The Recent U.S. Terror Plots You Won't Hear Donald Trump Talking About

The president's decision to approach terrorism exclusively as a Muslim issue is dangerous.

As President Donald Trump struggles to defend his decision to halt refugee resettlement and immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations, it's become increasingly clear that the executive order he signed on Friday is a solution in search of a problem.

Islamophobia may sell in the White House, but many Americans find it hard to buy his argument that the order will keep out "radical Islamic terrorists" but is "not about religion."

No refugee from any country targeted in Trump's ban has carried out a fatal U.S. terror attack. This fact is inconvenient for Trump. He first proposed what critics ― and reportedly, Trump himself ― referred to as a "Muslim ban" in December 2015, after a Muslim couple killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California.

Syed Rizwan Farook, the husband, was an American born in Chicago. And Tashfeen Malik, the wife, was a legal permanent resident of the U.S. whose native country, Pakistan, is not included in Trump's order.

Trump, Fox News and Swedish Crime Statistics

On Saturday Trump referred to what seemed to be an alleged terror attack in Sweden the day before. He talked about the U.S. Migration Ban and justified it by mentioning an "incident" in Sweden. But nothing remarkable happened in Sweden that Friday (I am from Sweden). It is more probable that Trump was talking about a TV segment that aired Friday evening on Tucker Carlson (Fox) about "Muslim Migration" to Sweden and alleged exploding "crime rates" in Sweden.

Fox claims that "Muslims" who migrate to Sweden has increased the rates of crime astronomically and to prove this they are interviewing Ami Horowitz. He makes a lot of claims about refugees in the short segment while the TV shows pictures of Muslims and of people rioting. The aim of the claims are to make people scared; they want to fool people to view immigration as something negative, and dangerous.

I am a Swede that loves this U.S.A. and Ami and Fox News are WRONG!

The Number Of Anti-Muslim Hate Groups In The U.S. Tripled In 2016

The Number Of Anti-Muslim Hate Groups In The U.S. Tripled In 2016

A new Southern Poverty Law Center report connects the rise in anti-Muslim hate to the rise of Donald Trump.

The number of anti-Muslim hate groups in the U.S. nearly tripled in 2016 partly because of Donald Trump's rise to political power, suggests a new report.

There were 34 such groups in the U.S. in 2015 and 101 last year, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center's Annual Census of Hate Groups published Wednesday. That's a 197 percent rise and "by the far the most dramatic change" among extremist groups in the U.S.

"Anti-Muslim hate has been expanding rapidly for more than two years now, driven by radical Islamist attacks including the June mass murder of 49 people at an Orlando, Fla., gay nightclub, the unrelenting propaganda of a growing circle of well-paid ideologues, and the incendiary rhetoric of Trump — his threats to ban Muslim immigration, mandate a registry of Muslims in America, and more," Mark Potok, a senior fellow at SPLC, wrote in the report

Anti-Muslim hate groups nearly triple in US since last year, report finds

Southern Poverty Law Center credited rise in racist and far-right groups to Donald Trump's 'incendiary rhetoric' and his senior staff of 'anti-Muslim ideologues'

The number of organized anti-Muslim hate groups in America nearly tripled last year, from 34 to more than 100, according to a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-leaning non-profit that tracks extremist groups.

The center credited the "incendiary rhetoric" of Donald Trump's presidential campaign with fueling the rise in anti-Muslim hate, along with anger over terror attacks like the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando last June.

#MuslimBan - As Trump Closes Doors, Mosques Open Doors

#MuslimBan - As Trump Closes Doors, Mosques Open Doors

As Trump closes the doors of the US to Muslims with his travel ban, British Muslims open the doors of their mosques to welcome everyone.

This week has seen some of the largest marches in recent history, across the world, against Donald Trump's executive order to temporarily block travel for immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries- Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. It also stopped the admission of all refugees to the US for 120 days. The weeklong protests are preceded still by the global Women's March, immediately following Trump's inauguration day.

The #MuslimBan order is bigoted and discriminatory. It has resulted in fear, anxiety and stigmatisation of many families and homes because of their religion. The executive order is not only a full-frontal assault on the civil rights of Muslim citizens in the US, it is a dangerous and self-defeating policy. It purports the attacks of 9/11 as a rationale for such replusive ban, while exempting the countries of origin of all the hijackers who carried out that plot. However, no citizens from those war torn-seven countries has ever committed terror on US soil. Terrorism doesn't have a nationality; Since 9/11 more Americans have been killed by homegrown right-wing extremists than by terrorists from any Muslim country.

