It is okay for us to mourn over Boston, and over Baghdad as well. And at the same time, complain about the racist, retaliatory violence that we, as brown people in and outside the U.S. are forced to suffer as a consequence of such tragedies. It doesn’t mean we are minimizing the “American” tragedy. It means that we are hurting in more than one way, and looking to heal.

Neha Ray

Stop dismissing tragedies, all tragedies, and/or policing people’s concerns about the outcomes.
