A Backlash Against Arab Americans

Abstract- The terrorist attack brought about so many problems. People started pointing fingers at the Arab Americans for the terrorism. Some people branded all Arab and Muslim Americans as the enemy. Many people were beaten. The violence threatened them on a daily basis. They couldn't wear their Islamic attire in public places. Attorney General John Ashcraft stepped in to stop this but tensions still remain high today.

Contextual Connections- People live off fear. They start to become so afraid that they will do anything to get rid of the threat. They rationalize their actions. It astounds me how people think that those who parents were foreigners would decide to attack when they were born in America. They started beating women and even made them change their ways. People are no longer American but some form of American.
