There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
And people say moderate Muslims aren’t speaking out against the extremists. Except they totally ARE.

This was not the only thing they thought was okay, here are some of the other offensive vehicles and teams.
Trigger warnings for massive amounts of racism. Please spread this, we need to make this known and gain the attention of the university, this need action.
for those who cannot view the images, they are a variety of cars which were made to fit the incredibly edgy theme of “Offensive as possible”, within there is black face and brown face, there are islamophobic stereotypes, transmisogynistic stereotypes, offensive gendered slurs, etc etc, the whole shebang.
Please do not let this go unnoticed. This took place on university grounds, and should not have been allowed to happen.
