through different countries, they expect the people to kiss their ass and expect them to speak English. You expect them to cater to them because they are white. That’s what is bs.

  4. Just subscribed.
    Im Canadian and I have a wife and Son in Leyte and weve been enjoying your content. One of the reasons I love the Filipines is no political correctness..its like cancer. They also treat white people with respect, Not special.. just respectfully, its something that no longer happens in the west. You can say whatever you want against white men here and its ok racial slurs are the norm. I have to sit through seminars at work where Im told Im a racist just for being white..that my son is a racist because he is white and there is nothing we can do to change it. You should feel some shame for bringing this progressive garbage and hate to the Filipines. My family and I are unsubscribing.

  5. I left the Philippines when I was 15years old. I never heard the word racism or prejudice until I dated my first wife who lives in Mississippi. The father took his shot gun and told me to leave his house. I left running. That was my introduction to racism. Now Iโ€™m 63 leaving in Phoenix Arizona. Racism is alive and more prevalent.

  6. A person that will not stand behind what they believe is not much of a person.. you started the conversation but you will not let people have their opinions.. you sure you don’t have a little Nazi in you?

  7. Thank you for having this discussion Dan. Thank you for acknowledging the issue and even saying you wanted to understand and learn what black people are experiencing. I appreciate you. I appreciate Calvin for sharing his experience and even going through in detail the history of my people. Excellent video!!

  8. Bruv, you don’t want to go down this route. Keep out of Religion and Politics. Your a travel blogger stick to that. I am a white man and I have experienced racism in India, Mexico, USA and in my home country the UK. So this goes on across the board but as a white man, you can’t use the racism card just because your white, racism in itself. Wake up world this is not about race it’s about the take-over bid of the communist left and they have hijacked the black movement and are using black men to do their bidding. We as men of any colour must stand together to fight not one and other but the bankster paedo elite. BLM gives millions to the Demonrat party. Rich white folk who have abused everyone. It was the republicans who abolished slavery. It was the republicans who fought for women and it’s the republicans under Trump who before the scamdemic was doing so much for the black communities. The employment was going up things getting good and will in the future. So let’s not talk about race lets talk about getting rid of the communists and take America to best future it could ever have.

  9. Racism/Slavery Began In Earnest When Europeans Basically Colonized The Rest Of The World. Racism Is Pandemic In Human Nature, An instinctive Attitude To Look Down On Others And Try To Dominate Them. I’m Sick And Tired Of Watching White Cops Murder Blacks On Television. But It’s Not A Simple Problem !!! https://www.facebook.com/david.mulberry.7/posts/10158514761505984 Go Visit A Negrito Village While You’re Still In The P.I. And Educate Yourself.

  10. I canโ€™t wait to get to the Philippines and away from America. All the racism and lack of care about others. Not only daily, but even during this time of a โ€œpandemicโ€ the likes that no one has seen in this lifetime. Just pure entitlement, lack of care/concern for one another.

  11. Thanks again Dan for your courage to address a touchy subject like race especially during this time of protests in America. I told you that you would receive backlash because people just donโ€™t want to hear about race or discuss it but itโ€™s not going away by itself. I will respect the opinions of your listeners and hope that they can respect and appreciate my views. Take care.

  12. Whites are whites, Asian are Asians, Latinos are Latinos. All is more or less OK among them and they all are a bit racist in their countries (be it Thai in Thailand or a Russian in Russia). And they laugh and poke jokes of one another. But beware, there is an African American, guards up.

  13. Please Dan, leave politics to the politicians. Your strength is showing people how to make the leap of leaving the comfort of the US and all its propaganda to find a good life overseas.

  14. Racism is fabricated to hurt Trump.
    Same with covid 19. A hoax top to bottom all to hurt trump.
    The lockdown, to hurt trump.
    No one “hates” blacks in the US.
    It’s nonsense.

  15. Thank you Dan as always for your great Vlogs, so many people and other cultures are shocked and surprised of Racism. Iโ€™ve spoken to many people from the Phillipines and they didnโ€™t know this has happened to majority of Black People . But unfortunately, it is alive and well . Hope to meet you soon Dan and Calvin in Phillipines after this pandemic . Awesome Guys!

  16. I’m in the U.S. and am white and am really looking forward to the day I leave and never look back. I’m just sick of all the crap. I walked out of a store the other day and a black woman was coming out of another store. She looked at me and said right to my face I hate you! She then just continued to shout I hate all white people as she walked to her car.

