well that is how other countries are now looking at the good ol u s of a.
they are giving vistor’s warnings about our recent issues with protests and police brutality.
this is what a foxholer sent me via reuters

Three countries have warned their citizens to stay on guard when visiting U.S. cities rocked by sometimes violent protests that erupted after a string of police shootings of black Americans.

The United States regularly issues travel warnings urging Americans to either avoid or exercise caution in countries marred by violence or political instability.

Now America is the focus of concern by foreign governments in the Middle East and Caribbean as protesters marched in U.S. cities throughout the weekend after police killed black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.

The protests have led to numerous arrests, scuffles and injuries in confrontations between police and demonstrators. America was also tense after a lone black gunman on Thursday shot dead five police officers during a protest in Dallas.

The U.S. embassy of Bahrain, a tiny Middle Eastern island nation, on Saturday urged citizens via twitter to “be cautious of protests or crowded areas occurring around the U.S.”

Bahamas, a Caribbean nation where most people identify as being of African heritage, on Friday warned its people to be careful when visiting U.S. cities rocked by “shootings of young black males by police officers.”

“In particular young males are asked to exercise extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with the police. Do not be confrontational and cooperate,” Bahamas foreign ministry said in a travel advisory.

The United Arab Emirates urged its students and other citizens in the United States to also be careful, using similar language the U.S. State Department employs when warning Americans about countries that have fallen victim to attacks by extremists.

“Please be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid crowded places when possible,” the UAE embassy said in a statement that urged people to stay away from any U.S. demonstrations. “Exercise particular caution during large festivals or events, be alert and stay safe.”

In July alone, the United States has issued travel warnings for Bangladesh, Venezuela, Iraq and Mali.

On Sunday, some tourists in New York’s bustling Times Square said they were nervous about the tension and recent violence in America. “I don’t like to be in crowded places anymore,” said Eleanor Fairbrother, who was visiting from Ireland.

it’s the racists of america fault.
most of them are the ones that are suppose to “protect” us.
how are tourist supposed to feel safe?
they shouldn’t have been gunning us down for shits ‘n’ giggles.
now the usa about to be judged heavily like the other countries we scrutinized.

  1. I’ve always wanted to visit New York and Washington and Cali but…idk. I’m still planning on going one day, but for a short trip. I hear shopping is DOPE in NY and Cali (jealous)

    This is nothing new though. the world’s BEEN knowing about the US, recent events are only heightening our perspectives, but also heightens my perspective about my own country. We’re far from perfect here. We’re well aware, hell I know way more about your politics and laws than I do my own, I’m ashamed to admit that! Yours are more interesting and scandalous (Hillary and Trump anyone?) and quite frankly we’re flooded with your programming and news anyway so it almost feels like we’re in the same country, but not really.

    People will still tour to the US, I won’t lie, it seems to be a great country, but tensions are REAL right now ( when aren’t they) Thankfully, the U.S has a lot of great and attractive qualities that outweighs the negatives.

  2. I REALLY hope the black Olympians SHOW OUT during the Olympics. A la Tommie Smith and John Carlos. Bring INTERNATIONAL attention to this shit

  3. Technology if used right can be a great asset and it is bringing to light the bias and racism in America and I urge my fellow black sisters and brothers to seek getting into legal careers, health career, and the justice system as a whole. It will take time, resources, and hard work but we have to get more into the system and promote each other within in order to seek fairness (please when you make it do not change for the worst and change on your people. Jamari you should check out Dr. Boyle Watkins response to these incidents because he give a great point of view of cause and effect:

  4. This was definitely on my mind as I’m supposed to visit for the Labour Day celebrations 😕
