Tashala Dangel Geyer’s video is her take on the situation tearing the USA apart – and it’s been labelled part-funny, part-moving
A black woman who is desperate to draw attention to the racial profiling her race is facing has taken the emotive step of painting herself WHITE to make a point.
The strained relationships in America between police and the black community have hit a crisis point on many occasions this year.
But now Tashala Dangel Geyer has created a talking point using her own body by daubing herself in paint in order to look more “white”.
And with more than 22 million views, it seems like the woman, in Daytona Beach, Florida, has an audience.

“This is the best s*** I ever could have thought of,” she tells the camera as she brushes thick, white household paint on her body.
“This is saving my life. Yes, God it is.”
She then explains: “The Lord woke me up and sent me this sign, so I went on ‘head to Home Depot and got this paint, because White Lives Matter.”
She streamed the video of herself painting her entire naked body on Facebook Live, stating: ““You better tell your aunts, your sisters, your itchy itchy grandmammy. You better tell them to go white and they will survive.
“If you go Caucasian, b**** you will live a long muthaf****** time. Everybody in my house is getting painted white…
“Baby, I don’t want nothing brown on me… cause police ain’t gonna kill me, gaddamnit.”
Her point hits home as yet another US city has seen Black Lives Matter protests this week.

Demonstrators have taken to the streets for three nights in a row to make themselves heard over the death of Keith Lamont Scott, who was shot dead by police.
For Geyer’s part, the remedy is clear.
““I’m ain’t trying to be funny. I’m not racist. I’m not racist at all, but in order to survive in the world, it seems to me like you’ve got to be white,” she says frankly.
“You ain’t gotta muthaf****** say, ‘Hands up don’t shoot,’ if you look like this. But if you don’t look like this, b**** then ‘pow’ you’re dead. They’re gonna kill your a**, so you better go on ‘head and go white, and you’ll be alright.”
