A Backlash Against Arab Americans

Abstract:
Sept 11th Is one of the biggest dates in American history. This attack on the world trade centers is the biggest attack on American Soil. America was in shock during this and some very bad things happened following the massacre. Muslim women were getting beaten down. Everyone who looked Muslim was being judged and it was not right. People were getting killed and I was a major set back for the U.S.

Contextual Connection:
I can relate to this article because I was deeply affected by it. I was in the 5th or 6th grade when it happened. I remember watching the news all day at school when this tragic event happened. I don’t know any Muslims so I don’t know how it was for them when everyone was looking at them differently. This was a very bad day.
