Who hijacked my religion?
Ali is fed up with the number of 'experts' paraded on tv to 'explain' Islam to the masses. He reminds us that the tricks of the trade are far from unique and have been used by the media before to demonize the targeted 'enemy.'
Don’t think we’re the first people who are victims of this propaganda.Coincidence? I don't think so.
Remember the way Japanese were treated during World War II?
Or the way African Americans were treated during the civil war movement?
You get the picture. History continues to repeat itself.
And the way that stereotype is built [in] a very sneaky, sneaky way.
You flip on the tv and you see images of black people stealing. I guess they assume if you see it enough times you’ll start believing that all black people steal . . .
Or, all Hispanic people cross the border so they can steal your jobs . . .
Or, all white people are trash, or all women are inferior to men.
And the false list of stereotypes goes on and on.
These tactics are nothing new. It’s the same tricks over and over again.
Is there anything we can do to stop them from spreading lies? Probably not.
But we can take our own minds back from the media. And we can stop giving them access to our childrens'.
Thanks, James (aka ksdrover)
