How would you feel if you found out that you were being watched by the police because of your race and religion? In this clip, Linda Sarsour discusses her disappointment with the New York police for spying on Muslims for “national security,” as reports confirmed.
This video was posted less than a year ago. It is simply ignorant for anyone to even suggest that all Americans are extremely tolerant of other religions and races. While this issue was huge for Japanese-Americans after the Pearl Harbor bombing, it is clear that the issue of racial profiling is, unfortunately, still a large part of the United States today. As Sarsour mentions in this clip, racial profiling for Muslims (and, likely, other races) seems to be an even bigger issue today than it was “even days after 9/11.”
