First of all, existence of some terrorist groups which call their selves ‘Muslim’ is can be seen as the most remarkable reason for islamophobia. To illustrate, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) organizes suicide bomb attacks in many countries and they claim that they justify this attacks with Islam and different interpreting of Quran.

What’s more, due to ISIS’s belief that it represents the Islam, people generalize all Muslims as terrorists.

After that all humanity is the one to blame our love to ourselves and our love to our country and our love to our religion created all these stereotypes we stopped thinking and believing that anything could be better or as good as ourselves or the things we love this is the main reason why we lost humanity when we lose our humanity not only stereotype is found in our world but a lot of unfair

President Trump has a number of motions in place to prohibit individuals from certain races access into America. In situations similar to this it can be difficult for the state to ban racist advertisements when the president holds a huge amount of power.
