…Being Indian is hard.
"Don’t blame the SOLDIERS who are the ones pulling the triggers and killing people and blowing up homes and double tapping funerals and droning civilians and raping the native people and torturing them and covering up for fellow soldiers and terrorizing countries!!!! They only joined to pay for college!!!! Blame the system! Yeah man! Fight the power!!!"
its funny how some brown people will cry rivers over arabs discriminating against them but they refuse to accept that they do the same to black people. like you are on the same wave length aas arabs when it comes to racism, dont forget it.
if someone is being racist and ignorant and they call you an “indian terrorist” and you respond with “no, i’m hindu, muslims are terrorists” then you’re a fucking moron and you’re apart of the problem and i seriously hope your head gets slammed into a wall
Skypalacearchitect: I ‘m an Indian Hindu and I totally agree with what you said. Being a PoC does not excuse faithism, or cancel it out. In fact, if anything, it makes it worse: you are oppressed in a way, so you should know better than to contribute to oppressing others. It is just absolutely terrible, and entirely inexcusable, that people do this. I’ll be honest, I’m really glad I haven’t seen this yet – to the point where, in middle school, I was genuinely shocked to find out Islamophobia was a thing – but this good luck probably won’t last. Knowing the rampant Islamophobia in the U.S, sooner or later I’ll have to see it… I dread that day. Although, I do feel kind of guilty that I’m grateful I haven’t seen it happen yet. After all, just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter, right? Maybe it’s just because I like where I live, and while it’s one thing to accept that terrible things happen in other places, it’s another thing to accept that there happen in places you like, and stay in. It’s kind of like how someone once said the worst kind of misogyny is not from some horrible politician, or some unbelievable extremist, but casual misogyny from the people you admire, the people you trust and love.
It turns out there’s a man out there stealing Black women’s purses and then killing the Black women (whether they give up their purse or not).
Spread the word. Be Safe.
