Misrepresentation a ‘constant problem,’ says Muslim-American journalist misidentified by Vogue

“Misrepresentation and misidentification is a constant problem if you are Muslim in America,” she continued. “And as much as I work to fight this, there are moments like this where I feel defeated.
Tagouri later told CNN that she wasn’t surprised by the mistake, and that it happens “more often than not.”
“I’m so grateful and humbled by the support and conversation this has started,” she said in a text message. “This wasn’t about ME being misidentified and represented — it was about all marginalized people who are constantly an afterthought and not truly seen.”
