Thoughts on Jay Abdo’s Golden Globes Interview and the Definition of Refugee

As a former refugee, such video titles offend me.


They imply that refugees are typically inept and untalented, that it takes SO MUCH for them to get somewhere.


Can't a refugee simply be a human—any human, such as you—who has been forced to leave their country?

[Golden Globes site has removed the video - found it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/a5dQ3g0KgLc?si=jczTn0KtZ2FjpN-v ]
