Humans of New York, as it is best known as, is run by Brandon Stanton – a journalist and a photographer who has brought a change to the whole world through his photographic journalism contributions in the past.
From his trip to Pakistan and sharing the pictures and stories of Pakistani people, to his work in Iraq and Syria – if any American knows what the common Muslim man is about, it is Brandon. In an open letter written to Donald Trump on Facebook, Brandon Stanton just murdered every last bit of hope Trump had on becoming president of The United States of America.
The letter written to Donald Trump has been shared about 300,000 times on Facebook in JUST ONE HOUR. Till tomorrow, you might find the number of times-shared to be over a million. Here’s what the open letter says:
“An Open Letter to Donald Trump:
I try my hardest not to be political. I’ve refused to interview several of your fellow candidates. I didn’t want to risk any personal goodwill by appearing to take sides in a contentious election. I thought: ‘Maybe the timing is not right.’ But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and prejudice. The time is always now. Because along with millions of Americans, I’ve come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.
I’ve watched you retweet racist images. I’ve watched you retweet racist lies. I’ve watched you take 48 hours to disavow white supremacy. I’ve watched you joyfully encourage violence, and promise to ‘pay the legal fees’ of those who commit violence on your behalf. I’ve watched you advocate the use of torture and the murder of terrorists’ families. I’ve watched you gleefully tell stories of executing Muslims with bullets dipped in pig blood. I’ve watched you compare refugees to ‘snakes,’ and claim that ‘Islam hates us.’
I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last two years I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different countries. And I can confirm— the hateful one is you.
Those of us who have been paying attention will not allow you to rebrand yourself. You are not a ‘unifier.’ You are not ‘presidential.’ You are not a ‘victim’ of the very anger that you’ve joyfully inflamed for months. You are a man who has encouraged prejudice and violence in the pursuit of personal power. And though your words will no doubt change over the next few months, you will always remain who you are.
Since Brandon took to Facebook with the letter, the response he has been getting from all over the world is unbelievable! People from every country of the world including Americans are supporting him and are ridiculing Donald Trump and his said ‘policies’. It’s only a matter of time before America actually realizes, Donald Trump is a psychopath who needs to be caged… not made President of one of the most powerful countries in the world.
