"According to the FBI, there have been 129 confirmed white Christian terrorists in the last 20 years. That includes Timothy McVae, the uni-bomber, the Atlanta Olympics bomber and dozens of family planning centers and abortion clinics. Muslims? 19. Which would make white people the most likely demographic to commit a terrorist attack. So watch your mouth before you call me a terrorist or I’ll knock your fucking teeth out.”
When the Malaysian plane was shot down a while ago, I was at work watching the news. Being a housekeeper in a hotel, a group of us would come in and clean a room for two hours so I was stuck with these women. I tried to make conversation; “That’s crazy right? It’s going to be another Cold War.” My boss turns to me and spouts, “Yeah, now all these Muslims are going to start setting off bombs in all their gas stations and stores.” Seriously. SERIOUSLY. I couldn’t fuckin believe what I had heard. ”Are you serious?” ”Yeah, they’re always so mean, they all have bombs and I know it.”
It went silent for a while, I seriously couldn’t believe the ignorance I’d heard. I then turned to her and stated the fact that there has been 129 terrorist attacks from WHITE CHRISTIAN PEOPLE and only 19 from Muslims. “Give me an example.” “Okay, recently the Boston Bomber.” “No, he was Jewish.” WHAT. WHAT. “But you know that he was still white right??? I mean religion =/= race.” “No, he was Jewish. He’s been working with the Muslims. They need to go back to their country before we have to kill them all.” Yes, I am not joking. People are that fucking horrible.
Just today, we were cleaning in a room for 2 hours again when another terrorist attack pops up on the news. Different people, same fact I stated. “Yeah that may be true, but they’re all trying to seem like a terrorist to get with the Muslims and Islamic people.” Trying to SEEM like a terrorist??? They KILLED people, they ARE terrorists. They asked for another example, again I said the Boston Bomber. They quickly went on their phones to see exactly what he looked like. “Well he was born in Russia, oooh he’s pretty hot.” “He’s still white, I don’t know why you’re arguing race with nationality. And how can you find a man who killed 2 people and injured more than a 100 people attractive? That’s pretty…fucked up.”
"Just because he killed people doesn’t mean I can’t think he’s hot."
I am so done. I can’t be around ignorant people anymore. These kinds of things make me sick. Middle Eastern, Muslims, Islamic, etc. they ALL belong here. This is their home, and I will defend that statement until I die. No one deserves to have this terrorist stereotype put on them. I really am sorry for all the hurtful things that all of you have to deal with, I will never understand it but I will fight against these comments always.
