Road Tripping Across America As A Muslim Man

Islamophobia is at an all time high here in America, with the fear of ISIS attacks and terrorist acts on everyone's minds.

So imagine what it must be like to be a Muslim man of Arabic descent here in America these days...scary, right?

Now imagine what it would be like for this muslim guy to take a road trip across the U.S., stopping off in some of the most hate-filled cities in America while fitting a racial profile.

Well, as always America is full of surprises, and even though the media makes us think Vice journalist Abdullah Saeed would be shot on sight in certain states his trip was actually quite pleasant.

Bizarre, but pleasant. (NSFW due to language)

In the summer of 2015 Abdullah Saeed, Wilbert L. Cooper and Martina de Alba went road tripping from L.A. to D.C. in an RV for a show on Viceland called Vice Does America.

After watching a few episodes it seems to me like it's a more realistic look at today's America than the news media portrays, with less fear and more brotherhood.
