I was almost #attacked tonight. I was walking w/my friend back to her home tonight. We had encountered a young woman intoxicated &were trying to get her to the YWCA. 3 men ran out and up a small hill around the #library They had masks covering their faces and hoodies over hair
I watched them get closer as my friend stayed with this young intoxicated girl. Every step, they became faster. As they started literally charging across #stafforddrive I turned, faced them and yelled at them to #stop My friend was on the phone w/help & I kept #yelling
They retreated into the bus shelter outside the library. We Beelined to the YWCA
You know why they stopped? I looked one of them right in the eyes and I saw the small amount of skin visible. This man is #Caucasian & I don’t think they were expecting me or my friend to be #white

Let's talk about the elephant in the room (pun intended).

Can we agree we're all anxious about this election? Great! Let's start there. But what exactly are we anxious about?

@Kbahri5 @JuliaFliss @drgamermom @ChristineBemis2 @gtoppo @DrLydiaYoung @DrKGRM @msjingold
Are we anxious about the final count? Yes

Are we anxious that this election will impact the lives of our children and their children after them? Yes

Excellent, let's keep going...

@HeatherJoy001 @ASMILEwithAnna @henneld_edu @awfrench1 @MikeHynes5 @MonicaHousen @STEAMcultivator
Are we at all anxious that 70 million people have just voiced their approval of the way our country has been run over the past 4 years? Still yes?

Great, stay with me...

In America, standing up FOR America, Hindus, Christians or Jews is considered anti-Muslim.

Standing up AGAINST #hypocrisy AND selective media coverage & discriminatory outrage is considered RACIST.

Today I was warned (by someone I know): "you are writing anti-muslim. watch-out"
People like us are suppressed in @Facebook @Twitter @Twitch @Instagram

Even the President of United States @realDonaldTrump @POTUS is getting suppressed, silenced, intimated & threatened

America fundamentally believed in diversity, freedom of speech & respect. BUT NOT ANYMORE!
In America, if you are a black, woman, Muslim, Democrat, you are a #Privileged

99% MSM, social media giants, corporations, educational institutions, politicians are BIASED for you (anti-India, anti-America, anti-Trump, anti-Modi, communist, Islamist)

WE ARE BEING INTIMIDATED.

#Privileged.

The word seems to evoke strong feelings no matter how used or who it is said to. It seems to evoke lots of anger and often for different reasons.

Watching the video of George Floyd I was devastated. You could see the life drain from this man’s face. 1/
My son & daughter equally devastated and enraged after viewing. I today am still unable to get the vision out of my head. The pleas of those witnessing his death still ring in my ears. I feel sick in the pit of my stomach. 2/
My son commented that if he had been there he would have intervened no matter what the cost. I had been thinking this also & agreed with him puzzled why no one intervened.

And there you have it, MY privilege. #MyWhiteness. 3/
