We’re not people really. Our concerns are not America’s concerns. We are just here for entertainment. We’re a convenient treasure trove of limitless creativity to be pillaged, watered down, and re-purposed for White audiences and the people getting rich from bastardized stereotypes and simplified caricatures of everything we bring to the table have nothing to say when shit gets really real.
Salam, I'm in so much distress right now. I'm at a point in my life where I'm so paranoid and stressed about everything and I can't even think straight and I've begun to isolate myself from everyone. I would explain what happened but the post would be too long. Please I beg everyone to pray for me that this one thing goes right. I feel so hopeless right now. Please please dua for me. inshallah ill keep you all in my prayers. Jazakallah.
May Allah swt ease your struggles and grant you sabr and strength. iA everything will work out for the best. Ameen.
May Allah Ta’ala bless & reward our parents.
They’ve done so much for us, Alhamdulillah, yet we sometimes fail to realize it.
Bringing up children in this society isn’t easy.
May Allah Ta’ala bless and reward them both, especially our mothers who do double.
May Allah Ta’ala grant them forgiveness & bless them with good health & reward them bountifully, Ameen.
once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it
loaded language and media bias
it’s even worse if you watch the 24hr coverage. CNn has literally been referring to the situation as “uprisings”. Uprisings, like we’re talking about the fucking districts rising against the capitol or some such shit.
Autopsy report showed that mike brown had no drugs in his system and the store owners said that there was no robbery so what the fuck else do you racist ass whites want
To not be held accountable for their actions
I just came back from a funeral for a nine year old little girl who died from cancer. Can y’all please make a dua for her and her family? Her mom has been handling it so well and staying strong for her family alhamdullilah.
Insha’allah I hope Allah continues to ease all of their pain.

I love Jesse Williams so much!
Mariah Carey sells 30,000 tickets in less than 24 hours on the show that will make the Philippines.
Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.
HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY!
Just needs to be stated again!
“Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”
You know what really gets to me, and I’m sure many know this, is the blatant abuse and betrayal that white photogs display in POC countries. Every time a photo has gotten famous like this photo did in history, the actual focus of the photo is left behind in the dust while the white photog is hailed as a hero for displaying the ills of that country. He didn’t even fucking ask her name. He didn’t ask for 17 years. The world knew nothing about her life and her story. He captured one moment that made him famous and she got nothing.
Every time I see this photo, I seethe.
"A hundred years ago they used to put on a white sheet and use a bloodhound against Negroes. Today they have taken off the white sheet and put on police uniforms and traded in the bloodhounds for police dogs, and they’re still doing the same thing.”

Please pay attention to what is happening in Ferguson right now.
The people of Ferguson are staging a peaceful protest regarding the unlawful, tragic murder of Mike Brown, and the police are responding with rubber bullets (one man has been injured so far) and tear gas, calling the…
