Minutes after news of the explosion in Manchester last night went live, “Manchester” began trending almost immediately with messages of solidarity, people trying to locate their loved ones, prayers and, sadly, speculations about the attack and its relation to “Muslims.”
Why would people speculate about "Muslims" in relation to mass murder and a suicide bombing? It's a total mystery.
So while bigots spewed their ignorance on Twitter last night, as per usual, many realized that if religion is going to be brought into the discussion, the focus should be shifted onto something much more accurate than calling all Muslims terrorists.
(Laughs.) This is what Muslim Girl is reduced to: arguing against the straw man that ALL Muslims are terrorists.
