Amongst all the Challenge videos and vlogs about people taking their dog for a walk on the beach, occasionally a video is uploaded to YouTube which needs to be seen by the masses.
In a cultural environment which sees potential Presidency candidates calling for a total ban on Muslims entering the United States, Nabela Noor decided that she needed to speak up and defend her faith as a born-and-raised American Muslim.
“When I was nine, I remember being called a terrorist…”
This is a statement that should not exist. It should never have happened and the fact that Nabela speaks so openly about the Islamophobia that has challenged her entire lifestyle as an American female is deeply problematic.
Nabela’s video ‘Dear America’ is quickly racking up the views it desperately deserves as her heartfelt concerns and frustration surrounding the growing trend of hatred in her country becomes a topic constantly reflected in the countries national press.
The video is a must-watch for people either needing some background knowledge on the political climate in the US right now, or simply another video to fuel their desires to end the sadness across the globe. Share away!!
