Greeting brothers and sister,

I and I give thanks and praises unto the Most High Jah Ras Tafari

I man has been working in a production plant and there is a youth that gives I alot of grief because Ian dark skinned and have Arab or eastern features, the boy calls the I terrorist,Osama bin laden,sand dollar, etc...

I usually keep I cool, but yesterday I anger got the better of me and I went off on the boy but I feel like I have stooped to his level. As I mother says if a dog bark at you do you stop and bark back?

what do the my brothers and sisters think I should do in a situation such as this?

As a Bahá'í, I've been called all those names before.

The important thing is to ignore them, if they start getting physical, turn the other cheek, if they keep going, defend yourself. I see why you burst like that, may God give you and I strength.

Get Up, Stand Up. Stand up for your RIGHTS!
Asserting the Iself in defense of abuse is not stooping to a lower level at all.
Reason as needed and be ready/willing/able to defend Livity.

One Love

Thanks all for the words of wisdom and consideration,I man tried to be friends with the youth but I received only his bitterness, so I just ignore the youth, and it has come to my attention that the boss has reprimanded him for his actions. I guess I and I is not the only one he had a big mouth with.

blessing and love my brothers and sisters
all praises itinually unto the most high Jah Ras Tafari
