Once again, the albatross of social issues that is racism is being hung around the necks of every American. While the olympic games in Rio might be the most dangerous of all time, both environmentally and physically, one olympic athlete believes that it's far more unsafe back home in America.
Ibthihaj Muhammad, an American fencer and the country's first Olympian to wear a hijab, fears the anti-Islamic sentiment in the United States, and is no hurry to return home.
Apparently, the “racist incidents” happening in the United States that have created anti-Islam sentiment aren't easy on her. Well, what about the thousands of Americans, who no longer feel safe just walking out their front doors?
If terrorism has reached San Bernadino, there's really no telling where it could happen next. And the American people shouldn't be called “racist” for fearing those who practice Islam. After all, it's real life atrocities all over the world, carried out in the name of Islam, that have created this fear.
