Host, ‘AYMAN’ @aymanmsnbc on @msnbc
The BBC didn’t air Qatars World Cup opening ceremony in protest. Yet just 9 months ago, the BBC aired the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in China, a country literally accused of committing genocide. GTOH with your sanctimony. The epitome of hypocrisy and double standards!
@priyanica Those are all valid points of criticism and worth discussing. This piece was never a defense of Qatar’s labor practices. It’s a critical look at the nature of the criticism, who is making it and what their motivations are. Europeans can’t be selective advocates of human rights.
'The Turning Point: Split Screen' premieres THIS Sunday, Nov. 20th, at 10 p.m. EST on @MSNBC . Check out a preview of the film from @Trevornoah that explores how we got to this moment of polarization and disinformation. Tonight after @AymanMSNBC
@SunjeevBery @AymanMSNBCW @saharazizlawith all due respect Sunjeev, no body in their right mind is defending the treatment of migrant workers. My critique has been around the coverage of this issue, and how the west is using the plight of migrants as a vehicle to advance stereotypes and tropes of Arabs and Muslims.
Imagine being so Christian that you opt to vote for a man who reportedly committed violence against his family, fathered multiple children with different women, paid for an abortion and was absent as a father - rather than vote for a reverend who studied and taught Christianity!
Imagine 6 American Muslims arrested for a plot to "overthrow the government and kidnap a governor" and not using the word "terrorism" to describe it.
I want everyone to see and hear this incredible black woman sitting in the rain in Georgia with her son for 3 hours to vote. And then I want you to ask yourself why in this day and age - with America having the ability to put a man on the moon & land a space shuttle back on earth
BREAKING: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s decision to speak at the RNC tonight is now under investigation by the House.
Now do you understand why calling it the “China Virus” can fuel real life and death consequences for Asians and Asian-Americans?
