This clip was very riveting to watch and when I saw it potsed here on our blog. I was very excited because my friend told me about how this clip was showed in one of his BBH classes so I was compelled to watch it. I find the discrimination against the Muslim woman in the hijab disgusting. It s amusing to me that this case study was set up in Texas because I am from Austin, Texas and within our Muslim community I have heard several scenarios of racism and discriminatory treatment towards women who wear hijab. These cases of discrimination have shot up and become much more frequent ever since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. They have become more frequent because people view Muslims as the enemy, regardless if they are American Muslims or Muslims. The clip takes me back to conversations that we have had in our class. We talked about who is an American. Several American Muslims in the class stated that they do not feel like they are Americans even though they were born here. They are treated differently because of their ethnic features. The woman in this video clip stated that even though she was born here people look at her and say that she is not an American. Why does someone s religion prevent them from calling themselves American? What will it take for us to be accepted? This racism and hatred towards Muslims and Muslim Americans is a dark road that certain individuals in our society have started to go down. This road leads to no where positive and I applaud the individuals in the clip who stood up for the woman because to me, that is what a true American is.
