You know, all of the terrorists attacks that have happened so far have been in areas that I don’t really know. I know of them and they may be close but I don’t know them as well as I know Finsbury Park.
Finsbury Park is one that I know very, very well. This shit is beyond close to home. I’m sickened and horrified by this. My stomach has been sinking since I heard the news. I feel for the victims, for those who were just going about their lives. Horrible doesn’t even cover it.
The media are calling it an ‘incident’ and not terrorism because the perpetrator is white. They do this every time. If you’re black or brown, you’re a terrorist. If you’re white, you’re mentally ill. It’s frustrating.
What’s doubly frustrating is that I keep seeing anti-Muslim sentiment, fucking Trump supporters are chiming in. White people are claiming there they’re scared of retaliation and just, it’s always funny how people make these things about them.
