In today’s society

So what constitutes as discrimination?

I’m walking down the aisle at sobeys the other day minding my own business when a Muslim lady wearing a hijab was trying to get around me. I’m standing looking at something on the shelf and I always make sure my cart is as close to the shelf as possible to always make room for people to get by. Anyways this lady has to go around me because I’m looking at something on the shelf. As she passes me by she looks at me and calls me white trash.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Rant - Rental Costs, Housing Costs and the General Cost of Living in Edmonton are Hardly Affordable

So my rant is this….they cry discrimination whenever they don’t get something they want. They are just as bad. When are white people going to start crying discrimination. Seriously enough is enough.

I never felt this way until today. I have friends of all different nationalities and have never been treated that way by any of them.
What gives her the right to think she can call us white trash? And then they wonder why people are the way they are towards them. You self entitled twat!

    Why even bring up the fact that she was Muslim? An ignorant comment is just an ignorant comment no matter what color or religion. Maybe a Caucasian just said something ignorant to her and she was fed up. You don’t know what kind of day she just had…lighten up.

      You are so wrong. I got sneered at by a male chaperoning his two underage female relatives while I was shopping alone. He told me I should be shopping with my husband then took off. This past summer I got beaked off by a Muslim woman in full burka because I was wearing shorts in the Legislature pool. She told me she was offended. I told her tough shit, she moved to the wrong country then. North American culture is over as we know it, people. If you think the fundamental Muslims aren’t going to change Canada, and that Trudeau won’t stop them lest he “offend” someone, you are deeply blinded by what’s really happening to Canada.

    • Well I mean I have been called the N word by random people driving by me cause clearly they had nothing better to do with their time. Gave me a laugh…but really I feel like some posts like this are meant to divide. Why specify it was a Muslim person? What race was the OP? Everyone likes to talk about Muslims for a divide in this province specifically and I think this post was targeting just that.

I’m on the receiving end often and I see others on the receiving end all the time to. Its disgusting how bad it is. Without fail I hear it every time I go out to any mall or large store. Usually it’s directed towers the fact that I have a service dog and have an invisible disability and don’t look like I need one.

      Elham Is — Muslims have an untimate agenda – a mindset that doesn’t belong anywhere other than in a hell hole dug specifically for them –
      You know it and many of us know it.
      “Sure there are decent Muslims amongst the works’ but those aren’t the ones on the list of reference of concern. Red flags to reference of concern are when they (eg. the one calling the OP white trash) are brave enough to spout their filthy mouths off while footed on our land.

  18. Hurts doesn’t it. Makes you angry to have someone do that for no reason, other then you are white. You are one person….just think what they feel from us all the time. Sometimes it is good to experience bad things so you have an understanding of what others feel and have been feeling for generations from white people.

    • Heres the deal I agree to a certain degree. I have never been rude to anyone so therefore do not expect nor accept that from anyone. I would have not let her get away with it. I definitely would have called her on it. I would stop it right in its tracks.

      Marilena Bombino – Have you seen some of those Muslime women? They’re built like brick-shit-houses and hairier than all get out. You don’t look like you would have/could have stopped someone like that in their tracks

      [0]
    • For all I said above, I would never have just walked away either. I would have had a comment designed to make the individual feel small for having said what she said. This isnt acceptable from any side or any people, and must be stopped. But…..it cant be stopped until both sides have an understanding of how it feels to be hated upon.

      [0]
    • Marilena Bombino, exactly. If you don’t treat people that way then you have no lesson to learn. This attempt.to justify what OP experienced is unfair.

      [0]
    • I think you read that wrong, I am not justifying anything. If you saw it that way, you may have bigger problems then you realize. Understanding pain isnt justification, so sad you see it that way. You can either take your pain and become the same thing, or you can grow and learn from it….your choice of course, but it wont stop until people have an understanding of each other. Being a Mental Health practitioner, forces you to see both or the many sides of things….that is all.

  24. You’re talking about one person, religion is irrelevant. Discrimination is summing up all the followers of a particular religion based on one experience with one individual who sounded rather rude. She discriminated you in much the way you’re now turning around and discriminating all Muslims.

    [0]
  25. You said “they”. That’s my first clue that you’re discriminating.

    [0]
    • ah, another “they/them” shamer. we all know what OP meant. lemme guess, you’re another white person quick to call out discrimination when you personally feel slighted by another person’s experiences?

      [0]
    • Wrong. Yes I’m Caucasian but I don’t recall feeling slighted. Not anytime recently. I judge people on what I witness of their own behaviours and not what others around them do or gossip that I hear about them. I also share my own experiences. Some good and some bad but based on what actually happened. Not what race or religion they are.

      [0]
    • Also, they/them/their are now the most respectful terms used in place of a gender pronoun when referring to a single person in the lgbtqa+ population, unless asked by the individual to use a different pronoun. Definitely not a “they/them shamer” there either.

      [0]
    • as a card-carrying member of the lgbt club i am not too proud (no pun intended) to admit any other letter than lgbt is completely redundant as those 4 letters completely covers every member of that community. as far as “they/them” pronouns go? don’t get me started. i fully respect gender identities but there’s no inbetweenies.

    I Am glad that for once you were made to feel what people who are discriminated against daily feel like. Even if it were for a passing moment in time. You should be happy that you have now had a chance to really really feel what it feels like to be judged on something you cannot change. To be unfairly judged.
    Good for you. Because you were born having white privilege ( simply means that you do not have to fight harder to not be discriminated against on a daily)
    So I say.. Be glad that you have experienced something that you didn’t like feeling. You were made to feel uncomfortable
    It’s a lesson that I hope you learn and can really take to heart.
    Just how hard it is to live where you feel different just because the color of your skin.

      I feel that there is nothing that can be done about it now. It happened. She now needs to let it go as someone who was being racist. And try to learn from the experience. It happened deal with it. And now she gets a new experience to what a lot of people have to go through every single day doesn’t make it right. But it makes it easier for her to put herself in others shoes for a minute

  37. Scott Duhig Scott Duhig says:

    The fact you have never felt this way until today shows exactly how little discrimination you have faced.

    If being called “white trash” as an adult is your first taste of discrimination and you want to make a big deal about it; imagine having grown up with it every single day.
    Not just name calling but losing out on employment opportunities, being followed in stores and the many other real issues of discrimination that minorities face daily.

    You got called a name once and want to start a white revolution to battle discrimination; minorities face it daily and yet you think it’s justified based on the single occurrence you’ve experienced.

    I think you’ve missed the fact you’re the “self entitled twat” here.