The Pope Just Threw Shade At Trump In The Classiest Way Possible

That's some holy shade.

Pope Francis hasn't yet directly addressed President Donald Trump's executive order on refugees and immigrants ― but the pontiff is clearly thinking about the large swath of humanity Trump is shoving to the margins.

Days after Trump signed a sweeping order dramatically restricting the number of refugees and foreign nationals allowed to enter the United States, Francis called on his flock to pray that the "poor, refugees, and marginalized" would find "welcome and comfort in our communities."

Curiously, he mentions "skyscrapers" and "real estate deals" ― two things the president is intimately acquainted with.

"We live in cities that throw up skyscrapers and shopping centers and strike big real estate deals but they abandon a part of themselves to marginal settlements on the periphery," he said in the video published on February 2. "The result of this situation is that great sections of the population are excluded and marginalized: without a job, without options, without a way out. Don't abandon them."

6 Rules Of Islamophobia In America

The Huffington Post tracked Islamophobia in the U.S. throughout 2016. Here's what we learned.

After the 2015 terror attack in Paris, when Donald Trump and other GOP presidential candidates were ratcheting up their anti-Muslim political speech, we started a running list of Islamophobic acts. Sadly, in less than two months, the list became so long the webpage often wouldn't load.

This made us recognize the very real surge in anti-Muslim incidents sweeping the nation — a surge many wanted to deny was happening at all. (Think Fox News host Eric Bolling saying he "hadn't heard of any" anti-Muslim hate crimes.)

So we developed The Islamophobia Project, and committed to tracking anti-Muslim violence, vandalism, discrimination, public policy and political speech throughout 2016.

The timing of the incidents we collected helped reveal patterns. We discovered that Trump supporters attacked, harassed, or plotted to kill Muslims at least 13 times during the election cycle, proving a potential link between Trump's rhetoric and the actions of supporters. We documented apparent surges in anti-Muslim incidents during Muslim holidays.

Why Some Christians Will Be Praying At Mosques During Trump's Inauguration

Why Some Christians Will Be Praying At Mosques During Trump's Inauguration

"We're here to remind our Muslim brothers and sisters that they belong here, and we love them."

As the country inaugurates its 45th president ― a man whose rhetoric, proposed policies and closest aids are openly hostile to Muslims ― a group of progressive Christians is encouraging people of conscience to visit their local mosques and stand in solidarity with their Muslim neighbors.

Los Angeles-based faith group Progressive Christians Uniting announced the initiative to its network in a newsletter in early January. At least seven independent groups of Christians and other concerned citizens throughout California will be joining Muslims in prayer as President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office, the organization said in a press release.

"As people of faith, we consider religious freedom for all people to be a priority," Rev. Paige Eaves, president of PCU, told The Huffington Post. "We are concerned that if one form of religion can be targeted for registration, surveillance, and other violations of civil rights, then the same persecution could happen to any form of religion."

Fight Trump's Hate And Keep Fighting It

There is little need to recap the chaos of the last few days. Certainly to anyone with a social media presence or who reads the newspapers the horrors have been all too evident. The values that make up the very fabric of our societies are being challenged by hate. Our humanity and principles are threatened by a wave of Nationalistic hatred that now legitimately warrants the comparisons to Hitler's Germany.

Donald Trump becoming the President of the USA was so farfetched a year ago as to be laughable. It seemed inconceivable that a man who is willing to discriminate on faith and origins of birth could be appointed to be leader of a country whose very foundations are based on tolerance and, indeed, on immigration. But become the President he did.

Did the tolerant left underestimate Donald Trump or did we overestimate ourselves? Were we so secure in the values of liberal democracy that we neglected to treat the rise of the far right with the caution it warranted? Did we fail to understand the need for change and fail to empathise with the desperation of those who would turn to anyone, even far right haters, if they promised that change.

Jewish Holocaust survivors who fled Nazi Germany and other countries as children have a request for President Donald Trump: "Keep the doors open to refugees."

