I'm on the 20 bus to downtown when a Muslim woman gets on the bus with her toddler in a stroller. (On a side note, no one in the front seats moved for her so she had to stand in the middle of the isle with her child). Behind me, a conversation goes on about how the woman's baby is “so cute.” The woman behind me says, “Yeah, she's cute until she gets to school and becomes a terrorist.” Oh Halifax, you're a city blinded by this illusion of diversity, tolerance and acceptance. How can it be that a child, no older than three-years-old, be subject to this xenophobic cruelty? Incidents like these are only the tip of the iceberg of systematic and oppressive processes that people of colour, like the Muslim woman and her daughter, experience on a daily basis. —Tired Of This Hate
