America: Land of Freedom

Reader comment on item: No Islamic Law in Minnesota, for Now

Submitted by Hill Billy (Kuwait), Oct 22, 2006 at 16:42

I am quite impressed with most of the views shared in this site. America is truly the land of freedom.

Americans express their views freely and it is obvious that they all are intimidated by certain races and religions. I know minorities such as African Amercians, Latinos, American Arabs and Muslims from all around the world are not the most welcomed people in America, but sometimes it is wise to understand why people have racist views against them (all of them).

One never asks why Jews wear the cap and accept it as part of their religious faith. One never asks why Christian Nuns wear veils and don't show any skin but nevertheless people respect them. When it comes to the unwelcomed races, all the sudden, these races have no excuse to believe in anything that doesn't match that of the general American public.

So much for freedom.
