Islamophobia in US: man abuses Muslim cab driver, calls him terrorist
A US man verbally abused a Muslim cab driver mentioning him as ‘terrorist’ and threatening him as he will ‘get deported’ as Donald Trump is going to become the president.
The man who abused the cab driver not yet identified. According to the Washington Post, the man was driving his sports-utility vehicle and can be heard calling another driver in a video an “Arab”, a “terrorist” and a “loser’.
“Trump is president! So you can kiss your f***ing visa goodbye, scumbag. They’ll deport you soon. Don’t worry, you f***ing terrorist,” he said.
Chris Cody’s driver was the man who received verbal attacks. Cody, professor at St Johns University who speaks Arabic, said he found out about the incident after striking up a conversation with his Uber driver, whom he knows only by his first name, Mohammed.
“Right before I picked you up, I had a horrible incident,” Cody recalled his driver saying. The abuse was unprovoked, said Muhammed.
According to Cordy, this incident is the sign of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiments.
As Donald Trump has gained the presidential election, the attrocities againsts muslims, blacks and other linguistic minorities have incresed.
