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
Many people around the world are taking to social media to to voice their opinions on Trump’s ban. The newly elected President states his ban on several Muslim countries will help the United States.
Like Yara Shahidi many families around the globe are affected by the new order. Social media stands with those affected by sending their support and finding out ways to help.
