It's late right now but I wanted to post what happened today.
Basically, some discrimination occurred.
(Okay okay, it was actually an ignorant comment, but lemme vent)
And I couldn't do anything about it.
Let's backtrack shall we?
During lunch at school, my misadventure buddy and I were headed to the office (oh that reminds me about my good news post... well that's now delayed) and a group of girls were apparently laughing and as such, I couldn't have cared less because... well, do I know them?
Then one of them stepped out of the group and went
"Are you Egyptian?"
"Do you dance like tthissss?" And did that stupid sideways walk, you know the one we believed Ancient Egyptians walked like?
I thought they were talking to a another group of girls passing by and thought "Wow those girls are beeyoches, poor girls"
Misadventure buddy tried to point out to me that they were talking to us. But I was busy fiddling with my phone and didn't hear her. We kept walking and one of them followed us. I didn't notice until halfway and turned around.
She laughed and walked away.
Then I turned around and asked my friend "Was that to us?"
It took a couple of minutes to sink in and then....
I was PISSED.
Now if I didn't fear for my life or getting suspended I would have gave them a piece of my mind AND maybe opened a can of Whoop A (oh wait it's Ramadan nvm)
But I'm so non-confrontational (no idea where that post is) but I can't stop thinking about it.
It's never happened to me before. I've never been made fun of my hijab, or skin color (at least where I've never fought back) and to think that I was so clueless angers me.
I guess I'm experience what hundreds of Muslimahs face each day, even if technically this is a 'minor incident' but it's not minor to ME.
The worst part is that non-muslims DON'T get it. At least my friends don't.
"Get over it."
"Don't make a mountain out of a mole hill."
"Fight fight fight!"
I'm not depressed, I'm not going to resign myself to my bedroom because of those ignorant idiots.
I'm just angry, and because I can't 'do' anything about it but maybe I can become an activist or something.
-sigh- I need to go to bed.
And think about revenge.
(okay not really)
Take care you guys
