Hi everyone!

This is an illustrated guide I made as part of my co-admining work at The Middle Eastern Feminist on Facebook! It will be published there shortly. 
The technique that is displayed here is a genuine one used in psychology - I forgot the name and couldn’t find it again so if you know about it, feel free to tell me!
Some could say: “Yes but you can use that technique for instances of harassment other than Islamophobic attacks!”, and my reply is: Sure! Please do so, it also works for other “types” of harassment of a lone person in a public space!!
However I’m focusing on protecting Muslims here, as they have been very specific targets lately, and as a French Middle Eastern woman, I wanted to try and do something to raise awareness on how to help when such things happen before our eyes - that way one cannot say they “didn’t know what to do”! 
I’d like to insist on two things:
1) Do not, in any way, interact with the attacker. You must absolutely ignore them and focus entirely on the person being attacked!
2) Please make sure to always respect the wishes of the person you’re helping: whether they want you to leave quickly afterwards, or not! If you’re in a hurry escort them to a place where someone else can take over - call one of their friends, or one of yours, of if they want to, the police. It all depends on how they feel!

For my fellow French-speakers: I will translate it in French and post it on my page as soon as I can :)

Please don’t hesitate to share this guide as it could push a lot of people to overcome bystander syndrome!!

Lots of love and stay safe!

White man fatally shot Black woman after hitting her car.

53-year-old Deborah Pearl, a mother of three, was shot by 29-year-old Matthew Ryan Desha after his jeep hit her own vehicle. 

Black women went out of the car to assess the situation and saw a white man with 5.56-millimeter high-powered assault rifle. She put her hands in the air in attempt to save her life from the armed stranger, but it didn’t matter. Witnesses told that they heard at least 12 shots.

The media tries to shield Desha saying that he’s marine and suffered from PTSD. But, hey guys, check this out! He’s not more than a criminal and hater!

I do not accept excuses for the hate crimes.

These rich white people think that they can buy the silence of the black man just because they pay him millions! No! Money won’t help! He risks his career and huge sums of money for the sake of his brothers!
You can not buy off all the murders and hundreds of years of oppression of black people!

Why do white people get mad at black people having an opinion?

Perhaps because they speak the truth…

Rudy Giuliani Slams Beyoncé's VMA Performance: "I Saved More Black Lives Than Any of Those People You Saw on Stage"
Former NYC mayor speaks out against singer's politically charged performance

“I Saved More Black Lives Than Any of Those People You Saw on Stage”

THE REAL DEAL: Rudy Giuliani: a legacy of racism and corruption

“Many have written that Rudy Giuliani is the last person who should be interviewed regarding police brutality and race relations. In fact, Rudy became an expert on these very issues as ex-mayor of New York City. The real concern in having Rudy Giuliani speak on TV is that our racist, compliant media is not asking him the right questions. These so-called journalists seem to have forgotten that Rudy Giuliani oversaw one of the largest and widely coordinated assaults on the Black community during his tenure as NYC mayor from 1994 to the end of 2001. No one in the mainstream media seems to notice or care about the glaring hypocrisy of a supposed “law and order” politician who has numerous corruption scandals in his resume.” (x)

In a blink of an eye a national hero can turn into enemy just because he decided to defend his opinion! And this opinion was not directed against any of these newly-haters. He just wanted to appeal to reason! He just wanted some equality for his brothers, to let them live freely in this country!

He is not a traitor, he is not giving up his country! He only wants some justice!

A black woman in New York says she was fired from her hotel desk job because of her dreadlocks.

Rachel Sakabo, a 32-year-old living in New York City, was thrilled when she landed a job at the front desk of Manhattan’s St. Regis hotel. But after just two weeks on the job she claims was fired because of her dreadlocks.

Sakabo says a manager told her she couldn’t “have braids at the front desk,” to which she replied, “Well, don’t worry, they aren’t braids. They’re locs.”

When the manager allegedly asked Sakabo if she could “unlock them,” Sakabo informed them dreadlocks could only be cut off completely — which she said she would have been willing to do.

A week later, Sakabo was told she wasn’t a “good fit” for the job and was “let go.” The hotel’s “appearance standards” say nothing about dreadlocks, but use one word seen all too often in hair codes.

Montreal school's Aboriginal headdresses shock mother
Jennifer Dorner said she found the scene in the Montreal schoolyard distressing and offensive.

A Quebec mother says she was shocked that two Grade 3 teachers were wearing aboriginal headdresses and handing them out to students on the first day of classes Monday.

Jennifer Dorner said she found the scene in the Montreal schoolyard distressing and offensive and posted a photo and commentary on Facebook, where it began making the rounds.

“I was pretty horrified, I was hoping that this kind of thing stopped happening a long time ago, but apparently it continues so I took a picture and posted about it,” she said in an interview.

Dorner, whose daughter and niece are both Grade 3 students, said her niece Zoe was particularly upset by the headdress and wanted to rip it up.

School board spokeswoman Gina Guillemette says the headdresses — fashioned from cardboard and coloured feathers — were distributed to students at Ecole Lajoie as part of a focus on teaching about native communities in Quebec.

Dorner said that explanation is even more upsetting given the very people introducing the topic don’t seem to grasp the disrespect of portraying the headdress in this way.

“How can they possibly be teaching an authentic understanding of indigenous culture?,” she asked. “It doesn’t help their cause to say that. If anything, it makes it even more distressing.”

Such headdresses are generally only worn by elders or those who’ve earned the right to do so.

Non-natives donning them is seen as disrespectful as there is a spiritual and cultural significance attached to them.

Many concert promoters and sporting venues have banned the wearing of such First Nations headdresses as a costume or fashion accessory.

Dorner said a friend who is native has offered to attend a meeting she’s requested with the principal at the elementary school in Montreal’s Outremont borough.

Zoe’s mother, Sarah Dorner, said her daughter refused to wear the headdress.

“My daughter is very sensitive to these things, we lived in New Zealand for most of 2015 so we’ve had a lot of conversations with her about when it’s OK to be invited and to wear a costume or participate in song and dance,” she said, referring to Maori culture in New Zealand.

Sarah Dorner said she just wanted her daughter to enjoy her first day of school.

Some of the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission focus on education and she said the need to implement them is clear.

“I’m hoping that maybe, because this has hit a nerve, they’ll consider more appropriate ways of introducing that curriculum,” she said.

Meet Moya Bailey, the black woman who created the term “misogynoir.”

“Misogynoir” is a term queer black feminist scholar and Northeastern University professor Moya Bailey invented in 2010 to describe the specific way racism and misogyny combine to oppress black women.

Some are skeptical of words like “misogynoir” — words that have been invented in the last decade or so and appear to thrive solely on social media.

To anyone who might criticize “misogynoir,” Bailey would say that there’s power in creating a word for something that already exists but, for the most part, remains nameless — and it thrills her with joy to see how the word is being used on Tumblr especially.

Apparently it’s fine to be racist as hell to a black person as long as that black person isn’t a liberal. Feel free to call them names and tell them their ancestors would be ashamed of them. All that love and tolerance and multiculturalism goes right out the window if you don’t step in line. And they wonder why I want absolutely nothing to do with the toxic pile of shit they call an ideology.
