this is why I questioned the comprehension skills of you two after your replies...
which brings me back... what happens if its a muslim? you don't think there is a chance of society turning against or showing more anger towards them?

I really don't think we need to start blatantly insulting one another's intelligence while ignoring the valid points brought up by both sides. Let's talk like adults.
EDIT And on that note, I'll say that when I referred to spewing sh**, I offer that only in response to society's group behavior. I don't mean to insult your intelligence with it, I just disagree with that line of thought (And this was before things got quite so feisty).

no, this not correct. In this life, if muslims continue to be the ones setting off bombs or trying to bomb people in america the stereotyping will be reinforced. That is why I originally said what if its discovered to be a muslim who did it? Currently the american population associates terrorist acts with muslims. I didn't make that up.
So you guys jumping all over me about it is why I fired back at you guys. but like you guys I to am tired of this and pretty much covered everything I wanted to say on the sideshow...

Look, you're continuing to ignore the vast majority of what I'm saying. If we can't do this rationally, then you're right, let's just not do it at all.
No hard feelings Fitz. Seriously. Just a large difference in opinion.

I agree that religious groups and ethnic groups shouldn't have to earn the right not to be discriminated against. It's not fair to the majority... But sometimes the minority ruins it for the majority in the court of public opinion...
-When a guy shows up decapiteted in a barrel in Texas we assume it's Mexican Cartel.
- After the Rodney King beating we new it was Black dudes were rioting (even if it wasn't on TV)...
I personally saw Muslim Americans celebratin in the street in Paterson NJ on 9/11. Those people ruin it for the Majority who are good citizens... It's up to them to tear down the sterotypes, fair or not.
I don't know who bombed Boston. I do know that they are scum no matter what color they are and beliefs they have.
NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORIST, but all terrorist are Muslim..and unfortunately stereotypes are based on reality..but in regards to Boston it was probably some deranged white dude. Caucasians be crazy
