I was just told a story about one of our young friends. He is a 12 year old Muslim boy who goes to middle school here. Let me just tell you, he is the sweetest kid. He is very well behaved, and he is really quiet and smart. Recently at school, a paper was found on the floor in his class saying something like “I want to kill Mahmoud because he is a Muslim terrorist.” The guy who wrote it was identified, fortunately, and he was expelled from the school.
I am absolutely disgusted! My little sister goes to that school, and I can’t even imagine that it could have easily been her. I was completely blown away that someone that age could have this much hate. I can’t help but think about what kind of parents that child has for him to write something so violent and hateful?! People seriously need to wake up and see what is going on. You’re telling me that racism doesn’t exist.You’re telling me that hate crimes are long gone. You’re telling me to get over myself when I say that these things are happening, but you know what? Why don’t you come back to the real world, where people are being murdered for their skin color, and kids are being threatened for their belief. You’re telling me that this country is built on the basis of freedom. What freedom? The freedom to kill people that don’t match up with the “american standards”?
I am absolutely sickened by this, yet I am glad that I will soon be out of this place for good!
