I honestly cannot stand that wack ass Eid story snapchat does every yr. No diversity in race or region. Straight propaganda. #BlackOutEid

watching the Snapchat Ramadan story like....and then y'all wonder why #BlackoutEid was necessary.

Last year the hashtag #BlackOutEidwas used to spread selfies of people celebrating Eid. The hashtag was started by @krennylavitz, who told BuzzFeed last year she β€œwanted to see how other Black Muslims celebrated Eid”. This year it's being used to remind Snapchat that black Muslims exist.

Yet again, not one black Muslim on the Eid story on @snapchat πŸ€” This is why we need #blackouteid

Soon the fiery selfies started rolling in. πŸ”₯
