This blog is going to be all over the place. I don't mean popular; the content will be random and all over the place.

But you’re Muslim….. Oh my Chechnya. #kadyrov

In Chechnya/Russia this Santa figure is known as “Ghura Dada” (or “Ded Moroz” in Russian). He is connected with the New Year more than Christmas.

"Dzhokhar" and "Tamerlan" are on this list, including Cyrillic spelling. There are eight names which begin with "Dzh".

I also found “Bauddin” (Baudy) and “Yunus” (Junes).

Too bad the meanings weren’t included. I would like to know what all of their names mean.

"Djohar" comes from the Persian/Arabic word which means "jewel", and "Tamerlan" comes from "Timur-lang," a Mongol leader.

Hell no. CNN did not just call Putain “the renowned peacemaker of Chechnya.” 

Let me put my rage in a cooler like Colbert. 

I’m stuck between these two reactions:

and this…

Clearly CNN is forgetting how Putin went about getting his “peace”.

WHAT THE HELL! Renowned peacemaker of Chechnya???

So my mom’s from Chechnya and I asked about how she felt concerning the bombers being Chechen and she was just like
“yeah that would happen”


No, that would not happen. All Chechens are surprised that is happened, and especially in the US….

It’s because you said you’re half Chechen that I told you to not spread the stereotype. You can clearly do/say whatever you want as you have the freedom to do so, but as a Chechen myself, I didn’t appreciate it and had to say something. I can not say “yea he could do that” or “yea that would happen” about any of the Chechens I grew up around and know. So again, didn’t want the stereotype of Chechens being predisposed to blowing things up floating around.

No, that would not happen. All Chechens are surprised that is happened, and especially in the US. Chechens may have had a few instances in the past where they didn’t exactly do the right thing, but it was surprising at those times too. 
Don’t spread the stereotype.

kittylevin:

Hey,

So, I can’t be on Tumblr much this weekend, so I don’t know what folks are saying about the Boston Bombing suspects (confirmed criminals at this point, I think).

But I would just like to say that Chechens are not all terrorists, the Chechen culture is very cool and quite peaceful (or it was, before Russia tried to destroy it) and Chechnya is still horribly oppressed by Russia.  It was Russian oppression and war that allowed terrorist groups (many backed initially by foreign nationals) into the country in the first place.  Also, we don’t know who these Boston bombers had connections with, if anyone.  So please don’t hate Chechnya.  Tell your friends, too.  (And don’t listen to Putin or anybody.  They’ve never helped before.)

yanorayanora:

so while we’re at it, is there a possibility that the chechen brothers aren’t even the ones responsible for this shit

I’m having doubts myself. 

My Brain's Matchbox: It’s important to remember that the actions of a handful of young men...

winawinadajcie:

It’s important to remember that the actions of a handful of young men do not reflect their religion, their ethnicity, their culture. I’m disheartened by many of the comments I’ve seen on the internet about the Tsarnaev brothers. There is no excusing what they did, but neither is there an excuse to use it to fuel racist and Islamophobic sentiments.

It’s worth using it to analyze what factors in the world today can drive a 26 year old and a 19 year old to do such things. It’s worth considering the background of these young men, even in the context of Chechnya—for Chechnya has suffered greatly in the last few decades and, in many cases, the behavior of individual Chechens cannot be completely separated from this context. The factors that play into this are complicated, and they’re worth considering.

But the issue here isn’t Islam and it isn’t Chechnya. Muslims and Chechens are as human as anyone else, and are individuals with personal agency. A person’s behavior is not determined by his or her religion or ethnicity. Please, do not use one tragedy to fuel the fires of hatred that can lead to others. I am neither Chechen nor Muslim, but I ask that neither Chechens nor Muslims be judged by the actions of an extreme few. Such judgments can all too quickly lead to new tragedies.

Chechnya is the talk of tumblr but if you ask any given user on here “remember when the Russians leveled Grozny?” I guarantee you will get a confused response, if one at all
