RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I am saddened by the "media psychology" being used portraying Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a Somali-born, 19 year-old student from Oregon State University with images of the glistening X-Mas tree lights over his face and the crowds at Pioneer Square looking up as if they are praying and use of “language” to create fear, bias and hatred.
I encourage Oregonians to ask "what was going on with him," rather than "what's wrong with him?" I advocate for supporting the family (mother, father, siblings, and extended family) who have stated "no comment" to media inquiries and remove barriers to speak publically, respond to questions and find answers to a difficult problem.
