Anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour is never seen without wearing her trademark Islamic head covering, or Hijab. However, a new video has surfaced shows Sarsour admitting that she wears a hijab in order to be considered a 'person of color.'
In a video clip uncovered by popular blogger Elder of Ziyon, Sarsour says that "when I wasn’t wearing a hijab I was just some ordinary white girl from New York City. Wearing hijab made you know that I was Muslim."
The clip was part of a video released by Vox in January 2017 titled 'A beginners guide to hijabs.'
Despite her light skin tone, Sarsour commonly identifies as a person of color, and berates her critics for being 'white supremacists.' In August, Sarsour compared Zionists to white supremacists at a rally for controversial Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, saying that "We will not be silenced by Blue Lives Matter, by white supremacists, by neo-Nazis, or right-wing Zionists."
