The hijab is not the most important part of being a Muslim woman, but it is certainly the most visible. In a time when Islamophobia only seems to be on the rise in the West, a practice that is so personal and diverse has become a warped and misunderstood part of a flat and monolithic picture of Muslim women.
Remember, Charlie Manson’s most enthusiastic and violent followers were white women. So that should tell you plenty about the white female psyche and their penchant for fangirling over violent white males. And these are probably the same white women/girls who clutch their purses and lock their car doors whenever they see a Black person, and support cops and white vigilantes who gun down Black people.
Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.
His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.
There are literally 100s of photos of this girl on her twitter & Facebook. Holiday photos, school photos, family photos - but they chose this one because of the necklace she has on. You can argue that she made irresponsible dating choices, but that’s still someone’s innocent child whose image you’re nationally degrading. These people make me sick.
