May God have mercy on us

I can’t help it. I know it’s viewed as stereotypical but when I’m around Muslims I am defensive, wary, I take seriously Muslims shouting “death to American, Islam will bury you and behead those who deny Allah.” It’s the same with black people. Their lack of impulse control and history of violence makes me defensive and wary therefore I avoid them and only engage them if they say hello or otherwise act normal, sorry, I can’t help it. Watching the “knockout game” where black guys indiscriminately punch out white people for nothing but a video and a laugh and with all this TV coverage about black lives matter and the constant violence and destruction forces me to be concerned about my safety and that of my family.
