Bullet ricochet: a talk with reality

“The Aryans” (2014), documentary by Mo Asumang, interview with Tom Metzger.

The journey of Mo Asumang (granddaughter of a former Nazi SS who raised her) started when she heard a song verse calling for her murder “This bullet is for you, Mo Asumang”, sang by the Neo-Nazi band “White Aryan Rebels”. Instead of hiding, Mo was driven by her desire to overcome her fears and sets out for the most exiting journey about Identity. On her search for Identity, Mo follows the advice of the Neonazis to “Go back where you came from!”, but in Ghana she is seen as a “white” person.

She believes that an effective way to combat racism is to literally make racist people meet with a type of person they have a problem with.

“These people don’t actually talk to Jews. They don’t talk to black people. They don’t know their enemy, so-called enemy,” Asumang says in a BBC News report. “So what they do, when they talk to me, they talk to reality, and that’s the first thing they have to survive.”

Forcing a racist to face a biracial person, Asumang said, “totally confuses them because I’m not like they want me to be.”
