Day 7: 1700% Project: Mistaken for Muslim

I had another plan for today's post, but then Heather showed me this video.

It's beautifully done, but the reason behind it, the message of what it's trying to show people is happening, is terrible.

Everyone should watch it because it drove me to tears.


  1. It really makes you think, doesn't it? Just because it's not all over the news doesn't mean things aren't happening to people. Just because they're "mistaken for Muslim".

  2. Scary. Unfortunately, such attacks are not taking seriously by the media. A couple of months ago a mosque in Joplin, MO. was burned to the ground. Also, there was the shooting attack on the Sikh template not long time ago. Just little reference were made about the motive which is known to be people mistaken to be Muslims. Of course, neither CNN or Fox news invited the so called "terrorism experts" because we all know these people are not terrorist they are just innocent white people gone wrong.

    1. It's like we discussed over on your blog the other day. There's a racial prejudice alive and well in the media, especially in their representations of crimes against PoC v. whites.

      I think people label the attacks, when they think of them at all, as hate crimes rather than terrorism.

  3. Yeah me too, this was actually one of the first videos I shared when I first began by blog 2 years ago.
