For my first blog, I’m going to talk about an actual scapegoat in today’s society. For the past 15 years or so, America has treated Muslims as the scapegoat for everything that is wrong with our country. If you think about it and take a good look back in history, every minority group has been targeted and blamed for something in this country.
Is it the politicians or the media who are targeting groups, spreading lies and rumors, and getting the majority of the country on board?
People of Islamic faith, or Muslims, are very peaceful and loving members of society. Yet, they are all blamed for the horrible acts of a handful of people. Americans across the country are belittling people in their community because of their faith, all because they are told to hate these people.
