Muslims in Trump’s America: realities of Islamophobic presidency begin to sink in. – The Guardian. 

Pity it didn’t ‘sink in’ before the election. Half of them didn’t even vote! 

As a Muslim, Fariha Niamey was concerned about the newly minted president-elect and his campaign promises that targeted Muslims, immigrants and women. But it wasn’t until an older white couple began yelling at her, 10 minutes into her weekly commute to her internship, that the reality of Trump’s America set in.

“I didn’t believe it until the moment this incident occurred,” she said of Trump’s victory. “I don’t think I absorbed it and felt the reality of it, I didn’t. I kept myself distracted all of Wednesday and then Thursday happened and then it hits me, this is actually what’s going on and it was not OK.”
