Casting a vote for former state lawmaker and congressional candidate Rashida Tlaib wasn’t about making history for Detroit voter David White… It was about making a difference. Rashida represents everything that undermines those stereotypes. She doesn’t just appeal to a Muslim community. I mean, she appeals to a wide swath of individuals, and it just so happens that she is a Muslim. That doesn’t define you and she doesn’t define you in the eyes of the nation. It also didn’t define Somali refugee and Minnesota congressional candidate Democrat Ilhan Omar to a diverse coalition of voters that helped her defeat the Republican challenger in her Minneapolis district. Tonight, throughout not only in my race but throughout the country, people are choosing hope over fear, and and unity over division.

While both women were elected in districts that heavily favored their political party, voters like Allison Brooks who cast her ballot in the same Detroit polling location, as Rashida Tlaib says, this historic moment was a long time coming.

It’s crazy that’s 2018, and you know this could be possibly the first time that this is happening, so I mean we need more Muslims and Congress…

Being Arab and being Muslim is always going to be a part of who I am, but just like Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, he was all about justice, so, so much of my faith is very much embedded in that justice.

Tlaib, who also becomes the first Palestinian American in Congress, promises her reputation as an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and his administration’s policies isn’t going to change as she makes the transition from candidate to congresswoman. It’s never going to happen. Yeah, it’s just it’s just not in me. I think people say to me all the time, we want a different and that’s why we voted for you. We need somebody that’s go in and fight, a fight Voter David White is confident she will deliver. Standing up in the middle of speech and you know shouting him down. We need some of that, right?

We need that strong resistance, even though I don’t necessarily identify, you know, with that style, a style that will be put to the test come January, when Tlaib and Omar enter Congress as freshmen lawmakers in a chamber their party will control. Now I get to march into the United States Capitol.

为前州立法议员、国会候选人拉希达·特莱布投票并不是为了名垂青史,至少对底特律选民大卫·怀特来说是这样。这样做是为了改变时局。拉希达代表着摧毁墨守成规的力量。她不只对穆斯林社群有魅力。我想说,她俘获了很多人的心,只不过她恰好是穆斯林,但并不是让选民投给她的决定性因素,在美国人民眼中她的身份不能决定我们的投票。她是穆斯林的事实也不是决定索马里难民、明尼苏达州民主党候选人伊尔汗·奥马尔的成败,不是让广大选民助力她击败共和党候选人失去明尼阿波利斯地区那一票的决定性因素。今晚,不管是我的族人们还是整个国家的人,大家都选择了希望,而非恐惧;选择了团结,而非分裂。

虽然两位女性在鼎力支持其所在政党的地区当选了,但包括艾莉森·布鲁克斯在内的很多选民虽然一直都有在底特律选区投票,但诚如拉希达所说,这一历史性的时刻他们等了很久。

这简直不可置信,毕竟今年已经是2018年了。这很有可能是第一次出现这样的选举结果,所以我觉得我们的国会需要更多的穆斯林议员。

我是阿拉伯人,我是穆斯林教徒,这个标签将永远伴随着我。但就像先知穆罕默德,他象征着和平与正义,所以我的信仰也是深深植根于正义的。

特莱布也是国会中的首位巴勒斯坦裔美国议员,她承诺自己批评特朗普总统及其政府推行政策的标签也不会改变,不管以前是候选人时,还是以后作为国会女议员都不会改变。我是不会改变的。没错,这种事情不会发生在我身上。我总是听到有人跟我说,我们想要听到不同的声音,所以我们给你投了票。我们需要的是敢于直面强权的勇士,而选民大卫·认为,特莱布就是这样的勇士。在他夸夸其谈时挺身而出,让他语塞。我们需要这样的勇士,不是吗?

我们需要这样强劲的抵抗精神,虽然我不一定认同这种风格。这种风格将在明年1月经历考验,因为那时候特莱布和奥马尔就会以新议员的身份进入国会,进入属于自己政党的国会。现在,我将向美国国会大厦进发。
