The loss of humanity and over abundance of violence has propelled society into a dystopia I had hoped would remain in an Orwell novel.

As a African American and Iranian girl, what is happening in our nation and our world has created a noise so deafening that I’m numb. Unable to process. Whether you are a POC or from a protected class or the most privileged person to have walked this earth, you should understand that pains and aches of existing.

Growing is a difficult task in it of itself. To have to worry about the safety of yourself and your family… truly heartbreaking. Whether you are in Flint or Aleppo, or are dealing with one of the millions of travesties that aren’t covered by the “24 minute news cycle” that is social media, I care for you. My soul breaks for you. My activism motivates for you. If you are in a position to do so, help educate: me, my peers, society. I want to help. I will help.
I can’t imagine what you are going through and you shouldn’t have to either.

There is a considerable population of Iranians of African ancestry who mostly live in the southern Iranian provinces of Hormozgan, Bushehr and Khouzestan.

I have a question

A customers randomly out the blue said “ya know man i really hate Americans”

This wqs unprovoked and we were talking about his chocolate milk right before he said this. I brought it up to my coworker and they were like yeah it’s understandable i hate Americans too. (Note he was from nepal and my coworker is a basic white girl)

So my question is why is it ok to say you hate Americans or the English but if you dare say “i hate Africans or iranians ect..” both seem equally racist and stupid to me

Tl;dr why is it ok to be racist against Americans