In a letter to Trump released Monday, more than 200 family members and survivors of the Kindertransport ― a program that sent around 10,000 Jewish child refugees to Britain from Nazi Germany and other European nations ― urged Trump to continue to resettle refugees, especially children, in America.

Catholics Should Be Familiar with Breitbart and Trump´s Migration Ban

Is the hatred of Muslims and Trump's "Migration Ban," consistent with Catholic values? That is something Breitbart writes much about, and for them the answer to these question is yes. Several of their leading editors and journalists are Catholic, like Milo Yiannopoulos and Steve Bannon.

But Catholics should remember that 90 years ago racists, led by the Ku Klux Klan, demonized the Catholic Church with a rethoric similar to Breitbart today. As for the "Migrant Ban," Catholics were partially victims of the "Migrant Bans" of 1921 and 1924.

There are many similarities between Breitbart's hatred of Muslims today and the hatred of Catholics in the history of the U.S.A.

"Restricted immigration is not an offensive but purely a defensive action. It is not adopted in criticism of others in the slightest degree, but solely for the purpose of protecting ourselves." Coolidge 1924 Republican convention.

13th: From Slave to Criminal with One Amendment

13th is a documentary film produced by Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, exploring the history of racial inequality in the US, that has manifested itself in different forms, one of which is the mass incarceration of African Americans. The US population comprises 5% of the total world population, yet 25% of the world's prisoners are in the US, ironically the land of the 'free'.

The name of the film 13th refers to the 13th amendment (XIII) of the US constitution that abolished slavery and involuntary servitude except as punishment for a crime and here where the mythology of black criminality that led to the mass incarceration of African Americans began. As a British Muslim woman committed to fighting and tackling Islamophobia, watching such a film has not only raised my awareness of the struggle of those who belong to the black minority people and communities of colour but also opened my eyes to the tactics and methodology of oppression allowing me to draw parallel lines between the discrimination of African Americans and the discrimination of Muslims.

The film shows how black criminality has been portrayed for over 100 years, by painting certain images that match well with the white imagination of black slaves as being savages, animalistic and rapists. An example of such a portrayal is a silent drama film produced in 1915, titled The Birth of a Nation that showed black men as animalistic, unintelligent and sexually aggressive towards white women.

Donald Trump's Silence On The Quebec Mosque Shooting Is Dangerous For American Muslims

Alienating the Muslim community is going to have a top-down effect.

On Sunday night, Alexandre Bissonnette, a 27-year-old white man, opened fire inside a Quebec City mosque, killing six people and wounding eight others. Witnesses said the mosque gunman fired indiscriminately into the crowd of worshipers, which included men, women and children.

When news first broke of the shooting, right-wing outlets erroneously depicted the shooter as Muslim. Fox News wrote in a now-deleted tweet: "Suspect in Quebec mosque terror attack was of Moroccan origin, reports show." The tweet was one of many uncorrected media reports about the suspected shooter's ethnic origins. Many outlets simply did not cover the shooting at all.

A Muslim man, Mohamed Belkhadir, initially mistaken for a second suspect turned out to have been a witness who ran back into the mosque to save lives.

A spokeswoman for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau immediately criticized Fox News and said the coverage was "perpetuating fear and division" and "dishonour(ed) the memory of the six victims and their families by spreading misinformation." Fox later said they corrected their tweet and story.

This Texas Man Has A Message For American Muslims In A Donald Trump Presidency

"You Belong. Stay Strong. Be Blessed. We Are One America."

One small sign; one big message.

A Texas man was photographed holding a sign on the side of a road outside the Islamic Center of Irving, near Dallas, reading: "You Belong. Stay Strong. Be Blessed. We Are One America."

A passerby snapped a photo of the man, dressed in a cowboy hat and checkered shirt, and shared it on Twitter Saturday, where it quickly went viral.

A representative for the center told The Washington Post that the man had been standing outside the mosque with his sign for days. He wanted to show support for the local Muslim community after Donald Trump was elected president this month following a campaign dominated by anti-Muslim pledges.

On Monday, the man identified himself as 53-year-old Justin Normand. He said the gesture was about "binding up the wounded."

Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes Up By 67 Percent In 2015, FBI Says

The number of hate crimes reported to police nationwide surged in 2015 by 6.7 percent compared to 2014, according to date released by the FBI on Monday.

