After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 many American-born Muslims experienced stinging personal attacks. Until that day, many were able to integrate seamlessly into their communities and enhance the fabric of American life. But after 9/11, all that changed.

From the fervor over the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ to the sanctioned racial profiling of people who “look Arab,” it’s clear that our nation has a long way to go before it can live up to its ‘melting pot’ philosophy.

A new reality show from TLC aims to allow the rest of country into some of the lives of our Muslim-American neighbors to show that we are more similar that some may think.

In All-American Muslim, the show follows five families as they plan a wedding, gear up for the birth of a baby, and show that–despite what some may think–they are as American as everyone else.

But will it help?

By seeing images of American-born Muslims on TV, will America become more tolerant?  What do you think? Will you be watching?
