Apparently, Asian, and Bitch: Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott orn Asian opponent: Don't vote for the ching-chong! by Violet lkonomova August 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM comment v bizarre-transmission: thettasigma: ferventfox: awesome-everyday: internetdumpsterfires: Black people can’t be racist. Ugh, okay. The remark by this black woman was disrespectful and based on race. It was rude, bigoted and uncalled for. But no, in an anti black world, black people do not have the social, political or systemic financial power to be racist. Racism implies that beyond hurting and insulting that asian woman that this black woman is connected to a system that has the power to negatively impact this woman’s existence. That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do. And furthermore, there could be an argument made that deteoit is chocolate city and perhaps she does have that infrastructure of black networks to truly effect her opponent, but idk I was in Detroit last year and it looks a lot like Brooklyn does now. White and gentrified. White people with money, who control our political systems, finances, and predominant social narratives are claiming urban space like they’re colonizing pioneers looking to take the new world. Detroit isn’t the same anymore. Anyway, black people can be shitty insensitive bigots but we do not have the social capital to be racist, particularly not in the united states. “That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do.”  Ahahaha: No. A congressperson is the definition of systemic power. You can’t bitch about lack of political power when we are talking about elected politician.  Clearly the world isn’t so anti-black that it couldn’t vote her in.  Chang is also a first generation American, while Scott, to my knowledge, is not, and she specifically made anti-immigrant comments. She also has “power” within the context of her own ethnic community and she used that power to direct racism towards other African-Americans who supported Chang by implying they were somehow traitors, essentially dictating how they ought to act based on their race, particularly Chang’s husband for his interracial marriage (I don’t give a flying fuck what race you are, negative comments about interracial marriage and mixed race people are racist. period. end of story).  Even if I did accept the prejudice + power model or racism (which I don’t as that is neither the etymology or common usage of the word) Cook’s comments would certainly fit the bill. She made race based attacks on people based on types of marginalization that she is exempt from; and did so from a position of power partially gained by the fact that she is exempt from these types of discrimination.   It’s racist. Stop making excuses.  “That dark skinned woman who’s an incumbent running for office likely has about the same amount of systematic power as I do.” Is this person on drugs? They’re claiming that… A political person… A congresswoman… Has no power in the country in which she was elected… By the populace… As a politician. That, or they’re a politician too. Apparently we can say anything now and it makes sense. Huh. Also these remarks are the absolute epitomy of racism and if anyone refuses to see it, they’re not purely misinformed. They are delusional. *literally calls an Asian person ching chong*“How dare you say I’m being racist??” Thank you for attending today’s lecture on cognitive dissonance.

Memes, 🤖, and Vice: MAY ALLAH GRANT US SUCH SPOUSES WHO REMIND US OF HIM. AMEEN. -~ When it comes to marriage, I hear a lot of people say "I don't want someone who is *too* practicing." But what they mean to say is "I don't want someone who is *more* practicing." More than who? More than themselves. Most people say this because they feel that they won't get along as well as they hope to with their spouse if they're at a higher stage of emaan than them, but that's really not the case. What is marriage? It's a contract. When two people have their nikah, they agree to strive towards Allah *together*. Maybe they don't say it out loud, maybe they don't even think it in their minds, but the real purpose of marriage is to gain proximity to Allah. To serve Him. And to serve His deen. Of course there are other benefits of marriage, but one of the focal points of marriage is to strive to attain Allah's pleasure through pleasing one another. A wife through pleasing her husband and vice versa. At the end of the day, if a wife serves her husband and pleases him, Jannah will be made easily attainable - as long as she also fulfills the rights of Allah. And if a husband takes care of his wife and fulfills her rights, he too will be pleasing Allah because Allah has placed her in the trust and care of her husband, hence it's incumbent upon him to fulfill such rights. There's no harm in having a spouse who is more spiritually active than you. If anything, it's a bonus. For your spouse will help you become better in terms of your own spirituality and closeness to Allah. Even little things like being reminded to read the dua for leaving the home together, encouraging each other to give charity, sitting together and remembering Allah or even something as great as waking each other up for tahajjud. Such acts will bring you closer to Allah. And if you do that little bit in order to help your spouse improve their spirituality, you're helping them achieve Jannah, you're helping each other achieve Jannah *together*. And that should be your ultimate goal. May Allah grant us such spouses who remind us of Him. Ameen.♥
