During the 2016 presidential campaign, Fatima Farheen Mirza's family received an unexpected gift.
At least, that's how it seemed when a neighbor's daughter delivered a bag of candy to their front door. Mirza's parents had recently moved to Texas. At first, Mirza's mother thought the candy might be a sort of welcome to the neighborhood.
"Then Mumma looked closer," Mirza writes.
It wasn't a gift bag, but a Ziploc plastic bag — "unadorned and filled only with Skittles."
