The Muslim teenager was arrested in 2015 after bringing a homemade clock to school.
The suit names Glenn Beck and Ben Shapiro, among others.
The lawsuit claims that a Texas school district systematically discriminates against students of color.
The lawsuit claims the school discriminated against Ahmed Mohamed because of his religion.
Officials will look into whether 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed's civil rights were violated.
He claims he was only comparing them because they're both children .... even though one is a terrorist and one is an innocent kid with a clock.
His arrest was a violation of his civil rights, according to his attorneys.
Ahmed and the misguided uproar over his clock immediately reminded me of a novel that I love, Amy Waldman's The Submission. Typically, I turn to fiction to escape my day-to-day life, but sometimes we need to read stories that force us to reflect on and question the strangeness that is our reality, and this emotionally gripping and thought-provoking novel has stayed with me for that very reason.
When it is legal for authority figures to abuse children and have them arrested on spurious and unsubstantiated charges, can America really be "the land of the free"?
