Since 2001 and Ben Laden, I've always been wondering how young people in the US saw Islam.

Here in France, the tv and medias sell us an ideal of USA being so paranoiac and islamophobics.

And it seems to appear that the contagion is spreading throughout France and Europe more globally.
I am Muslim, from North Africa. And Islam represents nearly 7% of the population which is a lot !!

Also, as 90% of immigrants in france are now from muslims countries, they all live in suburbs (where poor people live) and muslims are 60% of the prisons population (fuckkkkk).
The worst in this story is that when Hip Hop appeared in France, it had been take by the poorest people and they were muslim (black and arabs).

So muslims in France are shown as the gangsters. They are like your black people.
This is why so many white people are now being affraid...

And how's Islam in the US ?

Hard to say, it really depends on the area.  I live in a more liberal city that is part of a state that can either go republican or democrat.  Over here, as long as you're down to party and are a good person in general people are willing to accept you no matter who you are. 

If you went to other parts of my state though, I'm sure you'd get the fox watching hicks that have a strong dislike of Islam.  Personally I think people that will judge a person just cause they're wearing a burqa or something are fucking tools.  Even if a dude wearing an obey logo over here, I won't hold it against him, because majority of ppl don't know shit about dressing well in these parts.  what I'm saying is that it's a relaxed town and I'm not about judging ppl on their religion/dress, it's about their character

Islam is cool with me and im an American. I never met another American who said they hated Islam, although I am sure there are plenty, most people are educated enough to realize a small group of radicals does not represent an entire population. People who hate Islam in the United States would typically be found in the deep south or in uneducated communities.

I mean it's kind of like the conflict about homosexuals.

If you are uneducated and allow yourself to be swayed by the opinions of bigoted politicians then you are probably going to believe that the country is about 20% gay and growing like a cancerous tumor, and theyre going to take over and destroy everything that you love.

But if you hold an iq of over 70 and can form an original idea, you've probably arrived at the conclusion that seeing as how the country only has 3-5% homosexuals who actually would probably be indifferentiable from the average citizen as they dont actually act like "fairy queens" you know?

If you're blind to the truth then yeah yoy may encounter those who view yoy as evil, but I believe the majority of us citizens to be more than capable of withholding their judgment of an entire religion.

If you believe that all us citizens are bigoted and racist idiots, thwn you yourself are passing judgment.

They're just people like you and me.

I'm not religious at all, so Muslims and Christians, and Catholics, and Jewish people are all the same to me. Wanna believe in a higher power? Go for it. Want to kill and destroy lives because of that higher power? Nah, get a new hobby.

But I view everyone as equal. Any time I think less of anybody is if I get to know them and they suck as a person. But race & religion doesn't affect that.

They smell like shit, and threat their women like shit.

This might be racist but i don't fuck with most middle eastern people.
I mean like 3 of my boys are Iranian or half Iranian, but they are integrated and not like most others.
But honestly so many middle eastern dudes are dicks, they are like the most aggressive people there is, like you will see a dude trying to ask for directions and it will look like he's threatening to kill someone. Also i can't stand how they treat their females like what the fuck is up with forced marriages, wearing a burka, being killed by your own blood for marrying outside of their religion... We are nearing 2014 and this shit is still so common? smh

I feel like it's a problem the older generations have caused, teaching their kids to defy their new country and forcing their lives in certain directions. It's most likely gonna dilute in time, with newer generations, but it's still some old bullshit.

Edit: I'm danish like the guy above me

where dyou guys live ?

Kobenhavn ?

I didnt know Denmark was like this ahah. Thought it was peaceful toward muslim people.

I love Copenhague and Denmark. Mostly fux with lars trier, nicolas winding refn is the man , and u used to have good football players :p
But, seen by french, Denmark seems to be a social and an integration model. Like allmost all scandinavia.

I saw Nordvest 2 weeks ago... Bad boys were the arabs... well..

We like middle eastern people that want to live here, and want to contribute to society / learn our language, but matter of fact is there is a ton of them that won't. Like i said i got some muslim friends, and i eat at a ton of middle eastern food places and they are always friendly and open there, no one minds those guys.

Problem is lots of the gang culture here is middle eastern, we pretty much only have that and a few dirty old bikers no one gives a shit about. So i think that's a reason why we tend to stereotype muslims as two groups, good and bad.

Also the only ass whooping i ever got was 6 middle eastern dudes that was salty i was about to take some bitch home from the club

If I ask this, its to see how muslim of all over the Western World act the same.

In France we have really important problems with integration and respect of France culture.

Last elections, the Front National, got 20% votes while the Socialist Party, the number 1 got 28%.

Front National is a xenophobic party....
Im telling my friends to stop act like this, respect France and stop stealing, beatin guys because they are "white rich"...
and my cousin got murdered because he was in drug dealing.

Problem is that i have cousins in england and they act the same lol... Racist towards England native, (stealing, criminal activities).
Just wanted to see how people were in the US.

The Front National are a fascist party and the fact that they get so much of the vote is a disaster and a direct result of the left in France not reacting nearly quick enough when the fascists moved from street politics to suit and tie politics like we did over here with the Anti-Nazi League and Unite Against Fascism .
Despite the FN not being in power they still pull the whole of French politics to the right. That's why in 2012 they banned the burqa while other conservative government's haven't.

I think people are afraid of muslims in the US.  It's like, they're either afraid of being afraid.....they don't wanna be called racist.  Then others are more blatant about their fear. They just think muslims are terrorists. 

And there's a problem.  I've met all sorts of muslims.  I've met a dude who called himself a NY muslim.  Basically, he believes in the allah of the q'uran, but he doesn't practice the religion to the T.   I've met ignorant aggressive hood muslims. And I've met incredibly peaceful tolerant loving muslims.    And obviously, we are all aware that there are murderous muslims.   And that is what makes people afraid.  You don't know which one you might be dealing with.  Then you have impressionable sheep who believe anything on a screen so being fed fear is not helping. 

Me personally, I just take it on a case by case scenario.   I can understand the Europeans fear.   Islam wants to take over the world, right?   From the little I know, the end game is for islam to be the sole religion on earth.  So, I mean, for a very secular nation(s) that is scary.  They're gonna see it as a threat to their way of life.  Is it right?  IDK. I don't know enough about islam and I don't know those immigrant's intentions.  But it can def look a certain way when you have a massive flood of people immigrating and demanding laws be changed to accommodate them. 

yeah im highkey pounding at my keyboard rn getting heated, but its really nothing we can do about it razz So how was your day today?
