Feminist Women of Color
|The focus of this blog will remain on women of color, as I am one. The frequent topics explored will include talk about the struggles women of color face and how feminist thought and reasoning helps to combat these struggles. I also plan to use this blog as a basis to support and celebrate women of color.|
As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously?
Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened?
Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?"
