Fear and Hatred

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/college-student-removed-from-flight-after-speaking-arabic-on-plane/article29654837/

This is what fear and hatred does to people.  I bet that person who reported the student is feeling like a hero.  I don’t know what else to say.

  1. This makes me SO angry! 😦
    Fear, hatred, ignorance…too prevalent in our world…sad that it exists…I’m not sure what we can really do about it…but, I will keep fighting it until the day I die!
    (((HUGS)))

  2. yeah, i’ve read about this on FB. this is such a BS. it’s not even safe anymore to speak your own mother tongue if it’s arabic? this is a slap on the face to all who speak arabic, regardless where they come from. this is bluntly a discrimination. period.

  3. I think I had read about this too. Makes my blood boil. What a horrible feeling of helplessness! Ignorant and uninformed people like that woman should not be allowed to fly. They are a menace to society.

  4. At some level, people are becoming so xenophobic that I am nearly speechless. How to muster up the words to convey one’s frustration when all around is such stupidity?
