I am not sure if everyone will agree with me on this post, but thats ok, it will give poeple something to whine about. In class we had a pretty big discussion about how people that look like they have a decent from the Iraq or Iran part of the world, are always used by the media as terrorists. First of all, has everyone forgotten what happened on September 11?? I can tell you exactly where i was and what i was doing when those planes hit our country and killed thousands of our citizens... I know it is probably not right for us to portray all of them as terroists in the media, But heay, i could care less.... You dont bomb our country and not get a bad rap for it. They honestly put themselves in their own position. Before September 11 we probably wouldn't even had considered them as terrorists, not nearly to the extent that we do today. As well, a lot of it has to do with their religion. They think that they are doing something good in the eyes of God, but many of them have been completely brainwashed. I know that it shouldn't be that a few bad ones ruin the rest, but in this case, i think it has to be that way! I would love to hear what the rest of the class thinks about this topic. I have very strong feelings for it and would just like to know where everyone else stands.

One true thing of the media is that if someone screws up, then it is usually bad news for everyone of that race or origin. In this case, i dont feel bad at all that they are put in that same position.


  1. So you are saying all Iraqis and Iranians are related and they are all bad? I also remember what I was doing on that day and it was a very terrible day for thousands of people. However I bet at least one of those people killed in that terrorist attack had at least one tie to the middle east and I bet they didn't want to die or have a family member, friend, or aquantince to die. Also the Muslim religion has some similarities to the LDS religion which is very interesting. Timothy Mcveigh bombed the building in Oklahoma City and he is a white man from America. He killed hundreds of innocent people. He probably loved America, so what mad him do what he did?

  2. I can understand how you feel about middle eastern people because of what happened on 9/11 but it doesn't mean that all of them are bad. If a white person were to go and kill a middle easterner, is it right for the middle easterner to think that all white people are murderers? There are soldiers in Iraq that are helping Iraqies and I've heard from my cousin who is in the army and was in Iraq that he met a lot of very nice and humble people while he was there. Every country, culture, religion, or race has bad people but there are good people as well no matter what.
