I don't use my Muslim name because I don't have one... I'm not Muslim. It's sad how unbelievably difficult it is for people to accept that there are caucasian people out there who aren't racist bigots and who can respect other ethnicities. I apologize on behalf of my race for instilling such hopelessness... I'm just trying to tip the scales over here.
