Morgan Spurlock, best-known for his documentary film, "Super Size Me," is receiving praise for “30 Days,” his series on the FX network [see previous posts here and here]. Indeed, the Muslim Public Affairs Council "plans to present one of its 14th annual Media Awards to Spurlock and FX for the episode of '30 Days' called 'Muslims and America,'" in which Dave Stacy, a Christian, spent 30 days living with a Muslim family.
Stacy noted after completing the 30 days:
I have a whole new appreciation for what it’s like to be discriminated against.... A lot of Americans have a stronger sense of nationalism than we do even our own faith.... We’re not as tolerant as we should be.... You can’t stereotype one and a half billion people, or even 500 people, for the actions of five.”
