THERE WAS ONCE A BOY …. A MUSLIM BOY
OVERZEALOUS OR IDIOCY?
On Sunday, September 13, 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed built a homemade clock. It wasn’t especially difficult for him, and the result wasn’t polished — it looked like a mess of wires and circuitry. He was still adjusting to life as a high schooler, and he wanted to bring in something cool to show his teachers.
Mohamed eagerly showed several teachers the clock and explained what it was, but he didn’t get the congratulations he was expecting. Instead, he left school in handcuffs.
Young Mohamed’s story has drawn accusations of racism and Islamophobia, and many — scientists, technologists and members of the general public alike — are expressing shock and outrage. But as with any incident of discrimination, especially in science, the truth is that we aren’t really shocked. And that’s the worst part.
President Obama has tweeted from his official personal account, inviting Ahmed Mohamed to the White House to show him the clock invention that was mistaken for a bomb.
“Cool clock, Ahmed,” the president tweeted today. “Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