  17. America is the only country that separates its citizens by the color of their skin tone. I mean, if a person is a citizen of Thailand, that person is simply โ€œThaiโ€. Same can be said about the Philippines, and every other nation on this planet. And until the U.S. Govโ€™t Pass laws against labeling Americans, nothing is going to change. America has always spoken with forked tongue and always will. And letโ€™s not get started on the media, who thrives on the bad happenings vs the good. Evil, Corporation, Drama, Murder, Rap, and Drugs stories all create revenue views much like it use to sell newspapers. I am so disappointed in the country that served and most of the time while overseas I find myself ashamed to even say that I am from America.

  18. Another able bodied, whining black racist pretending he’s a victim while collecting Social Security Disablility blaming the very folks who pay for his entitled life style.

  19. I want to say thank you for putting the spotlight on race and race issues we have. It is important! A lot of the ppl are not ready, hence the dislike of this video and those who verbalized their dislike… you are awesome for standing up!!

    I agree with the man…we do carry the weight of our blackness- which is psychological and real. We go in stores and we become conscious. We are around other ppl money and items and we are conscious, if something is lost we are conscious of our blackness…to succeed we are conscious…
    So thank you for the platform.

  20. The killing of George Floyd
    On May 25, 2020, Floyd was arrested on a charge of passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a grocery store in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. According to the store clerk, the bill was an obvious fake and Floyd had refused to return the purchased cigarettes when challenged.[25]
    He died after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, pressed his knee to Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds during the arrest. Floyd was handcuffed face down in the street, while two other officers further restrained Floyd and a fourth prevented onlookers from intervening.:6:24 For the last three of those minutes Floyd was motionless and had no pulse, but officers made no attempt to revive him.:6:46 Chauvin kept his knee on Floyd’s neck as arriving emergency medical technicians attempted to treat him.:7:21
    The official autopsy found Floyd died of cardiopulmonary arrest caused by subdual and restraint. The toxicologist found several psychoactive substances or metabolites in his system, and the medical examiner noted fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use as significantly contributory to his death, though not the cause. A second autopsy, commissioned by Floyd’s family and performed by Michael Baden, without access to various tissue and fluid samples, found that the “evidence is consistent with mechanical asphyxia as the cause” of death, with neck compression restricting blood flow to the brain, and back compression restricting breathing.
    After Floyd’s death, demonstrations and protests were held globally against the use of excessive force by police officers and lack of police accountability. Accounts of looting, violence, and aggressive police activity occurred at many of these protests. Protests developed in over 400 cities throughout all 50 U.S. states and internationally.

  21. Iโ€™ve been the victim of black racism, the victim of affirmative action. I never let it influence the love of my fellow man. People are assholes and people are saints. But itโ€™s not a pity party for Black people. Get off your knees and straighten your own community out

  22. Lynching in America
    In the report, Lynching in America: Confronting the Legacy of Racial Terror, EJI documented more than 4400 lynchings of black people in the United States between 1877 and 1950. EJI identified 800 more lynchings than had previously been recognized.
    Racial terror lynchings were violent and public acts of torture that traumatized black people throughout the country and were largely tolerated by state and federal officials. Lynchings in the American South have not isolated hate crimes committed by rogue vigilantes. Lynching was targeted racial violence at the core of a systematic campaign of terror perpetrated in furtherance of an unjust social order. These lynchings were terrorism.
    The lynching era left thousands dead; it significantly marginalized black people in the country’s political, economic, and social systems; and it fueled a massive migration of black refugees out of the South. In addition, lynching – and other forms of racial terrorism – inflicted deep traumatic and psychological wounds on survivors, witnesses, family members, and the entire African American community.
    Why Build a Memorial to Victims of Racial Terror?
    EJI believes that publicly confronting the truth about our history is the first step towards recovery and reconciliation.
    A history of racial injustice must be acknowledged, and mass atrocities and abuse must be recognized and remembered before a society can recover from mass violence. Public commemoration plays a significant role in prompting community-wide reconciliation.
    The National Memorial for Peace and Justice provides a sacred space for truth-telling and reflection about racial terrorism and its legacy.
    The museum and memorial are part of EJIโ€™s work to advance truth and reconciliation around race in America and to more honestly confront the legacy of slavery, lynching, and segregation. โ€œOur nationโ€™s history of racial injustice casts a shadow across the American landscape,โ€ EJI Director Bryan Stevenson explains. โ€œThis shadow cannot be lifted until we shine the light of truth on the destructive violence that shaped our nation, traumatized people of color, and compromised our commitment to the rule of law and to equal justice.โ€
    Modeled on important projects used to overcome difficult histories of genocide, apartheid, and horrific human rights abuses in other countries, EJIโ€™s sites are designed to promote a more hopeful commitment to racial equality and just treatment of all people.
    The April 26 opening was accompanied by several days of educational panels and presentations from leading national figures, performances, and concerts from acclaimed recording artists, and a large opening ceremony. Thousands of visitors traveled to Montgomery to celebrate the launch of these important new American institutions.
    The Peace and Justice Memorial Center
    Built to enhance the public and community education goals of the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the center is home to a new monument that honors victims of racial terror lynchings and racial violence between 1950 and 1959. The center is located on Caroline Street, directly across from the entrance to the National Memorial.
    EJI staff offer presentations for the museum and memorial visitors at the center at 2:30 PM daily (except Tuesdays and Sundays).
    And the center will be hosting community events with nationally-acclaimed artists, writers, and scholars, films, and another programming to address a range of topics and issues related to the work of EJI, the Legacy Museum, and the National Memorial.

