| Topic: The Western Media: Biased against Muslims?
Posted: 14 April 2008 at 8:56am
When I moved from Africa to the west, I thought I was to see a world of equality and democracy. After five years, I am shocked by the inequality and discrimination that prevails in the Western society. That is why I am parking my bags. I will like to comment on one topic only, the western Media.
I just have a simple truth that has been prevailing on the news headlines on the western media.
When a crime is committed by a person who claims to be a Muslim, the media will identify such a person as a "Muslim man/woman has done so and so".
On the other hand, if the same crime is committed by a Christian or Jew, the media says,"a man/woman has done so and so" ( no religion mentioned in second case)
Is there any justification for this?
Is it racism coupled with Islamophobia?
Is it part of the cool religious war (Non Muslims versus Muslims)?
A British man ( no religion mentioned)whose wife and child were found shot dead in the US is released after being questioned by detectives.. They married in 2003 and moved to the US shortly after their daughter was born.
(BBC) 15 February, 2008 Gunman kills six at US university. A gunman has opened fire on students at a university near Chicago in the United States, killing six people.
The shooting took place at Northern Illinois University, in De Kalb, 65 miles (100km) west of Chicago.
(CNN) -- A 19-year-old gunman (no religion mentioned) who killed eight people and then himself Wednesday at the Westroads Mall in Omaha, Nebraska, left a suicide note, police said.
From the above points can someone tell me why the West claims to practice democracy and yet we are still dreaming for Democracy?
