An Oregon woman wants white people to pay to fix her, claiming racism has left her broken.
The outrageous request, posted by “victim” Rinna Rem on the fundraising website YouCaring, blames systemic racism not only for her depression, but also for Marfan’s Syndrome, a connective-tissue disorder.
“I grew up in and live in the PDX area. The stress of living as a Thai-Cambodian woman in such a white city replete with constant interpersonal and institutional racism has a big toll on my health and well being,” she wrote. “I see an amazing therapist to cope with this s**t, but I spend $100/month on therapy for bi-weekly appointments. Now it’s your turn to pay!”
Rem claims her conditions get worse with more stress, which she feels through racism, and she wants white people to pay to secure a happy future for herself.
“I want to live a healthy, happy life. I want to have a healthy, happy family in the future too,” she wrote. “Help me pay for therapy to deal with the stress of racism. Please don’t let racism shorten my life or kill me.”
Since Sept. 10, she has raised $1,900 of her $2,400 goal.
Her campaign, headed “White Friends, Pay For My Therapy,” was roundly mocked on social media.
@nypost A questionable campaign to say the least. However, I’m more disturbed by the fact that people have donated. Sends a bad message.

@nypost Do not donate to this self-serving-racist con. She should get a job, earning a pay check would be better therapy than this scam. — artlover (@decoarttrends) October 3, 2015
