I have serious concerns about Islam.
Not based on CNN.
Based on their own words. And based on the meaning they give those words.
Peace, Equality, Justice are three examples of words that DO NOT mean the same thing.
Worse than the Taliban’ - new law rolls back rights for Afghan women
The final document has not been published, but the law is believed to contain articles that rule women cannot leave the house without their husbands' permission, that they can only seek work, education or visit the doctor with their husbands' permission, and that they cannot refuse their husband sex.
Nadia's husband, to avenge a dispute he had with her father, cut off her nose and ear while she was sleeping. She has undergone six operations and needs more. "I don't know anything about happiness," 17-year-old Nadia said. (Photo: Lynsey Addario for The New York Times

Can't help noticing how OFTEN you inject the word 'HATE' into every possible sentence
Is it part of an agenda ?
Or do you just like the sound of the word 'HATE' ?
I don't see anyone else using it anywhere near as often as you
It's almost as if you're using the drip-drip technique of brainwashing
Almost as if you use it (maybe subconsciously ?) to engrave it into people's minds
Hope you won't mind the observation
Peace and hugs

Maybe it's my age which brings with it a lack of experience, or maybe I'm just not very open-minded, but so far I don't think I've heard much if ANY negativity towards Islam. There plenty of negativity towards terrorists (and the FACT is, the majority of terrorist activity against the U.S. is related to Islam, so people have the right to think cautiously about Islam).
Since you used African-Americans as an example, I will use it too.
Let's say that African-Americans started to blow themselves up in an attempt to kill thousands of innocent civilians. Then yes, I would think negatively towards Black people because they are trying to destroy my country. Black people are not inherently bad (neither is Islam), but when people who are members of a particular group begin to hurt you or people you love (and they often do it in the name of that group), it is completely logical to second guess that particular group. No if's and's or but's. Sheesh.
