Actress and star of ABC’s Blackish Yara Shahidi is speaking out on Donald Trump and his Executive Order to ban Muslims from several countries. In a heartfelt post on her Instagram page she tells everyone she is a “…result of love.” Read below to see more of what the young actress has to say:
“I am the result of love. More specifically, Black and Iranian love. Of Shia love, of Christian love, of American love, of a love that highlights how interconnected we truly are. If my Baba was stuck in an airport because of a Muslim ban 39 years ago, he would have never fallen in love with my mama. I would not exist and I wouldn’t have two amazing brothers. Xenophobia destroys the power of love and the power of our collective potential. It creates a false sense of security for some and an environment of fear for others. Immigrants don’t threaten safety -stereotypical narratives that promote hate do.” Sincerely, A proud Black Iranian #nomuslimban #no wall #WeTooAreAmerica
