It is unfortunate that we live in a world where racism can happen anywhere and anytime, and the latest news story we have about it just shows how unfair the world has become.
Muslim-American vlogger Adam Saleh, who has over two million followers on YouTube, was kicked out of a Delta Airlines plane after he was heard speaking in Arabic to his mother and to a friend.
The YouTuber posted a video on the plane on his Facebook page denouncing the event. It seems as if the only “crime” Saleh committed was to speak in Arabic instead of English.
We can only hope that this awful event will make people think twice before prejudging someone just because they speak a different language or because of the colour of their skin.
Everyday, people like Saleh are treated like terrorists for being Muslim and for not fitting the standards that people consider “safe.”
Adam Saleh was born in Brooklyn, New York, and even though he is only 23, he is one of the most prominent YouTubbers already, with millions of followers and more than 250,000 followers on Twitter.
