A young woman named Maigan Kennedy says she was harassed with anti-Muslim hate speech in Cameron Village, North Carolina last week for wearing a scarf on her head—and she isn't even Muslim, she just wore a scarf because it was raining (though that gauzy scarf couldn't have provided much protection). Kennedy decided not to tell the person who harassed her that she wasn't Muslim, however. "I didn't want to confirm his argument that being Muslim is somehow wrong," Kennedy wrote. "I also didn't want the scene to escalate by engaging in a verbal (or, heaven forbid, physical) fight with him." Instead, she went with a perfect, two-word response.
