Is This Ad Campaign Racist?
“U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Seattle, says so. In a letter to the FBI requesting they pull the campaign from Seattle buses, McDermott sounds off on what he says is “offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities” and “encourages racial and religious profiling.”
The ad shows sixteen faces of wanted terrorists, all of whom appear to be from predominantly Muslim regions. McDermott calls foul, writing that the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list includes people of other races and “associations with other religions and causes.”
“But their faces are missing from this campaign,” he writes.”
WTF? Their faces are missing? Someone needs to direct this idiot to the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” page. On it he’ll find a list of 32 names and a link to each of their biographies, they represent a broad strata of… Muslim terrorists. A grand total of 2 are not Muslim & not affiliated with Muslim terrorist organizations. I’ll let the Representative figure that out.
