The Ignorance is becoming too embarassing...

Sigh... Two Muslims Imams were kicked off a Delta flight for...being and having the unmitigated gall to look Muslim. For goodness sakes, why would two Islamic religious figures on their way to a religious conference about intolerance against Muslims---want to dress like Muslims? I cannot take it. They were not praying or chanting. They had cleared security. They were selected for additional security and of course, cleared the additional security. The pilot began to taxi on the runway and then suddenly made an announcement that they were returning to remove the two passengers. The pilot said that the Imams were making the passengers uncomfortable, when in fact they just made him uncomfortable. So much so, that the pilot resisted all efforts made by the airline to reason with him. The pilot took off without him. So this pilot better be without a job by the end of this week.

Secondly, minorities need to stand up against this type of bigotry. People started claiming Obama was a Muslim and no sooner were they walking around with Curious George dolls (and other Monkey related items) with Obama's name on it. This is a slippery slope to the overt discrimination of the most disadvantaged ethnic minorities and a large body of people are just itching for the chance to use the N-word at work without repercussions.

Where is Al Sharpton on this? *crickets*
