Be careful, white people. Murtaza Hussain is on to your scheme.
In response to the tragic news Wednesday that the man who killed a Canadian soldier before being killed himself in the country’s Parliament minutes later was a convert to Islam, Hussain posted a tweet that made a rather improbable claim:
Newest form of white privilege: converting to Islam, committing heinous act, dying, letting all the brown/black people take the heat for it.
— Murtaza Hussain (@MazMHussain) October 22, 2014
As you can see, Hussain, who writes for The Intercept, believes white people are purposely converting to Islam and killing people as part of a plot to set up “brown/black people.”
And to prove he’s carrying around some heavy animosity toward his brothers and sisters of a lighter skin tone, the politically correct Hussain attributes this audacious scheme to white privilege.
Naturally, social media users couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a little fun. Here a few responses, as seen on Twitter:
Damn you, whitey! MT @MazMHussain Newest form of white privilege: convert to Islam, commit heinous act, die, brown/black people take heat

@MazMHussain Oh jeepers, you caught onto our plan to discredit Islam. Guess it’s back to watching reruns of ‘Friends’ now, Mr Smartypants.

@MazMHussain So converting to Islam is definitely not a good idea for crazy honkies?

.@MazMHussain I’ve heard of whitewashing before, but this is a whole new level of hilarity.
