Dear Majority. Please Stop Telling Me “You Stand With Me”
umair haque

Can tell you about countless incidents of abuse, big and small

Ahhh, who on this earth can’t?

Your unstated assumption is that only women and minorities experience this.

Tell me, have you ever been white?

White men probably do get more respect in the US… no wait. Never mind. Of course they don’t. They are belittled a thousand times a day, every day just for being white. Or men.

Overt hostility and accusation is leveled at them… just for what they look like, and their gender.

Sound familiar?

Sound all TOO familiar? Like maybe you’re part of it?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
