So weird how our prejudices have
given everyone their lane. Middle easterner does
something, their a terrorist Black person does something their
gang related, their a thug but if a white guy walks into a
church killing 9 people dead what do they lead with on the news? “And today in an isolated incident a lone gunman walked into a church
opening fire and killing 9 people” its always a lone gunman, yeah “A lone gunman with no ties to society what-so-ever” they always separate him as quick as
possible, I love how they do that “He kept to himself and was
notoriously unfriendly, he had no friends what-so-ever” No friends, really, no friends? not even one? not even one? No friends? like not even on Facebook? everyone has friends on Facebook come on, you telling me
the guy had no friends its almost as the shooting
happens everyone is like What, Dylan? Unfriend, unfriend, unfriend unfriend, unfriend, unfriend, unfriend, unfriend. its the weirdest thing ever. and the first thing they always go to is mental instability that’s what they go
to, the first thing they never go with terrorism. What happened, are we
saying this was terrorism? Well we are not going to
jump to that conclusion this was a young man who
was really mentally he was unstable, he was
a troubled young man but he was a terrorist. he committed a terrorist
act, walked into a building shot a bunch of people to try and
spread a message of hatred right? he was trying to pass something he was trying to do something that’s an act of terror “Well not neseserally, he
was a troubled young man” Yes, and a terrorist. “Yeah, but he was mentally unstable” Just like terrorists He is exactly what a terrorist is there’s no normal reason
to blow yourself up that’s ridiculous as shit. You’re crazy. You’re crazy but you’re still a terrorist. it’s almost like without realizing it what they are saying on the news is “You know this young
white man is clearly struggling with something, I mean because why would you forgo all that
privilege, why would you? I mean he was a young white man why would you throw that all away I mean if he was a
minority I’d get it because that shit sucks, but I mean why would you throw it
away, he must be crazy.” This is madness, I refuse
to be part of this I refuse to live in a world who will deny white people the monocle of terrorist that’s racism people,
that’s what that is if a white man through hard work and
determination commits an act of terror he deserves to be called a terrorist he worked for it dammit, you
don’t deprive him of that because of the color of his skin. you give it to him and
you put him up there Bin Khalid and Charlie it’s terrorism we all have our prejudices,
don’t get me wrong it’s not like I I try to be better, I really do I realize every now and again I do
things I’m not particularly proud of like for instance whenever I fly into America if I’ve been out of the country
and I’m flying back into America I always try to fly on middle-eastern airlines specifically. so I fly on Emirates or Qatar
or ATE or one of those and the reason I do this is because I feel there is less chance that somebody Um that somebody, and this may
sound a little bit racist you have every right to be offended, you really but I feel like there’s less
chance that somebody will attack one of those planes. for a few reasons number one, because their
not proving a point Plane’s already Muslim owned, Muslim run their not converting anybody and secondly and more
importantly on my side I think there’s a small chance
somebody can defuse the situation somebody could talk them down just
because they speak the same language that’s half of terror for me is the fact that you don’t
understand what the person says Guy’s speaking Arabic, Arabic that puts fear in the hearts of all men (speaking Arabic) you never think good things
when you hear Arabic yeah, we’ve watched to
many movies and T.V shows like whenever you hear
Arabic some bad shit happens immediately, that’s always what happens (speaking Arabic) (Explosion) it’s never something cool
or sexy, its never like (Sexy Arabic)
(Explosion) It’s never that. and so it makes you think, it
makes you think a certain way I know, I know I am not any different I was on a flight my first middle-eastern flight flying on a Emirates plane and this man emerged from the galley,
had a long beard and he was carrying a box and he
just went off, he was just like (Speaking Arabic) and I was like Agh!! Agh!!! Chicken please. Chicken Sorry, I I get really excited for chicken I’m sorry for that Sorry He’s like,”My friend, excited? you looked petrified” I said I am, of the flavour. Chicken!
Whaa! I love chicken, I
love chicken so much. He’s like, “oh? is that a black thing?” I said to him, that’s racist. it just its the little thing that makes
me think there’s a chance that if someone understands the language they may be able to talk the guy down there could be, there could
be terrorist on the plane a guy with a suicide vest we’ll be flying
40 000 feet in the sky a man jumps up, losing his head there he is
(Speaking Arabic) and just maybe, maybe some guy
will be opposite him like “Hey! what are you doing?!” “I am going to blow up this plane to
show everybody that Allah is great!” “Yeah, but we know this everybody here knows this so what are you doing?” I want to show all of
you the power of Allah what are you sowing us
if we already know huh? what are you showing us, you are
saying we are not good Muslims? is that what you are saying? huh, are you saying we don’t
know the power of Allah? is that what you re saying,
you’re saying we are bad Muslims what are you saying? no my friend I was not
trying to offend you I was just trying to kill you listen to me, I wanted to show you what are you showing me, huh? are you saying I do not pray,
is that what you are saying? you are better Muslim than me? you think I’m not a good Muslim because I am watching “Cloudy
with a Chance of Meatballs” is that what you think? huh, what are you saying? No I am not saying, I wanted to you show nothing, you
make us look bad why don’t you preach, why
don’t you talk to people huh? this is not Islam, what are you
doing with your stupid vest? blah, blah, blah
you make us all look bad! No, I was not no you are not trying nothing you even got your vest on backwards,
you don’t even know what you are doing sorry, this is my first time
I’ve never done this before Yeah, yeah, stories,
stories, sit down shut up, eat something! don’t worry it’s all
Halaal, you can eat it. you can eat it, eat it. Stupid! there’s a chance that could happen there’s a small chance
that could happen. and that’s why I do it
