We are Americans, we are family.

submitted by roguewolf on Thursday, September 13 at 12:19 PM

We are all Americans. Some of us natural born citizens, some immigrants, some just visiting. But we all are equal, we are Americans. During the course of these past 3 days, we have all seen too much hatred, too much anger with the worst word of all, race. Race has been used as an temporary scapegoat for our anger, an excuse to cope. And in this time of national and human crisis, it once again is dividing us, hurting us all. What happened on our day of Infamy, will forever haunt us, all Americans, regardless of religion, ethinicity, and race.

So it is NOW time to move on, to finally rid ourselves of our false, petty, and smallminded obession over RACE!! Do not attack your own because they are Muslim, Arab, or Islamic. Do not attack your own because they are White, Black, or Tan. These are not your ENEMIES... but your friends. The enemies are those whose cowardly act forever scarred America last Tuesday. They are not those of different religion/ethnicity, because they share all our grief here too at NC State...they are our friends and family, because they are Americans. It is time to let go of race...once and for all.

Thank you and I love you all. Peace

I would like to thank rougewolf for submitting such great material the past couple of weeks. I absolutely agree with what you've said and I hope that TWW as a community takes your words to heart. Thanks for your help and support. -scud

Focusing on the issue of hatred... some people want to use their anger as an excuse for racism. I believe that any form of hate solely based on a person's sex, race, religion, etc. is wrong. I have heard of accounts of Indian people getting beat up in Charlotte. Also here, in Raleigh, a family of Indian immigrants who own a local restaurant were harassed by teenagers from their neighborhood. In the same neighborhood another Indian immigrants tires were flattened. This is ridiculous! First of all, just because a group of extremists who happen to be Muslim have committed crimes against humanity and our nation does not give us reason to hate all Muslims just because og their religion, or Middle Eastern descent is completely unacceptable. And the ignorance is shown further by committing crimes against individuals who are neither Muslim, or of Middle Eastern descent. Let us be mature about this. There is no need to hate anyone. The perpetrators and those who harbor them will be brought to justice. We need not make other Americans suffer. After all, we are all just Americans.

Well the only way to ensure our safety from some of these extreme religious groups is to start limiting immigration. Our nation is too lenient on letting people in, as weve seen with those pilots. Although a few Arabs may have to suffer by not getting into the land of opportunity, the thousands of Americans' lives that could potentially be saved is far more important.
