Sarah Alzubi is white, and was born in the United States. She was subjected to a road rage incident because she wears hijab.
This first post is a dedication to my Muslim and Hispanic friends, in particular Sarah Alzubi, who endured a road rage incident in Rutherford County, Tennessee. The mosque there, in Murfreesboro, was obstructed and shamefully not extended the warm welcome they should have been. I would like for her, and for all the members of that congregation to know that not all in the county were hate-filled.
