And the violence against Muslims begins (again)…

August 26, 2010

The stabbing of the cab driver because he is Muslim should be disturbing to us but based on what I am reading online, many people are just brushing this off. Others are going back to 911, the WTC bombing, etc. Look, we responded to the attackers of 911. In America, we are not supposed to take out our frustration on individuals in the street. Some are saying this isn’t a hate crime. Based on what we know so far, it is. Furthermore, we’re seeing from other videos that people who are thought to be Muslim are coming close to being attacked. Whether you agree with the mosque or not, you should agree that in this country, we should be able to find better ways to express our discontent. This taxidriver has lived here for over 25 years and said he never felt this insecure. We are doing something wrong in America right now. We don’t even have to worry about what the terrorists will do. We’re too busy figthing each other.
