You know the world is doomed when someone felt compelled to create an illustrated guide that teaches people how to make things a little bit better for a random Muslim person that is getting harassed by some a-hole.
Maeril is a Paris-based illustrator that recently noticed the increased pressure experienced by the Islamic community in France. The rise in hate crimes and discrimination against the Muslim community is due to a number of recent tragic terrorist attacks in the country.
“I’m focusing on protecting Muslims here,” writes Maeril on her Tumblr page. “As they have been very specific targets lately, and as a French Middle Eastern woman, I wanted to try and do something to raise awareness on how to help when such things happen before our eyes – that way one cannot say they “didn’t know what to do”!”
