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.
