What would you do if your classmate said
I didn't get the job because they don't hire women.
As if vaginas rip open and swallow customers.
Or if your friend told you he still hasn't got an internship
Even though classmates with lower grades have.
He says with frustration in his eyes and a smile,
'Maybe it's because I'm Somali
And my passport says birthplace Mogadishu.
Add on my Islamic name and.
