My Fellow American Muslim
Mash’Allah. Shout out to the team at MyfellowAmerican.us for sending me this!
You have to give a lot of credit to anyone helping out in anti-hate campaigns.
At a time where American Muslims are being demonized and bigots are spreading hate campaigns, it’s great to see counter campaigns and projects like My Fellow American that are holding true to American values.
Check out the site out when you get the chance and spread the word through your social networks.
Here is a short except from the official My Fellow American website:
Most Americans have never met an American Muslim. Many only know Muslims through the way they are portrayed in the media. American Muslims are so often vilified as “the other” that it is possible not to recognize that most were born in the U.S. Or that those who immigrated here came seeking the same freedoms and opportunities that have always attracted people to America.
Muslims are our fellow Americans, who today face threats to their civil rights and even their personal safety because of the fearful and often hateful rhetoric that would not be tolerated were it uttered about any other minority group.
They are part of the national fabric that holds our country together. They contribute to America in many ways, and deserve the same respect as any of us. I pledge to spread this message, and affirm our country’s principles of liberty and justice for all.
