In my opinion, it's awful.
I've seen so many people single out ethnic minorities (mainly brown people) for being ''terrorists''. For example, the recent Miss America winner was a Hindu American but twitter exploded with many ignorant calling her ''an arab terrorist'' and ''Osama Bin Laden would be proud'' - is this what the world has come to?
- She wasn't even Muslim
- Even if she was, it wouldn't matter
I can list so many other examples, even some I've witnessed personally.
But it seems in America, that many are ignorant of other cultures and religions. IIRC, a recent survey showed that 57% of Americans can't distinguish between Sikhs and Muslims.
Now not all of the education system is bad, not at all - but it's incredibly ethno-centric and since 9/11, I honestly feel that brown people are getting the worst of it. Now speaking more personally, I always hated 'black history month' - what is the point of this? Why not just integrate it into History? IMO, FOX News promotes Islamophobia (but that's just my opinion).
