You don’t build cultural exchange on a foundation that’s a rehash of the old racist Arab kidnapping trope. It’s completely ridiculous for you to think that Muslims should just be fine with it, because yaaaaay representation! Nope. By the way, Muslims did have a somewhat normal representation on TLC. The problem was that All-American Muslim didn’t paint an extreme enough picture for the American public, so it got low ratings and was essentially protested off the air. Womp.
