Today Ivanka Trump participated in a roundtable about women’s economic issues during her father’s overseas trip to Saudi Arabia. The billionaire businesswoman and former fashion model sat among a few accomplished women of Saudi Arabia to address female empowerment in a nation that is known to be one of the world’s most repressive societies toward women.
No mention of Islam, sharia or Muslims! It's like that repressive society just materialized out of thin air. How revealing. But let's further ignore that repression and attack the daughter of the POTUS.
The ability of a woman whose financial stability is largely contingent on her last name and is made possible by the labor of others to participate in a roundtable discussion among local Saudi women speaking of female empowerment, rights and economic stability is a testament to her unchecked privilege. To let these nuances go unaddressed during her appearances is hypocritical.
The very next day, we get this story at Muslim Girl:
In news about white-people-getting-angry-because-they-won’t-google-Arabic-words news, white supremacists are organizing an anti-Muslim march on June 10. Carbonated News reports the Islamophobic marches are planned for several major cities across the country, including Orlando, Chicago, Dallas, and New York.
When the daughter of a rich man talks about female empowerment at the heart of Islam, she's a privileged bitch. When ordinary Americans march against that system which oppresses women, they are white supremacists.
It doesn't matter who you are. Just shut up and don't utter a word against Islam. Otherwise, these brave Muslim women will ... say mean things about you.
