Growing up Muslim in Arkansas

“When Nora was in junior high in Jonesboro, Ark., she would often find her locker covered in flyers about religious events and racial slurs. The black students at her school would help her tear them off.

“The bullying by her white classmates didn’t stop there. They would tell the young Muslim girl to “tell your family to stop blowing up our country” and call her a terrorist. When she was away from school, Nora would receive voice mails from boys and girls condemning her cultural background and Islamic religion.” [link]
