UNC Shooting

It's not every day a complete stranger publicly calls you a terrorist. A terrorist propagandist, to be precise. Nor is it every day that the stranger happens to actually be someone famous--or infamous depending on who you ask.
The tragic shooting of three young university students at UNC Chapel Hill yesterday could have been adopted by the media as yet another indictment of the rampant gun culture in the United States.
The killings come at a time when Muslims in the United State have been the focus of efforts to stop mosque construction, enact targeted anti-Sharia state laws (which are already redundant under the First Amendment), and negatively stereotype Muslims in social discourse.
The anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States isn't just rising, it's really high. An unwillingness and indifference on the part of individuals and institutions to put it in check is a large part of the problem.
