Most Americans are good people...but there is a lot of Islamophobia in the US. This is a good video exposing some of those feelings by ABC Primetime
ABC News Feb 2, 2011- Two young women walk into a coffee shop to apply for a job in the kitchen when something strange happens: the manager seems oddly reluctant to let them fill out an application. Then, in full view of customers, out it comes: the real reason the manager isn't interested in hiring them? They are deaf.
It's a shocking violation of the law, or it would be if this weren't an episode of "What Would You Do?" The manager and the deaf job applicants are actors. Of course the customers don't know that. How will they respond to a display of the kind of discrimination this country outlawed two decades ago? What would you do?

Uploaded on Sep 13, 2011
There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes."
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes asks men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. "It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence."
