As a Muslim, it has been heartbreaking to watch how people of certain races are being murdered just for being themselves. Our religion teaches that we must stand up against any injustice committed against anyone whether they look like us or not. This issue is something that needs to be addressed in our communities. Are we teaching our children to look down upon other races or are we doing that ourselves? In his final sermon, our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “O people! Your God is one and your forefather (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than a non- Arab and a non- Arab is not better than an Arab, and a white person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a white person except in piety (Narrated in Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal). He wanted those in attendance to let others who were not there know about this message. This message is also tell  us  not to be proud of our own races for who gave us our race and ethnicity? Were we able to choose who we are? We have no control over this and must realize this and submit to our Lord who created us all equally. This was the exact reason for Shaytan’s downfall where  he thought he was made out of something more superior than clay and mud. We have to remember where we came from and that we all bleed the same color. All lives should matter to us as Muslims, not just the ones that look like us.
