On anti-Muslim bigotry
Unfortunately, mockery of Arabs and Muslims is becoming de rigeur in many social circles. Not too surprisingly, much of this is occurring among those who fifty years ago called adult black males "boy" or "nigger" and black children "pickaninnies," but unfortunately it is expanding way beyond that group to many otherwise decent, well-informed individuals. It's a disgusting and very dangerous development, and it certainly doesn't reflect well on us as Americans. Given our history, we should know better.
