I am satisfied about your post because of how it addresses a serious issue in America. I myself am muslim and don’t mind when some joke about it but sometimes some go too far or even are fully racist.
One thing you said that stands out for me is: “Donald Trump spread hatred against Islam.” I think this is very accurate because Trump spread much hate towards Islam and some believe he is right as he is president. Many are uneducated about Islam and only see the bad about it but don’t bother with the good. Some muslims have twisted beliefs which corrupted how Islam is thought of, and many of these beliefs are forbidden in the religion itself.
Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was talking to some of my friends, when one made a very racist remark towards muslims. I gave them a warning, but they soon did another and I stopped any contact with them that I could control.
Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of how it may bring light to a big issue in society. I hope you will go more in depth about what Islam really is as it may bring more followers into the religion which always helps.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