Far outpacing the national increase in hate crime overall was the elevated number of bias crimes against Muslims. The FBI said there were 257 anti-Islamic incidents last year compared to 154 reported in 2014, an uptick of 67 percent. That was one of the largest increases against any group, according to the bureau's data.

It's a level of Islamophobia unseen since the Sept. 11 attacks, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

"We believe this jump in anti-Muslim incidents should push our nation's leaders to finally come out against the growing Islamophobia in our society," said Council on American-Islamic Relations spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. "This repudiation should start with President-elect Donald Trump, who rode a wave of Islamophobia into the White House."

Overall, there were 5,850 hate crimes counted in this year's FBI report. African Americans were targeted more than any other group. The FBI said there were 1,745 anti-black crimes last year, or 7.6 percent more than in the previous report. There were 614 anti-white crimes in 2015, compared to 593 the year before. The number of anti-Hispanic or Latino crimes was unchanged, at 299 in the two most recent reports.

Trump Wins, Islamophobia Rises

Since the result of the US elections was announced, America has borne witness to a sharp increase in Islamophobic hate crimes.

For instance, in Ann Arbor, a female Muslim student at the University of Michigan was approached by a stranger who threatened to set her on fire if she didn't remove her hijab. In Georgia, a female Muslim high school teacher was left an anonymous note. Scribbled on it was a message stating that her "headscarf isn't allowed anymore". It went on to suggest that once she had removed her hijab, she could use it to hang herself. Likewise in Ohio, a Muslim woman along with her children and elderly parents were threatened by a man while they were stopped in their car at traffic lights. Shouting obscenities at the terrified family, the man told the woman that "she doesn't belong in this country". In many ways, it is somewhat unsurprising that such an upsurge in Islamophobic hate crimes has coincided with Donald Trump's emergence as president-elect.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a non-profit organisation that tracks hate groups and hate crimes, this post-election upsurge has been manifested in more than 300 recorded incidents of 'hateful harassment and intimidation'. To give this figure some context, the SPLC report that 300 incidents is more typical of the number of Islamophobic incidents reported to them in a five to six month period rather a six or seven day equivalent. In a statement from the SPLC, the catalyst for this unprecedented surge has been "Trump's hate-filled campaign".

Donald Trump: The Islamophobia president

Trump rose to power with an Islamophobic campaign and Islamophobia now will become his official policy.

Khaled A Beydoun is an associate professor of law at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law.

Islamophobia won resoundingly tonight. Instead of the first female president, the United States got its first Islamophobia president.

From start to finish, the 2016 presidential election vividly revealed that Islamophobia is alive, and potent and politically resonant as ever. Scapegoating Islam and vilifying Muslims was far more than merely campaign messaging; for Donald Trump it was a winning strategy.

Trump's full-blown Islamophobia resonated deeply with voters. Moreover, it mobilised more than just a fringe or rabid demographic, but a sizable segment of the American polity to cast votes in his favour.

It helped him carry Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, and virtually every battleground state.

Ben Carson: This is the guy Donald Trump has nominated to be HUD secretary.

President-elect Donald Trump has nominated a man for secretary of Housing and Urban Development who thinks Islam isn't a religion and has argued that there's a covert Muslim plot to destroy the U.S. from within.

It's concerning that Ben Carson is set to fill a seat in Trump's Cabinet, a Muslim civil liberties group said Monday.

"Based on his past Islamophobic statements and policy positions, all Americans should be very concerned on how Dr. Carson would treat Muslim HUD employees or Muslims seeking agency services," Robert McCaw, government affairs director at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said in a statement.

"You Belong. Stay Strong. Be Blessed. We Are One America."

One small sign; one big message.

A Texas man was photographed holding a sign on the side of a road outside the Islamic Center of Irving, near Dallas, reading: "You Belong. Stay Strong. Be Blessed. We Are One America."

A passerby snapped a photo of the man, dressed in a cowboy hat and checkered shirt, and shared it on Twitter Saturday, where it quickly went viral.

A representative for the center told The Washington Post that the man had been standing outside the mosque with his sign for days. He wanted to show support for the local Muslim community after Donald Trump was elected president this month following a campaign dominated by anti-Muslim pledges.

The number of hate crimes reported to police nationwide surged in 2015 by 6.7 percent compared to 2014, according to date released by the FBI on Monday.

