ABSTRACT
The article provides the author's insights on racial profiling against Muslims. She notes that Muslims are discriminated at schools, public places and airports, especially in the U.S., because they are suspected of being terrorists. She argues that not all Muslims are murderers and majority of them contradict violence, just like her Muslim friend who is the one of the kindest people. She believes that religion is not really the problem but the desire of political leaders to become powerful.
