I AM SORRY BUT THIS IS WHY I AM EMBARRASSED TO BE AN AMERICAN. IF A HIJAB THAT DORNS THE AMERICAN FLAG PATTERN IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BUT SKIMPY ASS BIKINIS OR WEARING THE FUCKING ACTUAL FLAG IS ACCEPTABLE, JUST BECAUSE THE PERSON IS WHITE, I WANT TO FUCKING THROW UP.

who’s the terrorist?
I’m not a fan of organized religion (although it should be pointed out that the woman in the photo might not even be Muslim; people wear hijab for cultural reasons, too) but this kind of hate for what someone is wearing is unacceptable, especially the hypocrisy that these assholes’ reactions invokes as was pointed out by the comments above. Pure disgusting racism. That woman has done nothing wrong. If anything she’s probably trying to pay respect to a country that doesn’t deserve it.