Far outpacing the national increase in hate crime overall was the elevated number of bias crimes against Muslims. The FBI said there were 257 anti-Islamic incidents last year compared to 154 reported in 2014, an uptick of 67 percent. That was one of the largest increases against any group, according to the bureau's data.

It's a level of Islamophobia unseen since the Sept. 11 attacks, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Donald Trump Says U.S. Should 'Start Thinking About' Using Racial Profiling

Donald Trump on Sunday said the U.S. will have to consider the use of racial profiling in the wake of the Orlando nightclub massacre, defending the practice as ''not the worst thing to do.''

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee, who last week renewed his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country in the days following the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, said America should look ''seriously'' at racial profiling.

''I think profiling is something that we're going to have to start thinking about as a country,'' Trump said in a telephone interview with CBS' Face the Nation. ''You look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling, but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads.''

Muslims increasingly racially profiled on US planes in 2016

A Muslim group has urged the United States Department of Transportation to take action to address the profiling of Muslims, people of colour, and persons perceived to be either by US airlines.

''Since September 11, 2001 the unlawful profiling of airline passengers on the basis of race or religion has become disturbingly common. Within the past six months alone, 11 racial and religious profiling incidents have been reported, including five since April 1,'' the group, Muslim advocates, posted on their website.

Muslim student taken off US flight for speaking Arabic

Summing up the recent instances of religious and racial profiling, the San Francisco based group along with NAACP Legal Defence and Educational Fund, Inc (LDF) said passengers have recently been removed from flights for, among other reasons, speaking Arabic, completing a math equation, or ''staring at'' a flight attendant. In each case, police and airline officials eventually concluded that the individuals posed no threat to the airline or its passengers.

How can we fight Islamophobia in America?

It's clear that there has been a troubling rise in xenophobic political rhetoric, hate speech, and brazen incidents of violence against American Muslim, South Asian, and Arab communities in the United States. In the months following the peak of the Syrian refugee crisis, hate crimes against American Muslims tripled. In recent days, police in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been investigating the execution-style murders of three young American Muslims. 

With demographic anxiety and political rhetoric fueling discrimination and hostility, the Ford Foundation together with the New York Community Trust, the New York Foundation, and Philanthropy New York hosted a discussion on ''Confronting Islamophobia in America Today.'' Leaders from the nonprofit, government, social service, and philanthropic sectors came together to discuss the major issues affecting these minority communities, and to strategize about how to advance inclusion. Here are some highlights from the day's conversations. We're at risk of failing a generation of American Muslims Participants agreed that discrimination and bigotry are worse for American Muslims today than they were in the months following 9/11.

Why These Muslim Kids Are Scared Of A Donald Trump Presidency

Sarah Eltabib's 10-year-old daughter came home from school one day in March and asked if Donald Trump will really build a wall, and if that would mean Muslims like her would have to leave the U.S. She said she definitely wouldn't vote from Trump if she was old enough to cast a ballot. 

Mahnaz Tantawi's 9-year-old son said a classmate told him that ''Muslims are killing everybody.'' 

He had a snappy rejoinder, which he recounted over dinner with his parents: ''Very few people are in ISIS, and that doesn't count as all Muslims.''

These kids are extraordinarily resilient and high-spirited, like kids tend to be, but it's distressing that this is the America in which they have to grow up in 2016.

Obama's scathing takedown of Trump: The president highlights just how isolated and unhinged the GOP nominee is

President Obama delivered some remarks Monday that were ostensibly intended to update the American public on the administration's ongoing military campaign against the Islamic State, but the big news Obama made came in the form of a scathing rebuke of Donald Trump's posture on terrorism. Earlier this week, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee laid out a series of monstrous proposals that would enshrine religious discrimination as official U.S. policy and treat the country's Muslim population as suspected criminals. A clearly angry President Obama, who was a target of Trump's conspiratorial gibbering, responded with an explanation of how literally everything Trump wants to do is stupid and backwards.

Trump, in his speech, promised to unilaterally suspend all immigration from ''areas of the world when there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies.'' He also accused American Muslims of being knowing accomplices in acts of domestic terrorism ''they know what's going on,'' as Trump put it. Here's what the president had to say in response to Trump, in part:

Trump-Advising General Defends Muslim Ban

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is also open to waterboarding and killing suspected terrorists' families.

