A black woman sick of racists who told her to return to her country has set up a fundraising site for them to fund her plane ticket.

Jordene Phillips, 20, has suffered years of racist abuse despite living in the UK all her life with her family. But now she has launched a campaign for racists to pay 5,000 for a plane ticket to Jamaica, her country of origin.

Jordene, who has already collected more than 200, explained: Someone actually donated fifty pounds to me and called me the word N. I’m crying but I’m crying up to the bank.

He shows the opinion of these people. They are so full of hatred, but they are improving my life and I am laughing at them.

But the product design student, who lives in Barking, east London, says he has also been flooded with racist and abusive comments and intends to leave the UK.

Jordene, whose grandparents were part of the Windrush generation, says she has suffered so much abuse that she now feels alien to the UK and plans to leave as a result.

She said: I intend to leave because I like to be around people I feel I can connect with.

Sometimes racism is just plain and sometimes institutionalized because people get opportunities I would not have.

Anger has increased over time, I see other people abusing racism and it hurts me because I know that this is how they will treat me.

Jordene continued: My grandparents were lied to and brought to the UK where they could not find work and were subjected to racism.

Many of my family members returned to Jamaica because they could not handle it, but my mom is still here.

Many people think that racism is disappearing, but no, in another form.

Racists do not need to shout the word N in your face, they can send you messages online.

She posted the site on Friday, Sept. 11, after being accused of being aggressive by someone in a call center.

I was on the phone with someone trying to sort out my phone bill and even though he could not see me, I knew he could tell I was black by the way I was talking and he was really rude and disrespectful me.

He called me aggressive and this relies heavily on the black woman.

Id had enough, I got up so that I set up the fundraising site.

I’m not talking about white people, I’m talking about racist people, but I just thought, anyone who wants me to leave this country can pay for it themselves.

The site has gone viral on social media with Jordene receiving messages of support from around the world.

She said: I did not expect so many rockets.

There has been a mixed reaction, some negative and some positive.

It’s a political statement, if you want to leave, then you have to pay.

One donor, Tara Waugh, wrote: Do not use the money to leave your country of birth. F *** racists. I go on vacation.
