Islamophobia in ‘Merica

Instead of titling this article Islamophobia in America, I decided to title it Islamophobia in ‘Merica. As America is categorized as a nation, ‘Merica (a colloquial term used by the younger generations) epitomizes the entire American experience in a stereotypical way. As much as I hate to admit this, being Islamophobic seems to be stereotypical for Americans. Despite being a country founded by immigrants, Americans nowadays tend to be ignorant of other identities and backgrounds that are different from their own.
