360 VIEW: TAKES A LOOK AT MUSLIMS IN THE VALLEY
This week, our 360 view is on race.
But we include religion today, because many Americans consider Arab people— and Muslims one-in-the-same.
They are not, of course, but it’s difficult to discuss the differences in these post 9-11 times.
Cornell university did a poll and found nearly half of all Americans want civil liberties for Muslim “Americans” restricted.
The poll found 27% thought they should register their location with the government.
A total of 26% said the government should monitor their mosques and 22% approved of our government profiling Arabs and Muslims for extra scrutiny.