Former Defense Intelligence Agency director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn expressed his support for Donald Trump's extreme national security positions in an interview released Thursday including a ban on Muslim entry.

But the informal advisor to Trump's campaign, who headed the Pentagon intelligence agency under the Obama administration until 2014, strained to define those proposals more liberally than the presumptive GOP presidential candidate ever has.

Asked by Mehdi Hasan, host of Al Jazeera English's ''UpFront,'' if he supports the Muslim entry ban, Flynn responded, ''Yes.''

He then went on, however, to describe a far narrower policy than the blanket prohibition Trump has proposed.

5 Bikers Showed Up For An Anti-Muslim Rally. 400 People Had Another Idea

Love is just better at bringing people together.

Holy Islamberg, New York is a small rural enclave in the Catskills that is home to a predominantly Muslim population. The town's name and unique history has often made it a target of Islamophobic rhetoric and threats. 

But on Sunday, the hate Holy Islamberg expected from an anti-Muslim rally was overshadowed by an outpouring of love and support from their interfaith neighbors.

More than 400 people reportedly traveled to Islamberg on Sunday to show a solid front against the American Bikers United Against Jihad, a group whose stated goal is to mobilize like-minded ''patriots'' against ''violent and stealth Jihad,'' which they claim is threatening their freedom and security.

Seattle man charged with hate crime after threatening Northgate mosque

Seattle man charged with hate crime after threatening Northgate mosque

The King County prosecutor has filed a hate-crime charge against Robert Kinder Farris, the Seattle man accused of threatening the Idris Mosque near Northgate earlier this week.

Farris, 37, was charged with one count of malicious harassment, Washington state's hate-crime statute, and will be arraigned June 30. The felony is punishable by up to five years in prison.

He was arrested Tuesday afternoon at his Greenwood apartment after a brief standoff with police and remains in jail on $2 million bail.

According to charging documents, Farris began posting threatening comments about Muslims on his Facebook account Sunday and continued doing so until his arrest. One of his posts included a photo of the Idris Mosque in North Seattle from Google Street View with the comment, ''Idriss [sic] Mosque in Seattle, too many targets to count.'' He also vowed to ''take revenge'' against Muslims, an apparent reference to the gunman who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday.

Trump: No Chance In Hell With Black Millennial Women

Trump: No Chance In Hell With Black Millennial Women

Here in Baltimore, like many other predominately Black cities, Black millennial women aren't fans of Republicans. Forgive me for generalizing- we're not fans of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, and it's not related to our tendency to vote Democrat. As Brittney Cooper, a millennial and assistant professor of women's and gender studies and Africana studies at Rutgers University, puts it: ''Nothing is more dangerous to people of color, particularly black and Latino people, than angry white men with power and no attendant sense of ethics, morality, or justice''. Cooper accurately described Trump; as of right now he arguably has a better chance of appealing to White millennial women (and even that's uncertain).

Black millennial women are pragmatic and hypersensitive to Trump's hyperbolic statements, and this should make him anxious. Because to quote the New York Times: ''We're living in an era when blacks have essentially played kingmaker in the most important elections in the nation (thus also the world).'' Black women voters turned out at the highest rates of ANY race/gender subgroup in both the 2008 and 2012 elections. More than 70 percent of black women voted in 2012, out-voting white women by over four percentage points.

What It's Like To Raise Muslim Kids In America Today

Around the dinner table, Muslim parents talk candidly about the realities of culture, values and Islamophobia.

For nearly a month after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, California, last December, Nilofur Ayub didn't let her four daughters ride public transportation alone. Although her family lives on Long Island, thousands of miles from the incident that was perpetrated by a single radicalized couple, Ayub said the climate of suspicion surrounding those who were visibly Muslim was unbearable.

There was an expectation that all Muslims were somehow answerable for the tragedy, or had to apologize for it, she said, which made simply going out in public a charged affair. And she didn't want her daughters, the youngest of whom is just 10, to suffer for it.

For Ayub, a Pakistani-American who grew up in Brooklyn in the 1970s, this environment is in stark contrast to that of her childhood.

''Just within my lifetime, people's attitudes towards Muslims and appreciation, or even tolerance, of different cultures has gotten worse,'' she said.
