Transcript for American Muslim children describe prejudice they've faced: Part 6
Over this past year of reporting we have met a lot of people. How are you? But along the way there was a group of children in Denver who made us think, first they told us things they love about being American. Our friends, our neighbors and the food, I like pizza and -- Right. My parents, they've taught me is, this is the land of opportunity. They are American dreams. Maybe a doctor. A doctor is good. Or a president. Or a president? That's like you're fourth choice is to be a president. Reporter: But then other stories in the room. This young woman was on a train when an apparently unstable man started yelling. . And another girl -- They came up to me and asked do you have a bomb in your backpack. And one young man thinking about the things he's been called at school. The boy that said I was a terrorist, I actually ignored him. And then -- And he wouldn't stop saying it. He was suspended for three days. Reporter: Eventually that boy reached out. He came and apologized, and said that, he was sorry for calling me a terrorist.