  23. African Americans and the G.I. Bill
    From Wikipedia,
    African American veterans benefited less than others from the G.I. Bill.
    The G.I. Bill aimed to help American World War II veterans adjust to civilian life by providing them with benefits including low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans, and financial support. African Americans did not benefit nearly as much as White Americans. Historian Ira Katznelson argues that “the law was deliberately designed to accommodate Jim Crow”. In the New York and northern New Jersey suburbs, 67,000 mortgages were insured by the G.I. Bill, but fewer than 100 were taken out by non-whites.
    Additionally, banks and mortgage agencies refused loans to blacks, making the G.I. Bill even less effective for blacks. Once they returned from the war, blacks faced discrimination and poverty, which represented a barrier to harnessing the benefits of the G.I. Bill, because labor and income were immediately needed at home.
    Most southern university principals refused to admit blacks until the Civil Rights revolution. Segregation was legally mandated in that region. Colleges accepting blacks in the South initially numbered 100. Those institutions were of lower quality, with 28 of them classified as sub-baccalaureate. Only seven states offered post-baccalaureate training, while no accredited engineering or doctoral programs were available for blacks. These institutions were all smaller than white or nonsegregated universities, often facing a lack of resources.
    By 1946, only one-fifth of the 100,000 blacks who had applied for educational benefits had been registered in college. Furthermore, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) came under increased pressure as rising enrollments and strained resources forced them to turn away an estimated 20,000 veterans. HBCUs were already the poorest colleges. HBCU resources were stretched even thinner when veteransโ€™ demands necessitated an expansion in the curriculum beyond the traditional “preach and teach” course of study.
    Though blacks encountered many obstacles in their pursuit of G.I. benefits, the bill greatly expanded the population of African Americans attending college and graduate school. In 1940, enrollment at Black colleges was 1.08% of total U.S. college enrollment. By 1950 it had increased to 3.6%. However, these gains were limited almost exclusively to Northern states, and the educational and economic gap between white and black nationally widened under the effects of the G.I. Bill. With 79 percent of the black population living in southern states, educational gains were limited to a small part of black America.

  24. I just got your membership but was very surprised that you did not cover any countries in Africa except Morocco…and you barely touched the Caribbean but yet you have been in 165 countries…

  25. Considering all the TV ads and giant billboards for skin whitening products in Asia, I just assumed there was some racism there. Please forgive my ignorance … rolling my eyes.

  26. Youtubers Must Now Register & Pay Tax In The Philippines.

    An interesting development affecting all YouTubers in the Philippines, BIR released Revenue Memorandum Circular No 60-2020 Youtubers in the Philippines are required to register as a business if their channel is monetized and showing ads, or receiving payments of any kind.

  27. Sorry Dan, you lost me. I loved the videos, and I love and respect all races of people and the amazing cultures and religions. Tired of being told i’m Evil for being white…everyone is an individual, NOT a race. sorry, unsubscribing. So disappointed in you falling into this game.
