My Fellow American - Racism in Islam 2012 (Video)

Friday, July 13, 2012

My Fellow American is a film and social media project that calls upon concerned Americans to spread a message that Muslims are our fellow Americans. It asks people to pledge and share a real life story about a Muslim friend, neighbor, or colleague whom they admire. My Fellow American seeks to change the narrative -- from Muslims as the other, to Muslims as our fellow Americans.

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.
