Barack the Terrorist

What's wrong with being Muslim or Arab? Absolutely nothing. While I don't follow my faith actively, I've still grown up around the muslim culture. All terrorists aren't muslims, all muslims aren't terrorists. America shouldn't associate islam immediately with extremists.

Now the subject of this blog is pretty simple, people have tried to rectify why they don't like Obama by saying he's a terrorist, he's arab, he's muslim. That's great, too bad it isn't true. His faith is regardless, and besides don't we live in a country that's supposedly seperate from the church (or in this case the mosque). What do people truly know about islam? Obviously not enough to make a fair assessment.

People are assholes, and I feel like I need to set an example for my heritage. I used to be ashamed, and scared to even mention what I was. It's all because of people's perceptions and pre-concieved notions based on stereotypes and lies.

Barrack Obama isn't arab he's a family man? I understand the sentiment, and i don't understand the fucking idiot who would even say that. There are over 7 million muslims in America, that's a pretty hefty chunk, and if you can't handle that we're here and that a few bad apples don't account for the entire tree, Then maybe you should consider finishing that application for the Klan.
