Valarie Kaur, director of Groundswell, said it best: “We are hungry to see ourselves in another.”
Home Improvement chain Lowe’s recent decisions to pull their advertising from TLC’s popular series “All-American Muslim” is a disturbing reminder that there exist among us those who would seek to use bigotry as a tool to prevent all of us from truly seeing each other.
For that reason alone, I’m joining my friends and over 24,000 Americans in expressing my anger regarding Lowe’s and several advertisers DECISION to terminate their sponsorship of the program. These companies have done so at the behest of the Florida Family Association, a hate group whose toxic message uses religion to marginalize Americans like you and I and foster an environment of fear.
In the case of “All-American Muslim," culture warriors are opposed to the program because it portrays Muslims as everyday citizens and includes no extremist agenda.
We can’t allow this group or their ideology to succeed. Because whoever you are; they’re coming for you. You’re next.
