California Woman Wearing Headscarf Attacked As 'Hijab Wearing B*tch'

Vandals targeted a California woman who wears a headscarf for health reasons in a Monday attack, smashing the rear window of her car and leaving a note that read "Hijab Wearing Bitch."

After returning from a hike in Fremont, California, Nicki Pancholy found the rear window of her car broken, her purse stolen, and a note that read “Hijab Wearing Bitch. This is our nation, now get the F— out,” according to a report by Bay Area news site SFGate.

Pancholy told SFGate that she has lupus and wears a bandanna to protect her scalp from the sun. She said that she is not Muslim but was "scared" to return to the area after the attack.

1. Is anyone organizing some inspired way to offer support...

... to anyone so targeted? I am not inspired, but would be happy to join in.

3. I know of some Muslim outreach programs, but this woman wasn't even Muslim

I'm not sure where she'd find support.

This is what blind, irrational hate which has been legitimized looks like.

2. A Female Muslim class mate of My niece was spit on so much she had spit dripping from her face

... and that was on campus.

This is only one week out.

There are too many minorities for the country to turn back to the 50s though... fuck the racist

4. I just finished chemo...

...and just stopped wearing a head wrap ten days ago. I live in a pretty red area, and believe me, I was sure someone was going to comment on my scarf eventually. It didn't happen, but I had quite a few retorts ready just in case. I truly don't know whether it would help if we could separate the morons from the haters (or is there no difference?).
