Do you worry she’ll bomb you?

Im am from the south, and I have grown up listening to elders make racist comments. My mom and dad raised my brother and I to believe that everyone is equal. I never really had a personal encounter with a race issue until I moved into college. My roommates name is Ida and she is muslim. The fact that she was Muslim never has mattered to me, yet to my grandparents it apparently should. When I told them about my super awesome new friend they quickly asked what church she went to. After telling them she was Muslim my grandma asked “Is she a terrorist? Do you worry she’ll bomb you?”
