After an exhausting day at work, still in uniform, my mom and I had to run some errands at the bank when a white man wearing a construction vest entered in a rush, as another woman (who was also visibly brown) and I were using the ATM machines
He randomly became frustrated and impatient within 1 minute and said, "GET OUT OF MY FUCKING LAND!!! YOU FUCKING SANDN*GGERS!!!" to all 3 of us.
He scurried into the bank just to come back out again near us to repeat, "GET OUT!!! YOU PEOPLE TAKE ALL OUR FUCKING JOBS!!! GET OUT!!! GET OUT OF MY FUCKING LAND!!! GET OUT!!!" ... As shocked as I was, I wasn't watching a video on my news feed of a white supremacist verbally attacking a person/family of colour
This was happening
and it was happening to me, my mom and this woman.
This was real.
As I prepared to answer him back, my mom frantically pulled me out of the bank fearful that this man would physically attack us because he was getting very hyped up.
My hands were shaking but I was able to snap a picture of him from behind
I cried the car ride home... I was disappointed that a time like this has arrived.
This is no longer the Vancouver, Canada that I was born and raised in.
I've dealt with islamophobia, racism, bigotry, and xenophobia my entire life but today's incident was different than any other situation I've ever faced.
This man's ignorance boiling within him, ready to spew its filth in any form possible had no shame.
I've come to the realization that I am a visible target and it's important for me to use every opportunity I get to show these white supremacists that they've messed with the wrong #Fijian #Indian #Muslim #intersectional #creative Outfit ⚜️ of and by @husnafhussain
