A Black American's case for refugee status in Canada.


I don't have an obligation to the United States of America. I don't pledge allegiance to America's flag. I was just born here. I don't owe the United States of America nothing.

Live from Vancouver, Kyle Lydell Canty explains why he, as a Black American, is applying for asylum in Canada to escape unchecked police violence, racism embedded into the core of American institutions, and a culture that brainwashes its citizens into compliance.

Kyle wrote the Guardian opinion piece It's so dangerous to be a black American, I've sought asylum in Canada.
