I don’t mind the curious looks of small children at the masjid as they wonder about the art on my body. What I do mind are the harsh judgements passed by grown men and women. Am I really so different from you? Just because this is what you see when I pray does that mean the prayers that come from my lips are any different from yours?

Never be too quick to judge another❤

Wrong. Racial oppression in the United States has always prevailed regardless of People of Color’s calm speaking tone and through peaceful protesting. It’s not us. The white people actually willing to fight racism have always demanded justice with us without their feelings being prioritized—PERIOD. If you aren’t willing to fight racism because people aren’t coddling you, you are the problem.
