You can't help what people say in their thoughts, but I'm astounded that someone would say something so hurtful within earshot of another person! Disgusting women

I've had some really bizarre comments from health care providers about being married to a darker skinned man and being of middle eastern decent myself, but I'm a big girl and understand ignorance. I just can't imagine the hurt a comment like that would cause for a child. I'm getting teary eyed thinking about it.

People suck. You shouldn't have had to justify yourself to them.
DP sees a lot of racism at work. She had someone call in to report some people who were acting suspicious. DP asked her what the suspicious behaviour was and the woman who called in said "they look Muslim.."

Full kudos to you for standing up to them. Often it's only later you think what you should have said. Your reply was perfect and your clearly contributing more to the community than they are.
But think of it this way- you probably passed 200 people at the shops and those 2 idiots are the only ones who were horrible. So don't let 1% of people get you down. They are the minority not you.

Thank you all for your lovely replies .
I never let these things bother me...just this one really hit me hard!
Im a muslim and often people assume muslim/islam = terrorism. Once at a friends gathering a guy was really in my face about being muslim and how shameful it is, its discusting, all muslims are terroists, islam teaches ppl to kill ...and i just blew up and said (screamed actually )..''did muslims start world wor 1 and 2?? did muslims slaughter millions of american natives, africans and australian aborigines???.. NOOO!!! So shut the f***up !!! ''. and yes that did shut him up

I'm so glad a stranger stood up for you, particularly in this current society that has a strong negative view of Muslims (unfairly so). You don't deserve that and your response was perfect
