https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2016/11/18/harvard-student-says-a-man-called-him-a-fing-muslim-in-cambridgeIn a store a few blocks from campus I was accosted by a man who called me a "f***ing Muslim." He followed me to the checkout counter, aggressively asking me where I was from, and none of the other people in the store said a thing.
While this pales in comparison to discrimination faced by others, and while I'm not particularly rattled/disheartened, bystander intervention is crucial. Whenever we see racism, sexism, islamophobia, or xenophobia, we need to take a stand—all of us.
I'm going to keep walking with my head held high and with love in my heart—no one will change that. But hopefully we can stand together against intolerance and injustice.
