Muslim students concerned by Boston bombing backlash
by James Thorpe
Salma Rezk stepped outside after watching the news of the Boston Marathon bombings, fearful of the stares her hijab would attract.
Rezk is one of many Muslim students at UNC who says she still experiences negative attitudes toward Muslim Americans, 12 years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
UNC sociology professor Charles Kurzman said surveys of the American public suggest anti-Islamic attitudes have continued to rise since 9/11.
