descriptions of Islamophobia
Islamophobia is very real and is something no Muslims can't escape. It's something they are expected to weather with "grace" lest they be immediately labeled terrorists. In /2018/ my cousin couldn't even go to an aerobics class without being told to "go home" (she's a white American who converted, tf she gonna go???) and that her "people" (re: Muslims) were killing Americans.
People do this to her when she's with her /children/ even. In FRONT of them.
descriptions of Islamophobia, family
her own oldest child has already learned what "grace" he must have when people spew bigotry to him and his mother. He had leukemia as a toddler and is half white, half Arab. Between the health battles and the experienced racism, he basically didn't even get to have a true childhood and it pisses me off.
