Prejudice continues to linger in wake of 9-11

Editorial Editor Alisha Cayce - Wednesday, October 06, 2010 By Alisha Cayce

The tragic screams of wounded Americans, the turmoil of falling debris from the World Trade Center, and the unbearable truth of deceased loved ones distorted our nation on Sept. 11, 2001.

Now, nearly a decade later, America is still hurting.

The root of all this pain came from terrorists who took the lives of 2,800 people.

As the ninth anniversary of September 11 comes to pass, Muslims and Middle Eastern Americans continue to be wrongfully targeted and suspected of being terrorists, not only on the streets, but in airports as well. There are still people nearly 10 years later who have fears and prejudices towards this group of people because of this tragedy.
