First, and largest: that's not Omar. That's an anonymous Somali woman in 1978, a full four years before Omar was born.
Beyond that:Omar was 13 when she moved to the US as a refugee.
But that hasn't stopped the right wing from using it as PROOF that she's a terrorist.
And this is where whiteness comes in.
But suddenly a Muslim woman has a gun and she wants to take down America from the inside.
it's the most American thing white people can do, apparently.
I guarantee if I wanted to dedicate my morning to looking, I could find photos of current white male politicians holding their guns in exactly the same pose.
But Omar isn't white, so none of that matters.
