I am a Christian, black woman. I am not the most religious person in the world but I do believe that Jesus Christ died so that I could be here on earth. This is the way that I was raised. As I got older I began to do my own research into religion and what it entails just so that I could determine if this was a religion that I wanted to be a part of, and it actually was. In my neighborhood every Saturday and Sunday Jehovah’s Witness members come out to our place of residence and offer information on their religion. They are very forthcoming with their beliefs and always have their scriptures and pamphlets to back up every word they speak.
The religion I chose to do my research on is Islam, The word Islam means submission. Muslim people follow the Quran which is believed to be the revelation to humanity as opposed to the Holy Bible that provides.

Muslims have been discriminated against very heavily since 9/11. Everyone who believes in Allah is now being labeled a terrorist and it’s horrible because not all Muslim people are as evil as the man who conducted the plan to destroy our city. Osama Bin Laden should be the only one held accountable for those acts and whoever else decided to follow his teachings. It is unfair to blame the entire religion for his actions.
The information that I have found out while doing my research was very helpful and I will continue speaking with other members of different religions, cultures and races in order to get a better understanding. I empathize with all that they have to put up with and I pray for the best as they are concerned.
Some Hispanics have begun to follow the ways of the Muslim culture as well. In Florida they are on the rise. It is a little more difficult for them to convert according to a woman that was interviewed by Miami Herald News by the name of Marina Gonzalez. She speaks about how she converted to Islam and while following their religion there are certain things that you have to do. She was wearing a hijab and her family wouldn’t talk to her and her mother refused to go out in public with her. The only thing different about Muslims and Hispanics is the different language that they speak.
Both Muslims and Hispanics have been discriminated against throughout history by the KKK. Although they seem so different they are similar in many different ways in terms of sharing the same interests and beliefs on discrimination and racism. We all would like to see all of the negativity gets swept under the rug. No matter what religion, culture or race you are. There are certain things that are unacceptable all of our eyes. We all bleed the same the same blood and want equality and to put an end to all of the things that continue to keep us segregated. We are all created equally and all seen as individuals in the eyes of God and Allah. Let’s put an end to the things that keeps us burdened and living in the unknown. Get to know the person that you are discriminating against instead of following the people who are promoting all of the wrong things, Unity is the answer.
