Sudanese American parents look at Ahmed Mohamed and think of their own kids

The now famous Sudanese American Texan, Ahmed Mohamed, captured the attention of the world when he was arrested for bringing a clock to school.

Now that the hubbub has died down, there's a group of people left thinking. For some parents here in the US, it was a reminder of how their own children may be treated as they grow up in America as Black Muslim girls and boys.

Reported for PRI's The World.

(PS- the three men in this story have a last name of Elhassan.
No, they are not related. It's a common Sudanese name.)
