A disciple in Mian Mir shrine, Lahore by Mobeen_Ansari

Today’s post comes from Maryam: In the photo above, her father Ali and below, uncle Gholam

They lived in Illinois in the late 70s, coming from Abadan, Iran. Ali came to the states with his brothers and about 10 male and female cousins to go to college. It was popular in the 1970s for young Iranians to go to college in America because of scholarships awarded by the Shah of Iran.

werewolfau:

when the oppressed/minority is quiet or kind, the majority doesn’t go ‘well they are so sweet, we should give them rights.’

when that happens, the majority does not notice the oppressed. they become invisible.

that is why no minority is required to be nice or sweet- because they will be flies on a wall otherwise
