  1. The media play a HUGE part in reinforcing negative steotypes of Muslims! Education is key here; people need to do their own thinking and research if they want to understand an issue better, or to understand their fellow neighbor better.In other words, don’t be a sheep; a follower. Dare to think progressively. Read. Find out information. Talk to people. Do whatever it takes to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
