I am really so unimpressed and disappointed by non-Black Muslims who can only respond to the AME shooting in Charleston with “see!!! Double standard! If it were a brown dude, he’d be a terrorist”. We’re seeing black people being massacred en masse in style that sharply contradict any claims of a post-racial society and this is the only commentary you can contribute? Your priorities are marred by selfishness.
Yes, it’s a valid point. White privilege is real and the ways in which this will be covered will exemplify that. This is a point that’s made every time white men shoot up a building. You don’t need to make this point now. We get it.
For God’s sake, it’s the first day of Ramadan. Can you all chill on the shrill disregard for black life for just this month?
