I remember when I had to deal with racism. I think I was in the 7th grade and I barely talked to people. Whenever people heard my name they thought of negative things, like I was someone bad. I usually ignored it but one time it just got to me.
When someone got into an argument with me, he said stuff because I was Muslim. My friends stood up for me and that made me feel better. Now I am more accepted as just a human being.
But not so for everyone. Many Muslims are getting made fun of. There are a lot of stereotypes, such as all of us being terrorists and stuff. I don’t get offended as much now because I know it’s not true.
I also remember when I was watching a video on Facebook when Donald Trump had a rally. There was a Muslim woman wearing a Holocaust symbol. She had that on because she was comparing him to Hitler.
She was escorted out of the place and then Trump’s supporters started hooting and hollering at her.
