I never intended 9 – Until? to be a platform for me to rant about injustice not directly related to the core of the niche I strive to serve. Still the fact is I have a position and an outlet to express it when it comes to matters that hit home such as the despicable abuse that Kenyan national Asma Mohamed Jama suffered at a Coon’s Rapids, Minneapolis Applebee’s.
While minding her own business with her husband and friends, Asma Mohamed Jama was severely attacked by a white woman who apparently imagines herself as a champion of American integrity named Jodie Burchard-Risch.
Asma spoke to a CBS affiliate in Minneapolis and said, “I live in America. I can speak English but we prefer to speak our own language if it bothers you I’m sorry.” She talked about the attack saying, “Emotionally, that has destroyed me to be entirely honest.” A friend of Jama’s set up a GoFundMe to help with her medical expenses, raising over $10,000.
“The current charge is insufficient to communicate the seriousness of and possible bias motive for the alleged attack,”CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said Friday in a news release.
Make no mistake had Asma been a Russian speaking white Christian male here illegally from Eastern Europe the incident would not have occurred!
