“As a child I was called every racial slur you can call someone during post 9/11. As I saw the news of this attack that took place in New Zealand, my blood boiled. I knew as an artist I had to break my silence. Hence, using my platform to bring awareness to this matter. As a teacher, I don’t want any of my students being bullied and harassed for their faith and/or cultural background. Some parents chose not to tell their child about this massacre.
So the kid goes to class and a girl is wearing a hijab to pay respect for the victims and this kid start making fun of her. This is a wake-up call. I am raising my voice because I would never want any child going through the hardship I went through as a brown Muslim kid. We don’t want anyone to be called Osama the way I did. Paying my respect to those who passed and here to change the stigma that surrounds the people that practice Islam.”
This incident left many shaken and praying for the well-being of many countries! United we should all stand for change. Here is a response to this massacre through something we can all appreciate, music.https://youtu.be/zeDvnK-yO2U
