    I Wish I Had More Muslim Friends

    I am not Muslim myself, but I've had a few Muslim friends over the years, and they were all kind, understanding, fun-loving people. None of them drank, had baby-momma drama, or even swore that frequently. Islamophobia is stupid. If you ask me, Muslims are some of the best people...

    Yes, I am Muslim. No,

    I'm not a terrorist. I respect people just as much as others do. I don't support killing other humans. People are not the ones to determine who is worthy of life and who is not. Please consider the feeling of others before saying anything that could might hurt them in a way.
