Being Tolerant and Inclusive Means Excluding Whites

From the Gates of Vienna:
Amarra Ghani is a 24-year-old woman of Pakistani background who is interning at National Public Radio. She was born in Brooklyn, and remembers suffering greatly as a child from the intolerance expressed towards her family by non-Muslim Americans in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Before she joined the cadres at NPR, she was a student at the University of North Carolina, Asheville, and a member of the Muslim Students’ Association on campus. While she was at UNC in 2012, she guest-blogged at “Breakfast at Night: A Ramadan Photo Project” about her fellowship with the other two “Abrahamic faiths”.

In March 2012 she took part in a UNC event to commemorate Trayvon Martin ....

On Twitter yesterday, Amarra Ghani posted a tweet that included a snippet of Urdu.

... So her tweet is really: I thank god 90x a day that I’m not a white woman.
