In Kurdish we call the Kurdish Sufis Dervishi’s, their ceremony resembles Kurdish folk dances, as they hold hands in a vigorous beat that will have every head in the place swaying to the beautiful sound of Kurdish daff and religious chanting. A Dervishi ceremony practises many rituals, with the primary ritual ordering it’s mystic followers to embrace Dhikr, involving the remembrance and gratitude of Allah with devotional prayers, and with the physical exertion of dancing, head swaying and whirling.
Hoping to get this boosted, because maybe it can save someone from hard times and get them a job at whatever establishment this racist ass manager is at.
(this was on NYT FB article posting about a (Black) mother Google searching her unborn child’s name to see what connotations and future it could hold for him)
And then you have people justifying this action. But a meritocracy exists right?
Andrew Moskowitz works for
The Cotton Warehouse*Monore Cotton Mills (how ironic), which is an event space in Atlanta Georgia. His supervisors Paul Rosenthal and Dawn Page, can be reached on Monday, 9/23 at (877) 305-6455. Thank you to @WeSeeRace and @HolzmanTweed for tracking down this info, verifying that he is employed there and also getting screen caps of previous racist Facebook statuses. Andrew, I hope you realize the error in your ways when you realize how difficult it is to find a new job because your racism has been exposed online for the entire world to see.
*edited to add: the company name was previously incorrect. apparently there are TWO event spaces in Atlanta that are former cotton factories. The number is still correct, as was confirmed this morning.
Reader submission: On middle class
Americans don’t really all think of themselves as middle class. It’s just that politicians never bother appealing to the actual poor because there is a perception that the poor never vote, and don’t want to sound like they’re appealing to the rich because everybody else will hate them for that. One of many things that make campaign speeches a bad place to look for a good idea of class in America.
