I want to forwardly speak out right now, which might be out of anger so I apologize if something I say that has the possibility of offending you.
There’s a reason why I dont consider myself an american, even though I was born and raised here, because this “freedom and equality for all” is pure and utter bullshit.
Today’s world is blatant proof of that concept.
We were never free and we never had equal rights to begin with. They just washed our minds and flooded them with all these falsely used words and empty promises to keep us from rebelling and fighting for what we honestly believe.
And the empty promises of “Freedom and Equality” IS EXACTLY WHAT WE DESERVE. Why is it so fucking difficult to understand that?
I dont see what honestly makes it so hard to grant us the simple wish of being able to live amongst each other without fear of being targeted because of our, race, gender, and beliefs.
I am proudly and shamelessly Lebanese. I am also Muslim. I was never afraid to admit that. And I always stood strongly by it, because I love my culture and I love who it made me and who I am today.
Even though I would be targeted solely for that reason. Ever since I was young, and the events of 9/11 tarnished the belief that muslims/ people of middle eastern origin are not the ONLY terrorist, and the idea that ones actions should not, nor ever mean that the people of the same origin or those who fall under the same classification as said person will end up following the same path.
Ones negative actions should never speak out for people as a whole. Everyone is different, everyone is unique and built in their own way. JUST BECAUSE some people share certain similarities does not mean that they will end up the same. Terrorists come in all shapes and forms.
So why are muslims constantly being spotlighted? The media and their mind tricks poison their viewers with negative images and coverage of the chaos and insanity that is happening in our world now,
WHEN THERE ARE THINGS HAPPENING UNDER THEIR NOSES.
What about all of that, that is happening in Ferguson? What of those police that attack innocent people for no proper, honest, reason aside from the hint of suspicion flooding their minds? All america is doing to “fix” this problem is fighting back with stronger force. When you try to force something stop, it will do everything in its power to keep going. When will we ever understand that force does not always work.
My prayers go out to all those who have been wronged over the years based on their race, gender and beliefs. I am sorry that we live in a world that frowns upon anything that is different.
Stop racism, stop islamophobia, stop gender shaming, stop lying. Just stop.
