Discrimination

I got to see this video because some of my friends were sharing it on twitter, and I was moved by it, enough to do a post about it.

Discrimination needs to end.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” Edmund Burke 1770

I think the quote should read “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing” it is 2010 after all

What I loved about this video is that more people stood up against discrimination than those who approved it, but then again… more people stood there and did nothing.

Of course discrimination happens in all cultures and societies, if it happens in yours, please stand up against it, as I hope to stand up against any discrimination that I encounter.

Last but not least, a married couple with children who had been separated by a court ruling, are finally back together. That was discrimination due to “purity of bloodlines” which is one of the most ignorant things that any person can believe in.

  1. I agree that video is so powerful that makes you wanna do something, it is great to see some people despite their pain but still can stood up for this behavior ! its really had nothing to do with being muslim or not but its about how people take your rights even before spell it out !

    Thanks my dear for posting with great comments :)

    • Aziz, thanks for your comments, and if I remember correctly the video came from you… but that was before my morning coffe, so my memory was not yet functioning :)

  2. i have seen this video before and it was very moving either by the discrimination the girl is faced with or by the amazing stand some people took even when they are differ .
    Thanx Qusay for sharing :)

  3. It isn’t exclusively an American problem. It’s happening everyday, everywhere, to too many people, of so many faiths, and ethnic backgrounds. Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and Bahais. As well as Africans, Orientals, Middle Easterners. Indians and many others.
    Everybody is doing it to everybody in our planet, and it has to stop.
    They call a lot of things by their true name, except discrimination. It is the ultimate form of terrorism. And it should be fought accordingly!
    Thanks a million my dear Qusay for taking up the fight. It has been a life long crusade of mine.
    May God bless you and your family.

  4. Somewhere in my early morning pots (nb plural) of tea my comment (and its very own PS) was poofed, and then I accidentally poofed the backup copy I kept in case of poofing.

    I shall return with a more substantive comment after I recover from my grief reaction, and am more thoroughly caffeinated.

    Hasta pronto! LOL :)

  6. I have witnessed more racial discrimination by our fellow citizens here in Saudi. I studied in USA too, I didn’t witness blatant discrimination while I was studying with myself or any other foreigners that I knew. I a sure it exists in places & in living rooms but I didn’t see out in public.

    Most of employees face discrimination everyday from the time they land at our airport, to everyday shopping, getting legal work done, at hospitals & worst when they are in accidents… it’s always the expats fault, we can do no wrong. We need to work to fix these issues here before we can point out to anyone else….
