Double standard in who is called a ‘terrorist’

AS A Muslim American, I am tired of the double standard when it comes to media coverage of violence not committed by “Muslims.” If Craig Stephen Hicks was a Muslim and the three victims were white, the headlines would be filled with “Muslims” and “terrorist.” But no, this execution-style killing of three students in their home was due to a “parking dispute.” It’s time to stop generalizing the actions of evil people to the whole Muslim community, like they didn’t do with Stephen Hicks.
