In this blog post, I continue the previous posts (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5), which I started when I wondered what stereotype I fit that would cause someone to think that I would welcome anti-Muslim emails. That email stimulated me to do some research and give substantive answers to the questions that were asked. Investigating a topic gives me inspiration for writing,  as my research about lynchings in 1907 led to my novel Well Considered.

[Continuing:  the anti-Muslim email statement is on the left, and my response—a list of prominent Muslim Americans—is indented and italicized on the right.]
