Great piece by my friend Zainab Chaudary on the particular mix of emotions that many American Muslims feel when we hear about events such as the shocking shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon last week. Says she:
Pain for the families mourning in Oregon. Sadness at this unnecessary loss of life. Outrage at the policies that keep guns in the hands of reckless people, and at the inherent media bias that twists the narrative when a mass murderer isn’t Muslim. Only once I knew who this man was could I process my feelings, both as an American and as a human being.
