You'd get the stares, have people spitting on you, your property would be vandalized and stuff. But nowadays, (this is me, not necessarily every Muslim around my age) I don't notice anything. No one says anything to me anymore... Sure they'd look, but that's it. We haven't been robbed for a while now (al-hamdulilah) and basically, not much happens now. But the hate is still there in their hearts.
This is the case for me and the kids in the Bay Ridge area of New York... Don't know about other parts, but I'm guessing it shouldn't be too different.
