No human being deserves a prejudiced, shallow, yet erroneous and far-reaching depiction of themselves or their community.

I object to further demonization of our Muslim citizens & refugees as 'terrorists'. Is this an extension of the Islamophobia Network? Cancel this agitprop or perhaps you can get Leni" Riefenstahl to co-produce.

I'm signing because I have younger siblings who could be affected socially and mentally. I don't want my younger brothers to watch this and believe that the movie could be actually true, and I don't want people who don't know or understand the (forced) relationship of Terrorism and the Somali community, to get the wrong idea from this movie. I don't understand how K'naan and the rest of HBO can make this movie knowing the drastic affects it'll have on the Somali community and I hope this petition will show K'naan that it ain't cool.

As a Minnesotan, I believe that something portraying Somali Minnesotans, or any Muslim Minnesotans for that matter, is deplorable.
