Americans sometimes think that all Muslims are terrorists because of al Qaeda. I don;t believe that, in fact, I think Islam is a very fascinating religion. Don't sweat it. I think that if you are nice and sweet and loving towards others, they will accept you as they accept other people. Anyone who thinks Muslims are bad and is very prejudiced, please steer clear of them. Good luck!

Some narrow-minded people always associate muslims with terrorists. That's just the way it goes and nobody is never going to change their minds. But of course that doesn't mean all of them think that. Fitting in American society as a muslim would be very hard I suppose because there's always those people who will look at muslims with terrorism in mind.

You must show people you are a peaceful person. Show them not all Muslims are bad people. They need to realize that there's a huge difference in being a Muslim and a Muslim Extremist. The sad reality is the radical Islamists have done well at silencing peaceful Muslims and therefor gives all Muslims a bad reputation. Because of events like September 11 and the bombings in Boston some or a lot of people now stereotype all Muslims because of the extremists. More peaceful and true Muslims like yourself need to show many you are good people. It's sad you all get judges because of the evil ones. I'm a Christian and I am not judged because of the Westboro Baptist Church morons.

I'm a Muslim too and I was born and raised in America and this is where I've lived my whole life. America is home to millions of Muslims.
Unfortunately, some narrow-minded, ignorant people who live in a bubble think all Muslims are terrorists. As we both know, that is just wrong. If you follow Islam correctly, it'll show people what a great and peaceful religion this is.
Just make friends. Talk to people. Be yourself. And if anyone is rude to you because you're a Muslims (like if they swear at you or Islam or anything), ignore them or treat them with kindness.
"And the servants of Most Gracious (God) are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say "Peace!" (Quran 25:63)

Btw, you don't have to give up anything to fit in this society. Being an American doesn't mean giving something up; it means gaining something, because you're part of a beautiful spectrum of faiths and backgrounds. I just thought I'd mention that because some people think that in order to fit in this society, you must change yourself or give up something. In a way, you do have to. (After all, this is the 'melting pot'.) But not when it comes to religion.
