Are you being serious right now??
Let me share a story then, okay?
This is called “How I found out I was Muslim”
Okay as background, English is not my first language, but I’ve lived in America before 9/11. So a lot of my friends were doing this random Christian stuff and this random Jewish stuff so I was like “What are you doing?” And they were like “I’m Jewish? Are you Jewish or Christian?” And I was like “I don’t know!”
So I went home and I asked my mom “Are we Jewish or Christian?” And she laughed and told me “Neither, we’re Muslim.”
From what I had been hearing that meant we were terrorists. Then I went to school and my friends asked me and I started to cry and I told them “I’m a terrorist.” And at first my teachers were like WTF but then they understood and they explained it to me and obviously I understand better now but TBH I know exactly why I believed that and it’s not some drastic racist hater story, I know, but I live in the second most diverse city in the country, so I would like to assume that here people are the LEAST racist so I feel very bad for anyone who’s actually living through racism in, most likely, mostly white communities
